Persuasion is the power to convince a person or group that an argument is compelling or accurate. Whether you are having a one-on-one dialogue or in front of a giant audience, the goal is often the same—to convince them you are right. 

Below, you will find articles about how persuasion can work in your favor or against you. Persuasion, if used correctly, may assist you in becoming a more assertive person and learning to stand up for your opinions. It may also help you spot persuasion techniques from others, such as salespeople.
