    What's your sole redeeming feature?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by paperbackwriter, Aug 20, 2018.

    I know your flaws are too numerous to count. So what is your one redeeming feature? What aspect of you, do your friends say "Well at least Mark is honest." or "I'll say this for Mary. She is hard-working."

    Persistence :p I asked my friend what she thought mine was and this is what she said. Pretty sure she meant it as a joke, though. While it’s been useful to me, it’s more of a flaw than a strength in my character.

    Speak for yourself! :rofl:


    I don't feel I need to be "redeemed", but I do realise that I make mistakes which can sometimes be harmful to myself or others. Despite these mistakes, I am always well-intentioned, and accept when I have been wrong. In my view, that's good enough.

    I can smell when the long-bone is bereft of marrow and leave the other dogs to their pointless, fruitless snarling.

    "you're too nice"....... a redeeming quality or a character flaw, the world (myself included) may never know

    A sole is rather restricting but my first proposal is genuine. I can't find the adjective for it.o_O

    I haven't got any redeeming qualities.

    Saying I have "redeeming qualities" implies I have flaws to redeem.

    I forgive you all for mediocre replies.
    There .Forgiveness is possibly my most redeeming feature.

    As a squirrel, my snarling is pointy and fruity.

    My redeeming feature is, I guess, patience. I have a lot of patience. For example, I'm 57 and I'm still not a rich and famous prize-winning writer, and that doesn't bother me. :p

    Seriously, I've been told many times that it's a shame I don't have kids, because I'd be a great dad. I ask why, and people say it's my patience. Apparently, it takes patience to raise kids.

    It has been written that I am magnanimous. I can't even spell magnaminis!

    I still can't decide whether this is beautiful or horrifying. Maybe it's both.

    When I was young I was very nice. As an ex said "You may not look good, but you're nice."

    As an adult it's more the other direction. "You may not be nice, but you look good."

    Is looks a redeeming quality? No? I'll have to think about this.

    I'm smart, which is about the same as being developmentally disabled in society. I can't say it's redeeming, just different.

    Humility is good but not too much or it is a spoiler.
