"People strong in Feedback are masters of giving messages that will stick for others and help them to develop. They know that negative feedback is like Velcro (it sticks), whereas positive feedback is more akin to Teflon (it slides off us). To counter this, they will have developed their own techniques to ensure their positive feedback hits the mark, allowing people to enhance their confidence as they develop their ability."
"I really appreciate your feedback. Negative feedback is like a pain. It's your friend telling you something goes wrong with particular part of your body or some organ inside it. But if you want brain to react on your message please make sure brain has a chance to see your message delivered "
"If you or anyone you know has ever dealt with EBAY, you know that getting a negative feedback is like having to wear the scarlett letter. Here's the events that lead up to this awful tragedy,lol."
"So negative feedback is like what happens in a well-designed sailboat. If you're out on a sailboat and you let go of all the control lines, let go of the lines that position the sails and you
let go of the rudder what's going to happen is that a well designed sailboat is going to point itself up into the wind. Now that may feel a little bit rocky depending on what the current is
but it is actually the safest place to be if you doing know what you're doing "
"Positive feedback is like bass, inefficiently heard. Negative feedback is like guitar, heard all too efficiently. To be as negative as you are positive is like a guitarist matching wattage with us bassists. A guitarist with a 500 watt amp would be deafening and anyone who tries to maintain an equal balance between discouragement and encouragement can be deafeningly discouraging."
"This action of negative feedback is like measuring a cup of milk. You measure it, but pour too much, so you take some out, but you take too much out, and you constantly go above and below the set point."
"So feedback you get in the microphone at a concert is positive feedback. Negative feedback is like that of a thermostat which tends to stabilise something around some path. So you may wish to use different terminology - though the downside to that is that the terms you're using are common usage. "
"Negative feedback is like a police force. A nosy, strong, and merciless police force is desirable and necessary when you live in a crime-ridden city; whereas surveillance, 44 magnums, and tough-guy attitudes are unwanted and unneeded when you live in an honest, respectful, and peace-loving hamlet. Tubes just happen to be such good audio citizens (because they hold their own internal feedback mechanism) that we seldom need to hammer and twist their output into line in a heavy-handed manner."
