    Confrontational vs Argumentative

    Does anybody know the difference between Confrontational and Argumentative?






    Confrontational is pulling your gun out of the holster.

    Argumentative is pulling the trigger.

    Read that in a book and thought it was clever.


    EDIT: This is just a joke...not a philosophy!!! That's why it was posted in the off topic HUMOR section.

    I would disagree with both of those... but, that's just me.

    Argumentative, is spoken.
    Confrontational can be physical.

    You're so right, I couldn't agree with you more.

    If you can discuss without arguing, you'll likely avoid confrontations.

    Reminds me of one I heard about the difference between being "involved" or truly "committed". It's like bacon and eggs...
    The chicken is 'involved', but the pig is 'committed'!

    What is the difference between a chicken and a pig?

    The chicken makes a contribution and the pig a commitment
