Why do people get so defensive when confronted with the truth?

I just noticed that when people ask a question, and are given a honest and intelligent question, that people find the need to defend themselves and throw nasty words, names, and personal cuts?

    because they are guilty and they dont like to be humiliated. also because they jus want to be right most of the time.

    Some people believe truth is relative to each individual. I believe that there are certain truths, some can be proven, some can't, but if a person believes your truth isn't thier truth depending on how you approach the situation it can make people feel attacked....just my opinion

    yes, that's understandable.. do you think it's the fight or flight mechanism?

    If someone is reacting to you they are most likely a fight type person but if they leave the conversation then they are mostly a flight type personality. Some people are so unwilling to hear truth because they know that they are living a lie and do not want to take the steps to change so they sit around and find excuses to blame other people, God, whoever they feel has attacked them
