Top 5 Take Aways from Chapter 4 “Yes/ No/ Okay, But”

Estelle Kao. Ga-yeon Lee. Francisco Canales  

5 things we found important:

1. If you are agreeing, provide details or explain your views. Do not just merely say “I agree..”, instead point out unnoticed implications.

2. When disagreeing, provide persuasive reasons why you disagree.

3. “Twist it” move uses the authors evidence, but you present it in a contradicting way.

4. Being undecided is acceptable, but you must be clear in explaining why you have conflicting viewpoints. 

5. Don’t be afraid to disagree and hurt others arguments. It is necessary to have conflict in a healthy debate.
