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.

Weaknesses:

*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.

Strengths:

*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.

ChicoryCreek:  

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. 😉

Weaknesses:

– 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. 

Strengths:

– 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.
