As that I am a pretty chill person, I don’t start arguments unless the controversial topic greatly affects the world. The last time was a few months ago. I want know how normal people argue, as well as all these questions:

What count as sources in a verbal debate, and how does its justification operate?

Why that logic rarely works on normal arguments with people?

Suppose you are a good debater on DART, then does that mean you will do better in verbal debating? Why or why not?

Can you win against one person of your family in an ordinary argument? Why or why not?

Why is that people often use Ad hominem as the dominant strategy in their arguments?

What is normal, what is ordinary and is there a distinction to be made between a discussion and an argument?

And ad-hominem is usually indicative of a shortage of relevant information, so at that point it's best to walk away with confidence.

I don't know the answers to your questions.
But you could probably find some users willing to get into verbal discussions/arguments online, with the express purpose of reviewing the debate afterward, perhaps by having a third party ask the two debaters 'separately their thoughts during certain parts of the debate, what their justifications were for why they responded with certain statements, or what emotions they might have felt.
Which could be accomplished by either audio recording the debate, or taking notes.

People in real life tend to avoid issues, so then they bottle it up...One day, they crack and it's all emotional, no facts. At least, that's w
