Most Helpful Guy
My two biggest strengths are my strong optimism/positive thinking and my insatiable curiosity. I have always been a very optimistic person. This has come in quite handy in many tough and seemingly hopeless life situations, especially when my physical disability was putting great troubles on me and loved ones of mine (such as my parents) were in despair because of that. I think no matter how difficult the situation, I can always see the bright side of it somehow, without even trying hard. In fact, I have so much optimism inside of me that I almost function like an emotional power plant and give off a lot of positive vibes to other people. Especially my girlfriend loves this about me, since she tends to be quite pessimistic at times.
The other strength, my curiosity, is also something that I've had since my early childhood. My parents like to tell stories about how I would constantly bug them with interesting questions that were hard to answer. Apparently, my siblings didn't really do that. For example when I was 6, I really got into astronomy and starting from there, I wanted to know eeeeverything about the universe :-). Later in my school career, my curiosity helped me a lot to get good grades because though I had to study a lot in the schools I attended, I also enjoyed it a lot. I love learning new things.
My biggest weaknesses are probably the fact that I get tend to get easily bored of things (not people though) and more importantly, that I can be pretty socially awkward with people I don't know well.
Despite my love for learning new things, I unfortunately have a pretty low entertainment span. This is especially true for projects I'm doing. I don't think I could build something for example (be it a computer or a tree house etc.) because after 2-3 days, I'd lose interest and would want to move on to something new. The socially awkward weakness thing also has to do with the fact that I hate small talk. I don't know how to do it and I don't see the point of it. For example when I get to know new people, I'd rather ask them totally random or deep philosophical or political questions instead of "How old are you?" and "Where do you come from?" because those superficial questions usually really don't interest me. I'm also not very good at thinking of things to say in general when I meet somebody new (unless it's a formal relationship) and so I would just be quite and look at the floor and that creates a lot of uncomfortable, awkward silences ;-).1
