"For another, not everyone is wired the same. This is where we get to my lesson. I am a facts person, in baseball, in sports, in life. If you disagree with me, I want to show you all the facts that prove I'm right, want to engage with you logically, want to make you see the line of thinking. I want to hear your facts in return. Not everyone is wired that way, and there have been studies showing that piling facts into an argument can just cause people to double down on their opposition."
