Facing Negative Arguments?

I stumbled upon Robert Greene's blog today. His last post (which is quite sometime ago) is really interesting.

I always come across people who point out why i cannot do a certain thing. In an argument, they point out small insignificant excursions that have no real impact on the main theme. It seems that they just want to find all the negatives in my thoughts and not focus on the cetral issue i am trying to get through. I did not know how to deal with this and was always on the defensive in such situations.

But, this Robert Greene blog entry gives a great insight on how such people think,work and how one can tackle them. You not only stand your ground but also gain some momentum on you opponent.
