If you have an argument with someone, how easy is it for you to actually admit when you are wrong? Is it when you have the slightest bit of doubt? Or do you diligently stand your ground until the other person gets tired?

Personally, i can find it hard to admit i am wrong, but if i have been shown evidence that i am completely out of line or wrong, then i usually just apologise and try to do damage control, whereas if i know i am right, and there is nothing to say otherwise, or everything is backing me up, as long as it actually matters, i try to see it through to the end.

I would have included a poll, but the topic is a bit too subjective.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I don't tend to argue things if I'm not confident I'm right. But when I'm wrong, I admit it.

Not admitting may make it seem like you are winning but it's childish.
Saying "oh oops okay sorry you're right" when they are right shows courage and respect.
If they are wrong, though, don't give in.
Easy as that. As someone else said, I don't get what's hard about it. It's a fight for a reason: To see who is right. Isn't it better to end it early once there is a clear winner instead of creating a bigger problem?

If they're nice about it, I'll admit my misinformation, but if they're asses about it, I'll tell them to sod off.

I have a friend, who never thinks/admits he is wrong. It makes me rage so much that I get detention for yelling at him for his stupidity sometimes. Im perfectly fine with admitting Im wrong, it's just other people that annoy me.

Depends on who it is. With my brother, I cannot show any weakness. But with my lady, I will concede when I am wrong.

Because you're quite clearly speaking from experience that "being a fucking pussy" ruins friendships.

I usually don't mind, unless the argument gets really heated.

I've admitted I was wrong both on this forum and IRL. Stubbornness is not a good quality.
#36
I have to admit I'm wrong a lot. Usually I find it pretty easy to admit and apologize. I really don't like conflict and I often avoid it and then blow up. Which is wrong...which is why I have to admit I'm wrong so much. :/
