Self-Deprecation Contest

For the utterly self-deprecating:

What do you think is your worst or more precisely most troubling quality, something about yourself that you would change if you could?

If you have trouble finding one of these issues in yourself...well...could that be the issue?

Another angle might be: self-deprecation contest.

I think the favorite answer will be: Modesty! Smile


In my case, I think I wouldn't change anything. I am what I am (it sounds biblical!) and I must live with it.

Im way too shy, hence me working in a crappy job as Ive no confidence to try for any other job.
Also I dont stand up for myself enough and have let people walk all over me.

I am impatiant about some things and tend to assume the answer rather than ask.

MG,

Interesting. I've never thought of you as shy on here at all. Perceptions are interesting things.

Well, if you could take your A2K character's aspects into reality, you'd have that solved. Thats another thread I suppose: how is your A2K character similar/different from your "real" world character.

Don't be depressed. There are worst cases. As you know, Mr. Bin Laden was a very shy kid in school. And see the kind of job he has now, living in caves and eating cheese everyday. No Social Security either.

Answer: visibility.
For instance, I have two heads, I am green, and speak from a hole in my stomach. But here in A2K I can pretend being like you. That is, assuming you have only one head.

Not amazing. These strangers appreciate your intelligence. Here you are your ideas, your personality, not what you think of them.

I think I can become to dependant on things. No substances or material objects, so much as people and emotions.

dlowan,

Thats pretty good, (or bad). But the judges are saying a very bad self is worse than no self. So nice try, but I'm still worse than that, in a lot of ways.

Craven's answer is still in the computer, made it do a do-end loop...doesn't quite compute...will update when possible...

In the meantime: jeez, this is the worst anyone is?
Give us something to sink our teeth into. I, for example, ingest too much caffeine and all those damn energy drinks too much.

No serial murderers or at least necrophiliacs or something out there?

You do realize that this statement of yours is strongly self-deprecating? Could it be that someone is a bit too guarded and distrustful, even around friends? Twisted Evil

Hmmm....King of modesty. The most modest of all time! Its: Nobody!

Can you please just tell us something bad, really bad, about yourself?

I suffer fools a little too lightly...

I do have to live with myself, after all.

Okay, maybe if I actually self-deprecate some more, that will make people more willing to share:

Sometimes I'll forget to comb my hair and tie my shoes.
