Do you argue with everyone? Everyday? Everywhere?

"I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me." No, I dont argue anymore. I think there are many species of people in this world who have so many opinions.. each one having a opinion of their own.. I simply listen to their views from one ear and throw out the junk from other. I assess their advices myself and do what is best even if it means accepting their suggestion or ignoring them completely.

I think that I am a very opinionated person. Enough so to get myself into trouble sometimes. I argue with customers at work, I argue with my co-workers, my parents, my siblings, my friends, and other people that I don't even know.

A compulsive arguing person.. :) I think sometimes we are not aware of our own actions and find ourselves argueing with every person we meet.. But when we realize what we have done we feel bad about it and pity the person.

I don't think this is a problem. It's a sign of strength. I say this because I have the same strength. Speak what's on your mind. Those that don't understand it are weak. I don't argue with everyone, just those that try to tell me something I know isn't true.

That is the worse thing to do.. argueing with a liar. You know.. they say.. to hide a lie, a person has to speak another 100 lies. A liar will keep on argueing because he wouldnt want the embarassment of getting caught lying red-handed. It's better to tell them on their face they are lying.

I agree with you. Argueing with a stupid perso is stupidity. Such people should be ignored.

Yes a positive attitude is great. Infact it was that great attitude that i believed caused me to win so many arguments. Simply because I don't let anyone get under my skin I am able to think quickly and accurately. This way the competition has no chance. On the other hand arguing is immature so by all means please cut it down. So in conclusion, I say the best way to win an argument is not to argue at all. Let the other person get all worked up while you are focusing on the logical issues as opposed to the emotional ones.

Yes, right attitude does matter. But it is equally important to listen to the other person and discuss your views. In the end decision is your thats true but discussions should be done with an open mind.

Argueing is such a waste of time. I think there is a difference between argueing, discussing and debating. A healthy discussion is always welcome because it involves reasoning, logic and an interactive and worthwhile response from other person. Everyone involved put their views on the same table. Arguements are senseless talks.

No, I dont argue with people. I think its waste of time argueing with stupid people with stupid ideas. They are so stubborn not to listen to others or even for a second understand what they are saying.

True, I think having the right attitude is important. Arguments happen when both the parties are not willing to listen to each other. They just are putting their points across, and not discussing.

i think there's really no point in arguing for the sake of one's own opinion. it's much better if we only speak out what's on our mind but not to the point of arguing for others to accept our own point of views. arguing is unhealthy and only shows that the person is arrogant.

I hate arguing and see no point in it, I only argue when it's necessary and crucial to me but over views and ordinary things I always avoid useless long talks.. I would "discuss" any thing and tolerate differences, try to make my point or even accept the other side point of view as long as they are sensible and calm, if someone uses logic in their arguing, it's ok for me but for those stupid heard-headed people out their I either avoid them or just leave them to burn with their anger when I walk out on them. at many times i have to hide my views and say something like "whatever" , "I don't know" to avoid arguing.

No I don't argue, but I do clarify or I do give my view on the topic.
