There has been an interesting and consistent dynamic occuring in a small community where I rent out some property to scientists. Best that I can tell they consist mostly of rationals, both gender, all ages, all backgrounds, culture, countries...
There is an evident friction between the rationals and guardians within the microcosm, the rationals tend to hang out together if at all, the guardians I have heard complaining they (the rationals), are anti-social, not team players in the sense of joining in the community, participating, eg fundraisers, local committees, entertainment and sport. That has been a constant complaint, they seem to view the rationals with an intense dislike, very little appreciation for their research and work, in fact some have expressed 'it's not even proper work'. (Science research). Also they complain how impractical the rationals are in day to day life.
I'm unsure if the rationals have any depth of sense of the animosity, the interaction I have with them is basically business and they say everything is fine. It is a small community also, and very regional. It's also quite multi-cultural, but the people that make the effort to 'mix' is commended, and often the children make friends, kind of leading the adults into a relationship of sorts.
It's just a snapshot of a very small area in a very big country. I do not think it would reflect larger communities, there doesn't seem to be the minority under such microscope in bigger, more urban places.
Even ?the naughty behaviour of some of the younger, wilder artisans is forgiven?, but rationals and even the odd idealist are viewed as aliens. 'Odd', 'weird', 'anti-social' (some), and 'hopeless' in day to day life.
There is a further dynamic to the guardian perception of rationals, the artisans become involved, the guardians ?discredit? the rationals, then the artisans ridicule them, (mimic, set them up) it becomes almost a tag-team 'attack'.
I would start with stripping down to what fundamentally informs my life, which is that I'm a seeker on the path...where I stand spiritually is, steadfastly, on a path about love.. (Bell Hooks)
