“how will you convince your partner that you need a pool table in your home?”

While it is true that no one knows your partner as well as you, convincing them of your need for a pool table may require a few tried-and-true methods of creative persuading.

This paired with your understanding of what makes your partner tick.

In this post, we outline techniques and facts that will help you get the answer you want.

What Does Your Partner Respond to Best?

Different methods of conversation work well on different types of people. Try and think about the last time you won your partner to your side of a disagreement. What tipped the scale for you? 

  • Intellectual Deposition of the Facts
  • Flirty conversation filled with compliments and unspoken promises
  • An emotional appeal to their desire to please you
  • Forceful declaration of how the situation would play out
  • A plan showing how this decision would benefit everyone

Chances are you may have used a combination of several of these tactics. There is certainly no one right way to win over your partner. However, take the old saying ‘you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’ into consideration when choosing your approach.
