In that case, I agree with you.
I learned a new term from you. Thank you.
Okay, but you aren't the type who thinks that you are always right, right?
I love to be proven wrong but sadly there are rarely proof provided to me.
Oh, sad. No one is able to give you what you wanted.
Oh, let me correct that, only few*** are able to do so.
While its enjoyable to have an actual conversation as well as learn something new in the process I am also blessed with feeling joy at talking with.. shall we say.. ideologically challenged people. People who cling to a belief, be they religious, political or otherwise in the face of all the facts in the world.
If I believe someone is ignorant I will let them know. Other words I have used have been: silly, argumentative, immature, trollish, and close minded.But back to your question. I enjoy a good discussion especially when the other person offers fresh facts, cultural understandings, and perceptions. I can’t imagine acting childish and just calling them dumb because they disagree with me. Many times here on GaG after a healthy discussion I will agree to disagree once I realize no compromise can occur. No, just trying to hurl the insult of ‘dumb’ towards someone else reminds me of the 1st grade and being on the playground.
That's a good insight.I might need to mature now coz I'm guilty of being childish in some other aspects. I'm also often called dumb by the people here.🤔
Thanks. Just keep in mind if someone calls you dumb it’s almost like they gave up and you ‘won’ if winning the discussion based on logic was your goal. It’s a way of them giving you power.
That's a good way to think about it. Thanks too!
