Nietzsche wrote, 'there are rational reasons for abandoning rationalism'. One could read into this, for instance, that in an irrational world behaving irrationally can be a plus in some circumstances. Like, say, you're at a seminar and everyone is gesticulating with their hands, a common yet irrational habit-- speech has no connection with hand movements, you might as well waggle your feet. However to fit in with the crowd you adopt the use of pointless hand waving, emphasizing certain words with a chopping or circular movement of the hand, and you fit in with everyone else :)
