    turning out to information

    "Turning out to" here is translated as "ignoring" and I haven't encountered this usage before, can you explain?

    ex)Listening effectively to others provides you with valuable information about yourself. Although you may not always like what you hear, remaining open to others gives you the opportunity to use their feedback to grow. Defensiveness, or turning out to information that does not fit your picture of yourself, is a major source of corrosion in relationships...

    Re: turning out to information

    Is it perhaps a typo for "tuning out to..."?
