In the end, if even one of the many criticisms brings about an idea that may improve the product, it's all for the better.
Worse are those people in the meetings who tell you it should be this way or that way because it seems like this super basic physics factoid would be best that way... after you've done the experiments, collected data, and presented information that shows exactly why you're doing it the way you're showing just a few minutes ago when this guy had his nose buried in his laptop instead of listening.
