Fatal Flaw Quiz - What Is Your Fatal Flaw

Take this Fatal Flaw quiz to find out. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

Do you ever find yourself debating just to argue? Some disputes are pleasurable for both sides, but if you find yourself in that situation frequently, where you end yourself yelling harder to establish your point, you may be merely argumentative.

It may appear that way, but having the last word has no value, and if you find that people avoid talking to you or give in solely to silence you, you may be going too far. Very unappealing.

Pick your arguments intelligently. Is the issue you’re debating so important? Arguing all the time is a sign of arrogance, so try to give the other person a chance to be right.

Telling a lie socially—when the situation dictates that either the person you’re talking to doesn’t need or deserve the truth, or that the person will be damaged as a result of the truth—is, let’s face it, occasionally an acceptable option. But denying the truth regularly, especially to avoid the repercussions of what you’ve done, is unappealing and hazardous.

Consider this: why am I lying? Is it a habit, do I want the other person to think good of me, or do I want them to be disappointed? People require the truth from time to time, even if it is difficult to hear. Work on it.

It’s a frustrating world, and when we don’t get our way or our plans are sidetracked, we can become irritable. Everyone gets frustrated, but we don’t have to lose control and respond inappropriately. If you feel your frustrations rising, resist the want to lash out. Maybe it’s best to just walk away. Take a deep breath and count to ten… you get the idea.

Is it necessary for you to be correct all of the time? Do you always have the right answer and expect everyone to know it? You might be a little arrogant. Also, you must try to play this Fatal Flaw quiz.

Nobody likes a know-it-all, so why indulge in this personality flaw? If it is important for you to constantly emphasize your “rightness,” you are demonstrating conceit—do you truly believe you are always correct or do you just want other people to believe you are?

And you could be wrong! Eating crow is also unpleasant. Is it more important to be correct, or is it more important to establish better relationships?

The perfectionist is the most difficult on themselves, yet it makes you into a crazy person that no one wants to be around. Perfectionism isn’t about being flawless; it’s about believing you have to be perfect, that you have it in you to produce a perfect job, and failing to do so, failing to achieve the ideal results, leaves you disappointed.

If it describes you, remember this: “No one is perfect, not even me.” Take a deep breath and acknowledge your flaws. Self-criticism is your enemy.

About the quiz

Things go wrong in significant ways now and again, and sometimes it’s our fault. We must accept responsibility for the mistakes we make in our life. Taking on the victim role and blaming others is a harmful habit that has to be eradicated. Furthermore, people grow tired of your pity party indulgences.

As youngsters, one of the earliest skills we learn is how to share with others. It is the appropriate thing to do to share your toys and treats. However, there are some things we do that are selfish that you may not be aware of. People who are entirely preoccupied with themselves are referred to as narcissistic.

Do you find yourself preoccupied with yourself all of the time? Do you ever listen well? Narcissistic persons talk about their issues, their accomplishments, and everything else to the exclusion of everyone else’s problems and accomplishments. Their friendships are usually one-sided, and a one-sided friendship isn’t truly a friendship at all.

What is Your Fatal Flaw? – THISDAYLIVE


Let’s start by attempting to define what a fatal flaw is. “Fatal flaws are weaknesses that are extreme and can have a dramatic, negative effect on a leader, seriously hampering their contribution to the organisation and their career progress. Everyone else can see this clearly; but the person with the fatal flaw almost never does.”

Data shows that someone perceived very poorly on any single, important leadership trait pays a high price. If their score is in the bottom 10 percent on one skill, they will rank in the bottom fifth overall – no matter how strong other strengths are. “Bottomline, leaders don’t need to be extremely good at everything, but they generally cannot be totally void in one area and still succeed.”

Data also says, most of the fatal flaws noticed as “sins of omission” from leaders have been in the areas of a lack of strategic thinking, not taking responsibility for outcomes, not building strong relationships, or “sins of commission”, having a terrible temper, an executive who lies, is arrogant, lacks empathy, etc.

When I read literature to support this article, it got me thinking. You and I know many leaders who have at least 2-3 sins of omission and as well as sins of commission rising to the top of their career. My conclusion is that, it was pure luck or destiny. Each leader I know with these weaknesses, now I’m talking about at the CEO level, had these leadership positions fall on them because of extenuating circumstances in the organisations they led. Had the situation been normal, where there was competition or a vote to attain these positions, many of them would not have achieved this feat in their careers.

Haven cleared that exception, let’s look at normal people like you and I and leaders who have had to go through an evaluation system to achieve the next level of growth in their careers.

Let’s start with me. Like I have mentioned on this page before in my article “It Takes More Than Hard Work. Politics is Key!” I thought it was all about getting the work done, being innovative, pushing myself and my team to excel. At the lower rung of my career, this objective worked very well for me and was appreciated by the organisation I worked in. As I moved up the ladder, I started to suffer from a fatal sin of omission, which was very hard for me to see. The main reason was, though the organisation was a meritocracy, I thought that was all that mattered. Doing a good job!

It was not immediately visible to me that I was suffering from a fatal sin of omission of “not building strong relationships”. It took me a while to realise that there was more at play than just the work, it was more about your alignments, who was with whom, were you perceived as loyal or subordinate enough, etc. Your work still spoke for you, but there was more that was required. Let me also say that merit was still highly prized and rewarded, and was not detrimental to my growth.

I also had a colleague, who did excellent work, but her sin of omission was also a lack of “not building strong relationships”. She was quiet and reserved, but everybody felt the job she was performing required a more extroverted personality. Being her direct supervisor, I disagreed with this assertion, because I found her very effective on her job and knew that everybody could not have the same personality. She could never understand this requirement, and it was detrimental to her growth.

I have had bosses, whose sins of omission, I felt were a lack of strategic thinking. They were also good at getting the work done, but lacked the strategic thinking of ensuring that innovation and “new thinking” for the future was woven into their work. We all also know leaders who lack empathy or jokingly degrade the people they interact with or work with as well as leaders who do not take responsibility for any negative outcome performed by their team members. The greatest sin in my view is the leader that lies. Thank God in my over 20 years as a professional, I came across very few but one in particular with a penchant to lie.

Research has shown that many of us are not aware of our flaws. Jack Zenger, the author of “Most Leaders Know Their Strengths – but Are Oblivious to Their Weaknesses”, said becoming more self-aware is where to start.
He says there are several ways you can learn to identify your weaknesses, and start to figure out whether they are serious or mild.

Start by finding a “truth teller”, who will share honest feedback with you. He says data shows, and from my own personal experience that our colleagues know about or see firsthand failing in us. We just need to find these people and encourage them to give us feedback.

If that doesn’t work, hire an external consultant to give you feedback. I know of a colleague who did this. I know because I was one of those who provided feedback to the outside consultant. I was very proud of her for going the extra mile to be self-aware.

You are not alone if you do not know your fatal flaw. Over two thirds of leaders do not recognize this deficiency because it takes a while for the direct correlation of our flaw to start showing. It is important to start evaluating yourself early in your growth trajectory, to determine where your errors of omission and commission are and start to actively working on correcting them. Good luck!

EDMS market flooded with fatal flaws

Over the past month, news has been received from a number of companies at once. A dark gloomy shadow came to them understanding - there is a fatal flaw in the implemented EDMS.

Over the past month, news has been received immediately from a number of companies. As a dark, gloomy shadow, an understanding came to them - there is a fatal flaw in the implemented EDMS. nine0003

A common feature of the clients who applied was one circumstance - the change of power. Somewhere ITshnoy, somewhere the business of power. Some of our clients, some of our competitors.

What is this fatal flaw?! The answer is simple - they did not implement the EDMS!
This beautiful meme (http://lurkmore.to/Fatal_Flaw) perfectly sums up what's going on.

Let's take the history of one company. A large company, I must say...

A long time ago, in the well-fed zero, for ages, namely 5 years ago, they introduced an expensive and notorious ECM system from a major American manufacturer. Well, how ECM... they implemented the office at such a level that it probably wasn't worth it. nine0003

For 2 whole years they implemented it, improved it, used it. Power has changed. A fatal flaw was revealed in the system - they did not implement it!

No sooner said than done. They bought a good, and for them, in particular, suitable, for my modest taste, EDMS. For the whole 2 years they implemented it, refined it, used it. Power has changed. A fatal flaw was revealed in the system - they did not implement it!

And now our turn has come... apparently.

Why does SED come under distribution so often? I think it's about the correct weight of a sparring partner - not as hard and risky as ERP, but quite significant. nine0003

Dear clients, let me remind you of Zhvanetsky, he gave an exhaustive answer:
- Conservatory, graduate school, fraud, scam, court, Siberia.
- Conservatory, private lessons, another private lesson, dentures, gold, furniture, court, Siberia.
- Conservatory, accompanist, trade college, head. production, caviar, crabs, currency, gold, court, Siberia.
- Maybe fix something in the conservatory?

There is a fatal flaw in your five-year plan

  • Five-year plans and debilitating morning habits are often seen as integral parts of the path to success. nine0048
  • However, obsession with the ideal life can distract us from being grateful for our life as it is.
  • A huge number of experts and publicists recommend appreciating the present right now.

Essayist Charles Chu's past idea of ​​an ideal life is easily recognizable to anyone who was 22 years old and suffered from idealism. Travel around the world. Become a millionaire entrepreneur. Charm all the opposite sex, and then marry a doctor of science who is equally fluent in literature and mathematics. nine0003

This was his "Eight Year Plan" and it was the answer to his current dissatisfaction and social isolation.

In a post for The Polymath Project, Chu explains why this plan was so flawed—and why he ended up rethinking every aspect of it.

Life is out of control

Many of us have tried to create an ideal daily routine, and at the same time plan our lives for the next ten years, or even more. These attempts may include imitating people like Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos in order to inject some of their success into our own lives. nine0003

But, as Chu writes, "We have far less control over life than we would like." It is hardly possible to reproduce in real life the rise at five in the morning, meditation and sports exercises.

Many people are now moving away from obsessing over the perfect morning routine or life plans. For example, productivity and time management expert Laura Vanderkam doesn't have a morning routine.

Vanderkam records and plays sports every day, but very rarely does it at the same time. One reason is that people get so caught up in the ideal routine that if they miss a small part, they immediately discard the whole plan. nine0003

Whether we're trying to excel at something small, like starting to go to bed at 9 pm, or something bigger, like becoming a traveller, it can all be a challenging – and isolating experience. Chu writes:

“When I was most obsessed with my Eight Year Plan, I suffered from tyranny, self-hatred, and sadness. I 'dumped' friends and girls if they weren't beneficial for my personal growth. Time spent unproductively was considered by me as a failure of my willpower and planning. I rarely took days off, and when I did, I only did it so I could come back and work even harder. nine0003

I tried to compress all my sides into a single, clear and concentrated point. But over-focusing leads to tunnel vision, and tunnel vision means that much of the picture is not seen.

One day my girlfriend asked me, ‘Why don’t you ever stop to just look at the sky?’”

Concentrating on building an ideal life can distract from the beauty of today

Instead of being obsessed with the idea of ​​an ideal life, we should appreciate the present as it is. nine0003

The true ideal life is “one that can only exist in the imagination – or, in my case, always some five to eight years into the future,” writes Chu. Obsession with something that cannot exist leads us to lose sight of what we could enjoy right now.

Today's approach to designing an ideal life with grueling morning routines and big plans doesn't help us appreciate the present moment.
