No. Not really. I get annoyed if I have no one to bounce my wit off of, but I'm not the type to seek debate. Often I'll even avoid them or end them sooner than neccessary. It's just not my preferred way of interacting with people.
No, I don't seek arguments at all, but I love discussing a topic with someone who has a different pov as long as we're discussing not just telling each other how they're wrong.
I am seen as argumentative by others though, I just love opinions that I havenít thought of and what to know why and how people see things differently, this means I'll push them to explain what they believe with more clarity and point out flaws when I see them.
I don't want to be seen as argumentative though so I will change my style depending on who Iím talking to.
I love to argue because while i am right a lot i've never had an arguement where i've been completely right which makes it so fascinating because i always learn. Also some peoples reactions to my more logical arguments are hilarious. They range from awe to disgusted!
"I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"
"Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"
"Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
Yes! would be an understatement. It's the best way for me to motivate myself to learn something: Debate it.
This is the main reasons I seek forums out. It's mainly to provide a medium for exchanging ideas/debating without all that personal attachment that comes out of real-life relationships. Making friends is a great fringe benefit of forums, but, it is never my primary motivation, and, I would challenge even a friend in the quest/hunger for a debate. I rather play for knowledge/dialogue than play to make nice. Forums allows for that with greater ease.
I love argument. I tend to get very restless and/or frustrated if no one will compete with me. What's worse is that my main circle of friends within uni find argument practically toxic. They're philosophers for god's sake!
I'm trying to think of a neat little metaphor to describe how I feel when people don't argue with me, but I don't think anything describes it as well as the actual feeling itself. I know for sure that I am like a poisonous gas to my coursemates though.
