    I mean criticism that you feel is harsh or inaccurate. Does it put you down? Do you just forget about it?

    I don't take criticism well generally especially if it's harsh - I find it upsetting but I do get over it in a while

    If the Criticism is fair, I don't really have a choice but to accept it.

    If it is unfair, then it isn't really criticism, so you just don't listen.

    If it is logical, then take it on board and learn from it. Never take it as an insult though, even if that was the intention. The thought's and words of others are there to be accessed or ignored as you see fit. Allowing others to use your own emotions and empathy against you, is a big no. After all we are all flawed individuals.

    I don't really take criticism well, I'll listen to it and be respectful whether I agree with it or not regardless. There's two kinds of criticism though - improvement and nonsense.

    If the criticism is something that could help me improve, or is another way in tackling something (such as an alternate method of doing something that's quicker) then that's improvement criticism because it helps you improve. Similarly, criticism that's honest (and what you don't want to hear!) and will help you improve in the long run is good too.

    However, criticism that won't change anything and is done just for that specific person's needs (such as re-doing work just to increase the font by +1 for a teacher when it's easily visible - or when you get told off that your work is too detailed... ) is useless and generally makes you feel mad because you're not wrong, but that one person wants it like that for their needs - and it feels like you're getting told off for it. I hate that 'criticism' - nonsense criticism.

    I usually don't take too well to it as I'm stupidly sensitive, but I can handle it sometimes

    If it's unnecessarily harsh I really try my best to move on from it and ignore it. But if the individual was purely intending to constructively critique whatever it is I'm presenting to them, then sure. It's all good.


    But it would still hurt a lil.

    It depends- What am I being criticised on? Who's criticising me and how are they criticising me?

    Usually I can take it well, better than I did when I was younger. If the person is being spiteful I might just say, "thank you" or tell them "that was rude" etc. and walk away. All (or most?) criticism is good so it's good to listen and take on board what the person is saying.

    I can be very stubborn (a stubborn cow) and not admit that another idea is better than mine though e.g. in school

    So many immature people in this thread I take criticism really well and always make sure to look within before I lash out at people for being honest.


    I keep it real.

    We're talking about unwarranted criticism, look at the OP.

    Plus it was a joke. I just usually laugh it off, or smile.

    I don't "lash out", I will deal with it maturely to their face but think about it a lot afterwards.

    This is example of non-constructive criticism... :rolleyes:

    Who says we lash out? I agree that is immature but trying to belittle us is not mature either.

    If it's fair I always take it on board, even though I am upset about I'm not going to disregard it. To me that's not immature - what is immature is making putting words into other people's mouths - where did I say I would lash out exactly?

    I'm willing to listen to anyones criticism once.
    I don't take it to heart. I just view at as getting research on a public poll about myself.

    most of the time it does not effect or bother me. but sometimes it does. either way I still keep up the image that it doesn't bother me. I don't want them to have anything to smirk about.

    I see my self like a state.

    and the states intelligence agency always keeps an eye on what other countries say or think about them.

    Instantly take it on board and act upon it. Unless it is a load of rubbish where I know what I did, will do or am doing is the correct way.

    For example when someone told me how to play football I told them to shush their mouth. Not like I had played for over 8 years for a club where we won varies tournaments and played against premier league equivalent sides at our age group.

    Where as if someone criticised what I wore it'd be fine. I have no idea about fashion and what makes you look good. :laugh:

    We are imperfect so there is no such thing as unwarranted criticism. We could all improve and indeed we do improve all the time just look back to 5 years ago and think about how much you've become better at dealing with sticky situations. It's my opinion that all criticism even terrible one comes from a real place so it's in your best interest to take it on board even if you didn't like the method of delivery or the messenger.
