In Edward's book 'I am right, you are right", he says something like logic rarely sways a person's view, but perception (the way we look at things) does. He also talks about rock logic and water logic.
I'm not clear what the difference between logic and perception is, in regard to giving people an opportunity to change their view.
For an example, say I worked in a building where people were allowed to smoke. I didn't consider this acceptable, and wanted to educate the powers that be about the harm and discomfort of involuntary smoking and maximise the possibility that they would ban smoking in the workplace.
I realise you cannot control other people. Nonetheless, in this example, I think its appropriate to lobby for change.
What is the difference between using logic to present my point of view or using perceptions to present my point of view?
What are other people's understanding?
