One shows a humbleness and is able to realize the fact one does make mistakes. It's also much better to learn from ones mistakes, than outright denying a mistake being made.

No, I know my faults, but I am still mean.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/22/04 - 12:30:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
sometimes.

Well, that depends on whether they've started trying to right their faults. Someone can realize their faults and then flaunt them or dwell on them, and that only makes the person harder to be around.

I think people become more likeable when people accept their faults.

Not always

If they were a likeable person to begin with, then they become more likeable.

Um, no. Then they are just a self aware irritation.

And some people, who weren't so irritating before, get all depressed and whiney over the fact that they know their faults.

^if they're passive (don't do anything about them) and whiny about them, then yes.

I know I became much more likable when I became aware of my faults. I have a sense of humor about my human failings and I'm no longer an annoying perfectionista. Now, I have the unfortunate pleasure of living with a roommate who is completely unaware of her faults and believes the world should bow down to her will.

I suppose they can but not necessarily. Only if the new outlook changed them and made them try to work on their faults.
18 yrs ago - Friday 6/11/04 - 12:31:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess.

Maybe their faults are only faults in your eyes. Do you mean for them to change in order to suit you better?
18 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/22/04 - 10:36:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
^^ Good point.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 1:12:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
not all the time
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/22/05 - 3:14:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
generally ... unless they go on and on about them; then they're just annoying.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 2/5/05 - 6:55:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
no
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/3/05 - 6:36:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, then they don't think their perfect

Sometimes. but people can be annoying when they admit their faults also if they constantly talk about them/complain/point them out. Sometimes it is arrogance that causes them to point out their faults so people will see them as better.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 3/3/06 - 9:20:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think so.... I mean it's becoming when people realize their faults and accept them.

This question reminded me of King of Queens. It annoys me how she's always complaining about him...

No, they're just easier to make fun of.

That's what I think, too.
If I already like someone, their honesty about their own shortcomings would make me like them more.

If I already disliked them, I'd probably continue to dislike them. I'd have more respect for them for being open about their faults, but I *still* wouldn't like them, per se.

16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/28/06 - 7:59:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmmm Is that why no one likes me?
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/29/06 - 1:46:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. The same number of people hate me now that did before I realized what a selfish bitch I am.
