    I recognize them . . . and might change in consideration of them.

    But honestly - I don't often admit to them so much as I just am aware of them and move on.

    Re: Can you admit to a mistake?

    I admit to mistakes or being wrong on a regular basis.... just don't tell my husband that

    Anyone who admits to making mistakes is admitting they still have something to learn. As long as you continue to learn you will continue to grow.

    p.s. Strawberry rhubarb pie is delicious.

    Seems I can. I just bitched out Ikari for something that was the result of my own misunderstanding and apologized, twice even.

    I try to. Not always easy though.

    If you give a good enough argument I'll come across to your side on specific issues. Tax cuts for example.

    I admit to mistakes, when they happen, but that's rare.

    My favorite quotation on this subject is from the title of Charles Barkley's book.

    " I May Be Wrong, But I Doubt It"

    I have only been wrong once in my life. I thought I was wrong but I wasn't

    People thought the Dos Equis guy was wrong once. The aftermath was the Black Plague.
