What are your three greatest strengths and three greatest weaknesses?

Asked by BoBo1946 (15300points) July 29th, 2010

My strengths are: 1) I never quit. 2) love people 3) never antimidated

Weaknesses are: 1) self-centered 2) hard on myself 3) implusive occasionally

The one that i really try to improve on is being self-centered. Life’s “hard knocks” has changed me in this area, but there is more work to be done to have a better product.

Strengths: 1) hmmmm… 2) hmmmm again… 3) and more hmmmm’ing….

Weaknesses: 1) Selfish 2) Irresponsible 3) Communication 4) not being able to recognise I have any strengths…. I could go on forever!

Didn’t think that question would be so hard to answer. I shall have to go away tonight and ponder this. I have plenty of good points, and i’m a nice person (says me) – but wouldn’t consider any of my traits as a strength, I dont think.

My strengths: ability to keep secrets, good at math, and I’m a pretty good listener
My weaknesses: I can’t stand to see animals abused, I’m too quiet at times, and I have to have my McDonald’s sweet ice tea fix everyday and will drive miles to get one

@Flowergurl You cant stand to see animals abused – help me understand why you see that as a weakness? To care for other animals I see as a strength.

There was some bloke on the radio today (the conversation was about the possible banning of spanish bullfighting) who stated that he didn’t care what happened to the bull, as it was only an animal.
That sort of attitude I consider a weakness.

I guess that I should have also included neglected and abandoned animals in that sentence. Right now I’m taking care of four kittens that were dropped off our office, and at home I’ve got two ducklings that we left behind by their mother. Last year a mother deer abandoned her three week old twin fawns in our yard, and we watched over them until she came back two weeks later. If someone has not told you yet – welcome to Fluther!

1. Understanding. Really helps figuring out problems from different angles. Drives my mother nuts sometimes.
2. Strong sense of self. Very helpful when the crappy feelings come around.
3. Self reliance. I’m very proud that I’m able to get things done for myself.

1. Social skills. They’re under-developed and it hinders myself in group situations.
2. Impulsive. Once I get an idea in my head, it stays there until I do something about it. Sometimes it’s not always possible to get it done.
3. Inability to always sense danger. I consider this both a strength and weakness. Mostly as a weakness as it’s not really a good thing. It does make me brave when I need it, though.

1. I’m very forgiving and understanding.

2. I’m a great listener.

3. I’d give just about anything, up to my life, in defense of another human being who was suffering or being hurt.


1. I’m a very anxious and paranoid individual.

2. I can be very, very dark.

3. I have a really bad habit of lying…. Alot. Sometimes for no real reason.

@Dutchess_III Show off! 60 words per minute.Humpf!
@BoBo1946 WHO ME? Lol I am very laid back…. Very

Dutchess_III's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard… do you know why you lie? I’ve never heard anyone confess to that.

@Frenchfry Snicker!!

BoBo1946's avatar

@Frenchfry loll…you are hoot girl! @Dutchess_III keep an eye on her!

See you guys and girls later!

TexasDude's avatar

@Dutchess_III, well I’m a lot better about it now than I was. I was in a really bad relationship for a long time, and I would have to lie to her to keep her from going apeshit. It wasn’t about serious stuff, she would go absolutely crazy if I wasn’t with her 24 hours a day, so when I wanted alone time, I’d have to tell her I was sick or something because the fact that I just wanted to be alone was unacceptable and would lead to her screaming at me. It became a habit out of a necessity and was not a cause for the screwed up relationship, but a side effect.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Don’t you hate it when you have to lie about super-innocent stuff just to keep the peace??

misstrikcy's avatar

Ooh..! I think I’ve thought of a strength… maybe.
I’m not a bitch, and I dont gossip.

Grasping at straws perhaps..?

TexasDude's avatar

@Dutchess_III, yes. It was ridiculous. I shouldn’t have felt like I had to, but it was the only way to ever get a minute of alone time without being endlessly questioned or berated. Our relationship was fundamentally flawed.
