    Default Contrariness

    Which types are more likely to disagree just for the sake of disagreeing? If someone walked up to you, got in your face, and said "NO" without presenting a topic, would you say "okay, whatever" or "yes?"

    lol.

    I know a male and a female ESTp that like to argue for the sake of arguing so that is the type I would guess.

    I shrug, give a half smile, and wait for the fucking crazy person to walk away as I discreetly pull out my Mace.

    Lol. I like to randomly disagree with my SEI brother. He enjoys it too, for the . So he prefers irrelevant reasons as opposed to no reason.

    A: No!
    B: Yes!
    A: No!
    B: Uh-huu!
    A: Certainly not!
    B: Uh-huu!
    A: Under no circumstances.
    B: Uh-uuh!
    A: Uh-huu!
    B: No.
    A: Yes, and George Washongton agrees with me.

    Nah, pulling out a weapon is a free action, unless you've already got one equipped in which case it's a move-equivalent.

    depends on the context. If it's an SLE being playful, I'll definitely throw a "yes" back in his face. but under most circumstances, I'd probably give a weird look.

    If someone presents a facile opinion, or annoying viewpoint, I will immediately take a contrary stance, and push them to see how confident they really are in it.

    If someone is being rational and genuine in their presentation, I'll take it in and evaluate it neutrally, and respond accordingly.

    But sometimes it's just fun to see how people react to different things. You see where they really stand.

    This is pretty much exactly what I do.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    When someone says "Sorry" after bumping into me I sometimes say "I will never forgive you" just for the fun of it. Doubt anyone takes it seriously. When my boss tells me "You have to go there and do this" I sometimes say "No" with a blank face. Usually my boss explodes and then starts laughing. I love my boss.

    Oh and thats probably why most in the office call me cheeky.

    There's lots of responses. You could start with "You're cute". Or you can just be like: "Are you trying to learn to say No?"

    It's actually a lot of fun. I kind of get off on challenging people's opinions of things/playing devil's advocate. People should know why they believe what they believe; otherwise everything is just a baseless opinion.
