Logical fallacies stink!

In a 2020 world full or irrationality, logical fallacies, untruths, and just downright lies are being used left, right, centre and being passed off as the truth and logic.

The problem is that logical fallacies, because of how common they are, can be a challenge to recognize and interpret. This is especially true in the heat of battle, or during an uncomfortable conversation with someone when the stakes are high.

Some logical fallacies are even techniques that can be favourably employed by crafty and manipulative people looking to generate a certain response or emotion from his victims.

The purpose of this episode is to help you identify and defuse one particularly sneaky logical fallacy from your life - the argument from intimidation.

The argument from intimidation is literally everywhere, a prevalent recent example is the Chris Kresser, James Wilks debate on the Joe Rogan Podcast, where Wilks used it against an unsuspecting and unprepared Chris Kresser.

Here Is What We Covered

  • The definition of the Argument From Intimidation and all of the ways its modern users push it on us.
  • How to recognize if someone is using this technique against you.
  • How to not be affected by this logical fallacy.
  • The psychological mechanisms this technique uses and to begin to bulletproof yourself.
