Sorry to say, but NOT everyone in real-life IS open-minded. You do have to deal with people whose minds are already set on a particular course of action, and no amount of reasoning will ever be enough to persuade them to do otherwise. You'd have to be a god in order to change their minds and hearts. Same thing withan NPC: they will only be persuaded if it's scripted in their character; otherwise, you're just trying to play at being Jesus and it's not going to do diddly.
