Some people think it's better to choose friends who always have same opinions as them. Other people believe it's good to have friends who sometimes disagree with them. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

There is a group of persons who admires that it is a fortune of choosing
friends
who opine as similarily as us whereas another group of masses reckons that a certain time if associates who do not always agree with us
also
good. I gravitate partially with the given statement and in
this
essay, I will illustrate my perspectives on both sides of the arguments with suitable examples in the following paragraphs.
To begin
with, companions who always have the same opinions could be sometimes positively as well as negatively impact our relationships. On the
side
of positive development, if we have common instances of a particular phenomenon
then
it will be very easy to understand each other feelings, which make our contact even better in future. To illustrate, the Indian cricket team, which consists of more than 15 players, and all the players opine with the decision taken by the captain Virat Kholi.
As a result
, we can see the tremendous achievements of our cricket team in recent years. On another
side
, if someone has similar stances
then
this
does not always make sense in every condition.
For example
, if we have the same views on things
then
we can not see the worst part of a particular situation like when I was studying at that time my best buddy Sunny had the same opinion as me but in solving multiple choice question we both wrong because of the same views.
As a result
, we both failed in cracking our board exam with fewer numbers.
However
, on the other
side
of the given
argument
, sometimes discord is good for our
relationship
with our colleagues. On the positive
side
of
this
argument
is that if someone disagrees with us in some crucial matters it will a good fortune for us, and sometimes they can lead us towards the correct path.
For instance
, a survey which I have read recently on Healthy Lifestyle magazine said that around 70% of friendship build even stronger if each person has an
argument
on certain views which help everyone to come over from a detrimental situation.
However
, a negative
side
of
this
argument
says that there are a few extreme cases when discord can not make sense in maintaining the
relationship
with
friends
.
Such
as, I read an article on Facebook which shows that there are 20% of juveniles easily cut their
relationship
with
friends
just only because they do not follow what they say to their
friends
. To conclude, neither having a friend who always has the same opinion as us nor a friend always raise doubt and show disagreement with us is good for maintaining a healthy
relationship
in friendship. But, a mixture of
this
type of friend really build a good for our bounding.

Word Count

IELTS says that you should write a minimum of 250 words in writing task 2. If you go under word count you will lose marks in task response.

A very long essay will not give you a higher band score.

Aim for between 260 to 290 words in writing task 2. This will ensure a concise essay and will be realistic in terms of time management. You have only 40 minutes to write the essay and you need around 10 minutes of planning time, so you will not be able to write a long essay in 30 minutes.
