I think I get what you're saying. I like a certain amount of vehemence, but sometimes it gets too much.

Not just about temperament. I mean Tom is a couple of notches up on the yang scale from "they". "They" are yang - maybe frightened-paralyzed yang, but yang too. I'm not advocating a yin approach either but rather perhaps looking at an integrated, holistic approach that is more than the sum of the ying-yang parts. It's a entirely different world view, a different mental model than anything taught in Western schools. Although I think many people feel this tug towards completeness in mid-life or sometime in their own personal adult development. More in posts to follow.

Nice comments, Evelyn. Your post has got me thinking about yin and yang, something my wife has been trying to achieve for years!

Incidentally, if you didn't like Men Are From Mars etc (which I haven't read), you might like "Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps: How We're Different and What to Do About It" (which I have read). Then again, you may dislike that one even more!
