Just for fun

When we react to criticism with a knee-jerk, defensive response, it hurts not only them, but us as well. Have you ever thought to agree with your adversary? Even if you disagree with what they say about you. Why not for fun, agree with the criticism that is directed toward you. Then watch it go away. Your critics will be so stunned, they won't know what to do. They will just give up and walk away.

I've done that quite often. Most of the time it works and I have a good smile just seeing the reaction on their faces. There are times though that some have got aggravated and just went on and would not stop.

You are absolutely right! Works perfectly all the time, I could mention something to my critic like this: Thank you for your opinion or Yes you are absolutely right! hehe
