 Yes, the 3 Tells: basically when we write an
essay or a speech we are doing one thing. We
are "Telling" someone something. For some
reason, (I would argue that it stems from Aristotle
but that is another lesson…) if we substantiate
our discussion or arguments with 3 supporting
statements. You know, 3 things that
could be facts or references or
arguments people tend to believe us.
When we write or speak we should
always try to keep this in mind.
