One implication of my way of modeling the world is that I desperately wish people weren't so strongly attached to their opinions. For me there's a strong division between personal preferences - things we can like or dislike and it doesn't matter for anyone else - and how I wish things were in the shared space, where I am compelled to look for consensus among all the relevant players.

It's frustrating to me. A lot of people seem to be, "this is what I want, so this is the way it should be". My take is more... "based on what people want, this is the way it should be, and so that's what I want."
