    What personality flaws did you "inherit" from your parents? I'll start:

    1) Overly-sarcastic (I'm able to temper this in front of strangers)
    2) Extremely critical of others (I don't think I can ever get rid of this one)
    3) Overtly opinionated (I have tempered this one)
    4) Absolute intolerance for stupid people (see #2)
    5) Saying embarrassing things/foot-in-mouth syndrome (I abolished this one over time)

    Whatcha got?

    Do you think you "inherited" them or do you think it was more a case of nurture vs nature? I have to think about what I may have "inherited" from my parents. One man's personality flaw is another's family values...

    I would say that all the things you've mentioned are "traits"
    not anything inherited per se from your parents.
    Why would you want to put out your "bad traits" anyway?
    I don't think I'd want to brag about that.
    Not criticisizing just saying......
    To answer your "who cares what my motivation is." question.
    You do or you wouldn't have bothered to write up another post to explain why it's not bragging to everyone.
    Chill straight guy.

    once the mind becomes conscious of all your personality traits you can change them.

    that's why i always wondered, how do people become conscious of whatever decision making flaws or additude flaws they have, but still make no effort to change them? they just say "fuck it that's how i am" . and seem to be proud of it. and somehow, these people end up in the white house.

    Simple. Most people don't examine their lives, behaviors, or motives to any great degree.

    Who cares what my motivation is? This isn't a bragging thread at all, although the last one was meant for humor.

    The genesis for the post was self-examination. I just spent a weekend with my family and noticed how annoying/destructive some of these traits are, especially when you can see them frm another perpective.

    This thread should be about the flaws, only.

    I think these were all nurture based......I will probably start one about the positives, of which there are many.

    I read the OP's use of the word "inherit" as broader than only the genetic sense. Personality traits are inherited or passed down through both the nature and nurture pathways. Of course physical traits are genetic. It possible to "inherit" big tits or a small dick. Likewise we could "inherit" a bad temper or the ability to make lots of money.

    At least that is how I interpreted the intent of the thread. lwd can correct me if I am wrong.

    my dad is shy, and i am shy. i'm always working on that. i hate it.

    and he always has that angry face all the time.. like he's gonna kill someone.. i do that at times as well.. although his facial expression creeps people out more..

    Somehow I knew that.


    In other news:
    I think I inherited my sarcasm from my father.
    A certain killer instinct in argument (much inhibited in my case) from my father ... as my mother always said, 'He could prove that black was white and up was down.'
    A tendency in relationships to lie down and play dead, to let things slide, from my mother.

    My parents really were quite different from each other.
    I suppose I also inherited some good traits from each, but that's not what this thread is about.
