This thread is for pointing out your flaws.

For myself: I talk about how respectful behavior should be valued allot more, but have a hypocritical tendency to be an utter @ss hole myself.

I portray arrogance to cover up my hidden insecurities, which leads to a lot of cognitive dissonance.

Really? I havent noticed much that I've seen. I guess you're referring more to real life.

I try to be over-confident and unfazable in public when in reality, I'm not.

I'm too good looking and it causes problems when the ladies can't keep their hands off of me.

The society doesn't understand the services I'm doing to them by intellectual cleansing. It is looked upon as a flaw my most. :(

Surprising, last time this was done, everyone said stuff like "I'm too smart" or "I'm too logical, so people have a hard time connecting to me."

Mine is that I'd rather tell people what they want to hear, rather than what I think. No point in causing conflict in real life.

I dont consider this a bad thing. If people actually told their boss what they think of them, most people would be fired in no time.

I'm really a procrastinator, sometimes i don't even start assignments until sunrise on the day they're due. When i used to take a 2:30pm English class, i'd start work on papers after lunch. This is really going to bite me in the arse one day.

Also, i don't go to sleep until sunrise. I have no real, non-bs reason to be up that late. I'm always tired. I know it's dumb, and yet i do it anyway. I think that's my flaw, i do things i know are stupid for no good reason.

I have a strange thing that helps me sometimes. Its pretty simple: go outside and stand/sit for 5-10 minutes. Since its summer, it'll be burning outside. The sun rays increase body temperature, which for whatever reason makes me feel more active and loose, and thus more inclined to do things.

Seems weird, but I always its easier to get stuff done when hot then cold/neutral.

Well... I'm extremely self-indulgent.

I'm extremely impatient, especially with explanations.

I have a really bad habit of being dismissive when someone holds a contrasting opinion I've encountered too many times before, and belittling when it appears as though someone hasn't made a real effort to learn about something.

I've been working on the latter two with a fair degree of success, though (I think).

And, I'm a terrible, terrible flirt. I treat girls here the way I would at work to prevent embarrassing myself.

Generally, cut out things (tv, internet sites you procrastinate on) that you waste time on. You can get apps to temporarily cut off internet access to all or certain sites when you need to get things done, for example stayfocusd on google chrome.

If there's an important thing coming up, give someone you trust money with the condition that you only get it back once you've completed the task you need too (within an certain time frame). For example, if you have an important exam coming tell someone to only give you the money back if you achieve at least a B grade. It'll motivate you more.

Mix a tedious task with something more enjoyable so it isn't as boring. If you have to mow the lawn, do it while listening to music or an audiobook. If you have to revise, give yourself lemon ice cream (or whatever) after every half hour's work.

Most importantly, do something that interests you. If you have a job or are studying a subject you aren't at all interested in, either get another job or motivate yourself by thinking about the things you hope to get out of the work you're doing now (money, a marketable degree).

That's interesting, because in order to succumb to sleep the core body temperature must correlate with the skin temperature. So, I assume you are talking about raging heat. ^

I am act confident and cheerful around others (friends not family), more so than I actually am.

I stay up too late at night.

I don't wake up early enough most nights.

I don't keep track of things that well.

I don't need to self-criticize. There are enough people on this forum that do the work for me. :)

I can become too pretentious sometimes, though most of the time I am trying to stimulate a more varied and lively manner of expression.

I can also be very narrow in approach, constrained, and rather bland in both the principles I express and how I express them, sometimes to the verge of verbosity or sheer silliness.

And moreover, I can become sometimes inflamed and a bit bellicose in manner, and lash out...against..certain individuals....

Indeed. But then again, you refusal to admit your own faults--unlike a great deal of us is surely telling of the very personality fault that we criticize. ;)

I'll only put the one self-criticism ;)

I'm a terribly anxious person. I don't want to offend anyone nor be offended. I was talking to a friend and he had such a fallicious point and I was pointing it out, and a teacher said something to support him and I just left it with "I suppose". Why didn't I just defend my positionnnnnnnnnn! Gah!
Things that make me happy!
