    Au contraire, sir.

    I don't enjoy arguing at all. I do enjoy a good discussion if things don't too emotional and both parties can at least be open to the other sides point of view.

    I only really argue to put 'filthy invalids' in their place.

    This. ENFJ man would say if arguing were an Olympic sport you'd do the USA proud but in truth it's more on the discussion level now. When I was younger it definitely was a hobby.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Arguing is the opposite of mindfulness. Arguing is for those who want distraction. Arguing is for those who want distraction from themselves and you. They want to be distracted from you. They don't like you but rather than saying so, they argue. Arguing is another way of saying, I don't like you, and indeed, I don't even like myself, will you join me in my self distaste?

    I don't like arguing. I do like thought provoking conversation.

    My INTJ friend and I used to play what we dubbed as "mental chess". The conversation could start anywhere, take any turn, there were no rules, no guidelines, and it was incredibly abstract. It was fun because there wasn't exactly a goal, or a solidly defined win, but the twists and turns would dictate those rules as the conversation progressed. Lots of fun.

    Chronic argumentation is usually a symptom of a lack of/inability to listen.

    Usually I only argue for the sake of clarity or to make a different perspective apparent. Sometimes there are other reasons.

    If I have a crap impression of an individual, I might go as far as to root out things to argue about; this isn't something I'm highly aware of in the moment. Rather, it's a trace motivation.

    Yes I know what that's like; my ENTP friend and I do it too. Very enjoyable.

    No.

    But lively, passionate debates are both educational and enjoyable.
