A comment I read earlier this morning prompted a thinking-storm about "character", and when we use the word in reference to someone, we are mostly
implying good traits, such as honesty, integrity, tolerance, generosity, determination and such.
Everyone has "character", but it might not always be quite so glowing in description or action.
What are the "characteristics" of a person that we, as a culture, see as undesirable? So much in fact that we find these people unlikeable?
I've had many of them going through my head as I write this. Do you agree? Or do you find any of these traits desirable?
What is a trait in a person you find the most icky?
In no particular order,
Arrogance, rudeness and bullying, domineering or authoritarian, dishonest, conceited or thinks way too highly of themselves, condescending,
Blames others for mistakes, overly-aggressive, never apologizing (seen as a weakness), focused on personal gain only, think they know everything, or
Can't accept criticism, Abrasive (mean), huge sense of entitlement, unreliable, Cheaters, immoral, snobbish, jealous, bigoted, loyal to none,
inconsistent, drama-started, sexist, immature, impatient, impulsive, overly-religious, overly political, bad winner, bad loser, materialistic,
hyper-critical of others, self-centered
Whoa, enough. I think I have some of these, too. What's your problem?
Thought I'd toss this out here and see what happens. It's a beautiful Saturday here, and I plan to go outside and cut down old dead stuff, but
I'll be in and out.
To our good and flawless characters!
