One of the best ways to win an argument convincingly is to have a story to tell that illustrates your point. Stories create context by bringing to mind pictures and involving concrete details that are easier to grasp than abstract thoughts. Usually the older the story the better, because it sets precedent and has the weight of history behind it.
Not the sort of stuff that turns up on Twitter or on the tip of the tongue of your average hard working, over tired, distracted modern soul. We can say safely that having the right story on hand at the right moment is a fading art.
Don’t concede the discussion to your friends just yet, though!
Insight is an app that has just the answer for the kind of predicaments mentioned above. It’s a reading app, or story generator, that comes up with the perfect story to match the information you provide. It correlates the problem you wish to solve to the right example through its retrieval system. Read through a quick summary and you’re ready to finish explaining/elucidating like… a debate champion, riveting dinner party guest, or wise ole scholar.
Of course, you can just use Insight to read stories for the pleasure of reading stories. That’s perfectly acceptable too. Our culture needs you to – we have so many great stories, full of wisdom and smart example. It’s a pity to let them go by the wayside.
Insight keeps such tales (and their insights, naturally) alive. Stories range from Greek mythology to Bible stories to Norse mythology and Buddhist stories.
Writers especially should appreciate this tool, as it gives them a powerful and quick reference to demonstrate that they know what the hell they’re writing about. Whenever a passage feels thin, a good story always comes in handy. It both aids the reader and stimulates the writer. Drawing from other sources clarifies points or can add layers of meaning. Plus, it makes us sound learned, and who doesn’t like sounding a little smarter than he really is?
What’s more, it’s fun to think! It’s exciting to connect both our present day experience and thought to the past.
So, wanna enliven your writing and discussions with great stories? Want the perfect story to fit any moment, just like a particular brilliant butler of a certain super hero (have another look at the webpage if this reference is unclear)? Stay tuned for the arrival of the Insight app here, coming soon to both Android and Apple device.
