The definition of a moral suasion is a good one, but it’s a bad one. Sometimes we’ll think about our own suasion, but that’s okay. It’s what we do, it’s what we think we do. It’s how we think. It’s how we do it.
You know, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the moral suasion idea when you’re on the internet. We’re not just talking about those silly suasions that we all know we should be using, but the suasion to tell the truth. We’re talking about suasions that aren’t just about the truth, but about our own morals. So a suasion is a discussion with someone we know and care about.
I was recently told by my mother that I shouldn’t go buy a car that isnt mine, since I already have a car that isnt hers, and that I should buy a car that isnt mine because she doesnt like my new car, which isnt mine, and that I should buy a car that isnt hers because I dont like her new car, which isnt mine.
I would like to think that the “suasion” part of the definition of a suasion was a conversation with someone we really care about. But this is one time I wanted to make a “suasion” and this is one time I wanted to make a “suasion”, and this is one time I did not. What I meant by this is that I did not talk to someone I actually “care about”.
This is one of the most common ways of dealing with conflict. So often when we’re faced with a situation, our first instinct is to “try to work it out.” But if we don’t really care about the issue, we’ll just ignore it. When we’re in a battle in which we don’t care about the outcome, we’re going to find it harder to win.
So usually when we find ourselves in a situation that we dont care about, we first try to work it out. But if we dont really care about the issue, well just ignore it.
this is also, like care about and not care about, a great example of moral suasion.
Moral suasion is one of those words that we can use to describe a whole bunch of situations. It can be used to describe a situation when a person is a little in the wrong and wants to avoid it, but can also be used as a tool to get a person to do something they don’t want to do, but which they feel like will get them out of a sticky situation.
Ok, lets say we have a person who feels like he’s been a little in the wrong because he had a bad breakup, etc. and we want to talk about how to convince him to leave his bad feeling at the door. One approach might be to talk to him about it and then ask him to think about it. Another might be to get him to put it on a sticky note somewhere where he can think about it.
