    I thought it would be interesting for people to say what they were most and least proud of about themselves, to compare how people honestly identify as members of society. It can be almost trivial things - anything you feel is relevant. It might also help to state your gender and age.

    Best things
    - I believe I would do the right thing in most everyday moral dilemmas, even if it didn't benefit me. I genuinely want other people to be happy.
    - I think I'm good at being laid back, particularly where it comes to taking insults well, and letting certain things go.
    - I'm good at maths, and try to work hard at it.

    Worst things
    - Can be very over-confident and arrogant. I try to keep this hidden in front of other people, but at heart I have a massive ego.
    - Physical laziness. I've always been unfit, and have never followed through to get fit. Yet.
    - I have the social skills of a zygote.

    The above are my replies - feel free to add your own. I find it interesting to see how people view themselves.

    Good
    I handle stress exceptionally well, it takes an awful lot to get me even slightly annoyed.

    Worst
    Im arrogant
    Overly attached to other people.
    Very Fickle.
    Poor long term concentration.
    Boastful
    Prone to ... embellishing...stories.
    I care far to much about what people think.
    Often won't stand up for what I really think due to fear of social stigmatization.(see above)(this is something im trying to change)

    Best:
    Good listener
    Good conversation when you get to know me and I'm past the shy awkward stage! lol
    I give good advice and I'm good at cheering other people up
    I'm a know-it-all when it comes to animals/PCs/games/maths


    Worst:
    I put other peoples feelings before myself (trying to be more selfish now)
    I give too many chances
    I'm extremely shy
    I do tend to get attached to one person and tell them EVERYTHING.. then they eventually disappear. Thats a pretty hurtful one!
    I get jealous

    I put animals before humans, propbably because I have been hurt so much in the past. Not sure if this is good or bad!

    Best:
    • Genuine & pretty down to earth.
    • A fun person to be around once you get to know me.
    • I like to help others although feel like any advice I give won't always be the best.
    • Think I'm fairly polite & nice person on the whole.
    • Try my best in everything I do.
    • Fairly non-judgmental.


    Worst:
    • Not as intelligent as I want be.
    • Quite self-consciousness in social situations & care too much about what others think/potential embarrassment.
    • Need to be less afraid of certain responsibilities.
    • Worry about things more than I should.
    • Don't think I look that good at all.
    • Wish I had more interests than I do at the moment.
    • Probably need to be more serious at times.
    • Sometimes make silly mistakes that I regret once it's too late.
    • Would rather just be good at things that contribute to society than really random things that are useless in life.

    BEST: I'm known for being a really nice person, im rarely in a mood or angry with people.

    WORST: I'll lie to people to not upset them- whether that means stringing along a guy, not telling my friends if they're being cheated on for example... just can't handle the drama. Honestly hate this about myself

    Best:
    - It takes an awful lot to stress me out or rile me up, so I'm fairly laid back in that sense.
    - However, in contrast to the above, I'm also very determined. If I aim for something, I'm going to achieve it. Or else. When I was at school, this meant I ended up teaching myself and the rest of the class A-Level Biology as I wasn't satisfied with the teaching and I wanted an A* :p:
    - Fairly confident and I enjoy meeting new people.
    - I like to think I'm tolerant towards others, even if my personal beliefs are the polar opposite.
    - I've been told I have a good sense of humour; it has been described as 'witty'.

    Worst:
    - Determination often turns into stubbornness, depending on the situation.
    - I get fed up with my own company fairly quickly so like to be busy all the time.
    - Not very open emotionally. I'd rather bottle something up than tell people about it. This partly stems from..
    - Distrust of other people. Not in a paranoid way, but I'm not one for pouring my heart out to someone as I find other people have trouble with keeping their mouths shut. The exception is my boyfriend and best friend, the two people I feel I can trust with anything.
    - I'm fairly impatient. If I want something doing, I want it done yesterday :p:
    - On the flip side of my sense of humour, it's rather dry. People can sometimes take it in the wrong way and think I'm being serious.
