Brand loyalties can be a fun way of showing off your style! It’s also understandable how fun it can be to compare from one brand to another, such as liking PlayStation vs Xbox or Batman vs Superman. The brands that we stick to are nothing more than the things we enjoy, and most of the brands we don’t aren’t that different. Yet, somehow, it almost feels like a fight every time someone brings up that they prefer DC over Marvel or something else just as trivial. The problem is just that everyone is overthinking what they like.
There are many reasons why people stick to the brands they enjoy. One of the biggest ones, for example, gaming consoles, is because it’s something they grew up with. Most people who grew up playing Spyro or Crash Bandicoot stuck to playing PlayStation as opposed to those who grew up playing Halo and Fable probably stuck with Xbox. It’s normal for people to stay with the brand they used as a kid. However, as you get older you learn and understand more about the brands you stick to and most likely not as much about the ones you don’t. So getting into the “console wars” can be fun but it’s not worth fighting over since neither console is that different.
Yes, you can provide facts to back up your statement, but when the ultimate point of what you’re saying is “I prefer this better” then your statement is most likely not a statement of what’s better. Not all debates have to have some kind of resolution where the other person needs to come to your side. Sometimes debates are just fun conversation pieces, especially when it comes to brand loyalties like Marvel vs DC. However, if the goal is to make comparisons on the brands you like more, such as clothing or movie studios, then your “I prefer this better” statements can be useful. Comparing brand loyalties can be good for learning new information about the one you may or may not have known about.
It’s just that simple. People can enjoy different things. It doesn’t make them dumb or weird, and it certainly doesn’t make you better than them. Life can be stressful enough and getting into petty arguments won’t help. So, don’t overthink it. It’s okay to disagree, it’s not in people’s nature to agree with everything. Our brand loyalties are nothing more than the things we enjoy. Plain and simple.
