Use the I hear you method . Just node your head and smile . Or use words like "I hear you/ you have some valid points " and "yea" . Create the illusion that you actually care . This works wonders when someone is going on a rant . Oh and remember to tilt your head this is a body language sign that you are interested in what the other person is saying . I use this when my aunt talks about her cat . Keep in mind if what the person is saying has any substance or value you might want to reflect .
First, I look at who is criticising and then listen. If it is constructive criticism , then I try my best to absorb it. Generally, I deal with the other kinds of criticism as I see it. I think about the good parts that will help me and discard the bad. I try to learn from it but some people criticise just because they feel superior. You have to listen and decide for yourself, what is good and what is bad.
I know that it's not the right way, but with me, it depends on how they go about it and WHO the criticism is coming from. I don't take it well from hypocrites. If it comes from someone I respect, different story.
I accept it, take it into consideration, and learn from it. But, if the criticism is from someone who just criticize for no reason, I take their logic, find the flaws, and smash said logic into the ground until they question their life meaning.
