What Are Your Faults

This was brought up in another thread, and as a joke I started to answer...then I decided I'd do it more seriously.

So.....

What are your faults?

1. I'm lazy
2. I need to have more balance in my life
3. I have unrealistically high expectations
4. I am very critical of people
5. I have poor taste in women I date
6. Sometimes I have a hard time making decisions

My biggest fault is that I'm a workaholic. Sometimes I just work too much trying to get my projects done and help the company be successful.

So, did I get the job?

I procrastinate.

I have a low threshold for BS (which can be good, or it can be bad when you tend to shut other people out too quickly).

I am sometimes too trusting (though getting screwed over in the past has taken care of that for the most part).

I am too work oriented...it would probably be helpful if I could learn to relax more and be more open.

I am set in my ways.

I don't realize my full potential (which is why I guess I work in an office clerical position when I have other talents wasting away, like the ability to draw and create artwork.)

I'm extremely narcissistic. I could go hours staring at the mirror with great admiration.

So my fault really is that I am just too damn perfect.

I'm too impatient.
I try to hold onto things too long.
I tend to hold grudges.
It's not easy for me to say I'm sorry.
I may not always take responsibility for things that are my fault.
I often think about how things would be different if I'd made different choices in my past.

--- Thank you, pedagogue, for starting this thread. Seriously..

I'm distrustful, cynical, and pessimistic.
I'm pretty damn insensitive.
I can get really lazy when it comes to my personal time.

I was just kidding.

My actual faults would be more along the lines of being easily frustrated by morans in my field, belittling people who suck, and avoiding conflict with people who suck.

So really, my faults are caused by people who suck. We get rid of them, and I am doing fine.

My fault is that I can't begin to name all my faults.

and probably that I'm too hard on myself.

1) Way too sensitive
2) Believe I have social and psychology issues at times that upset me way too much then they should.Which makes me a grumpy old herbit in his 30s.
3)All or nothing with me. I either dont bother or go absolutely crazy and expect results very swiftly. Abit of patience and riding the middle would go long way for me but I never seem to be able do that for long.
4) Get frustrated too quickly at times with trying learn things with whole LD I sometimes need relearn something dozen times before I get the core of it.
5) Get abit hairy and mean during full moon. I also sometimes wake up in morning naked and in strange places.

1) Distrustful, cynical, and pessimistic. (I stole this but all three are true)
2) Perfectionist and neat freak, I have zero tolerance for those who are not. I think workaholic would also fit in here.
3) Judgmental about the appearances of others.
4) Overly blunt.
5) Impatient, I like immediate results.
6) Materialistic, I love labels and other pretty things.
7) Intellectual and socioeconomic snob.
9) Narcissistic.

* I'm not good about keeping in contact with loved ones. Life just has a way of flying by. If distance is a factor, it's even worse. I would say taking people for granted also fits under this.
* I'm easily distracted. (no wonder I don't call - that shiny thing made me forget!)
* I can be blunt or hurtful without even realizing it. It's often hours later that something else makes me realize "hey, they might have thought that comment earlier was insensitive!" I'm just not easily offended, so I don't think through things all that much.
* I have no trouble making decisions, but sometimes I make them too fast and without considering repurcussions.
* I like to be lazy as well.
* edit: I forgot, I'm also impatient everyone else is supposed to make decisions as fast as I do and regret 50% like me as well
