5 Simple Tricks to Help You Win Any Argument We all get into arguments from time to time. But how do you deal with those people who consistently want to fight and act like they are always right? Contradicting them just feeds their desire for conflict and will frustrate and cause strife. Here are five alternative methods for dealing with this type of difficult person. 1. Smile: Deflect the anger. Ask questions designed to get the other person to think about why he or she is upset. It's very difficult to argue with someone who is smiling and conversing without resistance. 2. Let them think your point of view is their own: To do this requires some subtlety but is very powerful against extremely stubborn people who will never admit they are wrong. The trick is to ask questions designed to manipulate the person into arriving at your conclusion "on their own." 3. Admit your mistakes: If you did something wrong or made a mistake, just be humble and admit it. This sound like you're conceding defeat, but actually this wins immediately since it takes the combative person completely off guard. One of two things usually happens next: either the other person will feel bad for even bringing up the issue and will suddenly be very helpful, or they won't know how to respond immediately which gives you the opportunity to say something leading the conversation into a more productive direction. 4. Shut up: This is an especially strong technique when you know you're right and you suspect the other person knows it but isn't ready to admit it. Let the person fumble and squirm around while you just listen. "One of the lessons of history is that nothing is often a good thing to do and always a clever thing to say." ~ Will Durant 5. Do Not Attack: Whatever you do, do not attack the other person. Sure, you might know the exact thing to say to hit 'em where it hurts. You might be cold and calculating with your logic and reduce the argument (and the person's self-esteem) to dust. Or you could follow the techniques above and come away from the argument with an ally instead of a foe. Your choice. http://www.ezsoftech.com/stories/mis57.asp
Salaam Allaykum, I was wondering what your opinions are on Muslims performing magic tricks. Performing magic has been a life long ambition of mine and something that I still practise today yet since I decided to start taking Islam more seriously (something I decided upon quite recently) it hit me that I may have to (reluctantly) give up this hobby. I have already done a bit of research myself and there are some resources that have told me magic is fine as long as it isn't black magic (Fortune Telling, Voodoo, Contacting Jinn etc.) yet other resources simply take magic to be haraam in any way, shape or form. Personally I haven't and of course don't plan on performing black magic, what I do is simply for entertainment purposes yet I would still like to know, if at least just to put my mind at rest, whether what I am doing is acceptable or not. Thank you for taking your time to read (and respond).
Read this first please to avoid giving money to a website that seeks to harm you by tricking you into giving them money: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?/topic/235001901-marriage-muslims-iranian-arabs-turks-must-read/ I warned people about a site called "Iranian.com" -- it is NOT run by normal Iranians, but by members of the Bahai cult, the MEK (a terror group), and zionist Jews. (They pretend to be regular Iranians and stir conflict among people and seek to defame Muslims. They also trick people into giving them money from other websites -- make sure to read the first link. Many of the commentators use false Iranian names.) On that site they now advertise the following (their words not mine): "Ayatollah Golpayegani must be arrested and brought on trial in the International Criminal Court (ICC) of the Hague. This poster offers a reward of 1 million dollars to anyone who apprehends this "Grand Criminal" ALIVE!" http://www.iranian.com/main/2012/may/wanted-alive
