Observed Phenomenon:

An argument is two people making statements back and fourth at each other.

Hypothesis:

This generally happens because both people are attempting to get their point across.

Experiment:

When in a conversation with someone else and the conversation seems to be leading to an argument I will begin to only do one of the following three things:

(1) Allow the person to speak and only speak when the person asks me a question and only to answer the question that was asked.
(2) Allow the person to speak and only make a brief statement and ask a question.
(3) Allow the person to speak and only ask questions.

Recording Data:

Use whatever recording device you can such as pencil and paper, audio recorder, video recorder, memory, etc., to make sure the conversations are recorded.

Materials Needed:

A conversation with someone else.

Expected Results:

(1) The conversation will have been made shorter.

(2) The conversation will be more focused on what is being said rather than who is saying it.

(3) I will have a better chance of understanding what the person is attempting to convey to me.

(4) I will get more out of the conversation in terms of what I can use that the person says or what I cannot use.

(5) I will focus more on the words that are being used.

(6) I will learn the importance of asking questions.

(7) The person I am engaged in a conversation with will value the conversation more.
