Do you like the people who correct you?

Are there people who correct you? Are there people who point out what is wrong and what can still be improved? Usually these are the people we would rather avoid because they make us uncomfortable. Oftentimes, they are the KJ's(kill joys)in our lives. But consider yourself lucky if you have people like that in your life. These are the people who really care. They just accept to be rejected by you, just because they care for you.

Yes, there are people who correct me but they are divided into two types of individuals. 1)The ones who talk tactlessly. 2)The ones who can tell it to you in the utmost civilized manner. Those who know what the right unoffensive words to use. Like for instance, the tactless one will say "hey, he's so stupid because his grades are so low." and there's the cvilized one "he's academically challenged. his grades need a lot of improving." I guess you know what I mean. It's ok to point out my faults, I'm all open for... tell me I have body odor or even bad breath but pls. do it in a modern, constructive, unoffensive manner as much as possible so that you won't sound stupid yourself.

I have a great respect for those who take the pain to observe my mistake and suggest correction. They are in fact our real well wishes, though they have a ego of blowing their trumphets. One has to suspect a guy who constantly praises us, but one should always welcome a guy who criticises us or corrects us.

I dont mind being corrected but i have a problem with people looking out for every single mistake i make with the intention of correcting me. That drives me up the wall.

I'm very rarely corrected by someone else because I like to be very self-disciplined when it comes to either talking or writing, so you'll rarely see me commiting a mistake. I think that people that are oftenly corrected shouldn't be discouraged because of that, as you say, they should be glad they have people in their lifes who want to make them improve.

I don't get corrected very often myself either but when it happens, I always try to take the suggestions very seriously.

hmmmm.... thats a difficult question! I like people who pass healthy criticisim, who do it because they want me to do better and have my best interest at heart but then there are individuals who correct you or find faults in you just for the sake of letting you down or making you feel inferior, these are the types i dont like and avoid!

yes, those who correct you but have no bad intentions whatever want you to be a better person...once they've corrected you example for your pronunciation, in your childish actions, in your behaviors, if said in a nice and friendly way, well, its ok...

I give much appreciation on people who correct me. I usually take their criticisms with gratitude and not hostility. At first, we might fell upset or offended whenever people correct us, but if we think about it, we relaized that they correct us because they want us to do better.
