Arguments are good if what turns out of it is positive. Most often that not, arguments end up violent, favoring no one because both of the contending parties believe that their process of reasoning is more favorable than the other. Arguments should be made to persuade but unfortunately, there are people who just loves to argue. In my article Types of People Who Love to Argue, I pointed out these three types of people who love to argue.
- The Reformist
- The Attention Seeker
- The Fighter

In relation to this, I am sharing these quotes:
“I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don’t even invite me.”
Or maybe people steer clear of him because he is one of those types I mentioned.
“Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.”
– William Blake
Mr. Blake can be the reformist type. In respect though, for people who airs their view contrary to popular beliefs or concepts, I believe it is not about the love for an argument for argument’s sake but the need to express a view that is believed to be more logical, or practical.
“No sensible man ever engages, unprepared, in a fencing match of words with a woman.”
-Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White
I find the above quote funny. Most women are born fighters, I believe. 😀
