Refrain from arguing in a group discussion. Understand that it is not a platform to quarrel and express your views in a polite way
If you agree with another participant, use phrases like "I agree with you; I support your position; I would like to add to it" to emphasize the point better
Choose to disagree in a polite way by saying, "I respect your viewpoint, but I differ with that; I hold a different opinion"
