Why the discussion is different from argument when in both the scenarios the underlying basic phenomena is exchange of thoughts among group of individuals.
The main difference lies behind the temperament of the listening individuals. In a healthy positive discussion, listeners consists of group of individuals who are more open and receptive for empathizing with others ideas and thought process. Where as in case of argument , listeners are almost reluctant to empathize with others ideas .
This thought reflects how the behavior of individuals brings positivism and negativity in same situation. So with this keeping in mind, we should try to be a part of discussion instead of an argument :-):-)
