Have you ever spent the day with somebody who contradicts everything you say? People who constantly contradict others can drive you to the point of insanity.
Apparently, there is an official term called “oppositional confrontation style,” where the person basically disagrees with everything you say. If you mention that it is a sunny day outside, they will point out that they actually see clouds on the horizon. If you mention that someone did an amazing thing they will negate your point and claim the opposite is true and the person did a rubbish job.
Just for fun, watch their pattern and see how many times they say the opposite of everything point you make in an hour. Acting a contradictive asshole certainly won’t win a person a lot of friends.
If someone keeps winding you up and pushing your buttons with their contradictions, use one of our clever comebacks below, and give them a taste of their own medicine.
