Just to add a note, that was what I concluded from my personal observation, it's a product of my own experience. It may not be true to others, like you. But so far, this "theory" seems true to me most of the time.
By the way, most opinions that one forms are derived from generalisations from one's own experience, are they not? Say, I think this man is good, it is a generalisation based on what I saw and heard about him, this does not imply that he is good in everything. If generalisation makes no sense, then same goes to opinion.
