However, I like forcing people to give me only one answer. We can’t always maximize both of these virtues at the same time, and it’s how individuals respond in those moments that reveal a lot about them. It has been my experience most people pick being kind over being right when they are face to face with another human being. But, in a group or a setting less personal, they usually choose to be right rather than kind.
There is a time and a place for everything under the sun. Perhaps there is a time and a place to be right and another time and place to be kind. Knowing which is which requires a good measure of both truth and grace.
Take Away: There is a time and a place to be right and another time and place to be kind.
