Argument Revision/Consultation

30


30 simbi per session - Virtual OK

As the old adage goes: Don't raise your voice, improve your argument.

Have you recently been sucked into a text fight? If you and I are anything alike, we sometimes get heated about important subjects that other people may not take as seriously. I've been in many-a Facebook status arguments, and even more verbal arguments.

It's taken me 25 years to learn the art of a rebuttal. I ask myself some very simple questions:

1) What's the result I'm going for?
2) Do I want to keep this person in my life?
3) Is it worth it?

Depending on 1 & 3, I set up my argument for success. Maybe you need to write your parents a long-awaited letter about something. Maybe you have something on your chest you need to express! Or, maybe, someone was a jerk to you and you don't know how to best optimize your words to communicate with them in a proactive way (Read: they hurt your feelings and you're not sure you can respond back without trying to hurt them in return).

Whatever the issue, I'll help you draft a counter-argument/rebuttal depending on your needs, and guide you through the argument for whatever result you want (whether that be cutting ties with integrity, or patching things up while still communicating your needs).

Training & Qualifications


I have a bachelor's degree in Philosophy (ethics) and Psychology (social), so I've got a good idea of how it's ethical to interact with someone, and how the social contract ties into expected behaviors. In other words, I'm decent at predicting how a conversation will go depending on how I word my part in it.

Other qualifications include Ally training (learning how to counsel and interact with others while taking into consideration things like mental illness, race, and other intersections).

Finally--My mother and I have been arguing for nearly my entire life, and now I'm finally able to shut down her abusive interactions with me before they hurt me. Together, you and I can be the change you want to see in your life.

Availability & Preferences


If it's online then I'm open 99% of the time (except for Thursdays from 6-8:15pm). Otherwise, I'm not free between 4 & 6pm on weekdays, but am free all the rest of the time, including weekends. We can meet at a neutral location and you can brief me of the situation and we'll get to drafting!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

This was my second time doing a Korean language lesson swap with Everett, but the first time was over Skype and this time was in person. It's super g...reat that he's able to be flexible about how the lessons take place, and I think we both got a lot out of the experience! :)show more

Wonderful experience!
Steph received unit of IKEA Furniture Assembly from Everett
Apr 26, 2016
Everett put together my Malm-style desk and my Kullen style dresser when I was too frustrated to do it myself. He says he likes putting together IKEA ...furniture, and because he did both pieces in on continuous session, I'm definitely inclined to believe him. So grateful to have a desk in my room now. Will definitely be calling on him to put future pieces together. 10/10show more

About Everett Lundquist

I run a full time doggy day-care and overnight boarding service. I'm also trying to hack it as a comic book artist. It's rough, sometimes, but I really enjoy getting up in the morning. I have bache...lor's degrees in both Psychology and Philosophy, and an almost-degree in computer science. What I really need is help with are things like nutrition and fitness, losing weight, and carpet cleaning. I'd love to learn Korean--I'm in Korean 3 right now at my local college, but I'd love a practice partner. Update as of 07/19: I'm sorry to everyone as of late, I've been awful about responding to deals/completing deals. The fact of the matter is my mother died on the 4th of July and the stress from everything had me in bed with a migraine for nearly two weeks. I'm finally beginning to feel better, so I'll be reaching out to you all again soon. Thank you so much for your patience.show more
