On Being Wrong (TED video)

The miracle of your mind isn’t that you can see the world as it is. It’s that you can see the world as it isn’t. — Kathryn Schulz

  1. She does have a point… :) my view is that until our wrongness doesn’t encroach or affect other people’s liberty (e.g. polluting our environment; promoting or stakeholding human rights’ abuses; or similar ways of being ‘wrong’) then we can take it lightly. I think we do have to make sure that history or logical conclusions, common sense or other forms of ‘warning’ don’t tell us to not to do what we wish to do that may have the above mentioned impact. After cautious contemplation of such implications, I agree that it’s good to be able to say “I’m wrong” or “I may have to change my world adequately”.

  2. Enjoyed this video immensely. I can see where having to be right gets in the way of wonder and so many other “human” experiences.
