How to win an argument

You are doing your phd in psychology right? Can you tell me how to win a fight? I get asked this question many times.

Frankly speaking, I am not sure how. However, I will try and give you some steps to do that.
  1. A quote from my favorite book - The Bible: "Don't get involved in foolish and ignorant arguments that only start fights" (2 Tim 2:23)
  2. Respect other's opinion
  3. Stay away from people who are jobless
  4. Don't waste your time with irritating people
  5. Don't try to convince people out of their own ideas
  6. Losing an argument is sometimes good if you are winning the person
  7. Why bother!
Do I need a phd for this? I don't think so. I think it is more about common sense :)

Analyse — all things!
Accept — only good things!
Avoid — all questionable things!
