Contrariness

I feel a bit contrary, so this is a good day to investigate the topic.

To my mind, contrariness is not identical to a sort of mathematical tendency to seek contradictions whenever someone makes an All statement or a None statement.

For one thing, contrariness is more a matter of temperament than of enquiry after validity. For another, I don't reckon that validity is an issue one way or the other for contrariness.

What do you think, oh Marydom?
