Perhaps. But it is people's flaws that make them unique. And often are the very things we love about them. Things that those people themselves cringe at and feel self-conscious about.
And it was with that in mind, that this thread was created
I originally wrote that this contraposes my own life philosophy so, so much. But now I wonder if I'm simply taking another route to that particular truth.
'Flaws' can be spun into great and wonderful gifts, but only when the person holding them is (a) mature and (b) given opportunities to do so. Opportunities and growth (into maturity) come when one is given the confidence that he needs to view his flaws as gifts. One's given that confidence when he learns to accept himself, which can be facilitated by the love, support, and acceptance from others--such as in this thread.
(My own blind spot is that I don't accept flaws, which is a flaw in and of itself; the gift spun from it perhaps being that it keeps me driven. Mayhaps a product of a 3w4's struggle with reconciling identity, ideal, and image )
