How do you avoid repeated arguments with a person even when there’s nothing to argue about? Sometimes you realize far too late that you actually agree and that you’re just miscommunicating.
Our prompt comes from Thom Root (@invisime) on Twitter:
Thom: A coworker and I can’t stop violently agreeing with each other.
AC: Is this an “argue for an hour, then aggressively realize you don’t disagree” situation?
Thom: Pretty much. Often over coding minutiae. There may be a lack of mutual respect or too much ego or something like that.
