Are you hypercritical? Don't beat yourself up about it

Before we go any further, here are a couple of interesting quotes:
Though it may sound depressing to compulsively find fault in everything, I've found that the benefits definitely outweigh the drawbacks.

Precious little in life gets fixed in the absence of a good understanding of what's wrong with it to begin with.

Years ago, I was stunned when one of my best friends (a very smart and thoughtful person) told me I was "the most negative person" he knew. And my wife someone very close to me has complained that I complain too much. I was baffled by these observations, until now. I knew these folks were wrong, but couldn't explain why.

So.......stop right now and go read the fascinating blog post entitled "Hypercritical" by John Siracusa, and all will be made clear.
