One of my peers said, "For future advice, if you're put in a group, you should listen to the others, I just wanted to tell you."
While my initial reaction inside my head was who the hell are you to be saying that, I politely said, "I don't think we all know each other well enough for us to be saying that. If you said I've behaved a particular way in this group that's fair, but I don't think it's right to say I'm like that in every group setting."
And after they all conversed I ended with, "I think we all learned something from this."

I don't think it was a very good way to handle the situation.
You were defensive and confrontational. The response would have created tension, decreased cooperation, and ultimately diminished the effectiveness of the group.
I think you should have thanked her for the advice and said you would take it into consideration- an offhanded dismissal that would defuse the situation and allow everyone to quickly get back on track.0
