What's needed to be a good debater?
Be a great bullshitter. Really, that's what you need. Exploit logic, take things out of context, find loopholes, lie. People eat that shit up.
Listening skills and knowing your audience.
Yes and a athlete needs a good body.
Can you be more specific?
Bullshit baffles brains, especially when bullshit is charismatic.
So basically debate like lawyers and politicians.
I thought a simple answer fitted a simple question, but almost everything a mind can excel at can be valuable. Good memory, verbally strong, logically strong, confidence, knowing how to read people, etc.
Being able to make the other guy look like a complete idiot even though you ae the one who is full of shit.
Which will stop working for you when someone sees through your BS, confronts you with it and lays it all out to see for everybody.
ask vkevin i've heard hes a grand masterdebater
Being loud and not afraid to talk over the debated and the moderator.
At least that seemed to be the pattern for the presidential debates and who was declared the winner of each.
The ability to say 'Nuh Uh' with conviction.
Just gogle the Paul Ryan/Joe Biden debate video. Biden lays it all out perfectly.
Depends on what your goal is.
If its to persuade college professor types, then you need logic and such.
If its to persuade normal people, then you need to be able to appeal to their emotions.
i'm a mass debater
Porn. Then you can become a master.
Watch and learn
Well, are you just trying to be a good debater or are you trying to be a master debater
