Take the other side

When people argue about an issue, they force themselves more and more into a corner. The more they argue for their side, the less they consider the other side.

Sometimes it might make sense to argue for the other side. See if you can convince others, as well as yourself, that the other side is correct.

This is different than playing devils advocate, that is when someone is trying to argue against a point, I’m suggesting that rather than arguing against a point, argue for the other side.

You might be surprised by what happens.

Have a great day!
