Writer's Block: Critical mass

How well do you take criticism? Do you deflect it or take it personally? Does it usually inspire you to change? Are you more critical of yourself or others?

I "take" it very well. I just don't "handle" it well. I take it and stew over it forever. It sometimes inspires me to change if it is something I *can* change. Criticism of something I have no control over just makes me angry. I'm a whole lot more critical of myself than others. I think it is a family trait.

An example: I've had many people tell me they like my laugh. I had one, yes one, person tell me I cackle like a witch. Who do you think I believed?
