What kind of action did you take when you disagreed with the other person?
#miss

That's quite a tough question, especially to the Japanese people including me. Generally speaking, we hesitate to or hate to heatedly argue about something. Therefore, we often make ambiguous response and in some cases even agree with the other person's opinion despite our intention. I know it could cause trouble later though.

So, you would do anything to avoid confrontation? Don't you think that only means that the confrontation is postponed and not avoided completely?
#miss

Logically, it may be nothing less than the confrontation is postponed as you said. However, in everyday conversation how many times would you have something that you will have to get the best of an argument at any cost? Do you think whenever you think differently from others, you should have your own way?

Logically, as you said the confrontation will be just postponed. However, in everyday conversations how many times will you say something to get an argument at any cost? Do you think whenever you think differently from others, you should have your own way?

That's a great point and I think you are right. However, don't you think it is important to know how to choose your battles? Sometimes we should withdraw, but not always. Don't you agree?
#miss

Of course. You can say that again, and you shared a wonderful term like "choose one's battles" with me. This is a new expression to me. It's very important, indeed. Well, however, in some cases I hold my ground at all costs. Can you guess what kind of case I would do?

Yes, that's a very good term. It might be useful for you. Maybe in case when somebody accuses you of something illegal. I am not sure...
