The Power Of Telling Yourself The Reverse Story

Firstly, it helps give you a position of empathy towards the other point of view towards the other person's position. Secondly, it can actually help strengthen your own arguments and essentially anticipate and then be able to counter. pushbacks against your position against your story against your point of view. And thirdly, and maybe more importantly, you might just find in doing that that the story you've been telling yourself previously was maybe not that convincing at all and I think way too often we're very good at basically dishonest. This is the direction we want to go.
