    I don't think this test is applicable to me, because I'm extremely sensitive to criticism but I know that I should not be. Baseless criticism is annoying, but does not really bother me. On the other hand if they are right and I am really in the wrong I tend to feel very, very bad about myself and will most likely over-react by breaking down and wanting to die.

Unfortunately, 99.9 (repeating, of course) percent of criticism comes from the former.
    Criticism is contextual. Is this because this person is a fucking moron and/or they don't agree with me, or are they really an expert?

    Oh I think its interesting that women learn to criticize themselves and men learn to criticize the other.

    That's fucking disgusting.

    I like to think I'm a blend of the two, that I have an ear for context, that I'm aware when criticism is warranted of me and when it's just the other person being a jackass.

    "Potential strengths". Really? Come on now.

    I guess it makes a kind of weird sense that a test about sensitivity to criticism would couch everything in terms that avoid sounding like criticism. It's pretty transparent though.

    Not really sure how it arrived that those results given how I answered some of the questions, but whatever.

    Yeah, but hardly surprising given the context of our society. It's the heroic, masculine thing to do to lash out aggressively and show no weakness, but women ought to internalise all criticism because it's always their fault for not being good enough. I think a lot of people grow up being spoonfed this crap, even in our allegedly enlightened age.

    Disgusting, I agree.

    So... did anybody have any limitations detected? I think this is a "smoke up your ass" test. Seriously, if it didn't detect any limitations regarding sensitivity to criticism in me, it's broke.

    I took it again while trying to come off as completely maladjusted and got some nice limitations.

    I should take the test, but it sounds like the results turn out opposite of how you answer?

    I know my sensitivity to criticism is contextual. If it is coming from a credible source, then I can take a ton of criticism. If it seems unwarranted and I don't trust the source of the criticism, then I get upset, but not because of doubting myself, but because it seems simply mean and intrusive. I do get upset when someone tells who I am, what my motives are, or what I'm actually feeling. That sort of criticism can make me angry because I consider myself the most credible source for those particular questions. For those questions I have trillions of data points to draw from and even someone really close to me would have only hundreds of thousands or millions. Even with that much they don't know all the internal processes of connecting those data points. Strangers/acquaintances online only have hundreds or maybe thousands of data points. I find that people who do that are almost always projecting something and are choosing to be blind to the other person for some reason. If someone tells me something is wrong in my actions or skill level, then I am pretty tough and not sensitive at all to criticism. I welcome it, actually, and seek out those people.

    Yeah I noticed that too. It said I had no limitations, when obviously I do.

    I wonder if the test designer did that on purpose. The people that are more sensitive to criticism, have more limitations but would likely be over sensitive to having those limitations pointed out. Taking those limitations as a criticism.
