I wasn’t pointing fingers at you, but 1/6 indicates to me that something is amiss.
I would think that six respondents hardly a consensus makes. Keep in mind that there are 1700+ registered members here, so out of the few dozen regular posters, only a handful might elect to explore the Philosophy subforum during any given week, if ever, and only some of those will find this particular topic compelling enough to join in on.
Considering all that, there’s no sound basis for concluding that you’re The Lone Confronter on the forum, or that those who think they would tend to avoid confrontation would actually do so, when put to the test.
This is still “related to whether one is more prone to be confrontational or not,” but I think the point Sam and I are trying to make is that confrontation is the more moral choice, whenever possible.
Seems to me that those last words—whenever possible—are what it ultimately comes down to. You might only have a matter of seconds to choose your course of action, while juggling tremendous stresses. . . so the potential variables to be sorted through in that moment are not insignificant, and almost impossible to predict with certainty.
