  4. Upon further inspection it seems as though I’ve more work to do. Thanks for the information.

  5. I really appreciate this list. When I realize a “new” character defect in myself, I always seek this list I’m my bookmarks. I wanted to suggest a few more. ……
    1) Condesending
    2) Debate seeking
    3) Proving Right (Point of View)
    4) Superiority
    It honestly hurts to discover MORE defects of my character—-all those people I have affected–it bothers me. All I can do now is take responsibility to apply change to my behavior.
    Thank You
