Criticism, Belief, and Experience
June 14, 2014 9:21 AM Subscribe
Does anyone have any advice about taking criticism is a healthy manner? Whether it be work, your home life, or some other venue, taking criticism seems to be an important skill. When people who I do not know very well offer criticism or unsolicited advice I can have a hard time with it, if I'm not sure whether what they are telling me is solid or not. Which leads me to my next question about how much of what someone tells you do you take on faith versus trusting your own experiences?

There are all sorts of things that I don't know much about, so it can be hard to know whether someone is talking at a level that I just don't comprehend from lack of experience. There isn't enough time to study everything and know about everything, so how do you decide on whether or not the person you are talking to is offering good advice?
