    Default ENTPs how do you cope with criticism?

    I've noticed recently that I constantly get quite a lot of critisism and I've had a lot more than usual recently so I'm curious as to how other ENTPs cope with criticism.
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    Sometimes I find it to be a servere hinderance, because I'm not trying to get it perfectly right, I'm just cruising. Most of the time, I'm pretty okay with it. My brother is an ISTP, and he's aways got a critical eye on me whenever I play guitar, he notices when I fail to do a certain technique the right way and critiques it regularly. However, I think critisism is the reason I disliked using the phone, my mother was a receptionist and considered herself the authority when it came to speaking appropriately on the phone, and as a result, hounded me while I was trying to talk... which was rather distressing. I'm not usually hurt by critisism unless it's unfounded and I disagree with it and my disagreement is ignored... which happens sometimes.

    Depends.
    Criticism on my person = bad.
    Criticism on everything else = gold.

    - The students of that class said to me your lessons were too difficult. Maybe you should... => OK, I'll try to do better!
    - After reading the first chapter of your new novel, I don't care whether your main character lives or dies => Thank you!
    - You will never be able to write a thesis =>

    Yeah, that. "Everything else" includes my work, art, taste in music, clothing style, and so on. I don't necessarily respond badly to criticism, but in cases- those Tamske stated as "criticism on my person"- I'll respond rather passionately to.
    Example: I'm working on a project, and I decide to break a rule; somebody tells me, You can't do that. My response is, Bullshit. Watch me. This doesn't mean I start breaking every rule I can break, rather to break a rule and still come up with an exceptional finished product.

    I don't, I'm right and they are wrong. Always.

    On the other hand, if people try to help me with something I'm doing I'll listen to their advice.

    I like this:

    When somebody calls you an asshole, tell them fuck off.

    When somebody else calls you an asshole, tell them to fuck off.

    When another person after that calls you an asshole, tell them to fuck off.

    When, yet another person calls you an asshole, look at yourself before you tell them to fuck off.

    And...

    Another way to look at it, is instead of letting opinions, criticisms, insults, incentives, or whatever move you—or instead of shutting out the whole world with solid air-tight reinforced impenetrable walls… build doors.

    In other words, you make what matters, matter. Because if you really think about it, only you are in control of you.

    If I could add just one thing...

    I prefer to say to people "A fire... go die in one."

    Its just a stylistic difference I know, but I felt it needed to be said. I don't feel that this topic warrants discussion at Thursdays meeting.

    You want to tell me I'm wrong? Screw you
    That's incorrect grammar? Screw you...I talk how I want to. (secretly thinking I will never make such a mistake again)

    I just don't cope with it. There are usually only two situations:
    Criticism on my person- shut the f*ck up and look at yourself, buddy.
    Constructive criticism on my work or opinion- useful.

    And the third one- do you think I care what do you think about it?
    Oh yeah?

    Tell 'em, Mama said knock you the fuck out.

    Then, follow-through. (oh, stop looking at me so skeptically!)
