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.

Great technique, here's how to win a debate over the internet:

1. Deny everything.

2. Accuse people of collaborating with the Zionists.

3. If you haven't won by now, call them kuffar and start quoting religious texts that are out of context.

Win all around

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."

This act of minipulation would be a perfect aid in a sales job. Master it and you will be successful.

here is an even better point, dont argue at all

Arguing is part of Logic and therefore Philosophy. It is unevadable. There will never be two persons who agree in everything completely. If there are, maybe between master and student. What you mean is arguing by violent means which should not be done. Normal arguing is in everyday life. Life conflict consists of arguing with people. Getting along with people is a form of arguing.
