How To Criticize – Offer Constructive Criticism

We human beings are instinctively evaluative in nature and this quality have contributed a lot in the growth of mankind. We unconsciously scan situations, people, ideas and react as per our judgement of the same. We judge the value of anything based on our personal values and experience. Criticism is a part of evaluation and is very critical and important in developing an idea into a legendary base for future development.

Anyone has a right to criticize, but a genuine critic is the one who has the real intention to help other person. Criticism needs to focus mainly on the thoughts/idea and not the person. We have no right to criticize other person. In fact, wrong criticism may lead to reduced self efficacy, lowered self esteem, outburst of emotions, conflicts and many. Criticism should be constructive, specific and descriptive. The criticism should explain the ‘why’, ‘how’, ‘what’, ‘where’ and ‘when’ of the issue. This will demonstrate the innate interest of the reviewer in helping the author.
