How to disagree diplomatically
Do you have tips to deal with issues in a diplomatic manner even when disagreeing with others? Share your tips and advice here.
There are so many platforms to learn at. But I chose ISC because I wanted something else. I wanted to learn diplomacy. The tightly knit rigid structure of this website is what I thought will teach me diplomacy and I was right about it. I am very informal in my ways in real life, even with elders. But coming to this site and interacting with experienced members was a fruitful experience. I got my articles rejected a multiple times, a thorough display of rigidity in rules. So these measures and experiences were what made a little bit diplomatic I guess. I think of all the things, ISC teaches diplomacy the best.
Now that being said, not everyone learns the same. Some might still be working undiplomatically in this website. When most times this habit does'nt hurt anyone, sometimes few undiplomatical words may slip and cause chaos. These words though not aimed to hurt anyone's sentiments, their in-adept use might hurt some. Everyone has opinions.
There are thousands of ways one can agree or disagree to other's opinions in an argument. But care must be taken that argument stays diplomatic. I can list down many tips to do so, but I won't. I wish members of ISC themselves contributed some methods here below.
Instead I would just say this. Imagine you are standing before a mirror and telling to yourself the words you are supposed to type. If you felt hurt, don't post such words. In past few days there has been a huge number of distasteful comments and downright insults in ISC, which ultimately ruins the website's decorum. Let us all try being more diplomatic.
