First, I think it is fair to say we all like our way better. I highlighted this comment because like and dislike have little to do with correct and incorrect
True enough, but sometimes 'like' encompasses more than a straightforward emotional reaction, as people very often use it as a way of saying that what they're doing helps them meet their own personal goals. I.e., as a way of saying 'I don't regret the choices I have made and am making, looking at the options I see around me I still make the same choices, and every other person is free to make their own choices as well, which may very well be different from mine.'
It's no different from anything else in life.
