I Want Criticism Not Compliments

The best gifts are useful gifts. One Christmas I got socks which I was a
little miffed about until it turned out I actually needed socks. Many times I
have been given compliments like a gift. What use is a compliment? There is a
quick rush of happiness, a little smug satisfaction, a tiny increase in your
sense of self worth. But how can you make use of a compliment? What information
does a compliment contain to better yourself with? The last thing I need is
more air to inflate my ego. I want criticism.
I can take criticism and use it to better myself or the project I am working
on. Criticism has a use and a purpose where a compliment does not.
