You don’t want to win the argument. You want to get your way.

From an article by Hazel Cills titled How to Win Any Argument

“don’t try to outscore your opponent,” … “Try instead to get your way.”

“Your goal isn’t to make them feel mad, dumb, or smart—it’s to help them absorb and understand your point. Keep your eye on that ball.”
