Well, OP, we have the exact same flaws. The details of how we came to have them probably differ, but as I read that I came to see myself. Anyway, it's nice knowing that I'm not the only one that can't do maths and has sleeping issues. Hell, I just started doing drama to build my confidence, and also cause I fucking love it. And I too fall in love too easily, like not crushes even and will bend over backwards to win the appraisal of pretty ladies but never actually, really talk to them. I'm confident around people I know, but I lose all words when I meet new people or have to talk to people I barely know. I failed my maths exams in a spectacular fashion. I also have pretty bad tinnitus, although just got it a few months ago after I was hit in the head, and black marks under my eyes from lack of sleep.

Wow, that was... Fun.

Well.. Hello me. Don't worry, Tinnitus gets a lot better the longer you have it (Or so I'm told. I've had it since birth so I can't really say. It's still a *****) and drama and acting really helps with things like confidence and public speaking so you have my full encouragement in that department! :)

1. I'm amazing
2. I'm amazing
3. I'm amazing
4. I'm amazing
5. Having flaws are for the weak

1. I'm too nice: My friends even say I should be more assertive cause people take advantage of me, and they have, and I've been trying to change that lately.

2. I have the attention span of a banana: I've reached the point in high school aka senior year where I just feel the urge to just STOP. My days consist of playing video games, having great concern in figuring out if their are any good movies this weekend, practicing for my future animating career, hanging out with my friends, working out like a boss, connecting with this one girl, procrastinating like a mofo, and then some. I have a C- in a lot of my classes. Personally I like to blame school these days for not being more motivating, but yeah it is my fault too.

3. I'm not very smart: I've never been good at math. English yes, and social studies... whats the point they repeat what you learned 2 years prior constantly. But if theres something I wish I was good at its distinguishing what a mole is in Chemistry without confusing it with the animal and I can never remember how many yards are in a mile. I'm afraid the only way I'll survive college at this point is through pure imagination and creativity, the only thing I'm a pro at. I get scared of the thought of that.

4. I forget A LOT: Genetically its a fact I got this psychotic forgetfulness from my dad. I only really forget things that are really important to remember. Its sad cause I've reached the point where if someone asks me to remember something I tell them not to trust me on it, ask someone else to, or I set an alarm or note on my phone just to remind myself. Ugh... thats just cringe worthy.

5. Indecisive: I literally need to be left alone for hours just to make a tough decision, sometimes I still screw something up, and that infuriates me. Some of the worst times is when I'm indecisive around people. When I have to make hard decisions around my friends and family, I never NEVER want to make them mad/sad. If theres anything I hate about deciding, its when the decision I make makes the other persons act negative towards me or others. I just want everyone to be happy. :'(

I'm a workaholic.
I over think.
I probably put too much value on my time.
I can't say no.
I never leave my comfort zone.

Alright. I can do this.

1. I take on too much responsibility - All the damn time. It's just the way I am.

2. I'm shy - Shy enough to the point that I can't even apologize to my former best friend. It's a long story, so I'm going to spare the details.

3. I listen too much - I don't speak up in conversations as much as I could or Should. I rarely participated in Class discussions. I listen more then I talk.

4. Body Image - Despite being rather Intelligent, I am Overweight, I am not muscular. I am basically the image a woman would find unattractive.

5. I have strong Opinions - To the point where not much can change them.

Only five? Make things harder why don't you.

1. I'm shy. Not exactly a rare one from what I've read but causes far too many problems. It more stems from the fact that if I speak to someone, I am downright terrified of upsetting them. Of course, I've never met them before so how do I know what are safe topics? Solution: Awkward silence.

2. I have little faith in myself to get things right. Seriously, speak to me in real life and most sentences will have something in them to hint I don't think I can do something. I rarely say "I will definitely do this" as a result.

3. I have a low opinion of myself. Thankfully, I've worked on making this helpful so I no longer get upset when someone insults me.

4. I'm fairly pessimistic about things. I try to hope for the best but I always seem to come back to, "but it probably won't work."

5. I get attached to things a little to easily. I think this has something to do with being shy but once I found something I like, I will tend to get a little protective over it and can get agitated very easily when there are problems.

Captcha: bad egg
Sure, rub it in why don't you.

1. I am brutally honest, though this is why I don't mind talking behind people's back because I usually say it to there face before or shortly after.

2.I can be repetitive, use the same joke or saying a few to many time's.

3.I have to dry of sarcasm, so much so it's to hard to distinguish from non-sarcasm

4.General awkwardness, from my speaking to my dancing, it just look's awkward.

5.General short temperateness in video games, though only online games.

1. Lazy as ****. Like I hate having to do anything.

2. Procrastinate excessively.

3. Low self-esteem.

4. *Completely* apathetic towards stuff that doesn't interest me(More than likely the reason I barely passed my subjects in High School, outside of History which I got an A in.)

4. I am not academically minded - I have been told I am intelligent and I know a great deal of knowledge for things I am interested in, I can tell you every single tidbit about the Final Fantasy, Elder Scrolls and Fallout series (to name a few) and I have a deep interest in history and mythology...but my years in secondary (high) school were hard because many subjects were tough, stemming from lack of interest (Math was a ***** for me too mate) I did them, but my grade never went above or below a C.

Well let's see.

1. Extremely Disorganized It's not that I'm incapable of sorting my things they just seem to naturally become a mess too quickly for me to bother. I don't remember how many times I've had to clear out my entire book bag/room to find a single assignment.
2. Arrogant At least when it's something I feel I'm good at (academics mostly). It's definitely come and bit me in the ass a few times already.
3. Absent Minded If I don't write something down I'm going to forget it and even if I do write it down there's a good chance I won't be able to find it again (see flaw 1)
4. Monotone I've been told repeatedly that I can't use sarcasm because I'm just too emotionless. Some of my friends suggested I go as far as announce my emotional intent before a sentence like an Elcor...
5. Laziness Probably the the root cause of most of these other flaws. I'm rather busy with classes and work but when i have any free time I tend to waste it rather than doing what I really should do instead.

Well shit, apart from dyscalculia, that's pretty much me. I also procrastinate a lot and have Aspergers (High functioning autism now?) so I find it harder to empathize with others...and read body language.

Other than that, I'm pretty much perfect ;)

Ok, let's make this my five "Biggest" flaws, because wow, we just don't have the time.

1: I hate expressing myself. I cannot be nice to people face to face, I have to text or message them. Face to face... I just can't express myself, I get all awkward and make jokes Chalndler style, and have to bail. It's not pretty.

2: I hate myself so much.

3: I hate myself SO GODDAMN MUCH.

4: I procrastinate. Right now I'm putting off going to bed, but I really need to seeing as I have a shit-tonne of work to do tomorrow, and I only got back from London yesterday late, and then went out drinking so I'm fucking shattered.

5: I drink, occasionally smoke, and always lie about the drinking and smoking.

And on top of this, I feel no guilt at all about any of these things, which is why I hatemyself so much.
Wow, that depressed me. Fun times.

1. I have so many things I've started and never finished. I'm getting way better about this, but it still comes up on occasion and is a huge pain.

2. I have some pretty irrational fears despite being an ardent atheist and science-lover. Like, I can't stand the dark and mirrors just creep me out.

3. I have a really low attention span, sometimes I'll tab away to something else while I'm doing something online and not come back to whatever I was originally doing for hours.

4. My anxieties are off the charts, even a small thing I did years ago can send me into a brief bout of worry.

5. I'm worse at games than I'd like to admit, but I'm working on that too.

This is quite the depressing thread.

1. I suffer incredible brain farts. Many times I've wished I could retract the last twenty seconds of time because I accidentally said something incredibly stupid that I don't actually think.

2. I suck at finishing things. I love to start things, I get frustrated or bored of them much too easily.

3. I'm wishy-washy. Maybe not so much on the forums, where I can think about my thoughts before typing, but in real life, I can't think as fast as a normal conversation. So I just smile, say "OK", and come up with tons of things I SHOULD have said about three minutes later.

4. I'm too entertainment driven. I have a bunch of things to do, but I'd really rather play Duke Nukem 2 again.

5. I react badly to new social situations. I won't go so far as to say I'm socially inept, but if I'm in a social situation that's never happened to me before, I typically make a hilarious fool out of myself. Heaven help me if a girl asks me out, which is apparently an increasingly common thing.

Just to clarify, the object of this thread is to explore your worst flaws. I'm not suggesting that any humans downfalls can be sorted into five slots.

Yeah, I guess I should have seen this coming. I'd rather people viewed this as a self analysis in order to make way for self improvement instead of mindless self criticism.

Yes, I heard about your Aspergers before. I'm by no means an expert on the subject but, having chatted to you a couple times on camera and spoken to you many times more in IL I can say that you genuinely seem like a perfectly approachable, friendly guy and you've certainly made me question my own judgement of people. :)

Alrighty, guess I should stop procrastinating.

1. I'm way too cynical. I'm very distrustful of peoples good intentions, especially if directed towards me. Often times this leads me to mentally brush someone off as just being selfish, for the sake of their image. It's not really something I can easily fix, since a lot of times I'm validated in my assumption. There are a lot of people out there who do "good" to look good.

2. Anti-social. This goes a bit hand-in-hand with my Cynicism. Because of my distrusting nature, I tend to keep myself to myself. I'm not entirely adverse to having friends, but I keep their numbers extremely low, about 1 or 2 at any given time, and I tend to lose contact with them for long periods of time (months to years).

3. Procrastination Specialist. Self explanatory, really.

4. Too good at doing my job(s). On the surface this looks like it would be a good thing. However, it isn't. I always find the most expedient and efficient methods possible to finish my tasks, which often leaves me with a good amount of free time. This makes me look like I'm goofing off, when in reality I just get done way ahead of schedule. However, I also don't go looking for things to do once I'm caught up, because I have a firm belief in not doing other peoples jobs for them since they are usually the ones goofing off and falling behind. Because of this, I've never held a job for more than a year, because when it's time to cut back I'm the first on the list.

5. Dyscalculia. Like the OP, I'm stupid at math which forced me to drop out of high school 15 years ago and kept me from even obtaining a GED. I could rectify that in this day and age with online tests (which I could freely cheat at), but since I have no real ambition to obtain a degree in any college courses, I just procrastinate.

1) I'm such a lier, and I tend to lie if it can get me out of things which leads on...
2) I can't accept responsibility at all
3) I'm emotionally barren, and in turn I'm incredibly blunt towards others, which in turn means
4) I tend to be rather dismissive of other peoples thoughts and feelings, unless I can understand them. then I'm as empathetic as hell.
5) I'm to sexy/confident for my own good. Mainly sexy.

I'm also amazed at the amount of self loathing in this thread, come on guys, chin up.

1: I have horribly low self-esteem and poor confidence. Back in 2006 I had thoughts of suicide. Things have gotten MUCH better, but there still is residue of that time lingering around. I have a hard time saying nice things about myself (It still always feels undeserved) and I second guess my decisions all the time because I dont have the confidence to stick with them
2: I have no motivation. My to-do list is constantly growing, and I even put off stuff that I like doing because I just cant get around to doing them. Even putting deadlines on stuff doesnt help
3: Terribly disorganized. My room is a mess, and that mess spreads to wherever I spend a lot of time (smaller messes appear near my spot on the couch and in the basement) I can barely see the top of my desk, and most of my clothes are on a pile on the floor (both dirty and clean, they're not separate). My schedule is in a similar state, where I try and agree to see 3 people at the same the same time
4: Absent-minded. Its hard for me to stay focused or remember details. My parents are convinced that I have ADD, though i've never been diagnosed
5: I have trouble swallowing food. Everything I listed was a personality or mental flaw, so here is a physical one. When I eat meat/bread/root vegetables/strawberries they end up going down slow and sometimes getting stuck. Never choking though, I have always been able to breath during every episode. So I tend to need a non-carbonated/non-alcoholic drink whenever eating to help it go down. Its been suggested to go to a doctor to have it checked out but #2-4 have been preventing me.

Actually these two apply to me as well:

2. I avoid confrontation at all costs
I hate arguments or stating when something bothers me. I let it build up inside of me where it turns into a much bigger issue then it would have been if I had just said something about it.

4. I apologise for everything
When someone bumps into me, I apologise to them. A while ago when I was on my way to school with a friend I walked into a wall and then apologised to it. That's right.
