Do you learn from your mistakes made or do you continue to repeat them?

I was chatting with my girl friend just now about some things and she said lesson learned, not gonna repeat it again. But I swear she's gonna repeat it again because it's already the third time she's saying this. 😂

Anyways, that got me wondering.. do you people actually learned from the mistakes which you've made? Or do you actually keep repeating it until, well.. y'know finally got the lesson into your head? 🙈

  • Sometimes I keep making the same mistakes even if i know in my head it isn't good for me. But those have became an ingrained habit and more so, sometimes I am not emotionally convinced of where I want to be, meaning, I am not motivated enough.

    Because when I have the motivation, it is very unlikely that I will let myself repeat the same mistake again.

  • Another good thing nature has granted me is with the ability not just to learn from experience but also realize all about it. In addition to which I've been granted the ability to learn not just from my own experience but that of others too.

    I may repeat the action but not the mistake :D ;)

  • I do my best to learn from my mistakes, especially in games, music, school, or social related things.

    If I make a mistake in a game, I try to find the mistake and work on it. Same with music. If I know I have trouble with essays at school, I'll make an appointment with the lecturer so I can gain assistance. If I know I talk about weird topics that people don't like, I'll stop talking about such topics.

  • Depends on the significance of the mistake. Trivial mistakes may take a while to sink in. Mistakes with brutal and immediate consequences tend to penetrate my thick skull quicker. In many cases, though, the distance in time between a making mistake and discovering it as such limits the learning value.

  • I try to, but it can be hard breaking habits. However as the saying goes, the definition of insanity is attempting the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. (I know, I probably butchered it but I didn't feel like looking it up, ok?)

  • Yes, for sure, but it's case by case basis. Some things I have learned from and have change/am working on changing... other things, I keep repeating history. It's interesting how we may have really good self-control over one thing and a complete lack of it for something else.

    One of the mistakes I actually continue to make is browsing the web uselessly when I need to be productive and studying hard. Like right now -_- smh

  • I repeat my mistakes a few times even though I know it's a mistake while doing it. I guess I'm a slow learner? But eventually I stop.

  • I've never learned anything from my mistakes other than it was a stupid idea and to try it in an alternative way the next time. For example, one time, i drank on an empty stomach. I was sick for two days. Lesson to be learned, you can still drink, just be sure to eat too.

  • I think I repeat my mistakes a lot. I do learn from some of them, but many times I just fall back into the same patter I was in before. I get uber mad at myself for it. :(

  • Well I think for a period of time you don't make the mistake again but sometimes it happens again. like you forgot what it as like to make the mistake. I've done that before. To be honest i think it depends on the situation because sometimes I wouldn't make the same mistake twice other times I go ahead a do it again. For example When break ups happen sometimes people go back with the person they broke up with like things have changed when most of the time that is not the case.
