I wanna know your strengths.
I wanna know your strengths.
First impressions (both ways... I'm good at making them, as well as judging character from them)
Being a salesman
i'm not exceptionally good at anything i would want to be exceptionally good at
Modesty in this thread.
I think I can say, more than most things, I have excellent recall of just about anything. It's not photographic, but I wouldn't put it far from it.
As soon as I meet somebody face to face, I never forget their name. Also I'm a fairly good swimmer. Not fast, just strong.
im good at being useless
I can play a guitar better than almost every non-professional musician i've met.
I'm the best there is at smoking weed. Does that count? Also it's only a good ability if what you perceive of yourself is true.
no i really have nothing i could say in this thread ask my mom
Seriously though, I am fucking awesome at photo retouching, especially for not having any professional training. My dream is to work for an ad agency, Vogue, or other fashion magazine.
I have a lot of other examples if anyone wishes to see.
I should upload the pictures I have from when I was modeling so I can see what I would look like in Vogue.
I can handle bad customers with ease; the irate black woman, the uppity fucker who demands free shit, the mentally deranged, you name it. I've even dealt with a handful of con artists while working at various jobs.
Judging others whilst ignoring my own flaws.
One thing I know I'm very good at is having and appropriately displaying empathy - I read other people very well and tend to know what kind of help or advice they really need. As far as supportive friends go, I'm a good one to have. To even it out, though, I am not very self-forgiving. It is, without a doubt, my greatest flaw.
It's fucked up, honestly. I can fix someone else's life in several intense talking/crying/hugging sessions, but when it comes to fixing my own shit, I'm useless. It's like back in high school and freshman year of uni when I did everyone else's homework and got them good grades but didn't turn in my own shit and failed.

Oh hey I want to showcase more of my skill. Hellooo Seventeen Magazine internship!
(Now that I look at this picture, I think I need to work on it more.)
I also am an excellent salesperson. I was in sales for a few years and made a good bit of money. I left to pursue the field I am currently in for a substantial boost in pay. Manipulating the conversation or other people's reactions comes fairly easy to me. For example: when I picked the name HopeYouDie I did it for a reason. Why would anyone like someone who hopes you death? You wouldn't and shouldn't and most of you don't. So how easy was that? My persona @ this 'forum' is the heel. The one person no one likes. Mission accomplished. Even if you ALL hate me I still have ALL your attention. Therefore I am still in control. See these things just come naturally to me. I enjoy it as well.
Alcoholism. Some would say it's an inherited trait, and while this is partially true, I've put a whole lot of work into it as well.
