Arguing and Changing One's Mind

A person can argue strenously against a particular idea. The person may even be able to persuade other people to his point of view. Later, when alone, the person might well change his mind and come to agree. The person may never explicitly say that he's changed his mind. He may simply act on it as if he thought this way all along. Children, being people, do this too.

Implication
Don't assume that a person who disagrees with you won't come to agree with you later.

This may seem obvious to lots of people, but it's something that wasn't always obvious to me and that I frequently forget.
