    Ethics is a complicated issue.

    No, it never is. A lot of people seem to think so though, a lot of people are idiots as well.

    Yeah that's exactly what happens. Phone calls with service desks create a form of depersonalization for certain people. As if they are not talking to a live person.
    A bit strange though, since I am personally even more sensitive when it comes to phone calls : I put all my focus to getting the voice intonations etc. from the other person because my Fe has no visual to rely on + I am usually superfriendly on the phone (mainly cause that's also what gets you from A to B the fastest, instead of shouting).

    Driving in cars is also another lame ass excuse for a lot of people to act totally different, then when face to face. Though I think most of these people are hardly aware of their own asocial behavior.

    But even in a real life one on one conversation we still must not underestimate the power of projections and prejudice. I think outrage against someone is rarely justified. (But if necessary you also have to ! You still need a minimum of assertiveness to deal with folks.)

    Ok to bring in an extreme example: child abuse, even if the parent is having a hard time in life, do you think it's justified to abuse the child? that's the type of situation i'm talking about mostly.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    yeah, well, ofcourse not. That's like the biggest no for anyone with a minimal ethical framework. But those kind of situations are really deeply rooted in people and depend on a lot of things in the realm of their own psychology and possibly intelligence. Besides, a matter like child abuse, really isn't just about being rude to someone anymore. That's a felony and has more to do with psychopathology than average social behavior.

    yeah you did.
    People who've had it hard themselves are the first ones imo who should know better when dealing with others.

    Eh, this is kind of hard, I don't think I can vote. I'm conflicted.

    Cause I don't think it's right, but I don't know anyone that doesn't do that in some way or another, including myself. So it just, is what it is. We are all in our own little worlds. Some more than others. And really if you think about it, if we are just being us, the way we were made, then we kind of are just doing what we're designed to do. Our egos are designed to protect us. So how can I say that it's really wrong....? It's like saying nature is wrong.

    There's always a reason behind someone's actions anyways. And some actions are just less preferred.
