What are some things that just make sense to you that other people don’t seem to understand?

That this question is grounded in logic is something that is completely “illogical” to me, but which seems generally accepted.
The difference is in the word ‘ logical ‘ as it is popularly used, and the mathematical philosophical study called ‘ Logic ‘.

Logic is the study of the form of arguments.It studies BV. The relationship between the assumptions (the Premiss) and the conclusion. It also studies logical connections (‘ and ‘ and ‘ or ‘) as well as quantification in ‘ N ‘ theorem (‘ Some ‘, ‘ none ‘, ‘ all ‘, etc.).

Characteristic of the logic is that it is about the form of arguments, not the content.An argument is valid if the shape is correct.An argument is correct if it is valid, and the premisses are also true.Such as:

-All mice love all the cheeses.
-The moon is of cheese.
Conclusion: All Mice love the moon.

The above argument makes sense, as it is valid.If the premisses are true, the truth is transferred to the conclusion, and so the conclusion is true. However, it is not correct, because the moon is not of cheese. Logic initially animates itself with the validity of the arguments.

A logical system is a collection of axioms that lays down rules on the validity of an argument.There are many different types of logical systems. An example is temporal logic, which is concerned with arguments in which the validity of the theorem depends on the moment in time in which the argument is given. For example, ‘ I am happy ‘ may have been a correct premiss, but not today. What logicians are trying to figure out are the formal rules that determine the impact on the general validity of such a temporal premise in a formal argument. It’s very technical all.

So, strictly speaking, it is nonsense to talk about ‘ logically ‘ in the context of your question.This question does not belong in the category ‘ Logic (philosophy) ‘, but in the ‘ things of everyday ‘ category.

‘, ‘ I assume that you use ‘ logically ‘ in the sense of ‘ needless to say ‘, but here are some thingies:

  • Silence is not the same as embarrassment.

A person may be quiet because of all sorts of reasons including positive and negative, and the best way to find out why someone is silent is to ask them. As a human being, we are often inclined to fill in ‘ uncomfortable ‘ moments with negative prejudices.

  • Nervousness is not the same as uncertainty.
  • In my opinion, it is always important to take into account neurodivergence. People are not all the same. We share shared biological characteristics, but many people also have neurological differences compared to the ‘ normal ‘ human being (every brain is basically unique as far as I know, but we are generally inclined at first glance about the other to think like neurotypical). There are a countless number of mental disorders, including anxiety disorders etc. Uncertainty ultimately relates to your posture, but nervousness is not necessarily. For example, a ‘ sensitive ‘ person becomes more nervous than someone who is less sensitive. This has to do with biological predisposition and people differences in biological predisposition. High sensitivity is biologically determined and overstimulation is a thing, organic and in essence no chosen attitude towards business. Self-confidence essentially comes down to an attitude and is not always read off through non verbal behavior. People often confuse nervousness with uncertainty.

  • Political ideologies are subjective but that does not mean that they are all equally good or all have to be accepted.
  • Ideologies can be dangerous and it is never wise to fully identify yourself with it.
  • Critical thinking, especially thinking of yourself, are important things to keep stimulating. A problem of hanging on ideologies is that it can weaken your abilities to think critically by feeding laziness (in thinking) and group thinking.

  • Relativism in any area, is not to say that there can be no hierarchies and that every view is suddenly worth the same. There is still such a thing as logical reasoning and there are still stronger and weaker arguments.
  • This sounds contradictory but this is not so. If the truth (for example, in moral terms) is relative, it just means that objectivity can never be found and that things are viewed in relation to something else. However, things are still higher, lower, better and worse, etc.

  • Attribution to life is by definition subjective but there is such a thing as subjective truth.
  • The meaning you give to your life is a truth for you as an individual but is completely subjective. But it is a truth. Subjectivity and truth do not need to exclude each other.

  • We are all unique but not special.
  • ‘ Special ‘ is a relational notion and this is something many of us are for just some people around us. We are unique in the sense that we are an aggregate of experiences experienced by ourselves with our own perspective, anatomy, physiology, etc. No person is the same. However, this does not make us special but unique. However, our uniqueness does not mean that we deserve special treatment as individuals.

  • Life is by definition unfair and that will always stay that way.
  • Differences create hierarchies and differences are inevitable. Stronger, bigger, weaker, more beautiful, uglier, wider, thicker, thinner, smarter… These notions express themselves in all facets of life and therefore also in people. The fact that these differences are there is not to say that our basic human dignity is being deprived. It is at what level you look at it, but as a human being we are all equal (in the base).

  • From the necessary unfairness of life does not follow that we cannot change anything.
  • Things can still be better compared to moments of the past.

  • In my opinion, self-responsibility is one of the most important traits to have and makes your life a lot easier.
  • At the same time, it is important to realise that this is not always possible for everyone at all times. A human being is born with a brain, genetic predisposition etc. Making some people more likely to take responsibility than other people. Our free will goes so far, and much is genetically or determined by the environment. Life is one great coherence of contingencies and coincidences.

  • The law of non-contradiction does not always go on. An act or the consequence of an act, for example, can be good and at the same time bad, good for the individual but bad for a group.
  • Concepts are always on multiple levels, from multiple angles to view and completely contextually.

  • Full altruism does not exist, but there are gradations in selfishness and this is not bad.
  • (This is the definition of the word altruism.)

  • Relationships are by definition temporary, also with the most loyal people you know.
  • Everyone can die at any time and in essence life is one big risk. Everything can always happen, so it’s never wise to assume that your relatives, friends or anyone else will live tomorrow or later. I do not say this to stop your mind full of hopelessness and sadness, but rather to leave you there.

  • Contradictions give value to life: Good, bad, death, life, rich, poor…
