    I'm sick with the flu right now and have been feeling particularly whiny because of it.

    Not really. I may feel annoyed by some stuff, but it's not that common, and if I do, I usually don't let others know. I try to overcome all difficulties to succeed.

    Yes, yes, YES! It's definitely something that I do and others notice about me. Sometimes it annoys even me! A friend will say "why do you complain so much?" and I think "yeah, why am I complaining?" I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that I get annoyed easily.

    This is especially a difficult trait for me to overcome because I think I'd like to get into social work and I know I'll need to develop a very positive attitude to avoid burning out with rage or depression.

    Sorry for babbling; I kind of thought I was the only person in the world who recognized this in themself. I feel kind of relieved, as selfish as that is!

    Oh my gosh .. i feel like a really bad person now after reading your comments.

    I bitch, moan, rant and curse .. if everybody else just did as i asked the first time and did it properly then i wouldn't have to ask over and over again (esp regarding kids) ..but i wont express my anger/frustration towards people .. i keep it all inside then blow occasionally .. i don't try to work things out myself as im so indecisive .. i never know whats right so the cogs just keep going in my head .. and negativity ... that should of been my middle name. I don't know why i am so negative .. i am not that bad looking, i have 2 good kids although at a very young age, I worked for a bank before being made redundant .. I am aware that i am very good with my brick wall that stops me from getting hurt .. I offer amazing advice to people which i don't use myself ..

    See i feel i am moaning now .. lol .. Ahh just the daily turmoil i go through with myself .. sorry

    Sounds like me! I think you may also have cracked the reason why people laugh when I'm not trying to be intentionally funny. If I come out with a negative statement it totally catches me off guard when people burst out laughing!

    Whining no. Criticism yes. And a LOT of it. I've got my standards. Fail to meet them and I'll pick you apart. Not sure I should be proud of this part of my personality, but it's there.

    This happened to me today! I have a very soft and "sweet" voice (I can't help it...I just do!) and I'm pretty go with the flow or retreat. My boss ALWAYS laughs when I swear! When I get frustrated, I shake my fists in the air and stomp my feet and that always gets a laugh too. Which is probably good, because I can't help laughing too when they are and I forget about being frustrated.

    If I were asked what one of my biggest faults was....I would say whining and bitching! Granted, it's only during PMS...but my PMS lasts two weeks out of the month. I can be very Dr. Jeckyl/Mr. Hyde. If I'm forced to go to a social event when I don't feel like it...you will hear about it for 3 days! And I tend to bitch the whole time we are there. I have to get the INFP mad props there...he never tells me to shut the hell up (like I would!) I didn't really realize this until I realized that my ISFJ best buddy (but I rarely see her anymore) will write me long rambling e-mails that are just bitching and complaining. I don't write e-mails so much, but I just say it! Sometimes I can't even stand myself and will myself to shut up.

    A really weird thing I've noticed though...if I call someone to bitch and leave them a message, they always call me back!!! I have a friend who I rarely hear from unless I call her and tell her I need to bitch.

    I'm easily annoyed, irritated, and God forbid you "mess up my order". I don't show it outside, but I'm incredibly off-center on the inside if that happens. I don't vocalize my complaints most of the time, but....

    When I'm at home, I vent a lot. Mostly to Mom, who completely understands where I'm coming from almost 100% of the time. My complaints are frequent, yet legit somehow. Mom always did say I'm a whiner. Although she puts me in a box with the entire male gender, saying, "Men are such whiners."
