We are using the word rational in different ways, maybe I am not using the right word. Your say humans are rational b/c their actions follow from their motives.
My version of rationality is more concerned with the motives/emotions themselves. Take a person and show them a video of someone getting shot and dying. The emotional response (if they are normal & healthy) is irrational, a rational actor would stay neutral when watching that video.
