we all have similar negative reactions to certain types of behavior.
we can refer to those types of behavior as bad style.
– screaming at a staff
– cheating your wife with a teen
– buying luxury goods
sometimes, when we understand the causes of these types of behavior, we change our mind.
and we do not see them as bad style anymore.
i was thinking what is bad style.
simple definition would be:
bad style is a feeling people have when they see high subjective behavior.
when we see a person unable to control their basic need impulses.
we as a species value a plan.
that what kept us healthy.
bad style might be a basic method of control which limits impulsive behavior.
is a tie badly matched with socks a species method of filtering good decision makers who deserve our attention?
or am i stretching it a bit too much…
what do you think?
