I tend to show many people something I am working on to see what they think and how I can benefit from it, but there are times where I get too many different responses it confuses me, and also I get tons of different responses. For example:
Person 1: "Looks great man!"
Person 2: "I think it looks ok, I think you should do ___"
Person 3: "Coming along great, you should ___"
Is taking critiques from the most blunt the better choice? and does the person's reputation or talent factor in as well? If the person says "Looks great" does it really look great?
The reason I ask this is because I always get mixed responses and I heard before that sometimes asking for too much crit isn't that beneficial. So who should you take crits from and how much should you take in?
