Pacing your reality

Even he does believe in your ideas, he understands the reasoning behind the idea. Accept that your counterpart may have some reasoning behind their idea. This understanding establishes a openness in the counterpart's logic. The goal is not to make the other party feel inferior, rather the goal should be to help them change their ideas, and educating them.

To even establish a mutual respect for openness he will raise a question that the counterpart may be thinking of and answer it to establish more confidence in his idea.

Even if the argument is won, do not belittle your opponent. This may reinforce their beliefs.
