QUESTION: If you overhear people clearly saying incorrect facts (say they are sitting next to you in class or on a bus), do you butt in and correct them, or just let it be?

  4. I laugh a little if they sound absolutely certain. If it's two people who sound unsure, I'll offer my opinion.

  5. If I feel it's important to correct them (e.g. they have some fact wrong that they will need to use on an exam or something or if they're being extremely ignorant about something) then sometimes I correct them. Otherwise I don't.

  6. Depends too on my mood or the context. I have to be sure I am right and think that they will benefit from knowing before I jump in. Or sometimes I will use it as an intro into the conversation if I like the sound of these people.
