Now correct me if I'm wrong...
I can often be a little dense at times, in fact at one point I'm fairly certain me correcting my girlfriend when she would be wrong cost me that relationship. Yet it is not as if I would gloatingly rub her nose in the mistake and pride myself on some form of superiority. I naturally assumed people who had a mistaken belief about something would want to know accurate information.
But this is hardly the case is it? I at times have difficulty accepting evidence that may disprove certain beliefs. I will spend days searching for counter-evidence in order to disprove what I've learned. However I do not just dismiss it nor do I dislike the fact that I learned what was actually true.
I think of the term "Know it all" and while I do not claim to know it all, quite the contrary I feel as if my knowledge is woefully inadequate, I get the impression this is what people think when they are corrected.
So... Am I wrong? And even if I am will you be able to convince me?
