    Why people like pointing mistakes of others?

    people have tendency to point out mistakes of others just to dominate others

    I think some people will point out mistakes in a nice way to genuinely help another. But yes, there are others who do it because it gives them some weird sense of superiority - which in reality they don't have. They are just arrogant twats!

    Most people who like to point out the mistakes of others make many mistakes themselves.  It makes them feel better about themselves to point out when others fail.  That way, they can pat themselves on the back thinking for once it was not them.

    I agree with the others who feel that the act provides a false sense/status of superiority. In addition, I see a higher frequency lately, online and offline, of people using behaviors and speech that is degrading, diminishing, and profane to the level of filth. At the same time, many of these persons correct "mistakes" by supplying horrid misinformation.

    Gossip is rampant everwhere and increasing numbers of unknowledgeble/untrained people are diagnosing Severe Mental Health Disorders without the right or license to do so.   

    The impact of all this negativity is that it catches the attention and creates an image of people as wanting other peope to suffer badly and die in general.
