Let Me Ask You a Question – 11/30/18

When you find yourself in a serious argument with someone do you look to resolve the conflict or dig in and defend your position?

  1. Dig in and defend myself, unfortunately! Working on it…I’m usually able to come back to the situation and admit my wrongdoing or faults, but first thought is always defensive!

  2. If I can see a possibility of resolving it, I prefer to go for that. In part, it depends on what is at stake. If I see my position, particularly regarding a decision about a third party, as a moral or ethical imperative, I’ll dig in deep and hard.

  3. Ooohhh…this is a bad one! In theory, I know I should be kind and find a diplomatic solution. In practice, I’ll dig in a argue my case until I either 1) win – or 2) wear down my ‘opponent’ to the point they just give in.
    What about you, sir? What do you do?

      • I think I would have that attitude when I had to fight for my kids when they were younger. My son in particular needed a wolf mother . He is extremely bright and has a psychomotor disorder and had to do his school work on a computer exams as well. Heaven help the school if they did not make that easy for him! He went on to university to BA and an MSc and he had learned to fight for himself then. So in that case my example was a good one.

  4. On most things I’d rather resolve than fight. Even when I know I’m right I’ll try to work with the person so he doesn’t feel that I’m insinuating that he’s ignorant. But on certain things I’m a bulldog.
