ANALYSIS. The most important part of any academic product that will make or break the substance the pieces thinking. However intimidating the opening part of this article may sound, analysis is a fun and simple process if you know how to do it properly. All it takes is any piece of evidence and your analysis that should align with the academic knowledge you are taught in class. For example:
Stance: Cigarettes are good for controlling your emotions
Evidence: 8/10 people remain can remain calm due to smoking but risk addiction
Analysis: Cigarettes are helpful in controlling your emotions due to the data regardless of the risk of becoming addicted. This shows that cigarettes can become a stop-gap measure in controlling your emotions and will be positive if indulged appropriately.
The example above might not be the best study case for analysis but what is intended to be emphasised is the possibility of manipulating data. Even when presented with evidence that cigarettes can cause addiction that could lead to further emotional problems, there are several ways to redefine that problem or discredit it which ultimately increases the appeal of cigarettes in controlling your emotions. Furthermore, another step to take is to have a stance that does not emphasise the “good” or “bad” nature of controlling your emotions. This leaves the topic entirely to your interpretation and it will be much easier to analyse any sort of evidence to your favour.
