What is a Critical Spirit? How Can You Recognize It?

June Hunt starts this minibook with a definitions section where she explains what a "critical spirit" is and its relationship to verbal and emotional abuse. She covers key characteristics, such as constant nagging, harsh judgment, unreasonable strict standards, excessive negative attitudes, and more. In this section, she explains:

  • How to identify whether you or someone you know has a critical spirit
  • 10 common characteristics of a critical person that often goes undetected

Using the critical rebukes of Job's friends as models (Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar), June Hunt explains the 9 key differences between a caring and critical spirit. As you dig deeper into Job's story, you'll see common forms of criticism and find out how to know when a relationship is giving off unhealthy warning signs.

What Causes Someone to Be Overly Critical? Why Are They So Mean?

This minibook will shed light on what often causes people to develop a critical spirit. A critical spirit doesn't just appear out of nowhere—it is created and nurtured by past negative experiences. One of the most common causes of a critical spirit is growing up in a home where criticism was a constant, where parents modeled a critical spirit before their children.

A critical spirit is often developed under the pressure of continual criticism—from unanticipated anger to unwarranted attacks. June Hunt shares not only what these causes are, but shares how to heal from these childhood wounds.

How Should I Respond to Harsh Criticism? How Can I Stop Being Overly Critical?

The last section titled "Steps to Solution" gives you practical advice on how to confront and cope with overly critical people. It also explains how to break the cycle of criticism by developing a caring spirit.

Find out:

  • 8 steps to stop being overly critical
  • 8 ways to confront and cope with overly critical people
  • 9 keys to creating a caring heart
  • And much more!
