It’s the people that don’t recognize their zeal that I will sometimes engage in length conversations with.

it’s “zeal” and there’s nothing wrong with zeal.  It means you have enthusiasm for it.  It’s important to you to defend.  The only thing I ever ask of people is that they recognize their zeal from a ‘meta’ point of view, which you do and that’s awesome.

If a cause is important to someone, I’m all for it, so long as they realize they’re on a cause or a quest or that it’s meaningful to them.  It’s the people who say, “It’s the Truth and that’s that” that I try to combat because, well, then they sound religious.  And … not that there’s anything wrong with that per se… but when someone believes they’re beyond religion yet behaves like someone who is religious… it looks a little silly when they can’t see the absurdity of it at least a little.

I don’t think it’s a defect in you at all; it’s just something that matters to you and I think that’s great :)
