Why are you asking, are you trying to start an argument?
Agree with them. <br />
It usually confuses em.
Nod your head and agree with everything and then drop it as if it didnt happen
When people are argumentitive (like me), sometimes it's because they actually want someone to show them another point of view. But you'll have to work hard to convince them of it's validity.
Keep agreeing. And be entertained while the other guy gets more and more upset, angry and red in the face until that guy has a stroke. While you ride with him to the hospital, say, "I guess you were wrong, huh?"
Presenting a better argument will not work since anything and everything you say will invite more of that. Depriving such a person an opportunity to argue will knock them out cold and is the only way to deal with them.
Tell them you are saving your engery for something so much more rewarding!
Noncommittal responses -- "That may be so" or "You might be right" or "If you say so then!" or "Well, alrighty then" or some other useless drivel. Warning, though, some people can carry on an entire conversation all by themselves, and some even argue both sides of the question. Maybe it is better to just duck and run?!
I understand this one !<br />
I took a self development course many years ago, and their advice was ..... say yes, and agree with them. It stops the conversation/argument stone cold.<br />
It's called "fogging" You don't give them anything to continue with the dialogue....can't argue with fog
Those are aggravating little trolls. Full of insecurity, a false sense of confidence, conceit. The narcissistic force is strong in them.<br />
They usually smell funny.
I would tell them, Lets Agree to Disagree. That was like my x fiance he would scream and yell and argue. But now I know others who like a good argument only occasionally and a fair argument not calling people names and all.
If you're in the mood for a debate -- debate them -- if not tell them you're not interested in having a debate and leave.
dont speak to him at all.. what a self opinionated infuriating pratt
Refuse to participate. I know someone like this too. We disagree on a lot of issues and they just want to argue about them. I used to interact and try to dialogue until I realized I was wasting my breath.
Say.. "Im sorry you feel that way" and then smile and walk away!
say with a straight face "you know, the more stressed out a person is, the younger they die. Why don't you go and meditate for a while?"
I see you've met my boss. My advice is to avoid them at all costs whenever possible, and fly under the radar.
