    How do you react to a bad news?

    We often come across bad news but our dealing with it is very different from man to man. I personally dislike  the reaction to be made public.

    No one likes hearing bad news. However, there isn't one particular reaction that would be appropriate for each case. The way you would react upon hearing about the death of a loved one wouldn't be the same reaction you would give if you were told that you had a bad evaluation at work.

    It really depends on the circumstance.

    Being a man of Restricted Affect, bad news is treated with the same equanimity as other kinds of news.

    It depends on how bad the bad news is. If you are asking about a public display, I tend to not show any reaction if I can help it until I am out of public view. There are times that I have to say something if I am being treated badly by someone in public. As I get older, I care less about what people think about me. When I am going to see these people again.

    Give it to me straight and upfront.

    I will pick up the pieces and put them in place later.

    Do not sugar coat anything, give me the bottom line first.

    With wisdom because you do not know all the details that produced the bad news.
