Have you ever changed your mind while forum arguing/debating? Or even witnessed it?Submitted by tonym on Sat, 05/11/2013 - 03:53
...and did you admit it at the time?
All I ever see are people stubbornly clinging to their positions. Seriously. What percentage of arguments do you see ending with something like, "That's an interesting point I hadn't thought of. I may have to re-think my position on this."
On a related note, does anyone know if there has been any scientific exploration into the area of opinion forming/holding and what the real art of persuasion is?
