    This thread is a piggy-back of Philodoxically inclined?, because I don't want to derail that thread.

    In that thread, you select how argumentative and dogmatic you perceive yourself. I thought it might be a fun exercise (and @Meow Mix apparently did as well) to find out how argumentative and dogmatic others perceive you and compare notes with how you perceive yourself.

    Anyone so inclined may reply and find out how others perceive you in this respect.

    Now do me! :D

    60% - argumentative yes, you can argue for three days about pie in religion. Dogmatic, no.

    I was way off. I guess I'm quite a bit more argumentative than I thought.

    @SalixIncendium I don't see you as opinionated/argumentative but you do have knowledge that i respect (ok, creeping to staff over) and agree with. Mostly less than 50%... But... always a but... When you have a point that is opposed you can get pretty 80%

    How's about dear old sweet me... Any body!

    Respect, you say? Where's my respect when you ask me such questions and refuse to support them with evidence? Huh?

    Okay, it depends on context, setting, and subject. When it comes to subjects I'm especially passionate about, such as feminism and LGBT rights, I'm much more inclined to argue but still stick to evidence than I would with a topic I view as largely morally inconsequential, such as whether aliens exist. I'm also not likely at all to argue over a family dinner (including for safety reasons), but I freely do it on the forum. That's where setting and context come in.

    And then, of course, there's also the whole question of argument versus debate or discussion: I often prefer the latter unless I believe calling out or condemning a certain opinion is more useful or necessary than discussing it. An example of this would be openly racist or sexist views espoused by someone I viewed as intentionally and actively malicious rather than merely misinformed or indoctrinated.

    I'd rate myself around 60% because, while I have a lot of strongly held beliefs, I strive to always remain open to evidence and logic. I'm situationally argumentative but not dogmatic, or at least I try not to be.

    I'd rate you at around 65% or so from what I've seen of your posts here. You can be quite passionate in disagreement, but I've never thought of you as someone who ignores evidence or sound logic to maintain his beliefs.

    @SalixIncendium - 60% I feel I agree with the consensus here. :)

    @KAT-KAT - 30% I don't really see you arguing too much, as I see you often times explore people's thoughts on things without too much judgement.

    @crossfire - 60% Similar to Salixincendium, you have your convictions and you stick by em, it seems to me.

    @ChristineM - 80% I definitely put you higher on the scale. You tend to not be too shy about voicing your opinions on things.

    @Viker - 90% You know. :D

    @Debater Slayer 80% - Same as ChristineM. Your one of the most reasonable folks on here, IMO, and your convictions are strong!

    You're a 10. That's not a bad rating. You could step up and swing the bat a little more, though.

    @Debater Slayer - 90%. I feel you have very strong convictions, and sometimes wonder if it has to do with culture, but just more as a side-thought. Don't feel bad as there are a lot of people who score lower, and it may be good to have someone of strong convictions, as part of the whole Yin/Yang idea.

    @ChristineM - 50%. I've seen you argue, but a lot of the subjects, not all, I see you as getting bored with the subject before it resorts to debate.
