Is it Wrong to Want to be Right?

Why is it that sometimes all you want to do is have a little spat with someone? Why is it so important to get your point across and "win" said battle? While obviously I have no idea why it's so satisfying, it strangely does feel a wee bit empowering to have faced someone in a battle of the wits and walked away the (perceived) victor. Even if it's not true, it's certainly helpful to feel victorious, especially when it's a good fight that gets your heart racing and blood pumping. Those are the best kind! Granted, there are times (OK, maybe most of the time) when fighting isn't the greatest idea and doesn't help the situation at all, but this was NOT one of those times. I won! I'm victorious. That means I'm happy, right? Or am I just even more mad? Doesn't matter. Anger's good, too. At least it stops me from being sad.
