Why do you have fear
I dont know. Maybe its because I had horrible childhood, but I think I already blamed enough problems on my bad childhood. Still, my adult fears probably come from me being afraid a lot as a child.


and why doesn't it keep you from going into debating a topic with yours truly?
I tend to work through fear.

"I dont know. Maybe its because I had horrible childhood, but I think I already blamed enough problems on my bad childhood. Still, my adult fears probably come from me being afraid a lot as a child."

So something in your childhood gives you a fear of debating in general or when debating me. Is that so?

I'm specifically asking about the fear of debating an individual and what's the cause of it.

What is the link of your fear from whatever it is to debating?

"I tend to work through fear"

In terms of debating, you work through the fear of debating how?

Does the fear diminish and the confidence increase?

With every statement or point you make, does your comfort level increase?

If you indeed are debating in fear , that is something stronger than those that have avoided debate in plain fear that hinders them. In plain fear or a lack of confidence. Maybe that's a better suited way of describing a change in behavior from a number of individuals that appeared to demonstrate themselves self sufficient to accept debate challenges to totally dissipating.

So something in your childhood gives you a fear of debating in general or when debating me. Is that so?
I have a fear of debating in general. As a child, I was mostly hit when I said the wrong thing, so yes it does kinda stick to a person after all those years.

I'm specifically asking about the fear of debating an individual and what's the cause of it.
How would I know? I am not a scientist.

What is the link of your fear from whatever it is to debating?
Well, I guess its like when you have something for so long, even after its gone you still feel its presence somehow.

In terms of debating, you work through the fear of debating how?
I just accept the debate without thinking about whats to come.

Does the fear diminish and the confidence increase?
Oh no, the confidence is always at zero, but fear does kinda wear off.

With every statement or point you make, does your comfort level increase?
No. My comfort mostly decreases, as I am being proven wrong about something that I dont even care about but somehow still come to defend.

If you indeed are debating in fear , that is something stronger than those that have avoided debate in plain fear that hinders them.
Well, I often avoid debates too. Sometimes I debate without actually debating.

In plain fear or a lack of confidence. Maybe that's a better suited way of describing a change in behavior from a number of individuals that appeared to demonstrate themselves self sufficient to accept debate challenges to totally dissipating
Oh well.

"How would I know? I am not a scientist."

You do know by it being your own fear and through introspection.

"I just accept the debate without thinking about whats to come."

Yes that's how fear is casted out. You can fear dreading what's to come or not fear what you've given no thought to.

"but fear does kinda wear off."

Very good .

"No. My comfort mostly decreases, as I am being proven wrong about something"

To be expected. You're not the only one. This is what prevents those whom once were confident and comfortable to go into a debate find themselves avoiding to face an individual again .

"Well, I often avoid debates"

Which ones?

"Oh well."

My sentiments exactly.

Well, I dont know. I really dont know. It may be my fear, but I dont know.

Exactly.

True.

"Well, I often avoid debates"
Which ones?
Well, mostly debates that require lots of thinking. I hate thinking.

Basically you and I have demonstrated my case of fear preventing one to debate because you work through yours you're able to come back and back instead of run as do others. 

Others here on this site were confident and fearless before. Now there's a huge polarity in facing me now in which before no matter the topic was accepted.

I will put one of them on blast just by having the audacity to communicate with me as if I have no equal right like every other individual here .

This individual sent me the following message.

11/16/2023, 5:23:41 PM
"English is either your second language or you have reading/comprehension skills that are below what is worth my time in a debate. I would have to spend more time correcting your misunderstandings than making my argument. But it's OK, I think if I block you that should take care of thr problem. Peace be."

Now this individual is running from debating with me apparently they got in their feelings and became frustrated. The fear of trying to explain something to someone could not be overcome. Instead of worrying about that, the person dictates to accept and avoid select topics.

Using time to explain your arguments to make a point is all a part of debating. I explain things often to people including to this individual to prove my point. The individual acts as though they're the only one that has to do explanations. Very naive behavior. It is this behavior that breeds the worry and or fear to cause folks to run the other way.

I want to say to this individual and others, learn and take note of the individual I'm interacting with in this topic of "THE FEAR of YOU knowing who YOU are fear to debate an individual."

They don't allow the fear to hold them back or it IDK not strong enough to cause them to avoid debating an individual. They make their case , whatever it is, that is what the work of a debater is , they argue.
Many don't want to debate because of the nature of arguing, drilling points, repetitiously, exhausting arguments, explaining, explaining, explaining, illustrating, drawing analogies, outlining thought experiments, once again explaining and again arguing.

When you argue, it doesn't mean an all around easy leisure chit chat. It is a back and forth blood shed so to speak grueling battle that takes effort and work to do. Not having the patience, spirit, passion or fight, stay out of the ring. It's not for you.

Arguing is fighting. It takes energy against resistance of disagreement which will include differences in understandings. I say again which WILL INCLUDE DIFFERENCES IN UNDERSTANDINGS. 

That's it for the lesson boys and girls.

Class dismissed.
