What's your worst quality? One that you don't like about yourself, even hate. But you acknowledge?

Mine is I probably have a tenancy to (for the majority of time) to be quite understanding about others predicaments. Then I sort of get tired of being so 'understanding' all the time them don't give a shit about other people for a while.

I'm way too much of a pushover. People can take advantage of me every now and then because I have trouble saying no. I hate it.

Well, I seem to carry some sort of 'embarrassment aura' around me, and whenever I really do, in fact try to so******e, I just happen to mess up conversations. I also have some problem with my eyes, which can make them water, whenever I become sort of self-conscious. I really hate it when everyone just thinks I'm crying, and then my face gets all heated up, and I feel myself getting uncomfortable by the second... well, all I have to do to prevent that, is to avoid thoughts related to self consciousness.

And that's very hard in a conversation.

Maybe cynicism. I easily assume the worst of other people (immediately judging me negatively, being friendly but *******s behind my back, etc).

That's pretty much me as well. Though, greatly lacking in confidence is the one worst quality I tend to be quite open about. But most mistake it for modesty or me being humble.

Exactly, I'm open about my lack of confidence too! For instance I recently told my co-worker to clean something and they dismissed me by saying all I needed was a wet cloth to get the stains out. I could have yelled at them or threatened punishment but of course I didn't. They clocked out and I ended up doing it like always and after I clocked out I felt like sh_t. It's a familiar feeling...f_ck I hate this personality.

Same here. But then I am a big lad, and quite intimidating in terms of how I look, so I think that contributed to my lack of confidence. Oh, and being yelled at and berated to f*ck by my own family for being honest, or whenever I'd stand up for myself and refused to go along with their telling me what to do. For instance, my middle sister told me to eff off for telling her to calm down and stop yelling during an argument with our oldest sister, despite me not being the only one calling for her to calm down.

I feel the same way whenever I ask my family to help me with something and they just make excuses for themselves to be lazy, so they don't have to do anything. And I just end up getting pissed off at them, doing it myself. Then they'll have the nerve to come to me and apologise for not helping me when I asked.

I tend to easily get irritated by small things, and tend to focus on the negative side of things..

Having a hard time focusing . It has yet to stop me from doing anything in life but its just really frustrating when I'm trying to do research and I have a hard time paying attention. Im really starting to love doing research much more than I ever have but there are times where I dread it because I know i'll have to push myself harder to stay focused than most people would have to.


In general though, Iv really been narrowing down my weaknesses/flaws because the older I get the more I realize that some people will use EVERY last one of them to paint you in a negative light. Workplace politics can be brutal.


I feel like the more I progress into the rat race, the more I like to get away from people every chance I get.

My sympathies to you there because I know where you're coming from. I used to take pride in speed reading but now I'm lucky if I don't have to mentally trip on certain words and re-read sentences 5-6 times until they sound right in my head. Oh..and if that's not bad enough my neurological condition thinks it's funny to rear it's ugly head while I'm trying to read in public so I need to focus on the book and on not getting weird looks from total strangers.

Thanks , man! I know how that is, I usually can't stand reading in public for that very reason.

i'v really had to allocate my study time better recently while also deciding to narrow down on the amount of distractions and things I stress over. some subjects are more significant me, others are a bit less significant . I just try to remember what my sergeant would always tell us : "Pick your battles" . That phrase can be applied to ALOT of things in life.

id say like others and being a pushover. Not respecting myself - putting others first.

Also tendancy to drop into really low self esteem.

I can be stubborn and rigid.

I struggle to put in the extra effort to make a good thing great. I can see the path to accomplishing something, but I too often choose not to take it.

I don't take many risks, even ones that feel worth taking.

Major trust issues, assume the worst intentions from people or think them dumb or naive. In general I don't have a super positive view of any aspect of the world or the people in it anymore.

I'm sort of a **** at work sometimes, I dislike how treat people a lot. Makes me want to crawl into a hole and die, or at least keep myself from making other people less happy.

Sorry, I couldn't pick just one worst quality, indecision being another quality I am not too fond of.
