Do you ever find it difficult to make decisions when you think both sides have a point? Do you sometimes find it difficult to understand or explain why you agree with something or someone?Do you think you could stand to improve the way you justify your opinions to others?
In this workshop, we'll be looking at how to detect a misleading argument designed to exploit a personal bias and respond to it during a debate. We'll also be looking at how to compare two equally strong arguments for opposing views, when making a difficult decision. You will receive a cheat sheet of 'logical fallacies' to help you work out if an argument is based on testable assumptions or personal bias. You will also learn a simple but effective framework for prioritising arguments.
This workshop is ideal for people who regularly experience one or more of the following issues:
- Taking longer to get to the point than they would like- Struggling to respond to an argument they know is flawed- Reconciling objective evidence with gut feeling when the two are in conflict
Participants can purchase lunch at the venue, but it is not included in the price of the ticket.
