What makes people enjoy arguing 24/7 mostly about nonsense?

What makes people enjoy arguing 24/7 mostly about nonsense?

I prefer to be happy. How about you?
I think those of us who only debate about important matters live longer.
Happy Tuesday folks.

I suppose the reason varies a bit by individual, but it reminds me of the child that asks "Why?" after every question answered.
I think we have to remember that those children grow up and become adults.

I mean the kids that do it to be annoying, not because they're seriously trying to learn.
Like when their question is answered and they say... Why?.... So, that why is answered, and then they say.. Why? That answer is followed by another Why?... and so on until they get the answerer to finally say.... OK... That's enough.... and then they follow that with a Why?
The answerer says... Because I said so..... That's followed by another Why?

It's a form of manipulation.

It's the same with these habitual arguers. They're delighted when they get you to respond, especially if it's in anger.

I'm pretty much of a disappointment for those folks because I won't play.
Once you realize you're dealing with that personality type, it's best to let them play alone. Playing along is like repeatedly punching yourself in the face, and they love it because they know they're causing that to happen.
A knowing smile and walking away is a last word that can't be topped.
Just don't do that when the other person is sincere, and or, because you don't have a worthwhile response for an honest assertion.

Honestly Karven I must admit I constantly ask why and did so as a child. The subjects that were explained well are the ones I grew to love and did well in. I can't learn without understanding why.
I dislike arguing and only will when necessary.
