Let's face it... there are people who disagree with us! Sometimes they have a very, very different view on politics, religion, or dancing. In some cases, no matter what we say, they are going to disagree with us. Sometimes we might be fortunate enough to be able to at least agree on a point or two, or provide a clue to the other person that might lead them to seek out more information later that could change their opinion (even if very slowly). And of course, it is usually worthwhile to be able to have some empathy, and try our best to see things from the other person's perspective. Maybe we are nearly 99.9% sure we are right, but trying to see the other person's view, can help solve deeper issues, even if we are right. But trying imagine we "could" have missed something I think can show some we respect the other person. Also, I usually try to avoid a sense of finality where possible. For example, even if I believe it, I don't bring out the idea that I would NEVER see it their way. So those are a few points, but what are some of your strategies?
