establishment of causality

we must have read it so many times, a positive corelation doesnot establishes causality..but we still tend to make the mistake in our everyday life. when i was young i remember reading in a survey that olderr men prefer Test matches and younger men ODIs...i thot the reason should be that youth likes the extra energy of odis while maturer men like the nuances of tests....and to prove the fact me being in college liked odis better.

but as slowly but surely i grow accustom to office life routine..suddenly i have found myself liking test matches and the reason being test matches can ease the office ennui for 5 days rather than one slam bang day of odis....so i think test odi comparison for youth older persons are not causal...
so while i avoid the mistake of assuming causality from corelation however i m still open to criticism from generalising from a particular instance..so dont believe me 100%..neways these are intended to make u think rather than no
