Do You Always Need to be Right?

Delusions of infallibility on subjects big and small are what lead to all of the world’s big disagreements. Let go of the need to be right, and your career could benefit. Peter Vajda discusses this idea in an article at Management-Issues. The problem is usually a case of ego. We fear that if we admit to being wrong, or if we even entertain the idea of being wrong, that it will diminish us as people. When we separate our self-image from a discussion and strictly consider the real merits of an argument, we are more likely to find the truth, or at least find common ground with the other person. Often, two people being able to understand each other’s conflicting perspective is more important than one person being right.
