When faced with a question to which you must speak your mind, do you find you are more persuasive when you are for or against the question?

    Does it matter whether the decision is internal or external?

    For example, if you are deciding whether or not to take a new job or to make an investment (internal), do you approach your analysis any differently that deciding who among a slate of candidates to support (external)?
Often we think we have to influence others.
    We face family decisions, policy issues, deciding for whom to vote.

    Does the audience dictate your tactics?
Do you find it necessary to counter every argument you hear?
    How hard is it to be against something (or someone) and not be seen as negative?

    Or are there advantages to smiling and nodding and leaving your position ambiguous?
What does it take for you to change your position on a question?

Editor's Note:
Comments Policy — We welcome comments, posts, and informed debate from a wide range of perspectives. Personal attacks, insulting/ vulgar posts, or repetitious/ false tirades have no place and can result in moderation or banning.
Civility — Clear-minded criticism is welcome, but play the ball and not the person. This includes speculation about motives or what ‘sort of person’ someone is. Civility, gentle humor, and staying on topic are superior debating tools.
Relevance — Please maintain focus on the topic at hand. Do not attempt to solve big problems in a single comment or to offer as fact what simply are opinions.
Ponder before you post — It’s bad form to dominate a discussion either by multiple posts in a row or too many posts in a given forum.
