You can be completely right but they won‘t agree

We can be wrong when we believe we are right as people can be right in different ways. Think about misinterpreted communication between person A saying something to person B.

B might not hear A say something and so could say B ignored them, while B says A said nothing to them. Technically they are both right. Neither will change their opinion.

By understanding that your unbeatable logic might be wrong in their eyes, you can prevent situations caused from a difference in perception.
