In every walks of our life, we oftenly interact with people. A classic example of this is, when you tried to share your principles in life, but people rejects the idea. You feel you are not belong to the group, right? Even if you try to elaborate further about your point, but still they refused to listen. Eventually, you are going to get tired and just passively accept the indifference between you and the other individuals. To make a long story short, we are human beings with indifference from other people. Would you say, "I couldn't agree with you more." «

Yes, I think we all have been in this type of situation. I know I have and sometimes it;s simple how you were raised, environment, or even age group. I know I can't relate to the 19 year old that I work with as she doesnt pay any bills, and spends money lft and right whereas when I was her age, I was supporting myself, in college.

and sometimes, even people from the same environment will grow up differently because they also have different personalities.

I am different from other people and why not? I always been different. I don't like to be just an other sheep of the cattle. I don't care if I have lots of friends or not. I like to be with me, I am way more creative, I have always plans and things to do. I will never understand why people are gossiping or invest their time/energy in breaking other people. I am not social. My kids are like me, so according to us the outside world is weird/abnormal. At least we don't need a shrink because we feel so lonesome, are not able to enjoy ourselves or keep ourselves busy. We are never bored, have plenty of interests and self esteem. What more does one need?

I am indifferent to that idea.. haha! not really! and actually, yes I couldn't agree with you more! My favorite people to spend time with are those who share my views, or at least those who enjoy discussing the deeper topics of religion, spirituality and even politics.

There are times that I am guilty of being indifferent to other people. However, this is not something that I can say that I am always guilty of. I would say that the reason that I am indifferent to other people around me is because of the fact that I don't really know a person. I am not typically the kind of person that will make a snap judgement of another person that I encounter. I actually have to have the opportunity to get to know someone before I am no longer indifferent about them.

Disagreement is very common. We need to learn that we can't convince everybody to agree with our opinion. If we have our own opinion, they too have they're own. Even spouses have disagreements, not to forget the siblings too.

Not everyone in this life is going to agree with you. Thats just the way it is. If we all thought alike we would just be a society of andriods. Robots. I like the fact that people think different and that they have different values. Maybe we can learn something from other people and visa versa.

yes, every person have their won ideas and strategy about everything, we cant say our idea is right or perfect, but some people just behave very rude ,if anyone tries to tell /explain them about their thoughts , and vice versa, which is not good. I felt many a times that i am very different from others , but never thought that others are wrong or i am the only who is having a good idea or point.

We can't please everybody, each one of us has its own views and ideas. You must not feel down wherever people rejected your opinion or in whatever aspects but take everything positively. Maybe they are just different and you are different, that's what we call individuality. What you are thinking about them might wrong or what they are thinking towards you is wrong. I can make my self as an example of that people you are talking about, i can say that i am also belong to differentiability. I often oppose or disagree on others opinion because for my i have my own right, my own thought, no matter it is right or wrong, if that's what i stand for, i will fight for it. I will just say...it is me and that is you, we are not the same, pour mind and thinking is not the same... Respect me and i will give back the respect to you. So don't feel lonely or sad... maybe you will relate yourself in my statement and these might happen to you one day... I wish for your peace of mind...have a nice day.

I don't hate people who disagree with me . It actually makes an discussion becomes more interesting since we have another point of views which means we could share another information and thought. But I do dislike when people don't respect my opinions or points of views and tell me I am crazy or stupid / dumbness for my position of something . Disagreeing is different than disrespecting, you can disagree with someone's oponion but still respect them of their indifferent .

Indifference is actually lack of concerne,interest ,sympathy.and i donot think i'll be sharing my ideas or values with any person who is indifferent to me.ya i agree that in walks of life we do encounter many people who is indifferent to us,and thats so normal.

hey everyone has diffrences, thats what life is all about, you can't find your mirror image any where, you have to live with these diffrences, but try to let go things talk more with people, bridge out the distances and once you accomplish doing it you will feel not being indifferent.

I can definitely participate in this discussion you have presented. Indifference. There is a way to look at this culturally as well as individually. I live in the United States of America where indifference is promoted as an attitude to take with respect to humanity. As one goes deeper and develops relations with people, there are some people we can relate to better than others. Is it because opposites attract or birds of a feather flock together? This answer can be explained by the individual with whom has the answer to how he or she gets involved with a person. I feel indifferent from other human beings.

Hi there, It is very common in our life. In my opinion, people do not want to be persuaded and follows other's ideas, they have their viewpoints and think their viewpoints is correct in instinct. So it is not easy for most people to accept the ideas from others, especially the ideas are not correct by glance or hard to understand. But people begin to learn that we accept other ideas, if they are right after long time education and social experience. In the other way, those people having good ideas should find good way to share your ideas, such as taking good situation, or the time when the listener had good mood or when the listerner was in trouble. Than you can share your ideas with the listener, and the success rate will be increased. Cheers

I just felt that way in my current job. This is where I experience people asking your opinion about something just to start a debate. But at the end of the day, when you have given your best to stand to what you think is right, they would insist that you are wrong. Well, I try my best to deal with this kind of persons for like once or twice but if they still show the same attitude towards me, I usually keep my distance to them and would avoid further communication. I really do not mind to be different from them, or to change myself or my views in life just for other people to accept me. I do not want to lose my own identity just to be accepted by those kind of people. Well at least me I always try my best to understand that people can have different opinions and attitude towards something. I still respect them and don't criticize them for having different views.

well, you are right we are human beings with indifference from other people however when we suggest any idea if that idea is rejected then we should not be sad or feel that we don't belong to the group. Just think positive and suggest another idea if we have....or just give comments to the others' ideas.

I oftentimes experience this things shavkat especially with my group. There are times that I think of myself less because of certain actions they had towards me. They would not accept my idea or sometimes they will totally revise what I previously made without consulting me and it really hurts. But I was able to manage myself to just go through with the situation. Now I am nearly done and what is important to me is to finish everything that is required of me. I don’t want to think anymore about my opinion not heard or my idea not accepted. I just thought of it as part of life. I’ve learned to accept things as it is. This is much easier for me.

We will only find indifference when we try to force our ideas and opinions on a group.Let us try to incorporate the best views and ideas of all and then you will see the indifference changing into cooperation and tolerance.However good our views and ideas may be,it will never find acceptance,unless we take account of others views and ideas.So let us be receptive to others ideas, to gain acceptance of our views.Being indifferent will only make us lonely and miserable,the world is made of people with opposite views and thoughts,and to succeed in this world is to have tolerance of others views and also ability to forgiven others folly.Keep in mind, in an imperfect world let us use tolerance and harmony to get along with our other group members.
