    One can disagree without being disagreeable about it. When you start to argue, scream and shout, then you are being disagreeable.

    No. One can simply disagree with a point and make no coment about it, and in that case you are not presenting an argument. people who agree can infact argue the whys and wherefores of the thing they agree on.

    Disagreeing is having a separate view, arguing is about forcing your view on others who don't share you viewpoint!

    You cant force your point of veiw on others, the best you can do is intmidate them into prtending they have yourpoin of veiw However if you can put forward a convicing argument as to why someone should adopt your point of veiw then there is no threat r forceinvolved.

    If your arguing a point, then your trying to convince them that, you are right or alternatively, they are wrong. So arguing, is in other words is consistent with forcing your viewpoint.

    I dont undertand where force enters into it. one can accept an argument or not.

    You don't need to beat some over the head to force them to do something.....the is such a thing as verbal abuse, verbal bullying....call it what you may!

    Abuse and bullying are not argument, they have more akin with threats. I was once many moons ago a member of a debating club, and debating is arguing a point One never gained points for bullying or abusing you opposition.

    People can easily disagree without arguing about it.

    No, but when you constantly repeat it over-n-over again. it can start an argument..

    I can disagree with someone and let them know it .. once. If you continue disagreeing and don't stop, then it becomes arguing.

    Disagreement can lead to arguing. But they are not the same thing.

    I say the sky is blue. You say its pink. We say no more about it. Or, we can stand there and argue our opinion to try and make the other person see it our way. There is a difference.

    And no. I can merely say 'I disagree' and I am not technically arguing with you. However, to disagree with information that counters your information is, by definition, an argument. This does not have to be seen in a negative light light. It is how we learn.

    No, IN my mind disagreeing is not the same as arguing. But, I have noticed to many people that if you don't agree with them they say you are creating an argument with them... That is either ignorance or control.... take you pick.

    Arguing would be biting at each other, using harsh words. I never do that (or I try not to). Disagreeing is the same as debating. Merely stating your opinion, the other person states theirs, and so on. I am a very good debater, because I am logical. I take things into perspective, look at it through the other person's eyes.

    You can disagree without arguing. Once the arguing and name calling begins walk away.

    It depends on how and why you disagree. Also, some people see everything as an argument. Also, it can be seen in a very different light if you're doing it with an elder, teacher or someone like that.

    Not at all. But it seems many people act as though you are arguing with them as soon as you disagree with them.
