I think, crtic is a person who talks about negative aspect of someone/something.

e.g. My critics say that I wil never achieve my goal.

Am I right?

Similarly, I think there must be a word which talks about positive aspects of someone/something. Could you tell me that?

In short, please give me opposite word for `critic'.

    A critic is not always someone who is negative. Some people are film or book critics, and they make their living writing up shortened versions of why they like or dislike a book or movie.

    However, to criticize is most often seen as negative.

    The opposite of the negative nay-sayer would be an encourager. All those above also work.

    I copy the following from WR dictionary:

    a person who is professionally engaged in the analysis and interpretation of works of art

    A critic can like or dislike a piece of work/art, so I really don't think there's an opposite word for "critic".
