  •  Research shows that emotions help us prioritize (4+ / 0-)

    and filter incoming information & perceptions.

    That's part of the reason why people don't agree on what's important - everyone has their own priorities.

    Debate is used to share information, not convince others as to the rightness of an opinion. Rightness depends on circumstances, except where actions are always harmful to self & others

    Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
