Getting upset over trivial matters? There’s a rational explanation

So while it’s silly to let trivialities infuriate us, the region-beta paradox reminds us that distress doesn’t obey simple rules; there’s no purely objective standard from which it’s possible to judge anyone’s reaction, to anything, as being over the top. All pain hurts. Or, as it’s wisely been put: “The worst thing that’s ever happened to you is the worst thing that’s ever happened to you.” Besides, the region-beta paradox suggests, it might not even be the worst thing that ends up hurting longest.
