    How do ENTPs deal with people criticizing them, especially valid criticisms?

    Bullshitting. It's an art, but only if done well.

    I have to agree constructive criticism is more than welcome. I love getting good feedback. However I can't stand unconstructive criticism. In that case I might just criticize their criticism.

    I handle criticism very well, part of the never considering myself able to have thought of every view so open to more information and not being able to know how others perceive me unless told.

    Hell, I don't even care if it's meant to be constructive or not, it's all information that I can use.

    I don't appreciate people that question my integrity when criticising, that's the one thing that really irks me, but other than that I assess it from a very analytical and detached pov and ask myself; Does this person have an angle and does their criticism have merit? if the answer is no and no I dismiss it and move on, if they have an angle I use it against them, if it has merit then I become actively aware of what I'm doing or saying that may be negative and change.

    I like constructive criticism,it the type of criticism that allows you to find errors in what you have done in order to become better,like a computer upgrade...

    However,unconstructive criticism does not really allow you to find errors and most of the time provides no basis...

    hmm. Interesting and quite comforting as I recently started to get really annoyed at criticisms made by others of me such as being immature and being told to grow up and wasn't sure how I should react as I wasn't sure why they where saying it or how it was constructive. Its nice to know I'm not the only one who wants to just tell them to fuck off!

    motherfuck criticism. if someone criticizes me, i get supper defensive and lose my cool. how dare they?! who do they think they are telling ME such things?

    inferior assholes talking shit.

    i either tell them to fuck off or if theyre close, i hit them.
    the times when i most hate it is when i know i cant do or say anything to them (i.e. relatives or clients).

    when it comes to my work and people criticize parts of it...it isnt as bad but i still get somewhat offended if theyre right. so i usually bullshit my way around it so it looks right but in a different light. they buy it and then i dont have to worry :P

    This is kinda an interesting thread...especially since ENTPs ime love giving criticism themselves, often suck at formulating it and cannot stand it if you get defensive on them.
