It must be understood that a dispute is a game in which the roles are distributed ... Moreover, the motivation for participating in a dispute, as a rule, is nothing more than a dispute for the sake of an argument. A vicious circle arises, a person argues in order to argue, at some stage even the arguments are unimportant to him, he will challenge any of your position, only because you have put yourself in the position of an opponent from the very beginning. This vicious circle can be broken in only one way - to lose in an argument, to agree with the arguments of the opponent, that is, to become "our own", and then to work as a kind of "Shtirlitsa", gradually pumping over his idea. Any concept of the world is inaccurate and incomplete, becoming an ally of your opponent, you will be able to constantly point out to him some of the shortcomings of his picture of the world, and he, in turn, will perceive them uncritically, since it is not the enemy who is shouting at him, on the other side of the barricades, but an ally with whom you can discuss the inner kitchen
