I dislike that because it's similar to saying "most people do/like/make/find/etc. X" even though there is usually no way of having even nearly enough data to make such a claim. Sure, there are many people who fit your description, I'll give you that, but can you really say that about humans in general? I suppose my point is that I don't like (unsupported) generalizations.
