We have resident manager before here in our hotel that doesn't want to admit her mistakes. It's very difficult to explain everything to her the point because she kept on insisting that she's more mature so she knows better than her staff. It really annoyed me so much because I want to speak out the right one but she's to stern!! ARE THERE REALLY PEOPLE WHO DOESN'T ADMIT THEIR MISTAKES?WHY?

I do but there are people who I know who don't. One of them is my mother. It always gets on my nerves when she simply can't admit something. Like when she is wrong about something.

Lucky for me because my mom readily admits that she's in a wrong side. ^^,

yes, i admit mistakes after thinking of that matter for a long time. i always say sorry to anyone who got hurt because of me and explain anything to them. i am an open minded person. i accept whatever they will tell me as long as its for my own good.

Those kind of people are proud, and yes they do exist. But I have to say that these kind of people will never make a good leader in them. The reason behind id that serves as their front.

Yes, i will admit my mistakes no matter what ^_^ There are always ple whom they think they are always right, and the usually happens on those ple whom are older.. BEcause in their mind, they think they knows everything and they have more experience, thus they only believe in themselves.. But for younger ones, it's because they are too proud and arrogant, thus they will never wanna admit, instead, they will start to divert the main subject away.. As too how to deal with this kind of ple, there's no way unless they will always come up with hundred and one excuses for things, but never admit.. lol

I do very often admit my mistakes. I think that it is good to admit when you are wrong. Everyone makes mistakes. I am so sorry to hear that you have this problem. Some people can not leave themselves vulnerable, especially an employer or someone in an authority position. They think that it is not acceptable to be weak. Good luck with this problem.
