What are some of your biggest flaws?

Be honest. For me...

  • Can be a bit of a pushover (I put other peoples' needs before mine), although I am getting better at being more assertive and aggressive when needed.
  • Grade A Overanalyzer. There will often be times where I literally cannot get out of my own head.
  • Grade A Procrastinator
  • I can't for the life of me seem to be able to keep a pair of earphones for any longer than a month until I lose them -_-
All I can think of for now. Will add more if anything else comes up.

Haha, mine are EXACTLY these. I'm huge on overanalysing which apparently make people think I'm anxious. I just enjoy it most of the times

Your's aren't even that bad, OP

Mine would be:

- Requires a lot of reassurance in form of compliments (not about appearance). Defensive when criticized. Needs to feel important and prioritized.

- Anxious. Tends to catastrophize. Will most likely think the worst. Overly sensitive due to anxiety.

- Unfocused. Can never keep up with one interest or activity for too long. Lots of talents but never reaches a master level at anything. Loads of ideas, no will to persevere.

- Avoidant. Will delay dealing with something unpleasant, like filling in the declaration of taxes, or a boring school project. Gets in a lot of trouble because of it.

- Easily irritated. Can't be among people for too long. Needs to be left alone often. Hates noise and having music or radio on. Can be bitchy.

Some of them...

Eh...I'm moody like a woman sometimes....Other than that, I tend to not put the seat up when I take a leak, trusting that my aim is pretty good...Not always, though....

TFY

I can be quite arrogant at times. One of my employees devised, semi-seriously, a point system to measure when I acted arrogantly or condescendingly.

I have the same problem. The best thing you can do to take care of that is to just do it even if your brain tells you otherwise. Learning any new task is gonna be hard, challenging and *not fun* for the beginning stages. Once you get past that you'll be solid. I think the problem is we compare ourselves to all the experts of whatever skill domain we want to learn and so we get unmotivated and feel challenged essentially choosing not to act on it because "we'll never be as good as that guy." Some people gotta work harder to achieve certain skills sadly. Natural talent is a real thing *points to Mozart*.

I been told I overly blurt out what I shouldnt.

Funny. I start things I dont finish, but I have so many hobbies. I take breaks between them so I dont get bored.

I like to go-go-go. On my next annual physical I will ask my Dr. Maybe I have ADD or something.

I meant I hate it when it's on speakers. I'm a musician and can't mindlessly consume music in form of a background etc. I will only have it on when I sit down and actively listen to it, mostly alone and with my headphones on. Background music is noise to me and I prefer complete silence as my background. Had partners who would have loud music on all the time and it would drive me mad to the point of having fights about it.

Might be weird to some
