Like most things in life, it depends. If there is an adverse consequence to losing the argument, then be aggressive. Examples include going to court to seek justice for harm that you were caused and knowing you are right.
No we just agree to disagree and change the subject. I never win an argument anyway.
This is funny. As you were writing this question, I was writing this story EP Link
A little bit of a psychic link here, you think? We were thinking along the same lines at the same time. I find that interesting.
I don't get aggressive. I don't think I've ever even been in an argument. I will "debate" pretty passionately though. It depends on the person, but if it's over opinion/taste then neither style is likely to convince.
I don't get aggressive at all. When others get aggressive with me I never fight back. I used to and that never settles anything. So now I will just ignore them. If it is on EP and they are known for bad behavior I will just click the block button. Then the matter is settled for me.
usually I try to disagree in a logical way. Without backup arguments it is hard to have an intelligent debate. However, when I know they are wrong (and dont have a clue about a topic) that is when I get heated about it. Know your stuff before you fight ;)
No I don't get aggresive I don't think that works. A friendly opinion with an explanation or reason works much better and is more inclined to get results.
No and I'll thump anyone that says different
Thanks lol :-)
I get more heated than I should with some things, most specifically women who are sexist against other women (it truly truly bothers me) but I try not to start aggressive. It's definitely something I have to consciously work at though- my natural inclination is to argue with facts but also occasionally to shoot down opinions I find truly distasteful or ridiculous. I know that I should be civilized in my approach all the time, but I'm still a work in progress sometimes
There's not much point in getting aggressive. It achieves even less here than it does in the real world. When reason fails then it's best to just back off and let people dissolve in their own vitriol.
off course a friendly opinion with a logical explanation and reason
is better but yeah there are things of which i would be having no reasons or i m nt wanting to give reasons for tht bcz to believe in them without looking fro reasons would be going truely with definition of faith and also tht reason is a kind of option there are realities tht are beyond logic and reason of human being and they will beautifully felt by letting reason stay at back for some time...reason leads to this path but itself stays at certain point and after tht there is matter of heart not of mind...i would give beautiful example of miraj shreef by prophet peace be upon him...but surely i would nt loike to be aggressive over it with someone for his reasons or standards!blessings...sunshines!
I can be aggressive but a good argument or another position that is well thought out and expressed (with vigorous debate or gentle conversation) I can respect and in some cases (admittedly, very few) can actually change my position on a subject.
I usually don't get aggressive unless they insult me/my opinion without reason. Even then, I try to back whatever I say up.
No but I'm sleepy and I'm mad cuz this nigga keeps asking for help
