So while we all want to win an argument, not making an enemy in the process can be even more important.
When the conversation gets heated, we tend to raise our voices and talk faster. This is a dangerous path because now the ability of both sides to change their minds is close to zero. We dig even deeper into our initial positions and beliefs and no matter how good an argument is, it is not going to be received by the other side.
You can sense this happening when people rush to talk over one another.
From conflicts with colleagues or family, frustrations at work, or even being stuck in traffic - our daily lives are not short on stress. These common upsets - "psychosocial stressors" - incite our emotions, and our brains are equipped with strategies to help regulate them: we might use self-control to override the instinct to focus only on the negative, or reframe stressful situations in a different light to make them less distressing.
This seems to be the new mantra among the responsible people who are worried about themselves and their families. Large supply chains have a greater chance of transmitting diseases. Small shops also need our business to survive this catastrophe.
These small shops are also trying very hard to follow all CDC recommendations regarding protective gear and social distancing.
