Most people don't want to admit when they make mistake. What are the common response when confronted? Instead of simply saying, "My apology", "My mistake", "I was wrong", "You are right", "I'm sorry"..
(1) They lie
(2) They make excuses
(3) They are defensive
(4) They strike back
(5) They criticize others
(6) They blame others
What else will you add in the list? It is hard to admit when you are wrong because of pride, ego, reputation, self-image, self-respect. It hurts your pride when you admit you are wrong. It threatens your reputation. Yet, admitting your mistake sets you free from the prison of pride.
