Causes of Conflict - Ego Problems
Ego is another strong driver of our behavior and decisions. Ego wants us to be "right," and moves us into defending our position, sometimes unreasonably.
One of the quickest ways to diffuse an argument or conflict is to admit one's mistakes.
At a minimum, move out of ego and attempt to see the situation from the
other person's point of view. There is a saying that it takes a big
person to admit his mistakes. Consider this the next time you are defending yourself, and not sure why.
