I wrote this book, "Why Are We Yelling? The Art of Productive Disagreement", published by Penguin Random House in 2019. I believe everyone can benefit from thinking about disagreements as tools for connection, insight, and enjoyment, and this book outlines 8 tips for practicing that.
The first "experiment" I ran around productive disagreement where I asked people to identify the arguments that they have with their partners that just keep coming up again and again over years. The one I picked for this was about the question, "Would you drink a glass of water that had been out for 3 days?" Very interesting results!
