Never defend myself (in any case)
When right, just a simple explanation to sort things out .... when wrong, just a simple apology.

A common justification for abuse of short-term thinking is the fake perspective defense. There's a difference between that kind of self-defense and the more common defend-explain-justify behaviour that most around seem to engage in almost daily. The concept of being innocent until proved guilty is common throughout civilized society for good reason. The problem with you is that you like to be right and sometimes will defend ideas to the death rather than admit you are wrong. This is bad. As social animal, you are heavily influenced by how the people around you behave, and the quality of your own internal decision making varies widely depending on the environment you currently are in. The primary point is that no amount of intelligence can help an individual, who is diligently working at the wrong level of the problem. So your best defense starts by breaking an argument down into pieces, Anu :-)

I try to explain things when some misunderstanding is there.. If I commit a mistake, I try to clear why the mistake occurred. If that explanation fails, I stop there..and do not go on defending myself..

Hi, I defend when te law of the land asks me to do it in my defence...otherwise until the person accussing me holds any value or regard in my life i care to explain , just to clarify the doubt and maintain the relationship otherwise i am least bothered. Second part of question...I do not defend when i am wrong...it is better to apolgise to the person irrespective of his or her status and move on....there is no point in trying to defend when one is wrong.
