Oh, and I lost horribly. And this says much about my personality — I’d rather lose (make mistakes) while experimenting with newness and beauty. This trait has helped me in language acquisitions and many others areas but stung me in others !
Question to readers: Tell us about some trait that you know both benefits and harms you — a trait that you are actually very glad you have in spite of the trade-offs.
