The writing test is meant to measure the writing skills that you should have learned in your English classes in high school. It also claims to be a measure of how you might do in entry-level composition classes in college.
I don't want to draw attention away from the more philosophical responses to this issue lower down, but it might be helpful to describe a little of how the human brain often generates conflicts and how we have evolved to resolve those conflicts. How, in fact, some of our most recognisably human attributes are hard wired into us.

Following the publication of my book God or Nothing , people have asked me about the “liturgy wars” which for decades have too often divided Catholics. I stated that that is an aberration, because the liturgy is the field par excellence in which Catholics ought to experience unity in the truth, in faith and in love, and consequently that it is inconceivable to celebrate the liturgy while having in one’s heart feelings of fratricidal struggle and rancor. Besides, did Jesus not speak very demanding words about the need to go and be reconciled with one’s brother before presenting his own sacrifice at the altar? (See Mt 5:78-79.)
