In today’s masterclass, I will guide you on how to disagree with someone intelligently. I’ll show you how to engage in a conversation without resorting to personal attacks, mudslinging, or other immature behavior often seen when people face differing perspectives. 

Tune in to learn how to disagree intelligently!

Show notes:

[07:57]#1 If you’re going to disagree with someone intelligently, the number one thing you must do is understand the full context of the other person’s beliefs.

[25:47]#2 Understand and be able to make the other person’s point as if you agreed with it.We call this the steel man position.

[31:58]#3 Skepticism is not only accepted, but encouraged with a caveat.
