How do you feel when some one criticizes or insults you?
Do you ever get offended?
If so, what is the main cause?
If not, how do you avoid it?
For me, I generally do not get offended. I avoid this by analyzing where the person comes from, realizing why they said what they did, and then disregarding it. I see the root of most public insults (towards the self and others) as natural human insecurity, and people trying to prove themselves or place themselves above others. So I generally view the situation from a psychological view, and thus regard it as silly humans.
I am curious though, how do you all react?
