Challenged Vs. Affected

Germany
August 24, 2017 5:53am CST
In our daily life we all meet different kinds of people and personalities. In short, we can`t avoid meeting someone who will make us feeling Challenged or Affected. Now, in my own definition of being (1) Challenged is more of a positive reaction from a situation or problems encountered while (2) Affected is more of a negative reaction. My question is this: What will be your reaction if someone is trying to tell you.. 1. You have a problem with your work! Please! try reviewing it again. 2. There`s something wrong with you, Are you ok? For me: 1. Challenged : I will ask that person to tell me those problems which made him/her say that my work have a problem 2. Affected a little but I can be challenged..How? I will ask her what is it that she/he find wrong with me..Maybe, others might see something wrong with me but I can`t..and it will be helpful if they will tell me..Right? So, it is your turn..

I encounter difficult people in the workplace. In school not so much. I always have problems with people in the workplace. I easily get affected

Yes..It is true we can`t avoid meeting them but I hope you will try not getting affected because being affected can cause bad health Thanks for sharing

Let see... I would scratch my head, pull my beard, and said, 'pardon?' to both cases. To the second one, my extra reaction would be a surprised look, and pointing at my chest, say, 'moi? you are being funny, right?'

I will probably get affected first. Then I will think about and motivate myself. Sometimes getting mad or frustrated doesn't help much if you feel that way for too long.

I don't take too kindly to people criticizing others when there's no need for it other than to be mean & cold hearted, I don't mind someone HELPING me if something is wrong with what I'm doing to explain it to me or help me with it.
