Generally, being critical is taken in a highly negative sense. Most of us believe that having this kind of attitude is ‘wrong’. But I suppose being critical can benefit you, as people began to take your opinions into consideration, you are considered as smart and it helps you to get a true friend as well. It just requires the right kind of friends: understanding, astute, introspective- the people that can embrace your critical remarks as a way to improve themselves or gain a broader and precise perspective.
Being critical is portrayed in a negative light because many people are misinterpreting the original meaning of it. It just doesn’t mean expressing adverse or disapproving comments or judgments, but also expressing an analysis of the merits and faults.

Here I’ve Explained the Benefits of being critical very precisely.

1. People Trusts You.

If you are critical, people rely on you to get accurate reviews. Whether their outfit is dope or their presentation was a fail, they trust your answers and believe in your opinions as well as reviews because the others don’t really let out what they are exactly thinking and worry about giving the true judgment; which is actually what makes you get along with them.

2. Your Opinions Are Considered While Taking Decisions

We all have or had those people in our life that give out sometimes fake, long appraisals while thinking all sorts of opposites in their heads. In the long run, their pretense or falseness turns out to be annoying and useless. This is where you are trusted. You don’t believe in those fake, positive analysis and hence could also be counted on to give opinions whenever the right decision has to be taken.’

3. You Are Considered as Smart.

As I mentioned above, the benefits of being critical also involve analyzing the merits and faults and that very quality of yours can make you deem smart. Being able to come upon a dialectic opinion, by considering the two sides, is indeed smart!

4. You Are Rare.

If you can criticize straight to the face, you are amongst the golden species in the virtual world of the 21st century. You are not that boring human, with a boring opinion. People usually enjoy your company as they get to learn more about how to improve themselves, they’re able to find their true self, and ultimately help them develop.

5. You Get A Real Friend in Need.

If you can criticize straight to the face, you are amongst the rare species in this time of the virtual world. Being critical takes lots of courage and patience. Not only that it also examines your friend and the friendship, how loyal it is or can be ahead.  This is one of the best benefits of being critical as it can have you a true friend who will remain by your side and will support you throughout your life.

So if you are considering changing that critical attitude of yours due to any glorification of the opposite then reconsider it! And do keep in mind that the right type of ‘critical’ is also essential. It’s about analyzing both: merits and demerits, and not just grumbling about everything in the surrounding!

That is why Sir Nicolas Boileau, a noted French Poet said
“Ignorance is always ready to admire itself, Procure yourself, critical friends.”
