Mystery of Human Behavior Explained

There seems to be two distinct evolutionary variations of human beings emerging, not differences in physicality or intelligence but a psychological difference, a distinct fork in the human evolutionary road too profound to be attributed to simple cultural or generational differences. One variation that is emotionally driven and one that is rationally driven. These aren't matters of maturity or ignorance like we so often want to believe but an actual evolutionary variation in people's psychology where either emotions or rational is the predominant psychological driving force in one's life.

The emotional variation, E-type, is characterized by a lack of mental attention, consistency, curiosity, courage, and effort resulting in irrationality, gullibility, and emotionalism.
E-types value feelings above all else. They tend to suffer more from emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and emotional volatility. They tend to be more creative, artistic, loving and compassionate. They are more trusting and therefore more likely to fall for scams and cons. They are not good problem solvers. They only consider one side of a problem that is emotionally pleasing while ignoring the consequences of the emotionally displeasing side. They tend to be of lower social and economic status but don't take responsibility for that status, it's always the fault of someone or something else and therefore see themselves as a victim and believe they are entitled. They see society as a collective with everyone dependent on and responsible for everyone else rather than a collection of independent individuals. They look to an authority for social and moral guidance and will sacrifice the truth and doing what's right for the sake of someone's feelings. They tend to have a lot of friends.

The rational variation, R-type, is characterized by reason, rational, logic and common sense.
R-types value facts and the truth. They tend to be more critical and inquisitive, they are excellent problem solvers. They solve problems holistically and reason them out by applying logic, rational and past experiences including all the information available. They tend to be more stable socially and professionally regardless what life throws at them. They are more willing to take chances, fail, and learn from those experiences. They take responsibility for themselves, good and bad, and understand the consequences of their actions. They see society as a collection of independent individuals not as a collective. They are difficult to con or scam and they do not look to an authority for social and moral guidance, they know the difference between right and wrong and will not sacrifice the truth or doing what's right for the sake of someone's feelings. They tend to have fewer friends.

These variations are so distinct that it is almost impossible for them to communicate effectively in any meaningful way anymore. They see and process the world around them in completely different ways so any attempt at communication is immediately conflated. These are not subjective cultural differences but objective inter-generational human differences.

That's not to say that either variation is superior or inferior to the other, just distinctly different by their nature and I think it addresses why there is so much social discord. E-types have inappropriate expectations of R-types and vice-versa. Given the two distinctly different ways in which the two variations see the world and process the world around them, it it is tantamount to a bird expecting a dog to fly and then criticizing him if he can't.
