When I was taking my Divorce Mediation coursework, I had a hard time relating to the lessons about pets and divorce. You see, at the time, I wasn’t a pet owner, and I had difficulty understanding how someone can become so wrought with anxiety over the fate of a family pet.

What happens inside your brain when someone gives you feedback?
Do you cringe and wait for the criticism? Do you feel inferior to the person who is doling their comments to you? Do your defenses kick into overdrive? Do you freeze and just shut down?
Based on your answers, you may not be surprised that people who receive feedback apply it only 30% of the time, according to neuroscientist Kevin Ochsner. That’s a pretty low percentage.
