There are many times when in an argument we turn out to be right and we have an edge over the other person. Those are the times when we make sure to humiliate the other person for being wrong and we make sure to teach them a lesson for the same. That said, we also have an experience of being on the wrong side and have been taught the same lesson by others.
I have been on both side of the coin, I loved being right and have humiliated the other person for being wrong just to feed my ego.Also, I have been wrong many times and I hated it.
There is one more thing however, that we can do, which is let the other person save face. This we seldom do and it is little difficult also because we are not programmed that way. Our ego doesn’t allow this.
However, if we do this we could develop a unique bond with the other person which is much more precious than humiliation.
