I am pretty non-confrontational.  Even when I have a strong opinion about something I don't assert it with the goal to change someone else's mind.  I've found that this is mostly ineffective.

After becoming a teacher I've become even better at not asserting my own opinions but rather, drawing out those of my students.  The worst thing to do in a classroom is kill an atmosphere of tolerance for differing opinions and open-mindedness.  Teachers have to be very careful about how much of their personal beliefs they bring to a class discussion.  If my students ask what I think, I usually wait until the very end of the discussion to give my answer.  That way, students who disagree with me aren't afraid to answer for themselves.
