Like all emotions, pride is a subconscious or automated reaction to absorbed information. It isn't something we choose. It doesn't deal with reality, but instead deals with your feelings of comfort. It just feels better to assume you're always right. I mean, who wouldn't want to have all the answers?
I deal with pride on a regular basis. I used to be as prideful as they come. I have made improvements, but it still will get the best of me from time to time. The assumption that we're right is flawed in several ways. Right and wrong are often very relative. There isn't some concrete answer to observe. Also, from our perspective we have to realize the truth before we can really conclude what's right. When you have pride, the truth is never what concerns you. A feeling of comfort is all your mind is after, so assuming you're right works perfectly. The truth is bigger than we assume however. There are more elements involved than we initially consider.
If you can objectively see the truth of 'what' you assume, you'll have a chance at confronting your pride. But, if you can objectively see the truth of 'why' you assume, your pride just met its worst enemy; your conscious.
