I always wanted to battle Undefeatable in something, though I wanted something more casual without any potential consequences, and also able to easily give feedback. I chose a fun topic that we disagreed on and I hope you guys will enjoy.
Resolved: Gugigor's Debate Style is preferable in a Job Interview Compared to Undefeatable's Debate Style
With job interviews coming up, I was curious whether my casual style or Und's serious formal style was better in this situation. They both have advantages and disadvantages, and I feel like it's interesting to see if Und's style is too serious or stilted for usual job interviews.
We Ought to Prefer a More Casual Style
It's easily seen from my "I Can I BB" style debates that my style is far more casual: very few sources, employing mostly common sense, occasionally injecting humor, so on and so forth. In addition, my talking resembles my writing style very closely most of the time, so that I can easily translate my writing into speaking. By contrast, Undefeatable's Debate style is much more dry and tackles a more essay type approach, which can be off-putting in a job interview. As Job interviews wish to learn about your true self, I argue that we should prefer my debating style in these interviews.
As a testimony from Glassview, Mr. Geofron notices that the casual conversation type of debate can be far more productive and preferable in the long run. He highlights studies that show traditional interview to be ineffective, and prefers to have a two way conversation. My "true persona" shining through would work out much better as Undefeatable would no doubt be forced to keep up a tiring facade. Not only so, gaining information on real life "improvisation situations" allows quick on-the-foot feeling that Undefeatable would have great trouble with.
Business2community also agrees with the same idea. The free flow of conversation allows a more in-depth examination of the person's backstory and ideas, thus reaching further than what's on their resume. Due to Undefeatable's heavy dependence on experts, it's hard to say for sure that his explanations would be fully comprehensive or explain who he truly is.
Jobs and job interviews should not be overly formal or stressful. Being a bit funny, or awkward, is only human. Being "Undefeatable" is simply unrealistic in the long term, and the formal style of writing does not apply well to the interaction with coworker or with your boss. Clearly, my style is superior to Undefeatable when it comes down to Job interviews.
