    Have you seen the Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman debate?
    See for yourself how he deals with it and give us your opinion in the comments!

    We've all found ourselves in conversation and felt attacked like we started off talking about one thing and then the other person twisted our words and before we knew it, we lost our cool, lost respect in their eyes, and maybe even acted like a jerk. Now, I don't normally do the same person twice in a row but this interview between Cathy Newman and Jordan Peterson was just too interesting of an opportunity to discuss how you can handle someone who uses subtle conversational tricks to bully you into looking dumb. So in this video, you're gonna see firsthand some of the most common tricks that people might be using on you and you're also gonna learn how to reverse those so that you can walk out of a kind of aggressive situation having earned more respect than you had going in.

    So first off, to stop a conversational bully, you have to realize what's going on before it's too late. Now, typically, a person will reveal their aggressive attitude early on with their tone of voice and their word choice. Check out the rest that we will show in this video and how Jordan Peterson tackles them.

    1:49 Jordan Peterson deals with so-you're-saying trap
    2:39 Jordan Peterson deals with the "assuming the sale"
    5:30 Jordan Peterson deals with the smash technique
    7:08 But don't straw man the other person's ideas though
    7:47 And visual imagery can also help
    8:25 You can show them that they're already agreeing with you

    The first 12 seconds describe my sister. I just talk about something random and suddenly she paints me as the devil in the altar of social justice. Whatever you want to feel about that.

    By using unbeatable arguments like law books. Laws are throughout the world based on common morals and ethics. So if you break them, you break commonly accepted morals and ethics who are the binding glue of every society.

    I hate his supporters but yes, he always debates at an A+ level. Media personalities are just not on the same level as him.

    You're not showing the whole interview. Peterson said a few disconcerting arguments that were really vague. It's always a bit hard to interview him. And i find him a little condescending.
