I actually think the reason many get defensive and start arguing is that they simply do not understand what the problem is. If brake strand on top looks exactly like brake strand on bottom, or if a backclipped draw looks just like a correctly clipped draw, it's hard to understand what exactly the problem is. Now, a perfect human would say "I'm sorry, I don't understand how your setup is different from what I have now, could you please give me 5-10 minutes to try for myself so I realise how they differ and why your solution is better". In reality, you don't want to lose face (as you are supposed to know this stuff, having taken a course and everything), so you start arguing.
Still, I think a lot of people will start thinking, and when they get home, test it in their own privacy, maybe google a bit, and then actually learn!
So I would say that even though the first reaction often is defensive and arguing, the end result will still often be good.
