Margaret Thatcher once said: I love argument, I love debate. I don’t expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me, that’s not their job.
The problem is though that nowadays most people just start arguments, refuse agreeing with you and at the same time avoid debating. They just sit there without providing any sort of thought, solution, reasoning or squabble. Worst of all – they don’t listen.
I’m a guy who loves arguments, and I can be very fierce about them. Some people get me wrong, but I don’t do it just for the sake of it. I do it because I’d rather stand up than shut up. It’s how I am. I don’t care about winning, I don’t mind losing face, I just want people to listen, analyze, conclude and start again, until they get to common ground. That’s how I do it, but some people don’t get it.
I’m starting to think I might be wrong. How do you approach arguments?
