In my experience of learning English, I notice some words (very few) are used in practicality to mean something else that are not necessarily included in the definitions of dictionaries. Here's one that 2 of my friends are adamant about the word's correct usage.....accroding to them.

They use the "ambivalent" as they would "indifferent" or "don't care". But I don't see that definition anywhere under "ambivalent" in several dictionaries. Are they mistaken? These are college students. I would appreciate some explanation.

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion the indifferent person doesn't care one way or the other while the ambivilent person feels pressure either way because he either wants or doesn't want both optionsl
