Abstract

The Republic of Cameroon has experienced armed uprisings beginning in 2016. In these dangerous times, we collected data bearing on how people felt about interpersonal arguing. Are they willing to argue? Is disagreement rare because it might be dangerous? Is arguing seen as a potentially constructive activity, or one carrying risks rarely experienced in quieter Western nations? This is the first data collection from the continent of Africa concerning issues of orientation to interpersonal arguing.

How Do People Feel About Arguing in Cameroon?

Room 3

The Republic of Cameroon has experienced armed uprisings beginning in 2016. In these dangerous times, we collected data bearing on how people felt about interpersonal arguing. Are they willing to argue? Is disagreement rare because it might be dangerous? Is arguing seen as a potentially constructive activity, or one carrying risks rarely experienced in quieter Western nations? This is the first data collection from the continent of Africa concerning issues of orientation to interpersonal arguing.
