People make mistakes - but plenty of people will not take responsibility.
This happens differently in men and women.
Men who will not take responsibility for mistakes deny they have made a mistake; these men are always right and never wrong about anything.
Their decision was always right: what goes wrong is somebody else's fault.
Women who will not take responsibility for mistakes deny that they could have done anything different; they deny responsibility because they claim they had to do what they did.
They don't claim their decision was always right, but they deny that any other decision was possible.
These are extreme, yet common, caricatures of characteristically different modes of existence.
