The Idea Behind Style Analysis
"Man up, don't wussy out."
Don' t jump!!!
"I know pain, and this is not the answer, trust me, I've tried."
"This is Un-American, apperciate your life and liberty."
"The probability of you succeeding to eliminate yourself is low."

What key words are being used to repeat the same idea?
How is this speaker approaching the situation differently?

How is this person using pronouns?
What is this person trying to impose on the jumper?
