If such a person is reliably always wrong, you may call them a contra-indicator. This is sometimes used in financial markets. You may not know what to do, but then you look at what the contra-indicator does, and you do the opposite for virtually guaranteed success.
I'm not sure there is anything that describes someone who is ALWAYS wrong.
But someone who has a tendency always to be wrong, or show bad judgment, is sometimes described as wrong-headed.
There is no word for someone who is always wrong but im sure we can come up with few suggestions here is my suggestion
- Naive - adjective (of a person or action) showing a lack of experience, wisdom, or judgement
Unsound (adj.) feels like it might work.
Not dependably strong or solid.
Not physically or mentally healthy.
Not true or logically valid; fallacious: an unsound conclusion.
Depending on the context, I'd feel confident in the wrongness of someone described as unsound.
