Does discussions really clear misunderstandings?
We often say that one should sit across the table and discuss issues to clear difference of opinions. But is it really possible? The author feels that unless we are ready to accept our mistake if any and to acknowledge the views of others if they are right, there is no point in sitting across the table. What do you feel?

It is often said that when there are misunderstandings between any two persons, it is better to sit and discuss about it to clear them. But I have often observed that discussions lead to arguments rather than clearing difference of opinion. This usually happens because people don't try to listen to what other person is trying to say and wants to prove his point to be right. Also another major reason is ego of a person to accept the fault and clear the differences and hence a fight starts and even more gap is built between the two. I feel its better to ignore and stay quite rather than discussing and spoiling the relationship even more.
Do you also feel that there is no point in discussing or do you think discussions clear the misunderstandings?
