Let's have a conversation, LiveJournal.

Tell me one quality you really like about yourself.

Personally, I like the fact that I'm a fairly forgiving person. I don't tend to hold grudges, and I can forgive people pretty easily. Sometimes it backfires on me, but I don't regret being that way, because I think I'm the better person for it. We're all going to get hurt in life, and I'd rather be the kind of person who can let that go rather than hold it in.

It's your turn! What do you like about yourself?

I like that I am a very loyal person. I might bitch and moan about it, but when push comes to shove, there's very little that I won't do for friends and family.

That's a really awesome quality to have. Friends and family like you are invaluable.

That's an excellent quality to have, Erin!

I think one of the qualities I really like about myself is that I won't judge anyone on a first impression. I'll always give someone a chance for me to get to know them before jumping to conclusions. I may not be like WOW YOU ARE MY NEW BEST FRIEND but I'll definitely try and get to know them better first.

Thank you!

That's a great quality! I've been bad about that in the past, but I've been trying to be better about it in recent years. I wouldn't want anyone to judge me on a first impression, so I feel that I owe them the same courtesy.

I can talk to anybody. Small talk or in-depth, I'm good at striking up conversations.

That's a great quality to have. I, personally, do not have that. I've gotten better at it in the last few years, but it's always a struggle for me. I'm quite envious of those who can do that easily.

I blame 14 years of public relations for beating it into me. :)

That would do it!

I think it's that, no matter how badly someone has treated me, I still feel horrible for them when they're in pain. I was really surprised when I felt really bad for my ex-best friend (who accused me of crying wolf) and for her fiance (the guy who raped me) when I found out he passed away. I think that says a lot about the kind of person I am.

That is a good quality. It shows that you have compassion, which is a good thing to have.

I keep a cool head in a crisis.

That's ALWAYS good.

I like that I can read people well, and that I can therefore hear better what people mean even when it isn't what they're saying.

And that I am kind.

That's probably a great skill to have. I do not have it, sadly.

You are so very kind. It's one of the many things I love about you.

I like that I'm helpful.

I like to surf around and throw up silly lists of fun links. But given a subject by someone, and I'll hunt them up all sorts of helpful sites. I spend a lot of time answering emails with a run of links to things to make people's lives easier.

That's a really lovely quality to have. It speaks to what a nice person you, too.

I like that I have the ability to laugh at myself. I also like that I'm relatively approachable (probably more so in real life than here. I tend to be a little more guarded online).

Being able to laugh at yourself is an awesome quality! I'm actually more approachable online than in real life, weirdly enough.
posted by [identity profile] at 03:17am on 20/04/2009
I think I'm a pretty understanding person, and sympathetic.
posted by [identity profile] at 11:29pm on 20/04/2009
I agree with both of those, and would like to add that I love those qualities about you.
posted by [identity profile] at 03:21am on 20/04/2009
i think my best quality is my easygoing nature, and how willing i am to be friends with anyone. ♥

Excellent qualities to have!

I feel like I am MUCH the same as you are when it comes to grudges and such. It takes a LOT to ruffle me, really, and then an hour later or so I start to see both sides and I just - I let things go. Sometimes I feel as if that's a bad thing,'s good, I know it is.

I like this idea, gonna do it in my lj too :)

I think it can be a bad thing, but in the long run we're better off. Our mental health is certainly better for it, I think!

It's fun! I like forcing people to be positive. ♥
