18 Ways to Handle the Argumentative Person

Kevin Hogan on Effective Communication

Time Out!

What can you do if you are an argumentative communicator?

  • Ask more questions.

  • Be interested in how the other people in your life came to believe and think what they think.

  • Be aware that not everyone perceives discussion, debate, arguing and fighting in the same way. Find out what those important to you believe about each of these things.

  • Ask the important people in your life specifically how you can communicate with them to help them know you don't want to argue, but discuss.

  • Determine why you need to be "right" or make someone else "wrong" in heated communications.

  • Always think of your intention. Is your intention gentle? Speak more quietly. People associate quieter tones with gentler intentions.

  • Show people you care in ways other than verbally so they know you care when you do argue.

  • If you find yourself getting into a heated discussion, ask the other person if they feel you are arguing or discussing. Ask what the difference would be for them.

  • Ask your friend/associate/partner how you can communicate without giving the appearance of arguing.

  • Be certain that you make clear your intention so it is not misunderstood!

Already you have come a long way toward communicating more efficiently, effectively, and gently!
