Kathryn Schulz: On being wrong

Some excellent advice for us all to remember...

"Trusting too much in the feeling of being on the correct side of anything can be very dangerous...[T]o me, if you really want to rediscover wonder you need to step outside of that tiny terrified space of right-ness and look around at each other, and look out at the vastness and complexity and mystery of the universe, and be able to say 'Wow. I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong.'"

Reminds me of one of my favorite Asimov essays and Feynman's comments in the BBC interview.
