No one likes complainers and spoilsports. Conversely, each of us sometimes just wants to put forward his critical opinion. How does this succeed without becoming a spoilsport? 6 tips.

What are game spoilers?

Everyone knows whiners and spoilsport - and nobody wants to have anything to do with them. These are the people who are attracted by constant criticism and nagging unpleasant, or at least can annoy pretty, right?

Yes and no. Often at first you are inclined to talk to colleagues or people in your own Facebook-Timeline to be dismissed as a nag. If you then take a closer look at one or the other problem, you realize that nagging may not be that unjustified.

However, one must distinguish between nerds who nag out of sheer lust for nagging (or out of frustration?) And those who only express their opinions, for example because they believe that something is wrong Company or to move in society.

The sound makes the music

So you can become a “complainer” from very different people - and it's not just your own that is decisive Motivation but also how others perceive you.

Paradoxically, unpleasant nagging usually arises when you are afraid with yourself Criticism to attract attention.

Criticism correct

Especially when it seems important what other people think, one tends to express one's criticism in a much more condemned manner or to only half-heartedly say “yes” to something, even though one actually means “no”. Because the other person could have a bad picture!

Not even close! Studies show that other people are respecting people who stand by their statements - if they are fair and give a good justification for their attitude.

Therefore: Criticizing in a timely and friendly manner is always better than always saying “yes” or - even worse - at some point losing patience and suddenly blurting out criticism.

6 tips for better nagging

But sometimes nagging can also point out perspectives, give food for thought and actually improve something. Only Nörgler should observe a few rules of the game - otherwise they are very fast as a spoilsport and fly out:

  1. Don't nag in hiding. If you have something to criticize, say it openly and factually, but without being offensive. So not something like: "Actually you could ..." - the other person doesn't understand that and is then annoyed about what you really meant ... "
  2. Get straight to the point, avoid small-talk, because that is ambiguous and dishonest.
  3. Be sure to talk alone with the person in question so that they do not appear in front of others.
  4. Do not blasphemy on others - that always comes out and gives only bad blood.
  5. Avoid accusations and generalizations such as “Why do you have to immer: just… “, but stay matter-of-fact.
  6. Signal your good intentions. Offer approaches to solving the problem. This shows an honest interest in the person / thing and that you have kept thinking.

    And most importantly, make sure that praise and criticism are at least balanced with your colleagues. Better is more praise. Otherwise the one or the other makes somehow tight and nothing goes.
