How do arguments and language affect the way in which persuasion andlanguage differ
Weegy: The difference between persuasion and manipulation is that when applying the act of persuasion one is trying to change someone else’s mind by providing the individual with facts and logic. [ It’s a process of trying to guide the other toward the adoption of a specific idea to change their opinion. Manipulation on the other hand the person does not usually state facts, the individual will try to change the persons mind through any means available with no limits or morals. The truth will be twisted if necessary, Unlike with persuasion the manipulate will try to influence or control the other for selfish needs as with persuasion the persuader feels so strongly about towards the opinion and this individual will try to help the other to share the same point of view. It all depends on how the argument or language is presented if the argument states. ] (More)
