How to Put Yourself on the Side of Debate PointsArgument points are the central components in a debate. It's important that you understand these points and be able to point them out to other people, so that you can win the debate. In this article, I'm going to discuss some of the most important ones for debate.
The first point is to determine who's right. Each side has a number of argument points they think are valid. You'll want to know if those points are valid before you ever get started with the debate.
After that, it's a good idea to bring up something that's close to each point. For example, one person might bring up a matter of fact about an event they've experienced, while another might bring up the possible side effects of that event. Using facts as arguments is the most effective way to get across the point. On the other hand, if you're talking about potential side effects, make sure that you avoid sounding too scaremongering.
Next, you should have a point of interest that you can bring up to help support your argument. Again, the topic should be something that isn't something that's an argument point. If you bring up something negative about a person, make sure that it's not used as an argument point in order to discredit their point. Do this by using wording that doesn't discredit their point.
Point out the flaw in what they're saying. A good rule of thumb is to point out something that they haven't done, or something that's wrong with the previous thing that they said. Don't use words like 'I'you' unless it's been specifically asked for. Don't bring up a person's name or likeness, unless you know the other person personally.
Last, make sure that you bring up something that you feel is relevant. Remember that you're doing this to win the debate. Don't get bent out of shape if you're not winning. Remember that you're debating not on how to run a business, but to find out if you and the other person will work together or not. Bring up something that is relevant, and you should win.
One final point that you should make is that you're not trying to prove anyone wrong. By that, I mean that it's not an insult to bring up something that's unfair. It's meant to make you think. If you can do that, then the person you're arguing with will probably agree with you, because they're going to want to get the point across.
As you can see, it's best to be able to bring up argument points that are specific and can easily be countered. This allows you to give more weight to your argument, which in turn gives you the chance to win the debate.
