Well do you?

Personally, sometimes I accept I've made a mistake in work or I'm still learning something and I don't feel bad about it. The worst is when you are confident about choice you've made and then it turns out to be wrong.

Are you the sort of person that can easily accept that and not feel disheartened?

or

Do you feel a bit of Guilt / Embarrassment or just in general a knock back of your own confidence?

My confidence? No. The only time I'll worry about such matters are decisions with weight. It's not a confidence hit so much as 'fuck don't want to lose job' or 'fuck I don't want to disappoint' thought.

My ego? Maybe. It depends.

In lighter matters, and especially discussions, I prefer being wrong.

I'll accept it no problem, but I'm rarely wrong.

I just laugh it off.
I try to be an ego-less man.

Yep. Even more so when it's something I should know, and something I'm proud to know. When I'm wrong my confidence doesn't take it well. I get back up eventually, but it still knocks me back a bit.

I feel no ways about it
I would like to learn

I cannot be wrong, I will not be wrong, I am not wrong. I am right.

Honestly if this were to happen ever I'd probably feel a raw emotion of anger at whoever pointed out I was wrong and I'd do everything in my power to create situations in which they were seen as wrong and I was seen as right.

I take stances based on what I know. If I am given new information and it seems to be solid, cool, I'll remember it and maybe change my stance. It's not really personal unless people are giving me information through personal attacks, but I'm not likely to listen if that's the case.

Usually, I think I have fairly good reasons to go one side or another in controversial topics. These are usually more opinionated and a good argument lets me see from the other side's perspective. I don't have too many very strong opinions, so I'm able to flip-flop on a lot of issues if I see both sides.
