When someone is trying to convince you of something what does it take to persuade you?
I personally think that when given with an argument people are easily swayed in one direction depending more on emotional properties rather than intellectually soundness.
Once you hear something you like you accept the whole agreement and vise versa for something you don't like. Rather than taking the time to examine the facts presented and whether they even support the conclusion being drawn.
Logical and/or factual arguments... emotional statements can only have an impact when the subject in question is one of taste, or philosophy and not of reasonable deduction. "Convince" and "persuade", in my opinion reflect exactly this differentiation, since I can be only convinced that something is true if prevented with proof, while I can be persuaded that a decision is good or bad, for instance, on the basis of emotional impact in addition to reasonable arguments.
So your basically saying you reason both emotionally and logically when faced with an arguement. Which one weights more importantly in your opinion? That's what I'm asking
With two very different kinds of arguments... that is my point. One cannot simply state that logic or emotion carry the same weight for the same argument. I gather you are referring to intellectual discussion... my answer is that logic is absolute.
A group of good points that go along with my beliefs for the situation. If someone follows the rules of speech and thinks wisely about the support, agreeing is easy.

Why are people trying to convince themselves that the FSM is not on par with their own religions?There is not one logical reason that the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster should be seen as any different from all...
