When someone asks you for feedback on his work, what do you tell him?
Can you tell him the whole blunt truth without him getting angry with you?
Can you lie through your teeth and hope that you don’t break out in a silly grin?
Should you keep quiet and appear ignorant and stupid?
Or should you give him the feedback that he wants to hear?
Ahhh, Feedback, how lovely thy name, and yet perplexing your game.
We once had a sketch in Pri 4 which was called Feetback, and it was most apt for the way people often respond to the truth. Jack Nicholson once said: “You can’t handle the truth!!”
