Ask HN: How do you deal with the human ability to never take responsibility


I notice this in myself and many others. The mental gymnastics we play to deflect. Just about everyone plays this game. Elon just did this recently and wrecked havoc on the Twitter staff.

How do we deal with this? That it’s my fault, and I don’t want to contort it and take to out on someone else or even myself. Why do we humans lack an ability to let a person confess within reason?

Or do I need to show up with a sink somewhere?

What exactly is a mistake?
