Being pro-criticism (learning from criticism, not ignoring it – ‘growth mindset’) doesn’t mean ‘listen to all criticism’. That’s impossible: there’s more criticism in the world than you have seconds alive to hear it. It means looking for criticism that might help your problems.

What criticism is under Critical Rationalism, and what it isn’t: ✅ Criticism helps solve your problems 🚫 Respond to all criticism ✅ Criticism can highlight interesting problems 🚫 You’re required to take on these problems ✅ Listen to criticism only when it’s interesting.

Criticism is bad when it’s: 🚫 Not part of a *tradition of criticism* (e.g. the scientific tradition = knowledge of what kind of crits work) 🚫 Not an explanation of why the thing is wrong (i.e. mere assertion) 🚫 Ad hominem (personal attack) 🚫 Not wanted

Criticism is only ever good relative to a context. If it doesn’t address a problem you have + are interested in + are currently working on, it’s not helpful. It’s good to choose what to work on at any given time. We don’t have time to work on everything.
