Rationality can seem so cold

Anyone ever debate with someone who was so rational, that what they were saying made intellectual sense, but it seemed so utterly cold? Almost reminds you of a psychopath…

Is it just me, or the more you rationalize, think through something, dissect it, the more distant you are from the emotional aspects of the situation, and the less human you seem?

I get you have to think through things and empathy and rationality are intertwined, but sometimes, it just seems like of you analyze too much, you grow too cold. It’s like some military man who makes the decision to kill off a village to save another one. or something like that. It makes sense, sure, but god, it seems so cold…
