So, in tonight’s session, one of our fellas from Thailand asked:
@hipea How different between persuade and convince ?
While both involves talking and some might use them interchangeably, there’s a huge difference.
- You convince someone to get them to believe in the truth/idea of something. You persuade someone to get them to do something, often through reasoning or argument.
- Persuasion leads to action, while convincement stays in the mind of those convinced.
I might persuade you to get a haircut, but I convinced you that it was a good idea.
I hope the explanation above was clear enough, fellas. Otherwise, feel free to ask in the comment box below.
