Positive things
1. Good listener
2. Affectionate
3. Driven
4. Imaginative
5. Honest without being blunt (I like to think so anyway)

Not-so-positive things
1. Perfectionist
2. Easily frustrated
3. Can take things personally (at work) e.g. if I'm in on a mass e-mail that's giving everyone a telling off about something, I automatically think it's aimed at me (I know that's ridiculous)
4. Can cry too easily sometimes
5. Very VERY bad at replying to texts; I hate texting

Apart from the last one, the not-so-positives are all to do with being a perfectionist - if I can't do something new on first attempt, I get very frustrated and then it all goes from there. The example of the e-mail happens too often, even though I know in my heart of hearts it's not aimed at me personally, but I've learned to deal with that and I'm getting over myself :lol: .

Surprisingly, it took me longer to think of the not-so-positive points and I'm quite pleased about that - two years ago I would have been able to reel off a list as long as my leg of negatives.

It's nice to see people giving their good points, I think it makes you positive and focused on those good points. And of the negative, it gives you a chance to stop and think.

Dipsy I'm surprised you can't think of any good points, so I have thought of a few for you. From your posts you strike me as:
Friendly
Approachable
Helpful
Modest
Tactful

I am stealing one of captains - I too am not afraid to be different. In fact I don't want to be the same as everyone else. I am unique :D

In respect to the "I'm different" comments..... i agree if we are all different then we are all the same and not special. I like to think im special, but then people say, oh everyones special, but if everyones special then no1 is special. I have now decided if some people don't like me thats because im different and special, not everyone liked jesus, he was special. Not everyone liked micheal jackson, he was special. I am sure there are lots more examples.... anyway not really that important just made me feel better about all the rejection i get....

So my list:-

The good-
Passionate
Loving/caring
Loyal
Ambitious
Funny

The bad:-
I can be lazy
I'm too passionate, im passionate about everything (He stole my muffin, he must be made to pay....)
I cry over the silliest things
have a habit of feeling sorry for my self
low self esteem
I over anaylse everything
I take everything personally

The ugly:-
Im a jealious person
I do crazy things sometimes (like banging down the door of my ex.. oh the shame)
Can be too proud (when im not banging down doors...)
Can be selfish
Im greedy....


That was fun :)

Depends what you mean by being different though.
Being different doesnt make one necessarily special neither really.

Best:

1. I am thoughtful

Worst:
1. Shyness
2. Can be very negative at times
3. I worry myself stupid over things
4. Far too sensitive and take things too personally
5. I don't believe in myself or think I am capable of good people in my life or good things happening to me.

There is never enough passion one can rouse when dealing with the guy who steals your muffin - Get him, Get him and punish him so he never steals muffins, chocolate or ice cream ever again :-"

haha too right; I remember I was in such a bad mood because some blokes from work stayed late and ate all but about 2 of the almost full packet of sweets I had on my desk (i.e. no where near them); I never have sweets either and my bf gave me them :cry:.
