    Re: Can You Admit when you are wrong

    Iíve got no problem admitting Iím wrong; in fact, Iím probably wrong right now

    Seriously though, I'm a doormat. Iíve got self-esteem as soft as talc in a society where the average moron's esteem is as durable as glass.

    I was about to say that I can admit I was wrong, but as I thought about it more I realized I was wrong.

    Re: Can You Admit when you are wrong

    When I see my own error completely, or feel that I have been a complete idioit, I do admit it.
    Otherwise, I'm quite stubborn

    I do all the time. At least every-time i actually am wrong.

    Unless when someone isn't recognizing the some possible truth in what i am saying( depends on how wrong i am)... then i still consider myself right

    Yeah, I can admit when I'm wrong. I've been wrong plenty of times in my life.

    If, on the odd chance it ever happens, I will let you know.

    Someone says... you decided (so-and-so)... and I reply... "I was wrong".
    And (the next assault...)... and I reply, "I made a mistake".
    (The barrage continues)... and I reply, "hey, I changed my mind"... "the original was a poor choice, got info that proved there was a better way... so I learned the hard way from that one."

    Like my youth...

    You're a Lib? I was, but that was a wrong decision".
    How did that happen? "Well, I was young and made a mistake... youthful ignorance, lacking knowledge etc."
    And your were a Lib how long? "Too long, but once I got the rest of the story, I changed my mind, and am now a Conservative."


    If you ever work in a former East Bloc, Commi country, you will have had vast experience with this mentality. It's a shame, and runs very deep.

    Bravo! That's one thing I'm tired of in American politics -- the rigid partisanship and labeling. Labels like liberal or conservative aren't very useful. Many people will automatically judge the liberal or conservative stamp on an issue without evaluating its merits.
