Unfair Criticisms

Criticisms would always come. I blogged about it days ago. I was reading a book by Seth Godin and he wrote about 5 ways to be an unfair critic:

1. Speak in absolutes.

” That was the worst preaching ever”. Heap as much negativity into one sentence as possible.

2. Criticize not just the item in question but also the background of the person or organization responsible for it.

3. Criticize the motivation of the creator.

4. Criticize the taste and judgment of anyone who disagrees with your criticism.

5. Make threats in your criticism.Ex: “I’ll tell everyone”
