All part of the mature cognitive process.
(I’m a behaviorist and I’m showing off//)
The problem many ‘smart’ people have is not so much in the argument, per se, but rather in dealing with people who either cannot keep up or simply need more process time.
Engaged in an argument with each other, ‘smart’ people are highly adaptable and can digest an argument very quickly- and often can take that argument and make it fit their preexisting worldview.
Conversely, ‘smart’ people can absorb and digest ideas that were previously unacceptable. It’s all about the mental Benjamins so to speak.
When they own it, they own it.
Fascinating stuff- to me, anyway.
