I was criticized recently by someone whose opinion I could care less about.

The initial reaction I guard against when criticized by anyone is to get defensive, but more so when the criticizer is not a friend, colleague mentor, or family member.

However, in every case, even ones like the above where I don’t care what the person thinks of me, I assume their criticism is at least partially true. We all have blind spots.

Instead of arguing, I seek to address it.
