When you're wrong, do you admit it?

can be anything from a simple debate where you fabricated a statistic and got fact checked... to being caught cheating by your girlfriend.

do you own up to your mistakes? do you acknowledge your oversights?

  • OF COURSE, man, immediately! I did that like 2 days ago, here. I doubt you care to see it, and I don't care to show it I was pretty well in the wrong w/a BS post that I honestly don't remember posting to an amazing gal! But I manned up and publicly apologized while punching of the little A-holes around me all the while! It's somewhere in my 1 to 2 day old history (and I don't post much) I did it, and so I take it like a man! Pretty simple!

  • Usually, yeah. Actually, I probably apologize more than I should. I'd rather clear the air and have things peaceful.

  • It depends. Usually yes, but other times I can be so caught up in myself that it takes the other person to explain their perspective in order for me to take a second look at myself and realize where I'm in the wrong. When that happens a really good discussion arises and solves whatever the issue is, but on average I would admit beforehand.

  • I usually always do, but I get annoyed when I know I'm correct and people start claiming I'm wrong just for the sake of arguing.

  • It depends about the topic and who the person is.
    If I'm arguing with my boyfriend and I am wrong, yes I will admit it and apologize.
    If its something stupid with my siblings or something, nah. hahahah

  • If the person pisses me off to greatly heights then I don't want to admit it. Since I don't want to give them any kind of satisfaction about it.

    Now with people who don't piss me off, I will admit when I'm wrong.

  • Well sometimes I do. One time there was a song playing on the radio and I was like this is that song called blah blah then my cousin was like no it's called something else then I was like lets shazam it, then a minute later I found out I was wrong so I told her the song didn't come up on Shazam.

  • I often admit that I'm wrong / incorrect. I don't see where it could be nearly as bad as allowing pride to hide a lie or lack of truth

  • Yes, I do. I'm not perfect. I try to be honest with people and especially with myself as much as possible. I used to be dishonest, but I didn't like living that way. That's why I changed my ways. Now, it just makes me sick to my stomach - literally - if I'm tempted to be dishonest.

  • I feel unusually guilty about the things I do wrong, so I have to apologize or admit I'm wrong, even if the other party doesn't care anymore.

    That's truer for people I don't know too well, though. With family and close friends, I have a harder time admitting I'm wrong.

  • Sometimes. If think someone was really hurt, I try to sum up the courage. Sometimes I one has to let some things fly because it is not worth the time, or one has to "let it go" sometimes, as that can be just as tough as admitting a mistake.
