Speaker A: One of my worst flaws is my impatience. I often burn my mouth with hot food because I can’t wait for it to cool down. And if I have to stand in a queue for anything, I get annoyed very quickly. Queuing always puts me in a bad mood. Sometimes I’m rude to shop assistants after waiting a long time to be served, even if I know it’s not their fault. I need to learn ways of calming my mind in those situations.
Speaker B: I try too hard to be popular, and as a result I’m not always honest about what I want to do. I’ve been to so many concerts and films I didn’t really enjoy, just because I thought the friend who invited me was cool and I wanted to be more like them. Sometimes I look at people’s social media pages to see how many friends I have and I compare their total with mine, which is crazy, really. It’s quality that counts with friendship.
Speaker С: I grew up in a small village where everybody knew each other and everybody was trustworthy. Even though I live in a large city now, I’m too trusting towards people, especially salespeople. If someone tells me they can give me a special deal or discount, I totally believe it and part with my money every time. I need to learn to say no to people who use aggressive sales techniques.
Speaker D: I need to be more adventurous with my clothes. I wear neutral colours for both work and socialisng, because I don’t like to draw too much attention to myself, and at home I wear baggy sports tops and bottoms. I should expand my wardrobe so that I’ve got less conservative clothes for going out, and smarter clothes for work and I shouldn’t be so keen to fade into the background.
Speaker E: I think I’m a very sociable and even confident person when I’m talking to one person or a few close friends, but for some reason I lose all my confidence when I have to talk to a large group, especially if it’s people I don’t know. Thankfully I don’t have to do it too often in my job. My face goes bright red when I have to do any kind of public speaking. Deep breathing helps, though.
Speaker F: My problem is that I get bored too easily. I find it hard to sit still for very long. While my friends like nothing more than sunbathing and reading, I have to be doing something active, so it’s hard to find holidays and weekend trips that we can all enjoy. Even at home I find it hard to relax with a book or film. One of my friends says I should get a dog as all the walking would tire me out nicely.
