Imagine that you are in a classroom or a meeting. The teacher or the meeting leader says something incorrect. In your opinion, which of the following is the best thing to do? — Interrupt and correct the mistake right away. — Wait until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone, and then talk to the teacher or meeting leader. — Say nothing. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Nowadays, they're a lot of meetings, seminars, and workshops on which we can acquire varieties of ken. Everyone has some weak spot in our daily life, and sometimes our tongue might sleep during a talk and incidentally became ultimately wrong. Personally, I believe that If my teacher or the meeting leader make some lapse we should talk to them after finishing seminars. I feel this way for two main reasons, which I will elaborate on in the following paragraphs. To begin with, Everyone makes some hasty and some wrong statements that might be due to different, and we should appreciate that oversight as well as we should keep their respect and esteem in the mass. We know that there are two types of mistakes one of them is an accidental aberration and another is an intentional omission. If a person makes an accidental fault, we should provide a chance to rectify the wrong statement. If we interrupt them in the mid of the seminar at that moment they might feel ashamed. So It's better to remind them later when they are alone. I have a compelling example of this from my own personal experience. Last year, I had organized a workshop on the astrophysics and the key speaker is one of the senior professors of the physics department. When he was elaborating about the explorations of the celestial bodies and blackhole, he made a minor blunder, and I immediately point out that fault, however, I could not interrupt professors. When the workshop was over the I reminded him, he appreciated me and thanked me. Even if I stopped him during the lecture and pointed out at that time his reputation might be down. Secondly, If a person interrupts during the seminar or meeting at that day there might be raised a conflict between the participant, which might stop the program itself. For instance, Five years ago, when I was a part-time teacher at a reputed school, and I was attending a personnel meeting, the school principal said some controversial and untrue statements about one of the school faculty, at the point one of my colleagues argue with that statement in the middle of the meeting. After that, the total team divided into two factions and the situation become worse and the meeting had been dismissed. That conflict devastated the academic activities for one month. Even If my friend had not imposed at that second, and he argued with the principal after the meeting by meeting alone. The conflicts between faculty might not have occurred and academic activities would not be stopped for a long period. In conclusion, I strongly believe that we should not interrupt our seniors during the meeting . Because it's consequences are out of our imagination and because it might hamper the prestige of the honored person.
