Be respectful when giving your views

I have often seen people giving their views out of ignorance. They do not understand the subject well. They have gained some knowledge about the subject by reading the views of other people, but their understanding is limited.

They challenge the views of other people who are usually more knowledgeable about the subject. 

Here are some tips to avoid acting in what may appear to be an arrogant manner. 

a) Read the views of the other person carefully and understand their facts which molded their view

b) Weigh the difference of views carefully. 

c) Express your views in a respectful manner. Give your view and its reasons. Do not be arrogant and assume that you are right and they are wrong.

d) Be balanced. Express where you agree and where you do not agree. This will show you to be a more balanced and sensible person. Do not give the impression of being negative. 

e) Read more widely from people who hold different views and make a balanced judgement.

I hope that these tips will help you to make a better contribution to the discussion of any subject.
