  • I would feel very defensive if someone did that to me and it would probably end up being a huge argument. People have their own opinions...I guess if others don't like it, don't ask the question or let it roll off your shoulders. I'm sure that's why they're rounded
  • If so, you don't want to answer on AB 'cause that's quite common.
  • Depends on how the other person communicated that and whether the issue is something I care deeply about, I suppose.
  • Desapoiment maybe but not offended.
  • BECAUSE MY OPINION IS ALWAYS RIGHT!I'M THE POPE MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
  • I'd be more surprised if they said I was Right!!!
  • That happens to me all the time with my boss at work. It used to bother me because he would chime in 'you are telling them the wrong thing' when a customer would ask me about a product I own and if I liked it in general. I had enough of it one day when he was confusing the customer with his off the wall remarks. I was talking to a friend after my shift was over and he took me aside within ear shot of this person and told me, "You need to tell this person exactly what I want you tell them or you can not work in this department anymore." I smiled and said, "Excuse you, but my shift ended 10 minutes ago and I can speak to my cousin on my time any time I like. As for this department, I have transfered to a different one because of your rude behavior with the employees. Goodbye." It was my best day ever.
  • It happens to me all the time :(
  • I'd keep asking the other person why I'm wrong.
  • hmm. offended? notsomuch. i'd just remind them that it's an opinion, not fact. so there is no right or wrong. just as i can't say that THEIR opinion is wrong. just the way things are, can't be offended because someone doesn't agree with me. that's silly.
  • Not at all. I will try and open a debate and try to convince while being ready to be convinced. If nothing works just agree to disagree and move on.
  • Offended? No. If that were the case, I'd be 'offended' alla time! Lotsa folks disagree w/ me. ;-)
  • I wouldn't be offended, but I'd appreciate it if they explained how, and why, I'm wrong.
  • You mean like giving you a minus rating. That's the one that burns me. If you are going to give me a minus at least tell me why. Don't just be a punk and hit and run away.
  • I want to hear im wrong. All science wants to hear it is wrong so that it may better itself. When it is irrefutable, then it sticks.
  • I am all the time. If I only had a nickle for every time I've answered a question here with my personal opinion and I've been told that it's wrong, what to say, what not to say, how to say it, how not to say it, how to express it, how not to express it, how to word it, what words not to use...Sheesh! I'd be a millionaire today!
  • It depends on who is saying it,what and how it was said.A stranger's opinion doesn't matter that much to me.If someone is a jackass,then you can have some fun with that.If it's someone you know well then trivial disagreements can be worked out easily.If it's a big blow-out with someone you know,then agree to disagree or wrestle them down until they submit.
  • It would very much depend on the way the person expressed himself. It is certainly quite frustrating to be told that an honestly held opinion is wrong, but some people just can't accept that their opinions aren't universally shared.
  • No. The chances of me giving a shit are- ZERO.
  • Opinion cannot be wrong. It is a person's personal view on something.
  • No, as long as they were civil ....and I would appreciate it if they explained why?
  • Opinion: a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty. It can't be 'wrong', it may be screwy, but not wrong. (lol. For what that's worth.)
  • Everyone is entitled an opinion, but of course there is going to be differentiality between one and another. I advise you to read Mark Twains satiristic essay, "The lowest animal"
  • Don't start with the w-word ('You are wrong.') That puts anybody's back up. And with good reason. Better state your own view, gently, adding that you could always be wrong. Which is true - the one who knows everything is yet to be borne. This is a thought-provoking question and I am giving it my approval.
  • No. Its just a difference in opinion. They're certainly free to consider me stupid or a terrible mean person or whatever. It doesn't bother me. Life is awful and stuff and will deal out much worse than that.
  • Not only would I be offended, but I'd slap them across the face and tell them to shut their mouth.
  • Not offended, its like an every day occurence here on AB! I do find it kind of arrogant and ignorant of the person to do so though. Tell me you believe I am wrong and tell me what your opinion is - do not shut me down and tell me categorially that I am wrong because I have different views and experiences.
  • opinions are always relative and partial, never total. so no i won't be offended if my opinion is said to be wrong. opinions are suject to right and wrong. facts are there, take it or leave it.
  • Not really. They are not asking me for facts... facts can be right and wrong but opinons are based on perceptions and feeings.
  • nope everyone is entitled to an opinion
  • Hell. . . . . . . . . . . . .NO!!!!!!!
  • Your opinion cannot be wrong, it's your opinion. If you state your opinion is a fact that is a different story, but your opinion can only be judged in terms of if someone agrees or disagrees, you cannot be wrong.
  • chutar wala
  • I am more than happy for them to give a different view, and to give their reasons why - with all the facts, I may decide that my original opinion was wrong - but don't tell me it is wrong. You can have a vehemently different opinion to me but we can still both be right!
  • Not all opinions are factually correct. If I was wrong, but I believed my facts were correct I would expect the other person to give me their facts. If I was correct, but the other person told me I was wrong then I would take private pleasure in knowing that they might be an idiot.
  • I would prefer they said 'I don't agree' and explained their opinion to me. Who knows, in doing this they might even change my mind. However if they just said 'your wrong' I wouldn't be inclined to listen to their point of view at all.
  • Not really. I am more curious about how the person came to their strong opinion.
  • Depends on how it is said. If nicely then no necause I like to learn.
  • not really
