A Love For Arguing
I'm not fond of arguing, diary. I'm fond of reasoning, and that's often a quiet activity. You take all your knowledge with you all time and retrieving it feels natural. When you are with people, it takes time for everyone to get on the same page and contribute productively. That's why in a typical office worker's work life, meetings take half the time and doing actual work only takes the other half. It's incredibly inefficient.
But I have noticed that people love to argue. It has nothing to do with reasoning, they just want to let off steam. Where does all the steam come from, I wonder! I don't know. It's a different type of angst. One that is not satisfied by arguing. They still do it.
I don't get it.
