Difficult Personalities: The Criticizer

Have a creative approach? Do you have a different way of doing something or a new suggestion? If you do, the Criticizer will knock it down. His mission is to disagree with anything that is said. He likes to be right, no matter what. He finds problems wherever he goes, never opportunities. The Criticizer will never give you positive feedback but will always jump on your mistake. His favorite saying is "Bad idea."

Here are two work colleagues discussing an upcoming business trip:

Colleague: Let's drive instead of flying. We'll get there faster.

Criticizer: What, are you crazy?

Colleague: Why do you say that?

Criticizer: It's just a bad idea.

Colleague: OK. Let's fly up tonight so we can be fresh for tomorrow afternoon's presentation.

Criticizer: Where are you coming from? Bad idea.

Colleague: Why?

Criticizer: Trust me on it. You have less experience. Your thinking is illogical.

Colleague: Please be specific and explain yourself.

Criticizer: What? Now you can't understand me? What's wrong with you?
