I take it well if it's meant to bring a flaw to myself or something I'm doing to question - because that's what I want to know. I want to be able to improve, every so little. Constructive criticism is very valuable. Criticism out of spite / elitism is not. I respond poorly and usually turn it around on them, as I should, to that stuff.

Depends. The truth hurts, but baseless accusations are hilarous. I love to listen to rants about how bad of a person I really am.

Depends on the criticism. If the criticism ends up being something that's far out of the bounds of what I could accomplish, or very vague then I'm not a fan. But if it's a criticism of something I can realistically work towards or could've improved then I'm fine with it.

People who feel the need to make you feel like crap aren't worth your time.

I can, as long as you're mature. In other words, I don't take criticism from pre-teens, so grow up! and then we'll talk. People will get easily uncomfortable with criticism when you are salty or childish.

Yes, but depends on the tone of said person, if they seem to be attacking me, or nastily sarcastic, I could become a little defensive.

Eh, sometimes. I guess, on a subconscious level, I don't like to be challenged, and sometimes criticism can come off as fierce by some people. But, if you're the type who is always striving to get better, criticism can be helpful. For me, the whole notion about "feeling challenged" is that I like to think I know a lot of things, and so when I get a critical response I suddenly feel stupid, or like I made a mistake on something I said. That's just my problem, though; I don't know if others feel this way when they get criticized.

Besides, allowing criticism is another element of freedom of speech. You can always say something, but you must expect feedback based on what you say. On the Internet, various social media allows for blocking users, though having heard about various stories, blocking someone for having a conflicting opinion makes you a hypocrite, and also gives the impression that you require an echo-chamber or a hug-box. But, that's just all my opinion, and I don't force them on others.

So, if I make a post, and you respond to my post, and your response includes criticism....I won't be happy at first, but I won't raise hell about it. After all, I'm not always right, and I don't know everything. Nobody does. Besides, criticism can be interpreted as "constructive" if you allow for it.

Yeah, I make music so I like constructed criticism. If it's "You suck" without and other words, I find it pointless but it doesn't effect my feelings.

I'm OK with constructive criticism, or criticism from people who are better or more knowledgeable than me. I don't like to be criticized when I'm sure I'm right though. It doesn't get me real upset but I definitely get irritated.

I don't really get flat out insulted or disrespected in real life, but that will make me hostile. I have a natural reflex to push back, probably because I grew up with five brothers. Very rare that happens as an adult though.

Of course online I am insulted and disrespected all the time, but I can't do anything about it so who cares?

Depends on if it's constructive or not. If someone is using it to put me down but if their doing to help me so I can improve on something then yes.
