yourself into a better person. Follow these
steps to get the most out of useful criticism.
Ask For Feedback
Find out exactly what others object to about
you. If someone tells you “You are bad,”
that’s not good enough. Find out exactly
why that person thinks that way. Be very
persisent--find out why the other person
feels the way he does. Vague criticism is
worthless to you.
Guess At Reason
If a person refuses to give you reasons for criticizing you, keep guessing at
your faults until you get the right one. This may be the only way to find out

Don’t Be Defensive
If you act defensively, you may not be able to benefit from useful criticism.
Don’t be sarcastic or intimidate the other person. You want to learn how to
