    Aw.

    "Cancer" is, like, neutral to horribly evil. You'd be something more happy and friendly -- less "cancer" and more "symbiotic bird eating food off a crocodile".

    ^ That's an exaggeration. But I still don't take criticism well.
    I think we live in a criticism gone wild culture. There are a couple of ways I measure if a criticism is legitimate or if it is a social power play. I know it is a damaging dynamic in society because it's rare I get an adult beginning music student who doesn't flinch and isn't all tied up in knots with self-criticism. Society is destructive because people are constantly criticized at work, by in-laws, by their preacher, and gossiped about by friends. People tend to emulate whatever they focus on, so there is something legitimate to be said for communicating more optimism. When I teach beginner students I look for the moment they do it right and say, "That is exactly right!".

    First, constructive criticism tends to be specific and comes with the possibility of correcting the problem. An example could be, "the new filing system you created is unclear to a number of co-workers who are used to having each category separated instead of everything filed alphabetically together. When you get a chance, you can change it". A social power play criticism is generalized, sweeping, and something that can't be fixed, "you are too short to be in charge."

    Secondly, a constructive criticism should include something positive because nothing in the world is 100% a problem. This gives the person hope they can correct the problems. It's helpful if the positive comment is just as specific as the criticism, so it's better if someone says, "This part you are doing exactly right, and this part you can take a look at and correct in this specific way".

    I guess I say all that because the times I've worked in professional environments, I do think there is a fair amount of power play criticism going on, so there isn't always something wrong with a person to feel like it's not constructive. It isn't personal though, because people do it en masse, and in response to their own ego defensiveness (it's been done to them so they have to do it to someone else, anyone and fast to regain ego balance). I take negative social criticism badly and also feel every bad vibe, so I don't have a great solution for it, but I do wish people could focus more energy on positive qualities they possess and others posses because life is really short to only think about the problems all the time.

    I feel like sinking my teeth into something in a way that would rip someone's throat out. I don't know why the idea of that is so satisfying to me still. (This is a metaphor, just to be clear.)

    Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
