Even more strongly stated: Never critique anothers work unless you are explicitly asked to do so. In an earlier tip, this author quoted Rilke, and his
quotation resonates here, as well. Critiques often lead to misunderstandings. Generally speaking, an insincere, Thats nice, is better than an unasked for critique. Even if someone asks what
you think, feel them out to see whether they just want an attaboy or if they are seeking true analysis and improvement.
