What is interesting and ironic is that the more creative and intelligent the individual, the more difficult it can be to dissuade them from their anger response, since they are better at finding seemingly meaningful connections in what are in fact non-causal relationships, as well as creating internally consistent arguments that support their erroneous position, thus protecting them from uncertainty of ignorance.

Inhibition also goes down, which means the voice in your mind that loves to shout the Physics of No speaks less often and less loudly. In case you were wondering some psychedelic drugs like those found in “magic mushrooms” have a similar effect on the brain.
