What do you do or feel when someone disagrees with your opinion?

Do you get angry and conclude that they are somehow biased and maybe uninformed and try to explain your point some more? Or, would you thank them for expressing their opinion albeit a divergent one from your thesis. Happy Mylotting!!

Opinions differ and I don't go for opinions if I am going to start some thing and I won't give any opinion if I am not asked for.Even if there is a situation,somebody agreeing with or against my opinion,they may have some strong reasons behind and I won't convince them anymore.Cheers!

I always dot not expect others accept my opinion on one thing.All that I need is to drive my opinion clear into their heads.If they accept it fine other no problem.I know what I am speaking about and never needed the consent of everyone.It is impossible too.

It is good to give one's opinion without forcing it down the throats of others. I appreciate passion but I steer clear of fanaticism. Cheers!!

Eve I do that.I always know that you always lose a friend by winning an argument. I just steer away from the ones who are adamant.

the first time, yes, i keep quiet letting them speak, but if they insist on whatever they say, i do get angry and just walk away from that place, if they still follow me adn keep speaking their mind to me, i get wild and shout at them

Walking away is a wise move. Shouting at them when they persist might also be a wise move. Cheers!!!

Hello underdogtoo! I have encountered that kind of person here and I always respect their opinion. I know some of their opinion is true so I am not angry nor hate the person. But the problem is that there are some people who can't understand here even if I told her that I respect her opinion and now, I have a feeling that she's stalking me that's why my rating now went down eventually from 96 to 86

There are lots of people who feel that their opinions are the best there is and that is sad. Cheers!!

I think this would be a VERY BORING world if we ALL agreed on everything. I'm entitled to my opinion just like you are entitled to yours. Occasionally I start a discussion that I know won't be well received. I just want to hear everybody's opinion. I occasionally receive a new way of looking at the subject. My opinion is just MY way of looking at something. It doesn't mean there isn't another way to look at it!!! I definitely don't start a discussion just to hear everyone agree with me!!! Sharing our opinion is how people learn....one of the things I LOVE about myLot!!!
