Do you ever pose or defend actions you disagree with? Just to see how you are treated by those that in other comments you would consider allies?
No, I do try to see all sides but I don't misrepresent what I think about it in comments.
I almost always argue for points of view that I disagree with. I feel that it can both teach me about an alternate perspective, and increase my persuasion skills through practice. Especially since many of my friends share the same opinions as me, it would be boring without dissension.
No. I represent myself in a consistent manner.
No. I want to maintain my credibility.
No - that is ethically unsound.
Play devils advocate, without stating so upfront? No.
Not really, no. I have at times made full on Marxist arguments just to see how people would respond, but that isn't the opposite of what I believe, just taking it further than I usually would.
I don’t recall ever doing that.
