Quiz: How Do You React To Constructive Criticism?

We’re all going to receive constructive criticism at some point. So the big question is “how will I react to constructive criticism?”

Some people react personally, asking “Why did this person just criticize me?” Some react by saying “I need to figure out exactly what went wrong.” Some people react to constructive criticism by thinking “OK, now tell me how to fix this.” And still others analyze the constructive criticism, asking “Does this criticism make sense?”

Take this quiz to see how YOU react to constructive criticism.
