No, my friend, it is not so. Being gentle means not compromising our integrity to our whims and desires. Helping means showing care and concern for others, proving that we are humans with feelings and not mere robots. Being a perfectionist means putting your heart and soul in your endeavors and not just doing something for the sake of doing. Being honest means living a life of commitment with self. Being happy means celebrating the glory of life and gregarious is proving that two heads are better than one.

Not at all, my friend... being gullible, is similar to being naive and being able to be sucked into believing what people tell you, especially when it's B/S. Helping depends on whether the person you're helping is grateful and realises what you're sacrificing for them, and would return the help if you were in need. You're only a sucker if you help those who won't help themselves to an extent and are ungrateful for your "intrusion". Being a perfectionist, is not a fault either. Do you feel it's wrong to do things in a way that they give you satisfaction? I don't think so. Being honest, is the only way to be. It's more crazy to tell lies and be dishonest, because you invariably get found out, and being happy and gregarious might seem childish to others who don't know how to be happy, but to my mind, it means that you are happy with your life, and have the ability to mix, that you are satisfied with the way you help your friends, are honest with them, and are a perfectionist in many ways. Brightest Blessings, my friend.

I think the key is to take a little bit of each of these qualities. Helping people I believe can be very rewarding, particularly if you help people in need. I love helping sudents learn, nothing better then helping them learn and grow. I only think you are a sucker if you help people time and time again that don't appreciate your kindness. Now being a perfectionist, I don't think that is freaky but I do think that it can make your life pretty difficult living with high expectations. Being a virgo, we are said to be perfectionists. I get my days where I want everything to be perfect, but I physically don't have the energy or time to make everything perfect. Honesty now that is a tough one. I think it is good to be honest. However in certain situations I believe you need to fib a little. For instance when someone says, " do I look fat in this." Honesty would be crazy then, if you said, "well actually you do look rather fat in that dress, lol" Being happy childish, I don't agree with that all. We all need to be happy, it is definately not irresponsible. Do not know where they get the idea that being gentle if gullible. I think being gentle means you are very compassionate and caring. Sorry for my long response, great discussion topic.

Being honest is having a clear conscious, some people don't have a conscious therefore find it easier to lie. Sometimes honesty is NOT the best policy and lies have to be said, I think if I was honest with my ex I would be crazy, no totally insane and I think I would have been locked up, so a lie or two for me saved me. You have to live to your own standards and shouldn't lower yourself to other people's standards, just because you stand out in the crowd, you have your own principles and just because someone doesn't like it, doesn't mean you have to follow the crowd. It's the sheep sydrome, live the life the way you want to live it and don't just follow the sheep!

I don't think that being a perfectionist is being a freak at all...because i mean everyone has their own way in which they live their lives...and they don't try and live their lives for anyone else..as long as they do what makes them happy and are truly themselves then i dont think that you can live your like a wrong way or a right way...I Think that you have to do what makes you happy then thats all you can do...
