The Argument and The Conversation

Good conversation is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.  – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

In class today we talked about having conversations. Our first task was to find a ground we disagreed on with another person and then have an argument about the chosen topic. We decided to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of a Microsoft computer and an Apple Mac. I chose to support Microsoft and my partner supported Apple. at the end of the argument we both came to the conclusion that I won and that consequently, Microsoft is the better choice when buying a computer. Personally, I didn’t feel like I had strong arguments as I do not have a lot of knowledge about the topic at hand. During the argument, I tried to use the tips I have learned while arguing, such as: respecting your opponent and keep your emotions at bay. It was a fun experience to argue about something that I usually don’t engage in. From arguing with my partner and from previous arguments I have decided to write down some helpful tips you can use when arguing.

  1. Be fair, try to have a civil argument
  2. Respect your opponent
  3. Do NOT attack your opponent, only their ideas
  4. If you are wrong, admit it
  5. Apologize when needed
  6. Be open to new ideas

The second conversation we had today was with another partner where we discussed the book we are currently reading. We are both reading the same book, which you can read about here. During our conversation about the two male protagonists, I learned that I sometimes view characters differently than other people. my partner and I both agreed that the struggle Marcus goes through is a tough one that is partially unnecessary. What we picked up on is that even though we can not really relate to the two main characters we can use their struggles in order to help others. For instance, Marcus does not have any friends at school and struggles alone cause he has no one to confide in. In order to make sure that this does not happen to anyone we know we can try to be helpful and help those who need it.
