One of the best times to use the power of silence is during an argument is to stay silent. The ego will be trying to force its way out of you and finish the argument but you are the controller, not the ego. When someone is shouting at you, looking for an argument or just picking on you can literally take all the power away from them and keep all your energy by simply looking at them and saying absolutely nothing. This is extremely difficult to do but very powerful.

Silence solves many problems but still there are times that argument is required to clear the atmosphere of misunderstanding

Some time it is better as unnecessary arguments create tension and unplesantness so it should be least.

Argument to stress one's point of view is essential.
But no use in having a prolonged hair splitting argument.
In such a case,
Silence Is Golden.

Because If I compete with a tough competetor like you I may lose and with a weak competetor , I may win but in both cases it's ultimately a lose lose situation . You can't win an argument, because if you lose it, you lose it! --And if you WIN it, you LOSE it!

Why?

You'll feel fine, smug and satisfied. But what about him? You'll have made him feel inferior. You'have hurt his pride. He may resent your triumph, and

Yes, often when we know that itz like rain on rocky terrain. It would never absorb water, just run-off in to drain.
