HT Mockingbird: Kathryn Schulz On Being Wrong

When Schulz asks, "What does it feel like to be wrong?" she gets answers such as, "Embarrassed".  Then she explains that these are not answers to the same question.  These answers are answers to the question, "What does it feel like to realize you're wrong."

It is possible to go on for quite some time being wrong but never feel wrong and to, in fact, be certain that you're right.
