What is the meaning of being critical?

Being 'critical' does not mean just being negative, or pointing out what is wrong about something. At masters level, 'critical' means “Fully informed, capable of supporting in-depth analysis and assessment” (Scottish credit and qualifications framework, level descriptors).

Similarly, it is asked, what are self critical thoughts?

Examples of Self-Criticism. Self-criticism is typically experienced as negative internal thoughts about one's self or, more specifically, about one's behaviors or attributes. When self-critical thoughts apply broadly rather than focus on a particular behavior, they may be more likely to impact well-being negatively.
