Sunday Poser # 128- Arguments

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Do you like to win arguments or do you concede a point to keep peace?

I think most people want to be ( proved ) right! It’s a human instinct. But some have this trait very marked in their personality and would go to any lengths to win an argument.

While I do stand by my opinions, I don’t think that everyone should think the way I think or that I should try to convert them to my way of thinking.

So unless, the said argument concerns me personally, I concede the point and move on to maintain peace. No win is worth spoiling the peace at home, among friends or at work place.

Coincidentally, Maggie has asked a similar set of questions in her Tranquil Thursday post. I’ll answer her questions in a separate post.

How important it is for you to be right, and win the argument or it’s easy to accept the point of view of the other person?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. Very wise point Sadje, to concede and move on unless the matter is personal. Sometimes arguments (lack of communication) stem not from facts but from one’s desire to be proved “right.” A great question. Thank you.

  2. I like to keep my points in an argument. The other person might bring his own point too but if it’s something that I know and very sure of is wrongly judged, we clash. No time for peace campaign 😅

  3. I guess the importance of winning or losing an argument depends on the final outcome, and its perceived impact on your life.

    I learnt from experience that it is more important to lead the kind of life one wants than scoring points over differing perspectives.

  4. I like to be right, especially when I know that I am, but I hate having arguments. If I’m wrong though, I’ll admit it. Honestly, I think I see so many people these days not admit to being wrong. Like somehow being wrong is the end of the world. Seeing that so much, on places like Twitter etc. It is such a waste of time to know you’re wrong and never do anything to fix it.

  5. Hmmm I usually stay quiet. It’s because I don’t want to get caught in my emotions. Then I talk to the other person once we’ve both calmed down. There have been times though wherein I quickly lose my temper and try to win the argument. Not my best moments

  6. I have had people in my life who live to debate things…and I cannot stand that constant arguing. I enjoy a good discussion when we can both share our views and agree to disagree….but with those who feel the need to be right ALL the time I know I’m never going to get them to see it another way no matter what, so I am quiet.
