As much as I know instinctively that I'm lousy at winning idealogical fights, I can't help myself. It's a sickness. I have to join the the battle even though I know that I'm going to get my ass kicked. I don't have the patience to stick them out. Most idealogical fights come down to endurance - who can say "you're wrong" enough times until the other person throws up their hands and skulks away. I tend to lose my patience. BUT - I'm very good at pissing people off. I poke holes in arguments like nobody's bidness. I listen closely and process quickly. The main problem for me is getting my point out of my mouth. Listening closely makes me choose my words carefully and that takes time. In the fight paradigm, I've got a killer punch, but I'm slow as a dog.

But - every bruise is a lesson.
