Some people think it is better to choose a friend who always has the same opinions as them. Other people believe it is good to have who sometimes disagree with them.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
It is believed by many that when people make friends, they must choose people who have the same viewpoint as of them, however, others disagree that it is better to have mates who sometimes disagree with their views. While people who have similar opinions are less likely to fight with each other, I believe that it is much worthy to make friends who occasionally disagree to show another way of looking at an event.
On the one hand, with similar thinking, there are negligible chances of having conflicts among people. This is because they have the same viewpoint about a topic whether it is a worldly event or personal work resulting in no chances of argument. To illustrate, a study by Cambridge University found that people who make friends of similar thinking are less likely to face any sort of understanding issues. However, I do not agree with this statement because of the reason elucidated below.
On the other hand, it is beneficial for people when their friends sometimes share an opposing viewpoint because this will help them to widen their horizon. Therefore, it is not feasible that one always has a right understanding of an issue, a disagreement by a friend can help people to view an event from a different perspective. For example, I have some friends who do not hesitate to oppose me if I have a wrong understanding of an event. Therefore, I agree with this school of thought because it would result in a better understanding of the world around us.
In conclusion, although having similar thinking of friends can result in a good friendship, I believe that occasional opposition makes our understanding much better.
