    Probably a misleading title, but to continue on a similar theme as the "What makes your blood boil" and "What makes you happy" threads, what do you dislike about yourself? What are your bad habits, or the things you do that you know annoy the hell out of people but you just can't stop doing them?

    I'd start with a few of my own, but I'm shy :eek:.

    On second thought, make that my character flaw #1... Along with my tendency to get beet red in the face whenever all the attention is on me.

    In addition to your bad habits and personality deficits, what do you consider your best attribute?

    2 things bug me..

    I'm too willing to take people at their word, and I have Crohn's Disease.

    I think Jesus is a nice myth.

    I'm too nice to people and to be honest I need to loose a few pounds.

    Psychologically this thread could help people face there emotions and downfalls. A+. ;)

    I bite my nails
    I am a bit of a slacker (ie. procrastinate)
    I am overconfident at times
    I am a little overweight
    I am a compulsive technology buyer and subsequently seller - Gadgets and Macs are my weakness!

    The list goes on, but I am totally happy with what I have done so far in life so despite my shortcomings, I will continue to live life at its fullest. :D

    One of my testies are quite a bit larger than the other two, causing me considerable constant pain, and often resulting in crankiness.

    Cool, glad you like the thread Daveway. I thought it might spark some constructive self-criticism (and healthy boasting). :)

    I'll jump in now:

    -I'm also way too nice to people and let them basically walk all over me. Assertiveness is just not "me".
    - I have a bad habit of leaving my towel on the floor of the locker room after showering at the gym. Shameful.
    - I'm extremely, inexplicibly anal when it comes to the organization inside my refrigerator, of all things... I'm constantly shifting things around and everything has to be in the right spot. Drives my boyfriend up the wall.
    - I have a bad habit of rarely cleaning my shower, although the rest of my bathroom is always scoured regularly.

    As for my strong points, I'm a pretty good cook, a decent writer, and I can haul a 35-lb. pack on my back over mountainous terrain (and actually enjoy it). Oh yeah, and I'm very nice to people! :) (It can be a good thing, too.)

    I really hate it when slackers are rewarded for their slackerness and the hard workers get nothing but ****!

    And i'm terribly addicted to right clicking and "show package contents" on almost everything i come across on my mac! :D

    :eek::eek::eek: you have 3? :eek::eek::eek:

    my biggest flaws are: being a complete ******* when working on a group project at school, i'm really bossy, i'm a spoiled brat, i'm very overweight, and i watch entirely too much tv. oh, and one of my balls is also about twice the size of the other, although i only have two. doesn't hurt though. i also love pirating stuff; sometimes ill just find something illegal, download it, then delete it from my hard drive because it feels good just to download illegal things.

    I've got a pretty annoying heart condition. :(

    But perhaps one of my biggest downfalls is how much time I spend on these forums. ;)

    I trust people too much, making me very gullible at times. I also have tend to be anal about social interaction, often revisiting a past encounter over and over in my mind, searching for even the most minor of mistakes.

    On the brighter side of myself, i've got alot of talent for film, photography, and music. I notice things many others don't, whether its something in the distance, a faint sound, or merely appreciating the beauty of a starlit sky. This is a power, and I intend on sharing my vision with those around me.

    I am a pessimist...Mr Murphy does not like me at all
    If something can go wrong I have to plan on it going wrong, and it generally does go wrong plus extra stuff that no one sane could plan for.
    I dont like most people, and teen/tween girls annoy the hell out of me
    Hate babies and little kids
    I am intolerant of intolerant people...
    I get migraines that require hospitalization more than 3 times a month
    and I keep breaking bones and tearing ligaments/tendons, I have broken virtually every bone in my body except any of the long bones...

    On the good side I am extremely loyal, and when people need someone they can trust they come to me. Animals like me. I am good with computers. I can talk in front of large groups and enjoy it.
    My IQ is above normal. I have a weird sense of humour.
    I have the normal number of fingers and toes. I am a very good cook.
    and thats about all the good stuff...

    • I bite my nails.
    • I can be incredibly lazy if I allow myself.
    • I can be very unassertive.
    • I have a very poor memory.
    • When I'm writing emails or posts, I spend way too much time drafting and rewriting them through (although you wouldn't guess by the finished results). :D

    I'm sarcastic.
    I'm impatient

    I'm also epileptic which other people seem to think of as a bad thing, but what do they know.

    I keep trying, but every time I go to do it I pass by the mall and end up going to the Apple store, forgetting completely about why I was going to the school in the first place.

    Seriously though the only mood altering drug I'd take is caffeine.

    I make to many fart and penis jokes
    I can't spell for ****
    I am very lazy when it comes to stuff I don't like doing
    I am very opinionated and am too fast to push it on people
    I hold grudges
    I cannot not put my political views aside when I meet someone
    I could loose a few pounds
    I hate most of my coworkers, again becuase of there/my political views
    I listen to NPR way too much
    I use to and too in the wrong places

    I am trying to work on a few of these. Its kind of a project of mine to be a better person.
