Some unusual words courtesy http://wordsmith.org/awad/; interesting to know there's a word for such a thing; all are avoidable behaviour.
sequacious (si-KWAY-shuhs) adjective: Unthinkingly following others
misology (mi-SOL-uh-jee) noun: Hatred of logic or reason
verbigeration (vuhr-bij-uh-RAY-shun) noun: Obsessive repetition of meaningless words and phrases
*We* don't do such things, right? Others do.
Under normal, favourable conditions most of us are logical, independent thinkers who speak well.
It is when faced with adversity, a threatening situation, a crisis, when things are not as we expected, that we sometimes feel compelled to be sequacious.
When our boss (or subordinate or spouse) has a valid counterpoint and is more logical, we tend to temporarily become misologists (yes, it is a word).
On getting caught doing something we ought not, or, when an important person in an audience asks a tough question on the weakest area of a presentation we made, we instantly acquire the skill of verbigeration.
