A critic is a person who points out your simplest blunders, in a profound way so that mistakes look like launching pads for a conspiracy theory of your faults.
Take your pick! 10 reasons listed here simply show common causes that some people critique, criticize, correct, or outright clobber a bloke.
Name any mistake that comes to you, and a critic will rush in to point out another bloke’s error. It’s a bit like hungry bear going after honey. Have you seen it?
Reasons differ, yet critics follow somewhat similar patterns:
- Facts appear wrong or missing and it seems vital to set folks straight.
- Brainy comparisons arise and critics refuse to be outwitted by plebs.
- Positions of power appear available to person who spots most errors.
- Feedback forms come with the job and require certain % of negatives.
- Opposing views confuse issues and so critics favor one correct way.
- Errors offer a platform for pontificating a finer approach – the critic’s.
- Personal reflection for growth takes skill – criticism seems far easier.
- Bloom’s taxonomy may be wrong and correct facts may be highest.
- Promotions are at stake and critics qualify more than their victims.
- Critics seem smarter and it helps an image to prove others dumb.
