Key Ideas

Winning an Argument

The odds of winning an argument require more than just logic and rationality, as there are a lot of other factors involved.

By understanding and changing the 'frames' a person uses and center them around a shared belief, we can help our cause.

Change the Frame

During the course of an argument, to increase compliance towards your belief, you can change the framing of the existing belief of the listener.

Do not challenge A belief

Instead of challenging someone's existing belief, which always leads to resistance, it is much better to connect your own position to their beliefs.

The frames we use to see the world

The frames we create for what we experience both inform and limit the way we think.  And most of the time we are not aware of the frames we are using.

Being able to question and shift your frame of reference is an important key to enhancing your imagination because it reveals completely different insights.

Reframing problems
It takes effort, attention, and practice to see the world around you in a brand-new light.

You can practice reframing by physically or mentally changing your point of view, by seeing the world from others’ perspectives, and by asking questions that begin with “why.”
