It appears that some people will yell at others when they feel their losing an argument. They use this tactic to annoy the individual into submission. This topic is constantly used in political arguments where emotions outweigh logic. Just like a bully who frightens people this individual needs to be dealt with but how? How does a person battle against these tactics?
(1) Ignore their outburst but deal with the emotional side of their argument “For example I understand your pain but…”
(2)Focus on others who are in the audience and insure that there interests are pursued with your argument.
(3) Tell the individual that you appreciate their passion on the issues but that we should show respect for all points of view.
(4) Do not continue the debate if nothing else is gained. State your points clearly, logical and with passion but no when enough is enough and move on.
