I think I can come across as fairly abrasive, in particular when I type things out online and often give people the wrong impression or come across as disliking people when I don't. I'm pretty blunt in real life too but there I have my natural charm and winning smile to smooth things over(cough).

PS: I hear this is one of the most popular questions now asked in job interviews as well, so it might pay to come up with something decent if you are job hunting.

I can be a completely rude person online but I struggle with being rude or argumentative in real life. Just can't do it. I'm too nice maybe?

I'm lazy. I'm an alcoholic. I always think I'm right and I hate admitting when I'm wrong. I've been known to steamroll people in conversations and kind of drown out their opinions with the belief that mine are superior. I'm slightly racist, not in a hateful way but in a way that I simply prefer my own versus others if given a choice. I use people to get ahead.

Holy shit I'm a bad person lol. I still have some redeeming qualities. I think...

Everything is a short-coming. Even though I excel at some things more than others, I can always do better and I won't stop trying.

Tip: Don't ever tell a recruiter or hiring manager that some people perceive you as rude, online or url.

im gonna come back to this one.

'I am too harsh on myself' could be one of them. It used to be for me till I realized I was doing my best and that would have to be good enough. :)
