After sorting out the data we have collected from filled questionnaires, we discover surprising results.
We have found some information that concedes with our hypothesis. Arguments end much more commonly with Reconcilation than Early Reconcilation. Also, resentment from Reconcilations are generally short-lived.
We are also correct in our deducing that arguments which do not end with a Reconcilation end more often with an apoogy than a mutual agreement to forget the past. Also, a great majority (almost 7/8) of the questionnaire-fillers agree that they doubt whether they have been fully forgiven after the mutual agreement, which is what we have predicted.
So far, our results have proved our hypothesis to be mostly true. But there is one thing that differs greatly from our predictions. A great majority of the interviewed people (more than 75%) have said that yes, they have lost a friend due to an argument. This number is a great surprise to us, as we have estimated this to be a rare occurance.
There is further proof to arguments being more dangerous than we take it. 4 people admit to having held grudges to more than a year, and three-fourths of the interviewed people agree to feeling resentment and anger towards the opposite party after an argument ending with Recocilation.
The verdict? While arguments are not exactly deadly, they are not to be underestimated. They can be a great hindrance to the development of a friendship, and you can even lose your friend. So honestly, to employ a cliche, there is nothing worth arguing about.
