The most common confusion I see in discussions is around “contradiction” and “contrary.” A contradiction occurs when two things are incompatible. For example, an analogy of a car vs. a bus shows the contradiction of the bus being able to move faster than a car.
The real problem here is that the two things are actually contradictory. For example, a car can only move at a certain speed, but a bus can move faster or slower. The contradiction here is that a car and a bus share the same speed.
There is also a contradiction in the term ‘contrary,’ which is used quite a bit in the world of business and finance. Two things are contradictory if they are in opposite states. However, contrary doesn’t mean opposite. It is used to indicate that a person is in the same state or situation. For example, “I am in a very good mood.” is a contradiction. “I am in a very bad mood.” is a contrary.
In business and finance, it is commonly used to distinguish between two things that are not related. The two things are said to be in the same state or situation if they are at the same time. For example, I am in a very good mood. is in the same state or situation as I am in a bad mood. It’s true that the two things are in the same state or situation, but they are not the same. It’s also true that contrary is used quite a bit.
Yes, contrary is used quite a bit. In business and finance, people will often say that two things are in the same state or situation if they are opposite. For example, I am in a very good mood. is opposite of I am a very bad mood. They are not the same, but they are related. This usage is fairly common however, so it’s worth exploring it a little more.
While its true that contrary is used quite a bit, I find it much more common to use it in negative directions. For example, I am a very contrary person. is not an oxymoron.
It is most often used in positive directions. For example, I am a very bright person, which is contrary to my personality. I am also very honest, and is probably opposite of its negation.
The reason I say this is because according to the Oxford Dictionary, contrary is a negative word. Which it is not. The negation of contrary is similar to the negation of that same word. It is a synonym for “not.” In other words, contrary is a word that indicates a negative thought or idea. That doesn’t mean it’s wrong though. It just means that it is a way of expressing a negative thought or idea.
So contrary is a word that means something that is opposite of what it says. In other words, it is a word that makes no sense. For example, the definition of contrary is a negative idea, and the opposite of that idea is another negative idea. For example, the definition of opposite is a negative action, and the opposite of that action is a negative idea. The opposite of an action is another action, and so on.
That’s a good example, because contrary is a word meaning “opposite of something.” You can also go to a dictionary, and find that contradictory is a word meaning “a word that is contradictory to something else.” This is true in a similar way. So contrary is a negative idea, but it’s not a word that expresses an opposite idea. If I ask you to write a sentence that expresses a contradiction to something, you will write something that is not a contradiction.
