convince和 persuade是同義字, 簡單的說 convince和 persuade 的差別是:

通常 convince 是要以證據,事實真相,或者是論點,理由來使別人信服.

"one persuades someone to act but convinces someone of the truth of a statement or proposition" -

"To convince is to persuade by the use of argument or evidence."



The teenager is convinced she can win. The boy was persuaded to run the 10-yard dash.

"Convinced" is for changing mental beliefs.

Persuasion is change of belief followed by action. The American Heritage Book of English Usage agrees with these definitions.


Be convinced that these ideas are true and persuade your fellow writers, thinkers, and speakers of their correctness.
