    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Irrationality is talking or acting without regard of rationality. Usually pejorative, the term is used to describe thinking and actions which are, or appear to be, less useful or logical than the rational alternatives. There is a clear tendency to view our own thoughts, words, and actions as rational and to see those who disagree as irrational.

    Types of behavior which are often described as irrational include:

    offense or anger at a situation that has not yet occurred
    unrealistic expectations
    irrationality in the form of a mental illness, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depressive disorder, and paranoia.
