Dear Poll: Do You Admit When You're Wrong?

Dear Poll: Do You Admit When You're Wrong?

Even if you're not typically stubborn, sometimes admitting when you're wrong can be difficult. This becomes even harder if you were particularly adamant about being right — something I tend to do myself! When I'm wrong though, I'm wrong, and I usually have no problem saying so, but what about you? Do you have a hard time admitting when you're incorrect?

This is particularly difficult when it comes to arguments with my boyfriend, but I find that admitting my wrongdoing works out 9 times out of 10 and people are more likely to forgive.

austerity, I can relate to that. I'm quite stubborn in a relationship. With my guy, I would argue till both of us get tired.

I can be pretty bad about admitting when I'm wrong. But I'm working on it and trying to get better.

when I was little, my mum's response to an apology was "yes, and you should be sorry" which made it very difficult for me to apologize for years. I still find it hard, as I hate more than anything having it thrown in my face, but if I'm wrong, I'm big enough to admit it.

I'm not very pushy when I think I'm right and I'm also very hesitant to say I'm right when I'm not sure, so I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong.

I'm actually pretty good at admitting when I'm wrong. However, this characteristics also makes me go CRAZY when other people can't admit when they're wrong. And let's face it-- in most cases, both people involved are at fault.

Yes I do. It's always better than being in denial. But I never like being wrong either :-)

Sometimes when things have gone far I'll still say I'm right, but when things go too far I just admit I'm wrong. I'm usually the first one to say I'm wrong.

I agree with VanillaJ. I hate admitting that I'm wrong but being stubborn about it isn't fair to the other person.

And I'm a Leo too. Has nothing to do with my personality. In fact, I read my horoscope to laugh because it's wrong 99% of the time.

If I'm convinced I'm wrong I apologize big time. When I'm right, I know I am and there's nothing anyone could say or do to deter me.

and for business I am always wrong, repeat always. I bite my tongue and praise the rich. Hell I need them more than they need me. I have bills to pay.

If I am wrong I will admit it, BUT if the person who is confronting me wants more of a reaction than I am giving, or is enjoying catching me being wrong? then i will retract my apology and they can talk to my back.
