Physician, critique thyself

What if you got as much critique as you gave, in the manner you gave it?

Would there be a lot?  Would it be easy to take?  Would it be about the details or the generalities?  Would you find the suggestions clear or ambiguous, personal or professional?  Would you want less?  More?

Questions like these help you see yourself from the outside, less about what your intentions are and more about the outcomes.  There is no perfect teacher for everyone, nor can one person give the best feedback all the time, but if we're aware of how we ourselves come across to others, we can then choose to change, to grow, to get (and be) better artists.
