Is your hero wrong?

“Showing the hero’s motive to the audience doesn’t mean showing it to the hero. Often the hero is initially wrong about his true reason for going after the goal and does not discover his real motive until the end of the story, at the self-revelation.”

– John Truby, Anatomy of Story (p77)
