7 Manipulative  Ways People  Use to Win Any  Arguments


7. Silence.

Sit in quiet for a long, uncomfortable

moment Whenever someone says anything

stupid or makes an unreasonable request.

People start second-guessing everything

and revealing the stupid things they have

done that got them to this point.


6. Storytelling goes hand in hand

with empathy and puts data to support

your argument in context.

Create a compelling story using




When your point seems part of a

narrative arc, each aspect of what you're

arguing is harder to pick on.


5. If you know you're right, but someone
is doing their best t argue with you, say

keep trying to argue Y.

4. Give them a sincere compliment.

If someone yells at you for no specific


Make it an absolute priority to ask how

their day was going or compliment

you up & essentially exposes them for

being an aggressor/manipulator.


2. While having a conversation with

they have a harder time lying to you or

trying to influence you.


1. Confusing people is always the
best strategy.

If someone is yelling?

Ask them if they want sand.

Comfort them, then say in a calm voice,

"'Do you want some sand?"

Works every time.
