Persuasion is when you have an opinion on a certain topic and you try and get the other person to take your side by giving them information on why you are right. Logical argument is thinking something (that is usually controversial) and arguing on why you are right and the other side is wrong. It turns into a fight when either side is too stubborn to think differently from their original idea. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable exchange is to say to the other person that you are right and will try and see their point of view.
In a logical argument it's usually around a controversial subject with supported evidence, and in a persuasive it's about convincing someone to take your side with little to no evidence. Persuasive ones tend to fight with the opposing side due to force opinions trying to be declared as facts. Whereas logically isn't about fighting or convincing them but trying to get the reader to understand and recognize their argument is valid. The best way to get out of uncomfortable exchange of opinions is to just accept their opinion and end it, like a classmate said. There's no point to try to have an intellectual discussion with someone who is unwilling to accept another persons opinions/views.
Persuasion is when you use emotions to try and get your point across. Logical argument uses facts and evidence to support your claim. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable situation is to just agree with the other person and walk away.
Both my classmates stated that persuasion does not need facts. However, a logical argument must be backed up with facts. In my opinion, persuasive arguments can try to trigger emotions in an individual and change their perspective regarding a certain topic. Individuals often use their words and emotions to try and persuade others. Logical arguments, however, need to have viable facts, statistics and surveys. These arguments are based on logic, and not emotions or fallacies.
Also,an argument tends to arise when both individuals do not agree with one another, and when one thinks he or she is the one that's correct. The best thing to do to get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinion is to suggest the other individual is probably right, and walk away.
The difference between persuasion and logical argument is that logical argument must be incontrovertible by a presentation of evidence that supports what you are saying, whereas persuasion does not have to depend on facts but only has to somehow sway the person into agreement with your point of view. These interchanges can turn into fights if neither person will understand or acknowledge the other's point of view. A fight can also happen if one of the people are not interested in resolving the argument but instead just want to get into a fight. When this happens, the presenters in class felt that the way to get out of it was to tell the other person he was right. I feel, however, that if there is an uncomfortable exchange of opinion, the way to deal with it is to continue communicating, back and forth, until some sort of agreement can be reached. Even if the person you are arguing with only wants to continue the argument, it could work to get the person to tell you why he wants to argue; then maybe the situation can be resolved. I do not believe that to just give up, tell the person he is right, and walk away is the best way to handle anything.
Persuasive arguements are used to convince an audience to agree with the arguement and the issue it establishes. In logical arguments, there is further explanation to the thesis and does not have the intentions to have the audience have on each perspective. These strategies of arguements can turn into fights by fallacies of personal plea, once it gets personal than it is more than an arguement. The best way to get out of an uncomfortable situation is to possibly have stronger facts about the argument.
Classmates say persuasion consists of emotion while logic consists of claims with evidence. Both are correct but can turn into fights for different reasons. Persuasion sparks a fight when emotions get out of hand while logical arguments can turn to a fight when someone loses their argument or if claims are backed up by a biased source. Dropping the argument is the best way to get out of both situations.
I heard one or two say persuasion is trying to convince, using you reasoning. Where
as logical argument is back by fact. The three people who shared all somewhat came up with the same conclusion to get out of a uncomfortable exchange and that is to respect the others opinion and not say anything after that
A persuasive argument is when you try to convince a person or group that your opinion is right without having evidence to back it up. A logical argument is when you have multiple sources to back you up to prove that your statement is true. It turn into a fight when either of the sides starts to lose their temper and use insults to belittle the other sides evidence. The best way to get out of a situation like that is to say tot he other person "maybe you're right, I'll definitely look into that".
The difference between persuasion and logical argument is the use of emotion. Persuasion is able to to use emotion and evidence to convince someone of an opinion. Logical argument uses only evidence or data instead of emotion. It informs rather than persuades. Persuasion can turn into a fight when one party tries to convince someone of something that threatens their idea of the world. People who feel like their world is being forced to change react negatively and dig their heels in. Logical argument will have the same effect on people when information that goes against their beliefs is presented to theming way to get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinion is usually to say let’s agree to disagree. It’s the polite way to say that you won’t change my mind and we should stop talking.
The difference between a persuasion and a logical argument is that persuasion is based on your own thoughts, trying to convince the other person with what you believe is right and making them see it in your point of view rather than a logical argument that is backed up by evidence. Normally a persuasion and a logical argument turn into a fight when logic is being used but the opposing side sees the claim in a whole different perspective causing a disagreement with one another and the best way to get out of an uncomfortable exchange of opinion is by being the bigger person in the argument and agreeing with them even though you still think they are wrong.
Based off of the information the presenters provided in class they mainly had the big idea of persuasion not needing any facts and being used to convince others. I personally agree with the idea that persuasion is used for convincing but I also believe facts can be used within it. As for persuasive arguments, although they should have a major use a facts, the only difference I would think of is persuasion isn't always closed to having a contradicting side to an idea. While a persuasive argument may only seem to be open to the side of the idea they believe in. The fact that others are not willing to consider the contradicting side is what I believe turns it into a fight and as the presenters all mentioned the best way to get out of it to say they were right, be the bigger person, and move on.
The difference between persuasion and logical argument is when one is backed up by evidence while the other one is supported by personal facts. Both can support something but are used in different terms. If I were in an uncomfortable situation I would listen to the point I have been brought and then walk away.
Persuasion is the act of convincing someone to do or believe something, while a logical argument is a process of creating a new statement from one or more existing statements. They both turn into a fight when someone has a different opinion. You can persuade someone all you want but there are some people who are either stubborn or right in their own way and still won’t agree with you whether it’s a true or false statement. The best way to get out of an argument is to tell the person you understand why they choose to see it the way they do and they should also consider seeing your side of things and just end it there.
