At one point or another, we are each tempted to take up, the downside of an argument. The temptation to play devil’s advocate is yielded to with such regularity that more often than not such encumbrances serve only to discourage rather than uplift. Reflexive skepticism often bludgeons another’s confidence. Incessant dissection and paralysis of analysis can stall horse sense.
