How do you know when you’re wrong?

Video

Kathryn Schulz, in her TED Talk “On being wrong” describes the assumptions we make when someone disagrees with us:  that they are ignorant (and simply need more information), that they are idiots (and don’t know how to interpret the information correctly), or that they are evil (and deliberately twisting the information).  However, these are all simply ways of justifying our own position, whether our position is correct or not.  What can you do to prevent having a blind eye to your own mistaken perspective?
