Question: does this have anything to do with rationality, or is it just a cliche
Situation: someone finds it very difficult to enjoy herself when she has work that must be done. She has, generally up till now, usually been more of a person to put play before work, in terms of watching tv or relaxing, friends, etc. But now, she is seeing that the 'happiness' she derives from those events is always limited because she becomes disappointed if she doesn't get her work done, etc. She has expressed that, even though she has a habit of doing play before work, she is coming to see that she is actually happier when she gets her work out of the way, and more and more unhappy when she puts work off.
I am wondering if "rational" types have a harder time with that scenario as above, and ultimately come to her conclusion,
as opposed to "irrational" types being much more able to mix play and work, and either alternate or go from one to another, etc.
Do you see any sort of correlation, or is it unrelated to types, etc. ?
