Everyone comes from different backgrounds and has their own set of beliefs, so it is natural to disagree with our peers at times. In order to have constructive conversations, we must have rational ways of explaining our ideas, and present open-mindedness towards hearing the opposing point of view. This is the way problems in society can come to a resolution or compromise.

Describe a disagreement you had with a coworker, classmate, friend, or relative that led to a passionate discussion. What stakes did you have in the discussion? Were you able to consider the other viewpoints? What was the outcome?
