Argumentum ad Verecundiam (argument from authority) fallacy: an appeal to the testimony of an authority outside the authority's special field of expertise.

The argument of an irrelevant appeal to authority is shown to be fallacious but sometimes persuasive.

Argumentum ad verecundiam Wikipedia-logo-en.png For more information, see the Wikipedia article: Argumentum ad verecundiam An argument from authority is one in which a proposition is claimed to be true because an esteemed person says it is true. It is a fallacy in that it relies on the person's fame or reputation, rather than on logical arguments or empirical evidence.

“Types of argument: argument from authority ”

This article is the latest in a series that considers the different kinds of arguments that you may use in your doctoral thesis.

“Backing up your argument with unnamed sources, rumored facts and hearsay only backs your view and your professional reputation into a corner.   Argue the facts with validity, authority and substantial proof or walk away. It is ok to say you don’t know and it can serve your reputation better than sharing what you can’t prove.”  #weiswords

Yeah well some of my friends don't apologize and then we get in arguments <<< Well, friends have arguements.

Arguments from authority carry little weight—“authorities”have made mistakes in the past. They will do so again in the future. Perhaps a better way to say it is that there are no authorities; at most, there are experts. Always ask whether the hypothesis can be falsified. Propositions that are untestable, unfalsifiable are not worth much. (Popper)

While it’s not fair to lump 1 into an entire category, (whites, blacks, cops, etc) I agree w/ respecting the authority bc God instructs us to DO that.  And, lump we do, too. Every situation & people involved under varying circumstances... presents a different outcome. Whether wrong or right, that much is fact.

As an authority figure, don't expect an INTJ to respect what you say just because you say it. - INTJs bow only to one authority: rationality.

INTJ respect only rational thinking and competence. This is why I will argue with the police, our priest, the school principle, and anyone else who is wrong until they see the truth. This is also why I will change my mind if someone has a valid argument.

Fun facts about your sign here

I'll never respect anyones argument without a practical explanation. That would equal blind acceptance, and ignorance.
