I agree that admitting that you are wrong can have some great benefits. In college, my favorite professor always told me that the greatest scientists are all considered to be wrong in some respect. For example, Sigmund Freuds’ theories are widely disputed in the community of American psychologists. Still, his work was important in establishing psychology as a formal discipline. We can be wrong and still contribute to society by trying the best we can. Thank you for writing such a positive and inspiring article.
