Criticism Threads

I'm moving them to Random, since almost none of it seems even vaguely constructive...

If you actually want one to remain constructive, feel free to start it somewhere else, but then you have to state very clearly that you only want constructive responses.

Criticism Threads

Constructive criticism/feedback threads could go in the new psychology subforums when they get set up.

But yeah, quality criticism requires a number of things that are (so far) rather lacking on the forums, like people actually understanding each other in some depth. That requires conversation, questions, and so on.

Likewise, interview threads on the forums have almost totally consisted of random, even silly questions based on my experience. There's a very different way to interview people, that's based on actually trying to learn about their life story and who they are. And, on the other side if it, if people shared more about their backstory, situations, goals, ambitions, struggles, and so on, that'd open the door for constructive, critical dialogue.

Maybe instead of "criticism," the question should be "opportunities for growth." It's easy to tell someone they suck, but it's quite another thing to look for ways they could actually grow and improve, and help nudge that along.

RE: Criticism Threads

I don't think constructive criticism is common anymore, only destructive. You can't show and say anything flawed without it being torn down.

As far as I can tell, constructive criticism only works if your intention is to help, not be dick using the excuse of constructive criticism and assistance for being an intolerable asshole.
