How to Win Every Argument 2

How to Win Every Argument


When you find yourself embroiled in a fight, or part of a heated debate, it can be tempting to try to win the argument. It’s only human to want to be “right,” which is likely why we get into fights in the first place. But the single best thing to keep in mind when arguing isn’t winning, but listening, understanding, and then diffusing the fight.

I know, that doesn’t sound anywhere near as fun. You might be wondering what the point of a heated debate would be, or why you’d even want to have a passionate (or even angry) discussion if someone isn’t crowned victorious. But if you’re truly fighting, or something’s at risk — like your relationship or your job — the last thing you want to do is risk it all for the sake of winning.
