The Angle



The bright side of being wrong

by Kathryn Schulz
Like the exam that’s returned to us covered in red ink, being wrong makes us cringe and slouch down in our seats. It makes our hearts sink and our dander rise. But our tendency to err is also what makes us smart, and we'd gain a lot if we fully embraced it.
From The New York Times
