A rumour travels that we have a penchant for not admitting mistakes (on average compared to other types I suppose).
I don't believe this to be true for me, however, since the rumour could infer this 'non-admission' is detrimental for other types and serves only to safe-guard the need to be 'right'.
1. Do they mean the 'need to be right' on a social level, or a logical level?
2. Does the rumour hold true in your inexperienced years?
3. What do you think about 'non-admission of mistakes' now?
4. What about the concealment of mistakes?
1. I don't feel the need to be 'right' on a social level, I feel the need to be perceived as having the right mentality.
2. True in the sense I would bring up a challenge, but never saw it as an affront if proven wrong, as the point was to learn something.. right?
3.a)If a mistake is not-admitted, then you can't pursue better methods with others.
b)I understand that some mistakes, if communicated to a crowd non-understanding of the sensitivities, that damage can be blown out of proportion and be more detrimental than sharing it only through accountable channels.
c)Power-play, in 'war'. The enemy will not care about overcoming mistakes for better solutions with you.
4. See 3c
Overall, I believe this question to be more a matter of whether someone chooses to engage in intellectual dishonesty. To which a different environment or subject would lead to correlations with different types; not something inherent within the type. - I bring no evidence for this assertion though :P -
