Mathematicians notice patterns

Mathematicians generally like to search for patterns wherever they look because patterns somehow make things easier to draw or to explain and therefore easier for people around to understand. We can see patterns pretty much everywhere starting from a quark to a proton to a neutron to an electron and up to very complex things like human beings and other living beings out there and even stars, galaxies and the entire universe. A recent discussion with a fellow myLotter has led me to notice a few patterns about humans in general: 1. They are very prude 2. They like to shame people that are not having the same moral values as they have 3. They like to make nonsensical claims to support their nonsensical phobias towards certain things 4. They refuse to admit that they are wrong when they are put in uncomfortable situations because they fear being ostracized or hated by society 5. They borrow some patterns from other people even though those patterns are very faulty and they learn those patterns like poetry and they try to shove down everyone's throat those patterns What do you think about humans? Am I right about them or could I be nowhere further from the truth?

As a mathematician, you should be aware of the perils of sweeping generali{s|z}ations...

Why would you not generalize if most people are showing off those characteristics? There are some exceptions indeed but there is a general pattern to notice

@Cristi_Ichim It is a human trait, yes - but many would argue about their individuality. Besides, "90 percent of all statistics are wrong."

@pgntwo They can argue all they want: this does not change the fact that the general patterns seen in others are seen in them as well
