    that all depends on what type of results you want from dealing with them.  if you are trying to get a positive response from an irrational person, then you must deal logically with them to try and obtain some sort of logical response.

    If you do not care about the response you get, then you can deal with them illogically all you want with no real recourse.

    Of course, you don't want to deal with a logical person illogically, even if you don't care about the response, because they will in turn treat you logically and make you look foolish.

    Are you asking about people in general or in certain situations or on an individual basis? Your question is not clear enough for me to give you a definitive answer. So I will give a broad answer. How do you know what is logical or illogical? When the word "we" is used, it is, presumably, coming from a perspective of inclusion; there is also an assumption or presumption that the"we" is standing on common ground. So if "we" choose to deal with those outside of "we" logically, aren't we assuming that "they" expect that?
    If "we" decide to deal with "them" illogically, aren't "we" stepping outside of "our" mindset to be logical? Or have "we" penned rules and regulations for when "we" are decisively illogical?
    Have "we" established what is logical or illogical? Have those outside of "we" agreed with those standards? A lot to think about.
