Persuasion focus on the emotion or feeling of people whereas logical argument refers to the validity of the claim. Persuasion may end up in fighting when people focus on their emotion too much and ignore the other side’s claim. On the other hand, since some of social norms are based on emotion, logical argument has danger of claiming the opinion which people may find too heartless, resulting in provoking their anger. Either way, emotion is the primary cause of turning an argument into a fight; conflict occurs when it is emphasized too much, or neglected too much. I agree with the idea that trying to understand the contestant’s situation can keep the argument from being uncomfortable. Even if it can make people aggressive sometimes, we cannot live in society without emotion. Therefore, when we have an argument, we need to pay attention to make our emotion neither absent nor strengthened.
A Persuasive argument is based on claims from personal opinion, and emotion to influence people's attitude, beliefs, or behaviors. Logical arguments use factual evidence to make claims. Some individuals may disagree leading into emotions, personal feelings or beliefs, and when being emotionally triggered could possibly turn it into a passive aggressive argument. Lastly, if the argument has become uncomfortable or overly aggressive the logical thing to do would be to pull out the emotions and focus on the topic argument.
A Persuasion argument tends to be base claims on personal opinion. You use persuasion to try an convince people to believe in what you believe. This tends to be more one-sided because you want others to believe that your idea is the best. Logical arguments are backed up by facts to prove their individual points. When an argument turns into a fight it because of some of the individuals letting their emotions or beliefs get the best of them. The best way to get out or avoid a uncomfortable exchange of opinions is if both parties agree to leave personal emotions out and to present only facts that will present their argument.
The first presenter stated that logical arguments are usually followed up by facts and persuasive arguments are opinions that one feels strongly about. I would agree with his remarks and would add that persuasion usually contains fallacy to back up ones claims. As for a logical argument, one would try their best to keep feelings detached in order to keep the argument reasonable. Both presenters concluded with stating that one must be respectful of others opinions to keep from an argument getting out of hand. I would agree. A main problem when it comes to arguments, in general, is the lack of an open mind for what other people believe. If we all kept a logical attitude, there wouldnt be any arguments getting irrational. But then again, we'd be pretty robotic, wouldn't we?
I agreed with what both of the presenter had to say about the difference between a persuasive and logical argument. With a persuasive argument you are using the opinion you have formed and emotion to be able to back up your argument. And with a logical argument you have research and sources that are used to be able to prove that you are right. I also agreed when one of the presenters said that the best way to get out of an awkward exchange of opinion is simply to just respect their point of view.
I agree with the first speakers about how logical arguments are usually a claim and contain support to back themselves up. It requires authenticity while persuasion can easily be made up just to convince the other person to believe the same. In term of persuasion, the person being persuaded typically has no knowledge about the topic that the person doing the persuading is talking about. The best way to get out of either situation is to just agree with the person or say that you're not interested.
I agree with both speakers. I believe that persuasion requires one to know their audience in order to persuade them. on the other hand, a logical argument would require more facts and sources as a back up. arguments turn into fights when one person wants the other to agree with them. I would imagine a logical argument turning into a fight when both sides disagree on a fact or the validation of a source.
I concur with both of the speakers that stated the difference between persuasive and logical arguments. In summary, they both stated how logical arguments is a claim; supported by reasonings such as facts to prove their argument. The presenters stated how persuasive arguments can use personal evidence; opinions to convince the other opponent. Either way, this can lead to a argument due to the fact people always want to think they are always right. In conclusion, the best way to get out of a argument is to respectfully listen to the other persons point of view.
