Needing an adversary, someone to feel better than, is part of the need of the ego to prop itself up.

If you don't feel the push to be better than someone else, what do you care what they wear/do/think/love?

The easily triggered adversarial thing is a sign that people don't feel secure enough in who they are, and besting someone else gives them a little better feeling. This can be a habit created in the sports world when young:
"Our team won!"

or "She's wearing an ugly dress!" "You don't know etiquette." "Your favorite band sucks/If you don't like this, then you're a moron." etc...

Xactly!

It's dark. That may mean that the sun has gone out.
Never mind what time it is—it's a crisis.

Great Twilight Zone episode titled 'I Am The Night, Color Me Black'. Worth a viewing.

that's a solid point

personally my challenge is that most of the time i'm a pattern seeking creature (identify risk and seek to neutralize/mitigate it  {#Wink} )

i see a problem and my observation and solution building framework kicks in

my other half swears it is not normal when dining out to draw an efficiency flow chart on a napkin and hand it to the manager on the way out the door
