    in another thread, we looked at what makes individual people exceptional, but what are your worst traits?

    i will start

    my worst trait ever is that i have too many interests and it makes it hard for me to master anything...i changed majors in undergraduate school twice, in graduate school three times...i was in love with playing electric lead guitar and only got so far in ten years, then switched to acoustic guitar/songwriting for a few years, and now for the past few years, i am enamored with jazz, and maybe not guitar since every instrument sounds better in jazz than guitar does to me in that musical context...i love model building and just as i got to really learn the plastic type, i go and switch to wooden models and i have to start over again...and the list goes on

    i may just be a beginner or advanced beginner at best my whole life

    i admire the lifelong fisherman, dancer, computer programmer, writer, or whatever and i am in awe of people who can do someting for a long time and never get bored and thus achieve mastery of their subject

    i'm spoiled i like having the best, and i'm used to higher things... i was 18 when i got my first car...a 04 lexus ES330 with nav/ML audio :eek:
    i have a sharp tongue which can be good at time i guess.....
    i'm LD so learning stuff is different, but i guess its a good thing cause it helped me become stronger and not give up easily....

    That can also be an amazing tool for those times you need to slice your food and there is not a knife in sight.

    I always bite off more than I can chew. Like trying to answer the questions posed by both of these threads when I'm already up late, busy with another project.

    Devious, arrogant, condescending, impatient, emotionally distant, intolerant, bossy...

    I would not have guessed from reading your posts... but maybe just a little bit™

    Probably my best and worst trait is that I am a perfectionist at heart but it drives me so insane that I rarely start anything.

    Completely offtopic but I just noticed that the Think Different poem has been taken down from Apple.com. What a shame.

    Hand stands at the most inappropriate times. It's almost Acrobatic Tourettes Syndrome™ and the real victims are the family members and the taxpayer (many broken light fittings). :(

    A remarkably forthright self-assessment of the worst of Blue Velvet.

    I worry about the little things that don't matter and the big things I can't change anyway too much. At least I'm told these are bad traits, personally I'd disagree.

    For example I hate people who litter or park badly and has been known to point these failings out to the people and get threatened and assaulted for my community spirit. The little things.

    I'd like to see some government level commitment to things like renewable energy and everyone I know agrees but will do nothing about it 'cause 'they' won't listen to 'us'. If everyone I know is 'us' who are 'they' and why can't we make them listen? The big things.

    They're probably my main two as well. Notice too how I quoted someone else rather than type my own, thus emphasising my incredible bone-idleness. :p

    Massive and long lasting bouts of crippling depression. It's freaking nasty, one day I'm fine and then the next day I wake up and can't get out of bed.

    Arrogance.
    Feigned superiority as a mask for being totally ****-scared.
    Shyness.

    I'll go with these four: 1. Not readily forgiving ... 2. occasional procrastinator ... 3. setting the bar high for co-workers ... 4. not that much of a socializer.

    i Procrastinate.
    i am a perfectionist. so it takes me longer to comeplete a project than it could/should because i start over and over and over to get it right.
    i don't take as good care of myself as i should.

    My greatest weakness is that I care too much... :rolleyes:

    And yet you typed an explanation that is 6 times longer than the quote:D

    I am a horrible procrastinator, but while I'm procrastinating, I accomplish wonderous feats (the house always gets its cleanest when I have stuff due).

    I'm gullible, I take a lot of crap from people, I make decisions too quickly without thinking them through, I have champagne taste on a beer budget, I'm stubborn, I follow my heart instead of my head.

    I get attached to people too easily and then spend my time worrying that they'll leave me. I'm horribly shy, to the point where I can barely say hello to someone walking past me. I can be rather lazy at times.
