If someone doesn’t get it, repeating yourself slower and louder doesn’t help

You have to find out what they want, what would count as evidence, what would count as a decent process.

And there’s a difference between being given authority/responsibility to use a tool to facilitate a discussion and being given unchallengeable emergency-dictatorness to ram through what you want, without taking due note of what does and doesn’t work for individuals.

And when you are a facilitator, it’s simply good manners not to be the first person diving in every time the floor is “opened” for discussion.
