How to persuade me

Most of my conversations are at least slightly adversarial, in that the person I'm talking to wants to persuade me of something I don't currently believe.

If we're in such a conversation, and you want to persuade me, here are some things you can do which will improve your chances.

Some of these are general tips for thinking well, but others are just things that I find especially persuasive due to my own biases. Either way, if you do these things, I will find your argument more persuasive regardless of how true it is.
