It's an artist's choice to listen to criticism or not. I'm very sensitive to criticism.
You learn as a player not to listen to the criticism. Many of the people who put out that criticism might not be as accomplished, might not understand the game as well from the inside-out.
The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
