This cultural analysis explores interpersonal arguing (dis)similarities between the US and India. Indian arguing patterns are affected by age and gender, perceived as less civil discourse cross-culturally and Indians feel more personally bothered by arguing than Americans. Also their argumentativeness' approach and avoidance subscales and verbal aggressiveness subscales appear uncommonly positively linked.
