why do we SHOUT?

One day, a professor asked his students,
'why do we SHOUT instead of speak when we are ANGRY?'
All the students thought for a while. One answered,
'Because we lost our cool. That's why we SHOUT.'
The professor asked again,
'But the person is just right next to you, why
can't we just talk softly but have to SHOUT?'
This time everyone gave their opinions but none
was accepted by the professor.
At last the professor explained,
'When we get ANGRY, our hearts drift apart.
To mask the DISTANCE we felt, we instinctively SHOUT
instead of speak so the other party can hear us.'
But as we SHOUT, we get ANGRIER. And we drift apart
further. So we SHOUT even louder.'
'It is the opposite when we are in love. Not only we
do not shout, we whisper into each other ears. Why?'
'This is because our hearts are very close, almost
never apart. As our love deepen, we reach a state of
communication where there is no need for words.'
'We understand each other well enough just by
exchanging look,' concluded the professor.
'Therefore, when we are arguing, DO NOT speak words
that will make our hearts drift apart.
WAIT a few days. When you feel your hearts are no
longer far apart, pick up the conversation and
continue from there.'
