I think this may have to do with different personality types.
One seems to dwell on negative experiences in the past, the other looks at the promise of the future, and how to fully exploit the tools they have, with or without limitations.
Hence why one drops a magnificent deuce in their living room, whilst another leaves a dusty old turd in their closet.
I guess the best we can all do is be understanding and accepting of Both types of personalities.
I see three personality types:
Those that dwell on negative past experiences, those that look to the promise of the future, and shills that are selling a product.
