Being right often conflicts with being successful 

The desire to be “right” is occasionally mutually exclusive with being successful. Which do you prefer? 

Either way the desire to be right is innate, subconscious. That means it’s largely out of your control. 

You’re not a bad person for wanting to be right. No, you pretty much have no say over the satisfaction you receive. Or the gut wrenching feeling when you feel “wrong.”

However, you can be aware of the tendency. And correct course when it’s leading you astray.
