HowdopeopleseemedifferentlythanIseemyself?

Have you ever heard a recording of your voice and thought, “Is that what I really sound like?” Because of the way the sound of the voice travels through the human skull, we never hear ourselves the same way that everybody else hears us. The same is often true for the way we behave. We interpret our behavior in terms of how we think we come across, whereas everyone else sees the real thing. A 360° assessment is a great way to gain this perspective. It gathers feedback that is constructive, anonymous, and accurate. If you forego the 360 and solicit feedback in person, make certain you ask for feedback that is specific, avoiding broad questions and generalizations. For example, you’re more likely to get an honest and accurate answer to, “How well did I handle myself in the meeting when everyone disagreed with me?” than to, “Am I a good boss?” And be careful to show that you’re receptive to the feedback. If you flip out or get defensive every time somebody speaks their mind, they’re going to stop doing it.

    It's a hard thing to accept criticism! At what point do you feel like you were able to receive feedback in a positive way, or did you always @Annika Rodríguez

      I actually haven't tried it yet, but I do sometimes try and ask my ask my friends criticism about how I handle certain situations that had happened, to see how I could handle myself better in the future. I think it is important to hear the critics that people have for you. It may be hard at first, especially is you are as stubborn as me, but then you will learn another part of yourself that never knew that existent. The part that everyone sees. We just have to accept that sometimes criticism is not bad, it just a way of realizing how you come of on people, and a way of realizing that there should be a change in how you react to certain situations and to certain people.  @Bethany Heinrich

        So true @Annika Rodríguez  it's helpful to know too that no one is perfect and we all make mistakes. I hear you though on being stubborn :-)
