Convince; change the way an audience members think, or reinforce what they may already believe2. Actuate; move audience members to a specific behavior.a. Adoptionb. discontinuanceIn order to move our audience, we must examine where they are at, and begin from there.Persuasion is usually IncrementalContinuum of CogencyCogency is believability.~examine your audience to find where they stand on an issue~ move them from that pointPeople are often offended if we ask them to leap too far.Continuum of Cogency-Absolute truth, -certainty, -probability, -plausible, -possible, -ounce of truthDiscussion- Is there absolute Truth?Ask the question…What will it take to convince my audience to adopt my opinion? Change their behavior?What do I have to prove for them to believe what I say is true?Answering these questions builds the strength of your argumentQueen of EnglandHow is the Continuum of Cogency like Social Judgment Theory?~both are incrementalStrongly agree= anchorAgree= latitude of acceptanceDon’t care= latitude of noncommitmentStrongly disagree= latitude of rejectionTips:~set realistic, modest goals.~Don’t feel bad if not everyone in the audience walks away believing as you do- it is a gradual process.~ “Social Judgment Theory suggests that the best chance of changing the audience attitudes would come by presenting an argument based on a position that fell somewhere within the listener’s latitude of non-commitment- even if it isn’t the position that you ultimately wanted them to accept” (p. 420).But don’t be afraid to assert your opinion.We all have values and make judgments that we believe are right and better than others.It is ok to tell people what to believe, if you offer good, honest reasons.Artistic Appeals; building your persuasive powerFrom Aristotle1.

(some times called Charisma or Dynamism- enthusiasm)Do you have the audience’s best interest at heart?Pathos; how do you use emotion to persuade?We are emotional beings, and we persuade through using emotion.What emotions do you want the audience to feel?What emotions will you convey as a speaker? ~Use Emotion Appropriately~Logos; logical argumentGive your audience good reasons to believe you.Walk them through the reasoning process. Don’t underestimate the power of a conversion story.- How did you come to hold the opinion your self?Strengthening your argument.Present both sides of any argument, and why your side is better. -this makes you seem more knowledgeable and honest-It shows that your argument can withstand pressure-You never know your own side of a debate, until you truly understand the opposition.Review of StructureSet a clear purposeDescribe the problem-what is the nature of the problem?- how does it affect your audience?Describe the solutionDescribe the desired audience response-how easy is it to do?-what are the rewards?Monroe’s Motivated Sequence~variation on the problem-solution pattern (page 356)I.
