In almost any subject we know people that will argue their point to the death, and based on particular topics I think that we are all guilty of it from time to time.
But then there are those people who will go out of their way to transform any subject into a debate on the topic that they feel most passionately about. These people are extraordinary difficult do interact with and will often hamper if not destroy the conversation as they continue to derail the conversation with their continuous arguing. They tend to jump into conversations that have a primary topic that is no way related to their principle opinion or theory, however they will find ‘trigger words’ that they will use as a battering ram to break down the door and manipulate the conversation into a full blown argument.
I think that we all know a person or people like this. How would you suggest dealing with these people in the least confrontational way possible?
