3.Helpfulness - concession
It is hard to deny that when a teacher or a meeting leader says something incorrect in the classroom or the meeting, it is beneficial to everybody presenting if a person stands out to point out the mistake and then give out the right one immediately. And such a fact leads impressionable people to generate the idea that when people are under the same circumstances, they are supposed to interrupt and correct the mistake right away. However, such a statement suffers from both logical and factual fallacies, and it should be examined meticulously. As far as politeness, efficiency, and helpfulness are concerned, I strongly hold that when encountering the same situation, people are believed to wait until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone, and then talk to the teacher or meeting leader.
First and foremost, it is of politeness for people to wait until the end and then talk to the teacher or meeting leader to correct the mistake owing to the fact that people with a good education never interrupt others’ talking. Instead, they will continue to listen carefully and later express their ideas. On the contrary, interrupting others when they are speaking is always regarded as rude behavior, which is always being related to the lack of good education and enough respect towards the people in front of the classroom. It can be imagined that only if such a kind of thing is done, there is no doubt that everyone else will consider it as the absence of politeness.
Furthermore, the fact that waiting until the end of the class or meeting won’t influence the normal process and ensure its total atmosphere indicates that this behavior is of great efficiency. Take the case of one of my classmates, a diligent and outstanding student, who used to find the mistakes the teachers made in classes a lot of times. But on each occasion instead of pointing it out at once, he chose to have it talked with the teacher after class. As a result, not only did the teachers not get bothered and the classes moved on successfully, but also the mistakes were made right. Had it not been for the classes were not interrupted, teachers would not continue their flow of logical teaching if being stopped all of a sudden.
Nevertheless, a voice arises that if a person interrupts and makes the correctness at once, others presenting will know about this and be benefited from it too, which sounds to be of great helpfulness. Ironically, thanks to the development of internet technology, it is convenient for people to surf the information on the internet, from which they can easily solve the problem. Besides, if the one who finds out the mistake talks to the professor after meeting, what the professor only needs to do is to inform everyone of it through the university website, and even with more details and further explanation. Therefore, waiting until the class or meeting is over to correct the mistake is obviously more helpful.
In a nutshell, I maintain it is surely the best choice for people to wait until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone, and then talking to the teacher or meeting leader when the teacher or the meeting leader says something incorrect. It is of vital significance to behave in a suitable way in all circumstances, and after taking politeness, efficiency, and helpfulness into consideration, this choice suits this situation from all aspects. Although many people may oppose me, I do believe they will compromise after being opposed to my article.
