    Disagreement is a part of life. It can be heated and very agressive in real life, but when it is in a forum it is less agressive. When the environment is less stressful, people are receptive of information.

    As a person what do you think about disagreement? Do you think yourself as the type of person that believe disagreement can lead to debates that are beneficial for self growth or you completely hate it? Do you think disagreement will teach you anything new?

    When the appropriate style of communication is used debate or disagreement is a great source of knowledge.

    The OP is only pertaining to the disagreement that you have had in this forum or any forum online.

    Let see how many people would like to "think."

    ~Accept the challenge or be challenge~

    Don't you think you are "close minded" to present your information with such manner?

    No, I think that quote of yours from another thread, is at odds with what you are saying in this thread. That's the point of expressing an opinion, letting someone else hear ("pushing") our views. Otherwise, we wouldn't say anything.

    The information was presented in a forceful manner in the other thread. My approach is more therapeutic. The purpose was to see reasonings and clarification of thoughts. I did not start this thread out with a one direction, did I not?

    So if it can only be your "therapeutic" approach and not a forceful approach of presenting information in a debate? Don't you think that is being kind of "close minded"?

    Ok if you look closely my OP usually contains questions. I did not or tell other people that I am right. A critical thinker requires information from both sides. Critical thinking can be a subjective process but it requires you to examine information from both side of the topic rather than just blatantly state out that one view is correct. Critical think is an on going process.

    A therapeutic response focuses on the objective and it has room for ideas rather than stating that only one thing is right.

    This is dangerous.

    Debating the merits of disagreement may cause all of the RJ servers to crash.

    Oh don't worry about it. We've all been fighting with each other for years, From time to time some noob condescends to explain to us why we're terrible. We listen more or less politely, he eventually gets bored and goes away, and we carry on. I've been here five years.


    Haha I get that, I meant that a debate about disagreement is essentially a debate about the merits of debating. More of a paradox-type thing. icon_biggrin.gif

    Debates are healthy so long as both sides are firm believers in Truth. Argument for the sake of argument is not a good argument.

    Some people are just stupid and close minded and don't even bother listening to the other side. Whether that be here in the forums or in real life.

    Keen minds are the one with questions. Age is not a factor once you are able to comprehend and are wlling to explore information. The more you learn the more you know. That is one of reason we have a forum. icon_cool.gif

    At least you provide with a respectful response. It is sad to see some people in here with no self respect and decide to refer back to name calling to provoke a response. That type of behavior is very childish, especially I did show any ill-manner. I am sure we are old enough to not using that type of language to make our point.

    The OP is about what you think, it is not about gaining up on someone when they have a respectful way of thinking or providing information.

    The first step to reduce disturbance in your thought is to take a deep breath.
