On disagreeing

Disagree all you want. Lead as much as you feel equipped to. Prove your point even if you have to go down fighting. Question, because it is necessary. Investigate, because that should come instinctively. Stand up for your convictions. Make a big deal, if the situation calls for it.

But do you have to be so obnoxious while doing it? Is there really no better way to be heard? I find that hard to believe.

Sometimes, also listen.

Totally true. By being obnoxious negates all the merit in argument.

And 'listening' is a skill and so not commonly found.

(I could not risk to disagree here :P)

I have listened and I agree! :)

I think the quietness usually brings a revelation. Two important things happen when you keep quite. First you get enough time to think and know about the situation you are into and second, you are better able to decide what to respond and what not to which prevents you to picking fights very often.

It might not work out always,but I prefer not to make a big deal out of any thing.
And you dont be so depressed,things will get resolved hopefully.

aarti,
nothing wrong exactly, dear. i just had to get the day's unpleasant interactions off my chest before i went to bed, and therefore the post. some people just piss me off, and i've no choice right now but to deal with them. but i don't want to give them so much importance that i write a whole long post about it. hence y'all got to see the crux. :)

thanks for being so concerned... :)

sharda,
true what you say. not everyone believes in it, tho. yeah, i am trying not to let it get me down. some people are just wired that way unfortunately.

Totally agree! Being obnoxious strikes a few points off the strength of one's argument.

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

yes it does. and takes attention away from the issue. don't understand why people do it? sense of power may be?
