Comment: Argue against a third person who isn't there.

(See in situ)


Argue against a third person who isn't there.

Brian Tracy taught me this.

Rather than arguing with the person, ask your 'opponent', the audience etc to imagine a third person everybody holds in high esteem, (like Ron Paul) and just ask 'what would they think?'

Kind of the basis of the 'What would Jesus do?' bumper stickers you see...

Extremely effective.

btw Brian Tracy is a genius with balls of steel - he and a friend crossed the Sahara desert when he was 18, just to see if they could do it and live (no joke).

I saw the best minds of my generation, destroyed by pandas starving hysterical naked
