Why are some people like this lmao

@skippy I have been guilty of this. I like to debate against things even if I openly agree with it. It's good to consciously challenge your own views, it helps you stay open to changing your opinion based on new information.

@robby soz for the late response, today was crazy. I agree with you that it is good to challenge your own views and it helps you grow as a person, and allows you to expose any flaws in your reasoning. What I am referring to in the post above if someone makes a statement, and people feel the need to contradict it for no apparent reason other than they just don't want to hold the same view, that is frustrating and pointless imo. Note I am not referring to playing "devils advocate".
