[dropcap style=”flat” size=”5″]T[/dropcap]he great benefit of opening yourself up to a contrarian look at something is not that you necessarily jump up shouting about having seen the light and converting to some previously unthinkable option.
No, in truth, a good contrarian look at something may help you articulate your own beliefs. It can provide a foil to your own views, contrast that helps you get more securely in touch with your own opinions.
And folks secure in their opinions tend to do less screaming at each other. About book reviews and carpet selection.
