I’m Right You’re Wrong
Moving Beyond Black and White Reasoning
Season 1, Episode 45
In a high percentage of conflicts, the exchanges devolve into an argument about who is most correct. Inevitably, this means someone has to be labeled incorrect, and therein lies a serious problem. This podcast asks: What might happen if we agreed to be less concerned with absolute correctness and more concerned with establishing a fair-minded exchange of give and take?

- Arguing right versus wrong tends to put the relationship into an instant adversarial mode.
- Maybe you could learn something if you allowed others to have their separate opinions, freeing you up to become a better listener.
- Being right is good; being loving is even better.
