The rules I apply when possible:

1) Do not object to someone else's argument until I'm confident that I can re-state in, using my own words, in a way that they would accept.

2) Be able to understand my opponent's argument in such a way that I could teach it (I often teach quite charitably arguments I ultimately reject as unsound).

Also, I re-read Clifford recently for teaching and he says a number of things along the lines of Descartes. For example, he talks about what is the difficulty of leaving echo chambers, the pleasure of having our beliefs confirmed, etc.
