How it feels to be wrong

When I first watched this TED Talk, “On being wrong,” given by Kathryn Schulz, it was like an epiphany. Schulz explains here how we react to people who disagree with us, and moreover how we react to finding out that our own assumptions, opinions, and beliefs are just plain wrong. The ideas she expresses here, if understood by more people, could have major implications for social justice, diversity, equality and tolerance around the world. How does it feel to be wrong, she asks. The same as it does to be right . . .
