      You'll be more rational when you learn Slovak, it would appear, or any other language, including English as a non-native speaker, for that matter. Researchers have detected that "when people use a foreign language, their decisions tend to be less biased, more analytic, more systematic." Here's more about the recent experiments:

      BTW, earlier studies indicated that speaking two or more languages may delay mental decline at a more mature age, e.g.:

      So... should anyone see Slovak as their road to enhanced rationality, here's a link to our Slovak language courses:
