I have just opposite views ......... it takes much much less time & easier to rectify the mistake than to justify it

Nothing can be truer than this. It is a mix of lack of competence coupled with unreasonable expectation, and envy. Ego, self-centeredness, apathy towards equals or others, fear of going down in other\'s esteem, failure to bypass responsibility, intent of shedding own responsibility .......... so on are behind these.

But there is also a different side to it . When I am a spectator or judge, then, this attitude is quite logical. Suppose I am an art critic - I can have any feeling about the piece of work and the expression of that feeling may be criticism as you are telling. If I am watching Sachin or Yuvraj, it id not necessary that I will match them in competence.

Where your statement is absolutely correct is when something from me is expected as well. I will be a bitter critic of some one who may pose a threat to my stability or interest.

Yes! It is human tendency to be critical than be correct. We are forever searching for others faults with a telescopic lens and want others to look at our faults with a microscopic lens... why do all the glamour magazines flourish the reason is we want to just absorb all the juicy bits of gossip concerning the various film stars don\'t we also have those human failings but no we want to focus only on their faults and magnify them ....the Media thirves on washing the dirty linen of the top notch politicians ...infact the media has a field day only because of the the tantrums and weakness of our politiicians....you are absolutely right sir that it is easier to be critical than to be correct....THank U sir for a very intelligent question!
