Why does null and true evaluate to null in PostgreSQL but null or true evaluates to true?

I would have thought using null with and or or would've evaluated to null in both cases?

  • OR is defined that if either side is true the expression evaluates to true.
  • AND is defined such that if both sides are true boolean-3VL context, the expression evaluates to true;
  • null is not true.
