how would you know if you have wrong view?
"Whatever treasure in this world or in other any worlds, whatever precious jewel there is in the heavens, none is equal to the Buddha. In the Buddha is this precious jewel. By there truth, may there be wellbeing."

It is the opposite of Right View.
If you become familiar with Right View, you will have a sense of "wrong."
This link is to a fairly famous essay on the Eightfold Path by Bhikkhu Bodhi (Chapter of Right View).
