    ,wouldn't you?

    You’d like to grow things, wouldn't you?
    No, I wouldn't.
    I've read this answer today, but I don't understand why the writer used 'No, I wouldn't.' instead of 'Yes, I would.'

    He wouldn't like to grow things.

    If he would like to grow things, he'd say 'Yes, I would'.

    The person asking may have thought that the person would say yes, but the person answering thought differently.
