It depends. I might apologize, but if I don't care for my fellow debater I'll throw in a quick agreement to save my pride.

yeah never been afraid to admit I did something wrong

whereas other people try to fabricate things or hide it... just makes it worse imo... all that just to save your pride lol.

Depends. If I'm wrong while arguing with a sibling, then I'm always right.

With other people, I'll usually admit I'm wrong if I really am. I don't mind admitting that I was mistaking.

Quite. Pride is meaningless. I'd rather have a firm grasp of meaning.

I admit I'm wrong all the time even when I'm right.

I've only actually be wrong three times in my life. I don't' mean wrong like so many people think of it I mean wrong like the mistake nearly cost people their lives. I've admitted it after the fact and took my punishment as I did deserve it.

I wish people like you would stop mistaking Pride for Vanity. Pride let's craftsman create beautiful and sturdy buildings, Pride keeps the wounded soldier moving when his wounds are telling him to stop, Pride in your cause lets you fight for it. Vanity causes the negative aspects you mistakenly associated with Pride .

I don't mind being wrong.
I look at it this way. If I'm wrong, I still win 'cuz I've either learned or been enlightened about something.

True, but often times pride leads to vanity when you become so full of yourself.

Perhaps but just because Pride can become Vanity does not mean Pride is a sin in and of itself . It is a noble virtue if properly harnessed.

Perhaps but when one is proud of their work it shows. They go that extra mile and the sweat, blood,and tears show in the quality of their work .It shows in the enjoyment they display as they are working .

Now to my ears it sounds like your talking about passion. Why else would they go to such lengths to make that extra work?At least for me,pride is much weaker driving force than passion.
