The objective of this paper is to show you the personal strengths and weakness that I identified by asking friends and family their opinion on the topic
regarding yours truly, and by examining myself for areas that I am really good at (also known as strengths) and areas I need to improve (otherwise known as weaknesses). After I have identified them, I will tell you how recognizing my strengths and weakness can help me to improve myself to achieve a more peaceful and satisfying personal life.
I will start with the unflattering information first and list my most obvious weaknesses.
My weaknesses were hard for me to identify but with the help of friends I was suddenly very informed on what they were! I was able to identify one weakness on my own and it is impatience. There is an old saying that patience is a virtue. Any single one of my friends will agree with me that patience has never been one of my virtues. I want everything done right now and all the questions
answered immediately. Given the chance I would go straight from A to C and would skip the B without a moments’ hesitation. My second weakness combined
with impatience makes the situation even more pronounced. I am very impulsive which can be a good thing on occasion but usually ends up being a
bad thing. I do not think about what I am going to do or say next or moderate the tone I say it in. I often sound very irritated and come across as being rude when that is not really true. In reality, I am just frustrated because things aren’t happening as quickly as I want them to. The last major weakness that I identified with the help of my loving husband was stubbornness. I inherited the trait from my dad of course. Once I have made up my mind on an idea or action not many people can easily persuade me to do or think something different. I often tenaciously stick to my guns, even after I might realize that I am wrong and someone else may be right. When I do realize that I am without a doubt and undeniably wrong, eventually the person in question gets a very reluctant and somewhat surly admission that I might have been wrong. The fact that I will admit that I am wrong brings me to the subject of my personal strengths.
Identifying my personal strengths was a lot easier for me than identifying my weakness. I would rather look at myself and my actions and point out the good attributes that I have then point out the bad ones. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to relate to people. I understand...
