Say something about yourself that is not complimentary
« on: June 13, 2021, 11:03:06 PM »
There are bits of us that our inner self knows exist, but bristle when it is pointed out by others or at the very least, move us to deflect attention away from the perceived attack and swing momentum towards our assailant.
If you were going to point out something that you know exists that you accept as an endearing quality in you, but as character flaw when you witness it in someone else....
What would it be ?
I have some that I know are there, but I think I can usually keep masked.
I could go first, but unlike me Ill try as long as I can not to talk about myself...(theres one..)
But heres a starter.
Anyone here as a thought experiment, is being offered the chance to point out a flaw that they can see in me, based on the level that they know me and I will not offer any rebuttal, even if I think my argument is sound...
I do not have ANY hidden agenda..(I respect Ncdan too much...)
Tell me yours or point out mine, I will not reciprocate

I can joke about my weight. No one else can. Not do I tolerate criticism from others about my weight.

U r ​two judgemental about speling and grammer?

My biggest fault is I have a perception about how other feel about my actions or that they are judging me. I try not to offend others but have found it is always possible to offend someone. I have typed this out about half a dozen times as I would not normally respond, so people won't judge me. But I decided to take it a sign and state it publicly.

I don't like it when others point out my spotty memory, or lack of attention and focus.  Luckily they, and whatever the hell they were talking about are soon forgotten.

I'll reply to this thread later when I have time.....

So many choices.....  The easy answer is ask my ex-wives.  Pretty sure they could quickly cover all of my flaws and shortcomings..

"If you were going to point out something that you know exists that you accept as an endearing quality in you, but as character flaw when you witness it in someone else.... What would it be?"

When someone tells me about a situation they are experiencing, I automatically try to "solve the problem". It's my default approach to listening; try to solve the problem as it is presented. I think it's an endearing quality, but I've been told that it's annoying... sometimes the speaker wants you to acknowledge how the situation is making them feel, not try to solve the problem for them.

Also, my farts are funny no matter the situation. Other people's flatulence is gross.

If the barn was on fire and I only had time to push one out, itd be the Norge.
Certainly in my case, the history has a lot to do with it, but to me my Norge just seems special and not possible to replicate.

Same here.  I call it as I see/hear it. 

And I change my mind/plans as situations change, confusing others.

People do like to see me come and go. They do seek me out for for help and advise.  I do have have self actualization and comfortable with who I am.
