The head up arse and brain in neutral factor of working with numerical targets as an effective management measure…
There is a technique which some people seem to think is capable of winning any argument – even when faced with a compelling and well-evidenced line of reasoning. To fully appreciate the unparalleled awesomeness of this tactic, you have to see it in action; therefore I’ve chosen a pretty defensible statement (i.e. ‘Pigs can’t fly’) to demonstrate how it works.
Let the fun begin…
Powerful tactic, isn’t it? Why waste time relying upon actual evidence to build an argument, when you can just finish a debate by stuffing your fists in your ears, or closing your eyes until the horrible monster has gone away?
Having experienced a few of these types of interactions of late whilst debating the effect of numerical targets, I thought it would be worth laying out a few key points about my stance, and invite debate (unless you’re considering reverting to Stick Person Mode, as above).
