Wrong or right? When do you learn?

I read an blog post over at The IT Risk Manager blog titled I’d rather be wrong than be right tonight. The main idea is that you will not learn (much) from a discussion if you are right. But if you are proven wrong, you have learned something new.

I think I could learn something from it. I always try to highlight all angles when I’m in a discussion, and I try to understand and tolerate other views than my own. It might be that I’m a bit to close to “Strong opinion, strongly held”, so I’m planing on keeping this blog post in the back of my mind in the future.
