I’m persistent. I find the hardest most closed minded targets and I target them. I’m GOING to get them to loosen up a little.
I don’t need them to agree with me; agreement isn’t the issue. But I’m going to crack their nuts open a little (meaning heads… what a weird expression, #deeznuts is coming to mind now) somehow.
People rarely say “no” and walk away. They have a point to prove. They’re smart. I give them a good battle. I win by gaining a friend which is a receptive ear, even if I have to give them the trophy in the argument dept to get there.
