Why can't I convince people I'm right even though I'm right most of the times? Poor arguing skills?

    I like to live by the old saying .....I WOULD RATHER BE LOVED THAN RIGHT .......nobody but nobody loves a know it all. But I hear ya ! I know what you mean. I think it may have something to do with the fact your trying too hard. Humans do not appreciate when a person needs something in an emotional way (you need your atta boys and appreciation) we are afraid of it and we run ...that probably has something to do with it.

    Why is it important to convince people that you are right, when you know you are? This is insecurity and people can sense it.

    If you are arguing with the elderly and if you cannot take instructions well, then consider the fact that you may be wrong.

    Intelligence does not produce wisdom and there is a difference.

    Socrates was right too. We are still trying to listen to him. Much less trying to get anyone to hear you. Perhaps if you come back in a few thousand years they may be working on it. But don't count on it. There is a lot of competition for dominance in the area of ideas.

    We are all individualistic, meaning that we are all different in thinking.

    Our minds are as different as our finger prints -

    no two are identical. Palmistry also says the same

    thing. Every human is unique. Not only do our

    organs differ, but our personalities differ. Each

    human develops different goals, and has special

    traits or feelings which differ in a million

    different ways from others.

    Significant differences exist between the male and female brains. Although what follows has been meticulously gathered from the research and writings of leading scientists and psychologists, it is by no means a hard and fast rule or description of every man and every woman. Every person is different and unique.

    That every person is unique and has an intrinsic worth.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_variability

    Everyone is different no matter what, although there are some people who are similar but not the same.

    Aristotle once said, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be

    able to entertain a thought without accepting it." Listening to

    others' ideas may not be easy, but it could be an valuable way to

    learn something new or change your perspective on life.

    “You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”

    — Albert Camus

    Each group that they belong to and each characteristic they call their own contributes to the diversity that is needed for humans to thrive. Each individual adds something different to the group in temperament, skills, and genes. And each group, however small, adds spice to the larger group.

    Some of us are better at healing or hunting or even thinking. But the healer needs the hunter, just as the hunter needs the healer. The thinker needs the doer, just as the doer needs the thinker.

    proverb: People vary greatly in character, tastes, and abilities (often used as a comment on what the speaker feels to be strange behaviour)

    https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/it_ta...

    it takes all kinds to make a world

    Alternative forms:

    it takes all kinds

    it takes all sorts

    it takes all sorts to make a world

    it takes all types

    it takes all types to make a world

    Diversity is essential: the world would be incomplete if everyone were alike.

    “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust apon them”

    — William Shakespeare (via giveandletliive)

    “Some people dream of success… while others wake up and work hard at it.”

    “Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.”

    Our interests and behavioral dispositions are as unique as our fingerprints.

    Even within a family, one’s way of being happy may not be the same with another. One, for example, may find that he is happier when he is in a contemplative mood and his twin brother, steeped in group laughter and fun, may find solitary disposition rather boring.

    We notice that the differences grow bigger when one has to deal with people from other cultures.

    Humans are free to do what they want, without this freedom there could be no morality. In such a case, no basis for what could be deemed as good or bad behavior in the eyes of a God because without freewill we would just be pre-programmed unable to change or alter what has already been laid out in front of us. There are only two things certain in each one of our lives, we live, and then we die, everything in between is up to the individual.

    Hard determinism only clouds the mind if we are enslaved to thinking we are free, then those who believe that they have no control over life are going through life making decisions based on what they perceive as pre-determined. To say we have a path set for us is to make us no more than a robot, and because robots cannot discuss topics intelligently and cannot act intelligently in situations proves that theory wrong.

    We all have identity each human individual is unique even twins are different. Our minds are just as unique as our fingerprints

    http://www.exampleessays.com/viewpaper/90697.html

    Every child is born with a unique set of personality traits. Ask any

    woman who has given birth to two or more children and she will attest to

    the fact that while still in the womb her children showed marked

    differences in their behavior.

    http://www.enotalone.com/article/5582.html

    Each of us is at the center of our own world. Each individual experiences his or her own life more fully than anyone else can. No one else. For each of us, our own tapestry of highly personal and unique experiences influences how we perceive ourselves. we are the masters of our own identity and we fabricate our personalities based on what we deem essential.

    Because arguing doesn't change people's minds. DISCUSSION does, where there's a give and take, not one person doing a soapbox rant.

    Debating involves a balance of defending your beliefs and using points one by one and not all at once,, while at the same time attacking your opponents beliefs with evidences and individual points, so as to not overwhelm them. Asking questions and getting your opponent involved, as no one likes to talk to an individual who hogs 90% of the conversation.
