At times it happens that the teacher observes something and wishes to correct that, but the student is actually working on something else. Student should always listen to the teacher. ALWAYS. Even when you disagree, listen, take notice, think about it. This really polishes your judgement.
Then there's sempai observing something and wanting to correct it while the student is working on something else.

And students of the same level observing something and wanting to correct it while student in question is working on something else.

And then there's kohai observing something and wanting to correct it while the student is working on something else.

We all agree you should focus on what the teacher wants you to focus on. The rest... depends.

A good method to show student what they are doing wrong is exaggeration.
That depends on how it's done, I guess. "You do like this" and then exaggeration is probably not so good. "Nobody is really doing like this, but this is an exaggeration of a common error" might turn some lightbulbs on in the crowd.
