“Do you believe you’re always right? What would it mean if you’re not? Are you strong enough to acknowledge that you’re wrong sometimes? Do you cling to a rigidity that disallows you from changing your mind? Arrogance is off-putting and destined to keep you isolated. Recognizing that you could be wrong is the dawning of wisdom for many people. Humility is attractive.” ~John Amodeo, PhD, from his essay, “Why People Might Not Like You.” (Click here to read the essay.)
