Character Flaws?

Something like this was on WTAworld, but who cares about that place anyhow ;) :p

I'm all about self analysis, and was interested in discussion our character flaws, and ways we try to work on them :)

Of course flaws are great - they are what make us unique. But some have negative side effects that we could do without ;)

Since its my thread, I'll go first :D


1) I'm very opinionated. I have an opinion on everthing, even a lot of things that I dont know about (in those cases i'm more interested in fishing opinions from others so that I can learn from them). However this of course, sometimes rubs people the wrong way. Sometimes some opinions should just be kept to yourself ;)
For example, my freind from home doesn't REALLY need to know that she snores so loud that she keeps me up all night :rolleyes:
I can also come across as if I'm attacking people who don't agree with me, which is actually usually very far from the truth. I'm jsut agressive :o

2) I sort of have an invincibility front. Of course, everyone knows its bullshit ;) But i like to let on that nothing bothers me, I dont need anyone, I don't care what anyone thinks, etc etc. But I'm only 20, and I'm not quite that secure yet. In the "real world" I sort of rub some peopel the wrong way, with the whole "I dont care what the hell you think" attitude - some see it as disrespectful. It wouldn't kill me to soften up.

3) I'm too much of a smart ass. I see a joke in almost everything. Even things that aren't funny in the least. In fact I seem to recall cracking a George Bush joke in some thread on wtaworld that was talking about all these people that died :sad: I can be QUITE tacky when I'm not thinking :rolleyes:
Of course sometimes this is good :D I just need to watch myself ;)



As I said, all of those flaws have some good, but the ycan be negative.

I rub a LOT of people the wrong way :sad:

Anyhow, anyone else care to pick themselves apart:D ?

OMG, where do I start?! :eek:

I share Rebecca's character flaw # 1. I can't stand it if people tell me I'm not allowed to have an opinion of something or have no right to discuss. It triggers an immediate reflex response and before I know what's happening I get into a heated arguement. It would help if I could relate my opinion about opinions in a calmer, more philosophical way, but alas!

Character flaw # 2 is directly related to # 1. I have anger managment issues. I have too many triggers and snap way too fast, but I also calm down quickly and realise I overreacted again. The only positive thing about this trigger-happiness is that it is a definite lesson and I will always have many opportunities to practice the art of forbearance. :angel:

3. I have difficulties relating my real personality to others. Hence some people think I'm too cold, while others believe I'm too emotional and a bit insane. It's all too confusing. :confused:

4. Most of the time I'm pretty optimistic, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by pessimism and am too hard on myself. Sometimes I even believe that nobody loves me :o, but most of the time I know that's stupid. But that just reminds me that I have to be more open and let people into my heart. I hate to be vulnerable, but there's no way around it in human interaction.

5. I could use more flexibility. I hate it when things don't proceed according to my plans.

1. I dont make plans for longer than today. :o
2. I have an opinion on everything, and Im strongly inclined to disagree. :p :o :o
3. Im closed all to myself, and Im like a nut to crack if you want to come into my world. :o :o :o
4. I trust too much in myself and yet I am totally hard on myself. Everything has to be perfect. :( :o :o :o :o
Ok, enough for today.

1. I'm too sensitive. Some of you posters know that already. But I can't help it. I cry over many issues. I get upset very easily. *sigh* dumb bullcrap.

2. I worry too much. I worry for myself a lot. I even worry for other people. Worry worry worry. :rolleyes:

3. I care about too many things that I shouldn't care about. But I'm learning to stop that........and some people think I'm becoming cold-hearted because of that, :rolleyes:

4. I'm too open. I will give opinions to most issues. I will share anything and everything about me, since I feel that I'm proud of what I did, and I can share my experiences with others. But it can be annoying. I'm trying to change, people!!! ;)

5. I can be sarcastic and obnoxious. Then act like a drama queen when things aren't going right. I do that when I'm bored and angry. But some people are annoyed by it. Especially older people. :rolleyes:

6. I flirt, a bit. I don't do that much in real life. I just do it when I'm bored online. I never really mean it seriously.

7. I try to be perfect, and it doesn't work. But I still try doing that, since I'm so used to getting every single little detail perfect before presenting it. And I get angry and pissed when it isn't perfect.


and there's a lot more, I'll get back to ya after the date.

Ok, my turn, hehehe...

1) I'm very open-minded. The only thing I'm not open-minded about is closed-minded people like racists, etc. I also respect everyone's way of life and opinions (well, most of the time :p)

2) I'm very competitive. I WAS also very competitive at school, but that's long ago, now school is not important anymore for me, just an annoying phase of life. But in sports, I always want to win. I also don't take losing like something bad, I try to learn from it.

3) Now something bad (I've searched long to find this :p;))
When I'm with people who are for example more popular than me, I don't always dare to say my opinion. With people I know well and friends, I'm very talkative, but not with strangers or so...

I'll probably think of something else, so I'll be back :D

2ace2 - don't worry, number three will get better with time :) After a while those *cool* people will be um, hehe *less* cool- and they will come flocking for your opinion ;)

I speak from experience :p

2ace2
08-15-2002, 10:24 PM
But the problem is, they like me because I don't say my opinion. So I actually belong with them, but I don't feel good about it. I mean, why do I hang out with these people if I can't even say my opinion.
Hey, this thread helped me to solve the problem: I think I'm going to stick with my real friends instead of trying to be as popular as possible!
Thanks Reb! :kiss:

2ace2 - you should surround yourself with those who you like being around :) LIke you already decided.

There is no shame in hanging with a different crowd every now and then, just to mix things up a little bit.

But there is no need to try and be freinds with people when i requires a good amount of effort :o

Good luck!

Ok lets see erm...
1. I'm way too competitive. I have a tendency to get very upset when I'm losing or I'm doing something that I feel is not to the best of my ability. People don't like to play soccer with me because I tend to get physical :o
2. I have anger managment problems. I can snap easily at people. It can be for a really stupid reason too.
3. I have troubles saying I'm sorry even though I am. People think that I'm never sorry even when I am. I have a problem saying it outright... or I make it sound sarcastic.
4. I have mood shifts every 5 seconds. Anything can set me off :o I can be very loud, quiet, sad, happy, etc.
5. I'm lazy. I don't plan at all, and I really don't do much work around the house.
6. 2ace2 :wavey: I have the same problem as you when it comes to number 3 *sigh*
7. People think I'm two faced sometimes when I try to make connections between two sides. I'm really not though, but I just make myself come off that way because it seems as though I'm doing it for my own personal gain.
8. Oh yeah and I have a tendency to come off as an idiot... well maybe I am one.

Damn when I read that over, I'm not liking myself at all :o

1. I'm Lazy
2. I'm Shy
3. I'm Jaded/Negative
4. I mumble sometimes when I talk to ppl not close to me
5. It's hard to make friends for me:sad:...not because of my personality, just because I find it hard and I'm shy.
6. I'm picky when it comes to girls, also shy...probably thats why I still don't have a gf:rolleyes:

Hmm...I'll think of more later:p
