When you give an explanation.
This is the tenth in a series of posts reflecting on the general decline of civility. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
You may be wondering why I’m talking about road safety? Well, that certainly requires an explanation. In this day and age, we all have to fight that little something inside of us that puts the animal in us first. It is a part of us, and mind you, naming it as a separate entity is just a metaphor to make it easier to talk about, but it is us we are talking about, not another person, not a demon that possesses us, etc.
So, this part of us can be stronger or weaker depending on the situation, depending on the individual, and our measures of controlling this personality also vary. It is true to say that certain models exist, but as in most models in psychology, they are useful for studying the behaviors of an individual, for classifying them, for finding solutions through certain avenues, but they are not applicable in the same way a model of architectural physics would be.
Whether or not you are interested in the rules of civility is a good thing in itself, as long as it doesn’t become a dogma to be applied in order to satisfy an obsessive need for absolute order. People and their well-being must remain the target.
