Can Web Designers Deal with Criticism

The web development industry which is pretty creative in nature can bring in a wide range of criticism for you. In order to survive in this world, you need to handle critics and disproval of people. Criticism can tend to put a situation of restlessness, agitation and even test your nature and character. Criticism can act like a destructive force to you provided you take it in a negative way; however, the same can act like a driving force if taken positively. The way you handle the criticism coming to you will decide your stature and success in the web development market. The following are the ways of handling criticism:

Retain the positivity in you

positive

When someone criticizes on designing part, they can be considered to be subjective. Every person has his or her own way of seeing things and designing is a vast field. So even you find things improper, you can’t think of ignoring the criticism virtually. You cannot expect others to see things in your perspective, so disagreement or criticism is part of the game. When you see people criticizing your work, make sure you do not take things on your personality and therefore no need to take things personally. Go with your positive attitude and respond in a calm way.

Be careful in your first reaction

:

reaction

You first reaction towards criticism is generally always defensive. You shouldn’t be ending with things which you might regret later. Hence it’s better to take a pause for a while and think before saying or uttering anything. The moment you are free from your anger, you can conclude with an appropriate response.
Making out the difference between useless and useful criticism: You can get whole lot of criticism on your web development work, but it is vital to discriminate between a useless and useful kind of criticism. The feedback or criticism which is worthy enough to get the attention is generally clear and logical. The baseless feedback gives no sense; a classic example can be people who claim that they disliked the color of your design. Any useful criticism can be the one which is explained by the person in a logical way and would like to see you improving in your designing skills.
