Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier)

Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier) | Education and Training | Scoop.it
What Your Brain Does When You're Criticised

 

At any given time, brains are subconsciously scanning the world around us for dangers to defend against—ready to launch a fight, flight, or freeze response that will protect us from predators or poisons. But the brain doesn’t just guard us against physical threats. Research has found that it also goes on the defensive in response to things that threaten to undermine our social standing and safety, including interactions that make us feel even mildly rejected or incompetent.

Definitely worth a read, if you ever have to provide feedback!

Criticism is so tough to swallow, apparently because our brains perceive criticism as a danger and so it gets into defensive mode! A few of the senior at the place where I work tell others to learn to accept vulnerability without being defensive. Most of the workshops conducted for employees revolve around making them feel comfortable with vulnerabilty. This, I guess is the first step towards accepting criticism without feeling threatened. Being comfortable with vulnerability depends, also to a great extent on developing  a secure environment.

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Any book lover can tell you: diving into a great novel is an immersive experience that can make your brain come alive with imagery and emotions and even turn on your senses. It sounds romantic, but there’s real, hard evidence that supports these things happening to your brain when you read books. In reading, we can actually physically change our brain structure, become more empathetic, and even trick our brains into thinking we’ve experienced what we’ve only read in novels.

We make photos in our minds, even without being prompted:


  1. Reading books and other materials with vivid imagery is not only fun, it also allows us to create worlds in our own minds. But did you know that this happens even if you don’t mean it to? Researchers have found that visual imagery is simply automatic. Participants were able to identify photos of objects faster if they’d just read a sentence that described the object visually, suggesting that when we read a sentence, we automatically bring up pictures of objects in our minds.
