1- Arguments often go the wrong way because the way people communicate can be misinterpreted. We’ve all been in a situation of that reason. It’s important to learn from your past mistakes in an argument to better approach when you don’t agree with someone or you’re trying make a point. Instead of coming off aggressive to educate someone, I could be kinder the next time I want to show someone the right way to do something. It’s important to analyze an issue to find the right way to address the audience. Since your audience is always important, you need to be aware of your writing at all times because you want to give them a visual. They need to be able to keep interest in your writing. In argumentative writing, if possible, always provide facts. Now I can use different strategies to engage in an argumentative conversation, or writing.
2- I’d say one of the few things that I know now is the understanding of how important the target audience actually is. I’ve been able to realize that when arguing everyone is entitled to their own opinion at the end of the day so with that being said in most cases there’s rarely ever a winner because it comes down to perspective and some people may share the same views and others might not share that same view. On that note discussing how you feel and stating your main points then allowing the person/people you’re arguing with to do the same. It’ll work best always if what’s stated is factual and that’s something I didn’t do in my last argument. I shouldâ€™ve mentioned why and how smoking is so terrible but I was convinced my friend had already known that and thatâ€™s why the argument was done with after the small talk that we had.
