Since we all are blessed more with good qualities rather than weakness or weak points we can try and utilize them to make our life better. I appreciate your strength and determination is required to get our tasks done. I have a positive outlook towards everything is my plus point and regarding weakness i am a bit short tempered. I have already started to cool down on certain issues rather than getting furious and hope gradually I can overcome it. Well I trust people whom i know well and I don't suspect the close ones.

Its a nice observation that men are endowed more with good qualities than bad. Perhaps nature has given us more good things so that we become successful in life and be helpful to society.Yes positive thought bring positive results according to the world famous book 'The Secret' Learn controlled breathing and meditation to overcome your short temper

Sorry, I did not mean all men are endowed more with good qualities, it is applied for even us the womenfolk. I know many who lack confidence and are poor determined towards their goal, who need extra encouragement from his family, friends and especially the subordinates. I have not heard about this book, thanks for sharing and would like to read it sometimes. Yes I try to control my temper but at times it gets explored!!

I actually think that my strength and weakness are the same things, but for different reasons. I am excellent about working hard, earning money and making sure that I save it up for the things that I need later on in my life. However, because of that, I sometimes feel as though I am not enjoying my life as much as perhaps some of my friends are. However, I think that I would much prefer to be comfortable with regards to money in my life, whereas they won't be able to do the things like settle down with a house until much later on in their lives.

Now that you know that your weaknesses are undoing your strength i think its time you enjoyed the money you earn. There is no point in merely working hard and not utilising the fruits of your hard work. Think over

Faith in God is your strength meaning you accept what God gives you.To stay alway from gossipers is a good attitude. They are more dangerous than nuclear bombs

I am a fighter esp. if I am in (big) trouble. I give away way too much to people who say they are in trouble even if it gives me extra trouble or I am in big need.

Well, I have so many weakness. I am not confident, always being nervous when meet new people, too idealized, have so many ideas but only one or two can work out, and I am just concerned too much on future. Maybe people's characters are related to their growth background. I am reading psychology books and learning to relax myself now.

The good thing in the middle of all those supposedly negative qualities that you have mentioned is that you know what your weaknesses are.I still doubt thaat you have all those weaknesses. Another thing is that you have started the right approach to over come your deficiencies by going through psychology books. I suggest you go through many personality development books and do meditation atleast 30 minutes a day.Best of luck

You are right, we all have our strength and weaknesses...as long as we realise what these traits are it becomes a lot easier to handle things.In my own case, my strength is my perseverance .I normally dont give up easily on anything when I know that a certain thing can be achieved.My greatest weakness however is that I get taken in very easily by people and this has had many disastrous effects with people taking undue advantage of me...all the best for the weekend and happy mylotting

Perseverance is a good quality. Its aid that most Indians quit when they are about to reach the pinnacle.They lose interest just when they are about to succeed. So persevere till we succeed must be our motto.Tighten up ur defences

My strength and weakness change time to time. At present my weakness is being sleepy. I love sleeping. My strength is my pleasant speech. I terribly attract people around me by my polite talk. I carefully select words and have good conversation with others.

Not all strengths and weakness change with time. We are inborn with certain qualities which will remain in us till the end. Perhaps you have not done enough introspection about self.

My greatest strength is that I am encored to the Most High One and thus more than conqueror. My weakness (says today society) is I love to say it like it is.

To call a spade a spade is not wrong. Its not a weakness.There are people who would say yes when they want to say no. This has had adverse impact on their career.So at least you are assertive to say what you think is right or wrong

I have a positive outlook on life. That what makes me still and strong, while my ability to over do things or most of the time not doing anything at all is killing me.

WE all have imperfections that is why life are full of opportunities for us to accept this fact. My strength is that before I made a decision I make sure that I have carefully studied all possibilities given this it really takes time for me to make a decision. My weakness is that my reaction time is slow that's why I need to cover up all angles before I let myself in in a situation. Truthfully, my strength is my weakness and my weakness is my strength. Finally, I've phrased it right. I have been asked about this question in my job interviews and I simply answered it without really realizing what I am saying cause it did not occur to me prior to the interview that a question like that is gonna be thrown.

Its a nice attitude that you have. Its always good to analyse the different angels of an issue instead to jumping into it blindly.My reaction time slow? you mean you are slow in taking decision?

I'm not sure this is a weakness but I tend to turn the other cheek. You wrong me I'm more likely to let it pass and not do or say anything about it. However if you wrong me again I will have no problem washing my hands of you. My weakest point in my personality is that I am not assertive enough with people in my life. Then when I do stand up and draw the line they get upset and insulted when I am just honest with my feelings. My strongest thing is that I CAN hold my temper in check with annoying people.

There is something that you must look at very frankly. By being mild and not being assertive you are likely to be exploited by others. This si a dangerous world. One must learn to call a spade a spade.There is nothing wrong by being a bit more assertive, without being too aggressive

hi:) I work so slow,that's my weakness, but I try my best now to work faster, I don't like it when they tease me I'm a turtle, because I walk so slow too, I don't know maybe they are just a fast walker, because when I'm with my friends nobody tells me that I'm so slow, haha or maybe they just being polite for not teasing me:D well for my strength I have will power to do things, i must be slow but when I want to do it, I put my heart and mind into it and make sure that it have a good outcome. have a good day friend!

Actually don't know what strenghts and weaknesses I have.. I would probably pick kindness as strenght. I work with people and they all like me we get along very well. My weakness is as well suspicious, but as you already mentioned it I will choose fear. In some situations I would rather run away than face with the problems.

Its wrong to say that you dont know your strengths and weakness.The first thing that must be sorted out for a successful career to identify our strongpoints and weak ares.Kidness is a good virtue.Suspicion? haha like me
