How often do we get frustrated because other people don’t want to see things the way we see them?
How annoying is it that we can’t get others to just understand that our opinion is logical?
It might just be because we our all stuborn and prefer to not change our minds. That’s why Antiheroes (@ireinga and me) propose a 2-hour-session called ‘Destroy Your Idea’, were we speeddate our way into trying to have our minds changed.
What to bring: a statement that you absolutely 100% agree with and get very agitated about when others disagree. For example: for me it would be when people end discussions with ‘there is no wrong or right, there is just different interpretations’. This drives me mad. It can also be ‘closing the borders of Europe is a bad move for our virtues and values’ or ‘nuclear energy is the best solution to no longer depend on fossil fuels’.
Then we will put ourselves through the exercise of letting other people debunk our statement and see whether we ourselves are capable of changing our minds.
Can be an interesting tool to unfail endless debates and going-nowhere-discussions.
