Consider these questions:
>Human Strengths
>1. What are the most important human strengths?
>2. Why do we (or at least some of us) have these
>3. Why do some of us not have these strengths?
>4. How can these strengths be further strengthened
>and spread more widely?
>5. How can these strengths be best applied to
>improve the general "human condition?"
>Human Weaknesses
>1. What are the most important human weaknesses?
>2. Why do some people suffer from these weaknesses?
>3. If applicable, why do some people not suffer
>from these weaknesses?
>4. What are the consequences of these weaknesses?
>5. How can people overcome these weaknesses?

Originally, I was only going to ask about weaknesses.
I need to write a report on the "basic human problem."
I thought that a debate or survey would provide some
useful information about what people think are the most
important weaknesses.

I mentioned my idea of asking "weakness questions" on
the Internet to a teacher friend. She suggested that
I should also ask about strengths.

The primary purpose for posing these questions is to
gain further insight into the greatest human strengths
and weaknesses and what could or should be done about

A secondary purpose is to generate a classification
or taxonomy of human strengths and weaknesses. So,
please list and/or discuss what you consider important
human strengths and weaknesses.

An important consideration is my thinking that progress
in the direction of greater freedom could be accelerated
if more freedom activists could identify their greatest
strengths and find out how to best utilize them.

It would also be useful to us to identify important
weaknesses and find out how to overcome them.

I would appreciate your feedback.
