This article endeavors to answer the question, "How to Win in an Argument." An argument is indeed a pain in the neck, but this Hub will give you some valuable

tips to overcome argument or discussion. In a work place such as in office for instance or in any places one cannot avoid to get entangled in clashing ideas with one or more of your colleagues or with other people, and as a result you will be ensnared into a trap that will surely test your mettle especially in terms of your patience and self-control. An argument may breed quarrel, and this proves to be a disaster whether you are in right side or not, for it put you on the bad pedestal, so as to speak. Arguments that are hatched from anger will definitely spur disaster as it tarnishes your image; in other words, no matter what angle you look at it, differences with that of other people will serve you in the bad light.

Here are some ways that will enable you to help you save your skin in an argument that will likely get you tempted in waging a fierce war with your foe.

In arguing, keep your cool, if you feel unaffected with the slugs thrown at you and in no way create any damage, then let them do their stuffs, besides slugs that is breed out of bad motives will die out naturally sooner or later

One of the best ways to win in an argument is to avoid it. Wisdom of doing nothing that is. If it will only give you bad impressions among your peers or with other people, then why get involved with things that will surely pull you down.

What is the use of winning in an argument when you lose their heart? It will always make us happy if we win in an argument, but oftentimes, no matter how good we are in dishing out those fine points, your opponents will always feel they also won in the argument. At the end of the day both of those who engaged in a fiery discussion will feel like they won the battle. Sometimes we need to take a one-step backward, two-step forward approach to get us going with our objectives. If we win the battle in an argument it is most likely that they will not give their best while working with them. Give necessary and appropriate courtesy and praise for their respective stand points, and see to it that what the majority desires should prevail, to avoid getting unbiased. Additionally, Make sure you are guided in a common goal of getting things done with efficacy and teamwork.

      One of the things that I was taught while working for corporate America is to back down out of arguing with a customer, because if you win the argument, you will ultimately lose the customer. Reading this solidified that philosophy/fact. Great hub, GH! Thanks again my friend.

      I loved that pic by the way. If and when I do have a daughter, I hope she's just as cute, lol.
