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.
Many people wonder what they should do if the presenter says something incorrect. As far as I know, no one is complete, and each person may make mistakes during different situations, and no one is immune from that. Since saying something incorrect could occur to everyone, I do not consider as a problem, and it is completely normal. In this particular case, if a teacher or a meeting leader says an incorrect quote and one of the listeners in the class or meeting room notices, he or she should have respawned appropriately, based on the various parameters. In this essay, I will analyze three of the main parameters. First of all, it depends on the influence that the incorrect quote can make on the concept and content of the discussion. As an illustration, if it makes an incorrect image or comprehension on the listeners, someone that noticed the mistaken quote should interrupt and corrects the mistake right away. Although this action may be stressful and needs significant courage, it will prevent the misunderstanding which can happen. Next, it depends on the size and amount of the incorrect quote. For instance, if the presenter says a minor and unimportant part incorrectly, it is worthless to tell because it has no adverse effect on the listeners' viewpoint. In such circumstances, it would be a better idea to wait until the class or meeting overs; also, the people leave the room. Then, talk to the presenter, and let them know about their mistake. Note that it should be done in an absolutely polite manner. Lastly, it depends on the character of both sides. As an example, if the person who noticed the mistake has an introverted personality, which causes a panic attack to him, it is better to be unsaid. On the other hand, sometimes, the presenter has a biased personality and hates criticism. On this occasion, it is also suggested to say nothing and leave the mistake. The reason is that it might have destroyed a person's carrier. By true cognition of the presenter personality, the listener can evaluate the situation and gets the right decision. As you can see, all three different respawns that have been mentioned above can be efficient and practical in various situations. Ultimately, I hold the opinion that it is better to wait for the right moment to tell the presenter their mistake in a respectful way.
