An interesting, if provocative, idea. I'm not sure that being 'wrong' is taken as a badge of honor as much as conformity to group norms/models/worldviews that is at issue. So much of society seems to be a contest between rival groups of experts (and expertise). Toeing the line is often very important for being seen as a legitimate group member while closing ranks helps maintain group status during or after what could be constructed as a challenge to authority or position. Of course, as pointed out, these dynamics can have a real social cost. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I would highly recommend James March's (2010) The Ambiguities of Experience. March discusses a lot similar themes in the context of organizational learning.

I'll second the congratulations! I am also looking forward to reading the book.
