Human behavior oriented to the approval or disapproval of what others do, is severely at odds with the logic.
While logic would dictate that we can claim vehemently for mistakes and we should also applaud with enthusiasm for the successes, in fact vigorously criticize but congratulate demurely, containment, British phlegm.
Politically, when we vote for a candidate who, just under his knees asked us our support at the polls and were further encouraged by promising a wonderful run with the immediate solution of all that no other politician could do in the last 5 centuries, it is unreasonable that we are unbalanced in the approval and disapproval.
Not applicable to congratulate whom only limited to keep a promise. When the debtor attends the bank to pay a loan, you will never find a room full of sandwiches, cake and refreshments table: they charge and you can feel happy if you greet him with a guttural sound.
It is particularly strange how the fans and the coach every time a box makes a goal behaves. The uproar that celebrates the fact shows, leaving no doubt that no one trusted the least in the governance of the players. All words and songs of previous breath out nothing but blatant lies.
In short: another manifestation of the inconsistency of our own behavior is not applaud or criticize logically.
For these reasons, and given that for most it is interesting to know how the psyche works, I repeat what I said several times, you can never know the human mind using logic, rationality, consistency.
