I’ve never won an argument

And neither have you.

Because you can’t use anger to change the way how others perceive the world.

The recipient will only walk away from the conversation further cementing themselves into believing what they know. They are saying to themselves that they didn’t do a good enough job to get their point across. They’ll say you were being a jerk.

It gets us nowhere.

We are far more likely to have constructive dialogue when we recognize intent that we are all seekers of truth, that we can be persuadable in the face of evidence. Most of the time, we want the same thing.

We may not change someone’s mind (not all at once anyway). At the very least we can become more informed with how other’s see.
