No One Likes It When They Are Wrong

Being In The Wrong

The worst action you could take when trying to change someone’s mind is to shout louder.

The next worst action is to point out their mistake, where they fall short and explain the 1,001 reasons why they’re wrong.

It’s more effective to tell a new story, one where they can be right, one that makes them feel like they can make a new decision that leads to a new narrative that leads to a new feeling of being right.

This is the beauty of watching any UN Debate. It’s not a matter of who is right and who is wrong, it’s a matter of who tells the narrative that leads another to make a different decision.

It’s less about who is less wrong and more about how to be more right.
