On the Internet, people commonly give themselves an ego boost by boasting or showing off in something that they pride themselves for (if you never have, that's quite the humility there).

So, instead of that, this thread is to make you feel bad about yourself (hyperbole). What are your weaknesses? What is something that, again, you are bad at?

For me, it's being bad at anything in general.
Have no regrets.

What are yours?

I can't tie my shoes, match my clothes properly and am a complete idiot with mundane things like paying bills. I also have no ideal what my washer and dryer settings should be at.

I tend to change my mind both frequently and radically on major life decisions. I guess I'm bad at being consistent.

I have terrible trust issues. I won't go into *why* I do here, but it has made me separate myself from certain family members, friends, etc. I'm still trying to get over it to this day.

For me, it's being bad at anything in general.

typing - it takes me full concentration, and I never improve no matter how much I type.

Only good? I'm brilliant at it.

Most people overestimate themselves - for example apparently 93% of Americans think they are above average drivers and 100% of football fans think they are better at reading a game than Joe Montana (at least one of those is true).

Everyone is mediocre at almost everything so they concentrate on the two or three things they can do best. If your lucky your talent will be for a popular sport and make millions. If you are above average at flower arranging(*), possibily great riches will elude you.

In all seriousness, I am terrible with directions of all kinds. I get lost extremely easily, and if someone gives me directions of any sort, you can count on me to screw up at least once.
Have no regrets.

Arguing. I know that's a weird trait for a debate site but for some reason I can never find the right words to form a coherent argument.

You do usually have issues getting your point across whenever we argue but given how much you love to argue and debate I'd guess you'll get over that eventually.

As for me, I guess I'm too stubborn or something? Really not sure, you'd have to ask someone that knows me.

There is no doctors note that says a person is a sociopath. The diagnosis manual used by psychologists DSM IV TR or DSM 5 does not have a label called sociopath thus nobody can be diagnosed with it.

No you don't have this disorder as only adults can be diagnosed with it.
Secondly this form of social impairment is clearly not present in the way you talk (its very noticable)
Thirdly Psychopathy is very different, and socipathy is a misnomer.

I'm aware you came here to inflate your ego, it's quite obvious. Your mafia play would be considered useless and toxic on MS however, it's really not there. You should also be aware that you attribute success to yourself in mafia when it's not warranted, and dismiss failure very easily. A mindset that propagates the self indulgence you desire in being good at something that you aren't.
