The more committed the clown the more they cannot accept the failure! Their ego and the resultant embarrassment is there but pride and fear continue the obvious deception well past barking, and the more foolish it gets the more self image demands that the they should be right.

I know about Festinger from university days but I always wondered what would shape such a personality that would be able to accept embarrassment and being wrong.

Do you know if there has been any conclusive research done on this?
