Agreement is good. It’s reassuring. It’s harmonious; it feels good.
Disagreement, on the other hand, can be irritating, annoying, unsettling, and can be upsetting.
However, rational disagreement can lead to deeper understanding and result in objectivity.
Disagreement done correctly can lead to more effective ideas and solutions.
To paraphrase General George S. Patton: If everyone is agreeing, some are not thinking.
