Transcript of Ethos Pathos Logos

Ethos Pathos Logos
People use Ethos, Pathos, and Logos almost everyday, even if they don't realize they're doing so. For example, you might find yourself trying to convince a teacher to give you no homework or to convince your parents to get you a new video game or to drive you somewhere.
To Convince your parents to get you a pet
Today I will give some examples to use ethos (credibility), pathos (emotion), logos (reason and facts) when trying to persuade your parents to get you a dog or cat.
Ethos means credibility or trustworthiness. It's used by being considerate, fair, and knowledgable.
Pathos means emotions. In order to use pathos you have to connect to how the audience is feeling.
By using these three techniques you'll have a pet to call your own before you know it!
To get a pet:
Say that they would love the pet too
Say that you will take care of him/her (be perpared with a schedule or plan)
Goal: to make them see that after a long day of work they won't have to worry about the animal and they can just relax with the pet that they love.
To get a pet:
Talk about dogs and cats that live in animal shelters
If one (or both) of your parents had a pet growing up, remind them of that time
Make them feel sympathetic for the animals in shelters
Make them want you to have the same experience they did growing up
Logos means reason. To persuade someone using logos you must have facts prepare.

Research conducted by the National Institute of Health also supports this claim -- including one study of more than 2,000 adults, which found that dog owners responsible for walking their pups are less likely to be obese than dog owners who pass the duty off to someone else or those who don't own dogs at all.
Goal: to make them see that you know what you're taking about and that their are many benefits to having a pet
