Why do I always get sidetracked by the ways we set about understanding?

I constantly re-discover that I am interested in how people understand things in ways where the way (not just what) they understand meets broader normative values they subscribe to. Of course, there are parallels with the ways people in general do things and the methods researchers use to understand those people.

Perhaps this interest is both a product of and contributing factor in my enthusiasm for conversations about social theory in slightly inappropriate contexts? Is this taking reflexivity too far?

What I do know is that it usually means a lot of unanticipated reading.
