Weakness: I’m incredibly socially awkward when I meet new people. I have a hard time coming up with things to talk about with people I don’t have anything in common with, so I come off like I don’t like people because I don’t make conversation well. It doesn’t help that most days I only interact with my nerdy scientist coworkers.

Strength: I’m funny, easy going and generous with people that I know.

ChicoryCreek:   Ooh, this is fun!



*I can be jealous, and it’s hard for me to trust people.

*I can really hold a grudge if someone wrongs me.

*I’m anxious and neurotic.

*I’m very, very cheap.

*I can be quite vain sometimes.


*I’m the most faithful, loyal partner you’ll ever meet.

*I love animals and do all I can to help them.

*I can be very intuitive – I can sense when someone’s upset, and try to cheer them up.

*I’m punctual and precise.

*I’m very low-key and mellow.

What I don’t like: I procrastinate – A LOT!  I can be super lazy, I hate doing chores and hate cooking.  I’m a horrible wife in that sense lol.  I also tend to be snippy with my mom, sister and husband if I’m hangry – they’re the only ones I act like that to though of course.

What I love about myself: Super compassionate – I want to help every single person I see.  If I pass a stranded motorist, I worry about them for the rest of the day.  Did they make it home okay?  Did someone stop and help?  (I don’t stop because I have no clue about cars and if I’m not with DH, I don’t feel comfortable pulling over by myself.)

I’m a go with the flow, easy-going type of person.  I don’t take myself seriously at all. I’m pretty low maintainence.

I’m generous.  I’m a good friend.  I try to help anyone who needs it.  I’m loyal. I can take a joke.  I’m funny (maybe only to myself sometimes though lol)

Worst is that I don’t take criticism well, tend to be a perfectionist and I’m a complete worrier. I’ll worry about the most ridiculous things. Working on each of those.

Best is that I’m generally a low maintenance, go with the flow type of person.

ChicoryCreek:  Cool thread!

My Weaknesses: 

-I’m not very ambitious in terms of career/achievement. I guess you could say lazy, I just don’t have that “drive” that some people seem to have.

-I am messy. I try so hard to put things back after I use them, but I can never keep it together for very long. 

-I am a people pleaser. This sounds like one of those humble brags, but it isn’t. Basically I have a tendency to just go with what other peope want- BUT then I get bitter about it later. 

-I expect people to be more perceptive than they are. I often won’t say what I want or need, because I think people will pick up on it and anticipate me (the way that I try to do with them)- usually they don’t and then I get upset. In reality, they just have no idea that anything’s wrong- it’s very hard for me to be assertive, and that’s not fair to others. 

My Strengths-

-I am calm in a crisis. House on fire? Get robbed? Boyfriend cheated? Got fired? I’m the friend you call. 

-I’m the listener/advice giver of my group of friends. Everyone asks me for advice when it comes to tough stuff. I think it’s because I’m good at remaining fairly objective about a situation and giving my honest insight. 

-I’m tough. My friends joke that in a post-apocolytic scenario I’d be the one to survive. They are probably correct. 

-I am very empathetic, almost telephathically so. I know this sounds strange, but I feel like I actually “feel” what other people around me are feeling. If someone is uncomfortable, I seem to notice long before anyone else. When someone is hurting or in pain, I really feel it. I think this is a strength because it makes it much easier for me to be forgiving and understanding of people who are very different from me.

My love of giving touches upon both the lightest and darkest aspects of my character.  When I am being ill-dignified, I give (usually in the material sense, but sometimes in other senses) as part of a plan of manipulation that will allow me to exert control over a situation, since I am by nature guarded and prefer to be in control of as much of my environment (including those in it) as possible in order to secure my defenses.  However, when I am in my dignity, I give unreservedly and show a very high capacity for mercy, which allows me to provide comfort to people who are experiencing profound distress, emotional or physical.

ChicoryCreek:  Haha, that’s so funny! I’m a lot better than I used to be, but I still have those moments when the conversation goes to something I have no input about. My FI will sometimes ask me after why I wasn’t talking and I’m like, “because all you were talking about was working on cars!” This happens often since my FI and his friends are really into cars so I have absolutely nothing to talk about when they’re together!

Oooh, I like this. Good for self reflection. 😉


– I am quick to dislike people, I really don’t give them enough of a chance. BUT that’s because I am a really good judge of character. If I don’t like you- it’s probably because I’m picking up on something I don’t like. 

– I am messy as hell, drives FI cray.

– I’m always late. Procrastinator. Omg. 


– I have MAJOR maternal instincts. 

– I’m a good teacher. 

– and hella good baking skillz.

I’m going to start with the good stuff…

Awesome-Sauce: I’m loyal to a fault. I would do just about anything for my close friends/family and would forgive them almost any infraction; however, once that line is crossed, there’s no coming back. Also, I’m a great problem-solver (logical, concise, and a tad obsessive).

Needs-Improvement: I tend to be impatient with individuals who display blatant incompetence (refusing to make any effort) or are intentionally obtuse and I get rather short/direct with them (which people interpret as upset). I really have to watch my tone since I work in HR (probably not the best career choice for me, oops!)

My strengths are that I am caring, creative, smart, loyal, and hard-working. My weaknesses are that I am moody, disorganized, often shy, and I have a hard time letting go of things and getting past them.
