  • Are people generally rational or irrational?

    I rationalize a lot, basically everything. I know it's not a good thing, but it it serves me well at times. However, generally, in everyday life, I hardly ever stumble upon a person who I could say that is rational. Not to even mention if I'd try to get into philosophy, especially given my age (21).

    I rationalize a lot, basically everything. I know it's not a good thing, but it it serves me well at times. However, generally, in everyday life, I hardly ever stumble upon a person who I could say that is rational. Not to even mention if I'd try to get into philosophy, especially given my age (21). No matter how rational an argument I make, it gets thrown out the window because "I'm too young" or something. The problem is that I'm very much into philosophy and psychology, and these situations leave me either being rational with people, OR saying what people want to hear in order to get the result I want. However, that's manipulation and I'm not okay with that. I'd much rather be honest, but that doesn't seem to get me anywhere except make people hate me. Also sooner or later people find out what I'm doing, because even tho I'm saying the things they want to hear, I don't actually mean it, so the things I say and my actions don't match at all. E.g. telling people that I want to go out, have fun, make friends, find a partner etc. and then spending the weekends alone not even responding messages. Or even worse, going out and sitting in the corner watching videos on my phone while everyone else is dancing and stuff.

    I'm 25 and thinking about what am I trying to achieve? You watch things on TV and Youtube which makes thing appear sensational, like something really great and important has happened, but we all die in very, VERY short time (considering how long this universe will go on), and nothing really matters. It's only if you choose to engage in it and deliberately avoid thinking about it that it seems like these things matter. So what do I do?
