Knowing when you are wrong, and admitting it, is one of the strongest qualities in anyone. Royal or not. Sad to say, we need more of it in the world today.
WISE UP SWEETIE!
Knowing when you are wrong and ONLY admitting it if it makes tactical sense to do so … is a far stronger quality.
I occasionally find out I was wrong about something when nobody else actually knew I was wrong (or if they did then they didn’t care to mention it)… but I’m not prone to just bringing it up without reason. BUT then I’m not often wrong… mostly because I’m careful about what I assert in the first place.
i wish i had him as my butler
Hey now, he’s not Walter Dornez…
Reminds me of Batman’s butler. Alfred always had something intelligent to say.
Now I’m hearing Arvamas with Michael Caine’s voice.
Alfred was the real hero, bro. All Batman had was the karate-chop action.
Admitting when you’re wrong is a waste of time.
Knowing it is half the importance, and fixing the problem is the other half.
Once the issue is resolved… the matter of admitting to wrongdoing in the first place becomes unimportant.
When it has to do with human(or elven in this case ;p) psychology you sometimes have to admit it to your self first.
Knowing is not enough(you could know it deep down but not admit it,depending on how mature/immature you are).
Also in regards to interacting with other people sometimes part of resolving the issue is just admitting you are wrong(especially in relationships)
I used to think along the lines of what you typed but in regards to communicating with other people some things must be said.
Unless you refer to people just saying ”I m sorry,I was wrong” and thinking that would solve everything..in that case yeah
I don’t tend to bother considering the social side of things mostly… but in this case there are multiple considerations to be made.
Admitting error is a double-edged sword, especially concerning others. What we can do is measured by what we have done correctly versus what we have failed, and every failure counts against our apparent ability… and thus our concept of worth, both to ourselves and in the eyes of others. Before we resolve the notion of our error in our minds, there is always the possibility that the matter is simply incomplete and we can compensate for not having yet succeeded if we continue… but naturally this carries the potential to screw things up even further as much as it does to remedy them.
BUT when it is already known by others that we erred, they often expect confirmation of the matter to ensure awareness and as security against continuance. They will think less of us for erring at all, but further predicted damage can be mitigated this way.
Of course, a practical and non-social mind caring not for the delusion of value needn’t consider this at all.
hear hear! ^_^
SotiCoto, I’m not sure. Admitting that I am wrong is hard, but it does help make me know it, and lets those around me know I know, and we can begin to work together to fix the damage. It seems like a pretty integral step, or at least a very good one to include.
It only serves the purpose of weakening you in the eyes of others… which can only serve positive purpose if they initially believed you were stronger than you deserved… so to speak.
In other words, you’d only be catering to their insecurities.
Insecure people love it when other people show their flaws… mostly because since they can’t do better for themselves, they’d rather have everyone else dragged down to their level.
When you are a leading figure, you cannot aford to admit your mistakes, at least not in public, or you sever the image of competence you must inspire on your followers.
And insisting that you never made a mistake while the world burns around you is so much better?
After working in management for four years, I can assure you that, at least in the situations I’ve faced, admitting mistakes is a positive, not a negative. First, it shows that you have responsibility to take ownership of what you do. Second, it sets an example for those immediately below you to be honest with their own mistakes and if they see you working to overcome yours, they will be more likely to address their own. Third, not owning up to your mistakes runs the risk of looking like a coverup, which can cause all sorts of hurt to your reputation. Note that this is more for smaller group dynamics.
Also..and sorry for cheapening this whole page but looking Kiwi from this angle I can’t believe somebody said she was ugly before…
Um… am I the only one who sees that Nastajia seems to have developed the ability to phase through solid objects in the last panel? I’m not even certain what she’s phasing through…
