I am unsure if it is just my personality or a widely experienced bad impression; I dislike arguments. I’m not too fond of it, for I feel it is mixed with various kinds of human emotion that make every party in an argument lose. I have learned an adage from the net: “A man convinced against his will agrees still.” It also reminds me that a defensive response is seldom a good way to handle complaints or quarrels. Someone says people argue for only two motives: the real one and the one that sounds noble. People in an argument may consider themselves holy crusaders defending the rights of others. But in reality, what they want is just a feeling of importance. When they get the feeling, their imagined righteousness vanishes into thin air. In a nutshell, the only way to win an argument is to avoid it. “Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam, so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. – Proverbs 17:14”
