Debating Versus Argumentation
Most people find debate and discussion very interesting, but disagreement is a natural part of human society. It's never a good idea to argue with someone who disagrees with you. Rather, you need to agree with them and work together to achieve your goals.
Argumentation is one of the methods of persuading people. By engaging in discussion with someone you may be able to get them to see things your way. If they think differently to you then they may even open up and start to appreciate the virtues of your ideas.
In many cases arguments can get pretty heated and get out of hand. The person being discussed or the other party will usually try to defend their position or tactic and if they are unable to do so, the person on the receiving end of the argument will try to defend theirs. This makes for a very heated debate.
At some point the debate will become so heated that the person on the receiving end may stop listening because of the constant interruption.
