Obsession with being right.

Everyone is so obsessed with being right. Doesn't matter wether its in the real life or internet. Everyone have their opinion whats right and wrong, but who really is right? It shows you are objective if you admit your wrong. Why? Because atleast you were able to look things from point of view than your own. Being wrong doesnt mean your stupid, but it shows you can look things from other peoples point of view. Instead of  being so fanatically right you should look things from other people point of view and maybe try to understand them. Admiting that you were wrong shows you truly can put your self in other persons pants.

I always admit when I'm wrong, but NO ONE admits to me that I'm right

NHM said...

Many people just don't like to be not right, neither I am, but sometimes there's no way and you got to be wrong

biboa said...

always try to admit when you were not right... it's the righteous way!

Clint Mullins said...

I am never 100% affirmative on something unless it is a known fact. Its a good way to never get that feeling of stubbornness.

Reginaldus said...

But another persons' viewpoint is no more right or wrong than your own... it's just an opinion.

I always try very hard to make it clear when I'm not sure if I'm 100% right and am always willing to accept other people's knowledge if it's better than mine. Unfortunately a lot of my friends are the exact opposite and refuse to believe anything that goes against what they think.

I find that usually everyone says they are open to new things but when things come to personal level they are stubborn.

Just Me said...

i like being right, but i agree, it cant be obsessive especially if the other person doesnt know what they are talking about

I've taught myself to look at things objectively. If I'm wrong I'll admit it. You don't see that often enough

Amalek said...

To be clear, this is a western phenomenon.
In eastern cultures it shows humility to apologize or admit being wrong.

Fizzyface said...

I made a similar post the other day, take a read.
It's very true, I hate this with a passion.

WanderingWriter said...

Very true. I used to be a complete ass in this regard, arguing my point until I just exhausted myself. I've come to the point where I just don't care if others agree with my point of view.

Potholderz said...

I agree, you can learn a lot by seeing thing from a different point of view.

I agree with you. Nice post!

Dokho said...

Until someone proves I'm wrong I'm always right, isn't that how it works for everyone ?

chupy said...

i am obseesed with that kind of things you mention

The Suit said...

Hmm. I think I remember being wrong once in the 80's, but maybe I was just on a lot of coke and thought I was wrong. Who knows?

Fortune said...

Found a lot of the time it is a show of narcissism in a person if they habitually cannot admit a wrong. Failure to show responsibility for one's actions is a sign of several anti-social personality disorders.
