People Wouldn’t Be Mean To Others, If They Only Knew…

Do you ever wonder why “people” (in general) treat others badly either offensively or defensively. Offensively is they make the first move causing the issue while the defensive player will only attack when attacked upon. This is a very interesting subject because depending on how you look at the situation, you can either react “hotheadedly” and get mad or take the time to figure out why a person either made you mad or got mad at you. I have seen people react about a situation in one scenario, change the parameters a little bit and that same person will react a completely different way.

For example: Let’s say you’re driving down the street and another car flies around you doing 30 mph over the speed limit in that area. Some will get mad and call him an asshole, while others might calmly process that it is not worth it to get mad. That is the obvious difference between reactions. However, put two different people in that situation and tell them prior to the experiment that someone was hit by a car and they were being taken to the hospital to save their life. If they only knew that vital information, they would understand why the person had caused the problem and they would change their opinion. The point is that until you know all the details, you should try to see the situation from a different angle…I try.

I guess this is just one of my psychology rants!

    This is a nice subject that you’ve posted about.
    Yes, if we receive more metadata about a fact, the usual defensive/offensive reaction would change. But there are also different aspects into this.
    Some people are also prone to reaction even if they receive information about why this or that car was flying at a high speed, because they do not want to put themselves in another person’s shoes.
    Of course, many also manipulate, making use of people’s empahty, knowing that if they tell very good stories/excuses, they will get what they want.
