Is your girlfriend or boyfriend always right? No matter what you say, they will always be right? Well, in this tutorial learn how you can win in an argument fair and square with a few simple techniques.
You Will Need:
• The focus of an attack dog
• A good memory
• The will to exaggerate
Step 1: Don't back off
Don't back down. Calmly document your points with objective facts.
Step 2: Disarm opponent
Disarm your opponent by asking clarifying questions and using their answers against them.
Step 3: Cross-examine
Cross-examine the other person and let them tie themselves up in their own logic. Once you threaten their ego, you have them on the ropes.
Step 4: Keep track of failed points
Keep track of your opponent's failure to rebut certain points and state these at the end as proof of their agreement with your position.
Step 5: Show humility
Admit your own mistakes and keep an open mind if you want to be taken seriously. Let them save face so you find commonalities that make them think your point was their idea.
Step 5: Top with a jacket
Top your leggings with a jacket. Hip-length jackets are flattering, as are embellished jackets, like a fashionable military jacket.
Step 6: Use one weak position to discredit all positions
Refute their weakest point, and declare this as proof that all their opinions on this topic are faulty.
Tips: It's best not to try to bring up something you cannot prove, or it could undermine all your other points. Also, make mental notes during the argument of points your opponent can't refute.
Fact: Aristotle's logical works are the earliest formal study of logic.
