You should not be reluctant to accept that the views of others may have as much or more weight as your own. At the least, a key task in any debate, and in all walks of life, is to understand things from your 'opponent's' point of view.

You could say in order to have a ''debate'' in the first place, both debators have to understand each others point of view.
As for the weighting of opinions...in a debate you should try to be open-minded yet not constantly wavering in your points, otherwise you come across and someone who's indecisive or has a weak argument.
