Describe yourself. ... in TWO.
October 13, 2008 8:40pm CST
If you are given a chance to describe yourself in TWO words. ONE word for your Positive Attributes and ONE for your Negative Attribute. What would it be? Plus explain why you described yourself as such. For my positive word I'd go for: Trustworthy. For my negative word I'd go for: Strict. Trustworthy because I don't really like to gossip about other people. I think it's a pastime that most like to do, but I just don't. I think it's unproductive and it doesn't really do anything good for the other. People can trust we with their secrets and know that when they need me, I would be there. As for strict, I know people find me to be strict to the point of being ruthless at time. I always try to stand by the books and when I say something, I want people to abide or to do their best to get it right. Like one time, one of my good friends asked for my assistance to help her in her wedding plans. Well, she was really late and I got insulted and told her straight that if she wanted me to help her, she should be conscious of time because I don't want to waste time waiting for her to get her act right. Good thing, she understood what I wanted and instead of feeling insulted, she, from then on, was cautious about her schedules. But the bad thing about me being strict is because I tend to not listen to excuses or reasons. I am too firm at times, and sometimes becoming more or less heartless. What about you?

This may not be what you had in mind. But at this point they are the only two words that come to mind, Positive: Pregnant Negative: Tired I am 8 months pregnant. Bringing another child into the world can be a very positive thing. It brings hope for the family.Hope that the child will be a positive influence on thoe world and those around her/him. It brings a little piece of imortality. Tired from lack of sleep. Tired of being pregnant. (Just want the baby here already) Tired of answering questions. And most of all TIRED of RUDE PEOPLE. I will not birth this child in the middle of the grocery store. Yes there is only one child in me. I should have made my HANDS OFF THE BELLY t-shirt

It's true that sometimes caring too much about what other people think is something to be negative about. It keeps you from doing what you want and it always hinders you from success because no matter what you do, someone will always disapprove it. =) Think of it this way, whoever disapproves your decisions, make sure he is someone worth listening to, make sure he is successful and never let someone who's got nothing tell you what you can and can't do. =)

In describing my positive side, i am PATIENT. I considere this a postive aspect of my personality beacause it brought a lot of postive things in my life.Being patient allws me to improve more.I know that i am not very good in doing things,but with PAtience as my virtue,I am very sure that in due time,all my hard-work and perseverance will bring out something positive for me. My negative side would be me being too EMOTIONAl.i tend to feel bad evn with the most trivial things.i find it not helpfult because we tend to think less if we let ourselves be controlled by out emotions.Slowly i am trying to minimize and eliminate this attitude of mine.

Being PATIENT is indeed a good asset to have as a person. But I do hope no one is ever going to take you for granted for being so. Further, yeah I guess being TOO EMOTIONAL could really be a problem, but don't worry no person is without emotion, maybe you just have to adjust little by little by controlling your reactions. Thanks for sharing!

This is a little hard. My positive attribute is that I am really nice. Or at least I try to be. I try not to judge people when I first meet them and try to be very polite. I worry so much what people think about me that I sould never be rude or say something that might offend somebody. This leads to my negative attribute: I am severely shy. It takes me so long to open up to people and not a lot of people really know the real me. I'm so scared that someone is not going to like me that its just hard for them to even get to know me because I don't want to say something that will change their perspective of me. I hate it when people call me shy or quiet, but that's just how I am.

Hi! Thank you for trying to answer the topic. It's good that you try not to judge people, that's a very good attribute to have because in the society, people tend to be more skeptic when meeting new people. As for your shyness. Maybe you're just not comfortable with new people or crowds. Maybe it has something to do with you being not 'exposed' to society. You know what, I used to be super shy too. But then as I grew older, I realized that being shy and having the fear of what others might say keeps one from experiencing great things. So, I think you should try to overcome your shyness. Well, it doesn't mean that you go out doing obnoxious things, but rather try to do little steps into opening up. Try to conquer what makes you shy. And I assure you once you open up yourself more, you would feel more confident and sooner or later you can conquer your fears and live life! =) Thanks for being so nice, and hopefully sooner or later, you'd be a little less shy. =)

Positive: Intelligent. Negative: Responsible. Actually, these two are interchangeable...they have both been good and bads things for me and others. I'm set apart, at times, due to my mind. It allows me to help others more than I might otherwise be able to. It helps me be more efficient at jobs, it helps me enjoy my life more...it gives me more to give others. But at the same time, I'm aware that it enables my core, which is overly responsible...which occasionally causes harm to me and others if I see that it has the best chance for the best result (and by this I don't mean that I'd put others in danger for "the greater good"...I mean that 'd allow myself come to harm, which would emotionally hurt those connected to me.."for the greater good"...normally, for their sakes). My need, my drive to be responsible...It can put strain on my relationships and my understanding of the world, cloud my compassion...my intuition, and the parts of me which aren't based on logic. It can make me oversimplify things when maybe I shouldn't be oversimplify them...after I've critisized others for not looking at the details, for not looking at things as a whole.
