Even if you consider debating more interesting (I do as well), the vast majority of people dislike this stuff and find it arrogant, rude etc. which is why there's the common advice to never talk about religion and politics, the most divisive topics out there.
If you want to be popular and well liked, just be extremely agreeable without looking like you're being disingenuous. If someone mentions a band you dislike or think little of, you don't immediately start shitting on it or debating its quality. You either mention something positive or move on to something else. People get put off when they have to defend something they like and generally have an aversion to even productive discussion (especially succubi). The purpose of conversation is rarely to get to the truth of the matter, but really just about building rapport and common ground. Normies really enjoy hours of saying "oh, me too" and comparing aspects of their lives with glee.
I had only one friend in high school that I enjoyed talking to and we had completely opposing political and philosophical view points, often getting into heated debates. Such relationships are rare because people are so sensitive to any kind of disapproval. Even if professional settings, you have to dress up criticism with fluffy language so the cunt doesn't feel personally attacked and acts with passive-aggression towards you. When a member of your friend group starts complaining about something, you're supposed to support them and not question them. "Oh this police guy was a complete asshole to me today" "Uh, did you do something wrong?" "Oh c'mon anon, of course not, how could you even ask that, all cops are pigs". Your natural inclination might be to get to the bottom of some truth, to figure out the rational behind the situation, but to most people you're communicating animosity and not just curiosity.
