Evaluate Arguments The art of evaluating arguments entails analyzing information objectively and accurately, questioning the quality of supporting evidence, and understanding how emotion influences the situation.
Common barriers include confirmation bias, or allowing emotions-yours or others-to get in the way of objective evaluation.
People may quickly come to a conclusion simply to avoid conflict. Being able to remain objective and sort through the validity of different positions helps people draw more accurate conclusions.
