Where rationalism can fail


Being right can seriously fail to charm people, and therefore to convince them. (Or to phrase it another way, when dealing with people, ethos and pathos are more useful than logos.)

You can gain negative charisma and really piss people off.

It's less likely to get you laid than carefully-applied stupidity.
