A moment on the couch with Dr. Z

I’m a pretty plainspoken guy who just honestly says what is on my mind.
I’m not much interested in psychoanalyzing individuals over the Internet. In fact it is something I very much discourage both in myself and others, with varying degrees of success.
But it is probably true that certain modes of rhetoric have a tendency to follow along with certain psychologies: that, for example, psychologically passive-aggressive people tend to see their own motte-and-bailey approach to argument as virtuous rather than vicious.
