How does one go about changing another person's mind?
Throughout life, you will meet people who don't agree with you, its inevitable. Sometimes it's just a mild disagreement like what flavor of smoothie tastes better to the extremes that were seen in the Cold War. Much more often, verbalization of our disagreements leads to a solution, or at least a resolution to disagree. But other, times it may necessitate force, as seen in WWII.
Because we are on Ted, how do you go about verbally convincing someone to see your point of view? Statistics? Rhetorical questions? What?
I think it'd be interesting to see people's responses, and if you could mention examples of particularly hard people to convince and how you may or may not have convinced them.
