why do people like to argue?

Rating: 3 votes, 1.33 average.
let's be honest here, out of all the traits I have ever exhibited in my time on this board, one of my most pronounced is my eagerness to argue with people. have always liked to argue, I remember arguing with my little brother all the time as a kid, and I continue to this day as an adult to argue with people. once got into a several hour drunken debate with my former roommate over whether or not 9/11 was carried out by our government(hint: it wasn't).

so why, why do I, or anyone else, like to argue?

I'll tell you why I like to argue at least, can't speak for anyone else you know. simply, its because I like to think. thinking is fun, and as much as I like to think for myself I absolutely love making other people think as well. when you are in an argument naturally you believe you are right, but a good argument also should make you question those beliefs. that's why I argue, I like to question my own beliefs and I like to try and make others question their beliefs. I get into an argument with you and counter your points and hopefully when you are typing out a rebuttal to me you are starting to question what you believe in and why, hell maybe even have a google tab or two open researching your beloved beliefs. I sure do that a lot, and I love doing it.

because that is how people learn, and learning new things is awesome. think about it.

    Or, at least, picking out things that are wrong with the other person's argument.

    I think you summed it up pretty well: " I like to question my own beliefs and I like to try and make others question their beliefs." If I get into an argument and find that my argument is faltering badly, then I know it needs refinement. A good argument will allow you to do that (improve your argument or alter your beliefs, if necessary). A bad argument will degenerate into mudslinging, and it's at that point that it ceases to be appealing for me.
