Se tromper

For the sentence “Yes, you’re not wrong” I wrote “Oui, tu ne te trompes pas” thinking that I could use “se tromper” as an alternative to “avoir tort”, but it appears not. Can you explain ?

This question relates to:
French writing exercise "I prefer going skiing"

Hi Anita,

To be wrong is avoir tort’ and ‘se tromper’ is  to be mistaken which have slightly different meaning and uses...

Hope this helps!
