Default Re: reasonable vs. rational

I agree that rational is 'coldly logical' and 'reasonable' is a feeling. I tell my reasonable is close to 'understandable.' If a restaurant has reasonable prices, then they aren't high or low--they're 'understandable,' considering the quality and portions of the food you get.

If a person is behaving 'reasonably,' it means you can understand why they're behaving the way they are.
