Disagree with your friends just for the hell of it and then try to actually support your contrarian opinion. This will help you learn how to actually express ideas and feelings into words and logic by putting you on the defensive for acting like a hipster dick. As long as no one gets too serious it can be a playful argument.

Practice

I know a guy who will say something retarded and no matter how wrong you prove him he'll just keep going because he thinks he's intelligent for doing debate in high school. I hate that guy.

Reading is half the battle. Get into arguments on relatively mature forums, debate politics with a level-headed person, learn to reflect upon your own ideas and look at them from someone else's perspective. Being articulate just means having a high level of confidence and familiarity in what you're talking about, or at least being able to fake it.

Do you even read philosophy or theory?

Take debating classes, it's the most surefire way to do it if you have the time and effort.

From my experience, reading, writing, watching a movie, absorbing information, trying to regurgitate information in a transformative way, etc.

It's a commitment Anon. When you see a new word, learn what it means and use it in your vernacular.

Not sure how debating comes into this. Perhaps if you're interested in sounding smarter, debate would be the way to go.

ask him if he is a duck. Then debate about that, then you tell him that he debated about something retarded. Then you let it sink in. then he realise he is a retarded duck.

I can think of a few ways.

Read philosophy and tough fiction.

Attempt the Socratic method while debating with others.

Learn to sympathize with others and focus in on where you connect with others. Essentially gain a reader's voice.

Become comfortable unpacking your thought process in front of others, through each and every humiliating step.

Experiment and challenge yourself with trying to explain strange phenomenon.

Memorize vocabulary maybe.

After all of this, learn to minimize. Learn to be brief and concise. Go back to philosophy. Learn rhetoric.

Try writing a piece of fiction and see how others react.

Should be good.

stop listening to stupid people first

This desu. I've been doing this my whole life but it's difficult gaining buddies this way, since you always come out as a pretentious faggot right away.

verbalizing your thoughts with intelligent people really helps, although to be truly articulate you should have a thorough understanding of what you are saying. a lot of people play "mind games" when they are challenged with an honest discussion. think about the intent of what you are saying and understand how it translates to recipient of the convo.

there is nothing worse than someone bullshitting their way through a conversation.
