How to win a debate

How many times have you found yourself stuck in a debate that you were about to lose even though you were right?

At some points of our lives we might be in need to win certain debates in order to spread our ideas or to make our lives better.

In this article i will tell you how to win a debate and i will also give you some tips that will certainly help you become more convincing.

What you need to do in order to win a debate

  • Don't push against the resistance: As soon as you find someone resisting a point skip it and move to another point. If someone kept defending one aspect of a product then don't get into the details of this aspect but instead bring another aspect into the discussion. For example if your friend said i am sure this product is reliable because of so and so then don't push against him but instead talk about another aspect such as the price and forget about reliability because that's a point he will fiercely defend
  • Use his belief system: If someone doesn't believe in God then you can't bring him quotes from religious books!! Lots of people never win debates because they don't put the belief system of the other person in their minds while debating.
  • Avoid philosophy and use facts: For every philosophical point you will make in a debate you will find another philosophical argument against it. Using philosophy will only result in moving in loops and would never lead to winning a debate. Instead use facts backed by numbers, papers, documents, researches...etc
  • Self confidence shakes beliefs: In the Solid Self confidence program i explained how talking confidently can make you appear more convincing and can even let you win a debate. Research has shown that all beliefs can be shaken and one of the most powerful things that you can do to shake someone's belief is to sound confident
  • Show him that you know more: This is one of the most powerful things you can do in a debate. Find any area that the other person mentioned and that you know a lot about and then show him you know more than him . This won't only shake his confidence but it will let him turn defensive
  • Once he turns defensive use the machine Gun and repetition: The machine Gun technique was called so because its based on the fact that you will shower your opponent with arguments to the extent that he won't be able to focus on any of them. Repetition on the other hand programs the subconscious mind and makes your words sound more convincing. As soon as someone starts getting defensive shower him with arguments and keep repeating your statements.

Final words about winning debates

Lots of people won't feel happy debating with you and some of them may even consider the debate personal, that's why its recommended that you avoid debates unless there is no other solution.

On the other hand make sure the debate never turns personal because that would result in sarcasm, nonconstructive criticism and even verbal assault.

In short, use this information well.
