Which is your favorite deadly sin?

I'll take Lust with a side of Sloth, thank you.

Pride, Lust, Sloth, Gluttony. That just about sums up my life. The other three rarely pop up for me.

I take them in my own order.

First, I am greedy. I like to have things and people under my control, I am a control freak. I envy someone for what they have, which triggers my greed and greed is due to my vanity. So, I lust after something or someone. I indulge as I see fit, which could be considered gluttony because I take more than I need. I enjoy excess. It's always better to have more than you need than less than you need.

Sloth I'm not too big on. I'm very proactive, it's my nature. And Wrath? Who doesn't have that on occasion?

I LOVE wrath! I love letting anger seep through my blood, darkening it. I love slinking about an otherwise mundane place like a serpent. I love the way it makes me bounce up and go hustle for my survival. I love the way it keeps me away from the herd at least mentally if not geographically. I'm now ironically grateful for the things that made me angry like the (equally ironic) pressure for women to never be angry. I love the way it guides me towards self-preservation. I love being cool, calculating, rational, and acerbic. I love dark music like heavy metal, African, voodoo/candomble sounds, and crunk. I love angry intellectuals like Ayn Rand and Christopher Hitchens. I like dark nails, strong drink, sleeping in pitch blackness on a frosted winter night. I like how I seem deep for someone my age. I love how anger makes do epicurean things like have wild passionate sex. As a Satanic person I don't listen to the herd's insistence that one must strive for inner peace, joy, and heavenly bliss. That crap is so overrated!

I also love pride and lust. I would say those are my three best indulgences.

Sloth is nice sometimes, but I end up cursing myself when I should have been getting things done!

"Idle hands..."

Aside from that, it's not a conscious thing for me. I've been Christ-free for like 9 years now, so thinking in terms of "sinning" isn't relative to my thought process.

I think in terms of, "What could I do to get the most happiness?", of course in an Epicurean manner. To do otherwise would be a real injustice to myself.

Oh, I don't know. I could put them in order of personal preference. I'll even give you percentages because you like physics which probably means you like quantifiable results. Thus, I will make up some percentages to go with my "sins." Just for you, Magister Nemo. Merry Xmas!

Lust 40%
Sloth 20%
Vanity 10%
Envy 10%
Pride 10%
Greed 5%
Wrath 5%
Equals 100% Bonnie!

Why thank you!

However to underline what I mean, consider how your percentages might change in the following contexts:

IRS Audit:

Lust 0% (The auditor isn't even cute).
Sloth 0% (I better show up on time and with my documentation).
Vanity 5% (I don't feel all that much in control here).
Envy 5% (I wish I lived outside the US).
Pride 5% (I wish I didn't have to put up with this nonsense).
Greed 50% (I want to keep my money!).
Wrath 35% (God damned tax man!).

Upon achieving orgasm:

Lust 100% (This is my universe).
Sloth 0% (What?).
Vanity 0% (What?).
Envy 0% (What?).
Pride 0% (What?).
Greed 0% (What?).
Wrath 0% (What?).

True, those percentages were meant to be at the "sitting in front of my computer reading posts on LttD" state. Also, I somehow missed gluttony. Oh well. They say that attention to detail is important for a Satanist, but if it is a requirement then my application is going to be denied.

I noticed you doubled up on pride (both "pride" and "vanity" listed) and cut out "gluttony". Then again, that's precisely what I plan to do once the feasts of this holiday are over \:\/ [rubs belly]

I certainly recall a time this year when I managed to pull all 7, celebrating my birthday in Las Vegas. I even made a collage for it to remind me.

I was a horrible Catholic, but that might have something to do with hitting on the priests or telling the arch-bishop that the devil was talking to me while I was in the shower (it was amusing, they made a big to-do about doing a blessing). As far as confessional, the people in line behind me would try to listen in to hear what I was saying. That's a major no-no, hope they added that one to their own ;\)

Bonnie, I enjoy all 7 sins, but probably more greed, lust, and pride more than others.

Thanks Bonnie, I'll take that as a compliment. Lust and pride go hand in hand for me, and more is always better (which is where the greed comes in).

Out of all the Seven Deadlies, I indulge in avarice the least, I think.

Most days, I think my top sins are gluttony, lust, and wrath.

Wrath? I've not seen that side of you. Then again, perhaps that's something for which to be thankful ;\)

I'm right with you on the lust and gluttony, for sure, though avarice is rather dear to My black little heart.

See a post I made about it on another messageboard here:

http://bauermusic.forumcircle.com/viewtopic.php?t=81

(that particular forum in the board is intended for things one loves, so I made a post about money)

I think Pride, Avarice, and Envy are My greatest motivators in the world.

(oh, god, i think i laughed so hard i peed my pants!)

I would say, 30% Wrath, 30% Lust, and than the rest fall in suit. I would have to say, Sloth is my least favorite, im very aggressive, and very impaitent. Anger is how i fuel my paintings, and heated debates are exciting. When i was studying painting, we would dedicate a lot of time to ripping eachother into peices (emotionally anyway) so that we could become better artists.

Needless to say it was the highlight of my academic career.

That's one of my all-time favorite songs too!

For me: I like all the sins, but these days I'm especially into greed, pride, and gluttony.

Greed is driving me to enroll in a very tough full-time program to further my lucrative web geek skills. I could take an easier career route, but why would I?

If I wasn't single, lust would of course top the list (unless toys count...)

Ah, yes! Envy! I'm not especially avaricious (unless you count books and certain collectibles, maybe), but I'd gotten them both confused, so I meant envy. I don't normally experience envy or jealousy, for the most part.

I'm usually in control of my emotions enough not to be wrathful TOWARDS someone directly, but there are plenty of people and things that get on my nerves.

My greatest motivators? Wrath and vainglory/pride.

I'd second that - TrojZyr, whenever you enter a thread I feel a lovely calming influence covering everything. It's one of the reasons I'm so glad you're around. \:\)

I think I'm definitely a lust and pride boy (I'm always horny and I think I'm better than everyone else) - I'm not wrathful and I'm not really that motivated by money so guess I fail on greed. Saying that this winter has hit me quite hard and I've been really low on energy, so I guess I'm inadvertently slothful. When we had our team meeting at work and we had to say what we were looking forward to at xmas I said "sleeping 14 hours a day".

I'm in agreement with Magister Nemo on this. My personal favorites, though, would be lust, greed, pride, and gluttony. In my experiences these 4 intertwine the most. Maybe they could be all wrapped up into one??

Awww, you're a dear.

Most of you guys tend to make me the opposite of angry. ;\)

But, stick me in front of a newspaper, or a movie or TV show with stupid or frustrating characters, and I'll screech like a banshee.

While watching TV--aside from when I watch cartoons--I can barely go five minutes without commanding somebody to DIE or SUCK IT or FALL IN A WOODCHIPPER FOR THE LOVE OF GOD ALREADY, or telling them they're TOO STUPID TO LIVE. Granted, I'm usually having fun while I'm venting, but the sentiments and feelings are usually more-or-less real and genuine, and come out of an actual place.

I've got very high standards as to what separates worthiness from worthlessness, stupidity from insight, injustice from justice, bad conduct from good conduct. So, when stupidity, injustice, worthlessness, and bad conduct win the day, I react with dark and ironic humor or seething rage, or, more often, a volatile combo of the two.

When I can't freely express that frustration to an understanding party or audience, and/or I can't solve the problem in any real and permanent way, steam builds up. Venting appropriately lets off some steam.

A sizable part of this anger is what fuels my desire to write. I write the best satire and the most biting commentary when I am at just the right level of frustration. If I'm not passionate--extremely sad, extremely happy, or extremely pissed-- about a matter, the writing just tends to lack that special something. So, it's also a matter of balance; remaining passionate enough to feel creatively inspired and enlivened, but not getting so steeped in certain emotions so that I stop having fun overall.

But, 99% of the time, I make a point to never take that anger out on people directly, and I often find that it is rather easy for people to inspire empathy in me--if only a tiny bit--once I interact with them in the flesh or cyber-flesh. The people who don't do that for me are either truly awful to the core, or they keep picking fights.

Amen to that.

Zamo says a LOT of things I can't get away with actually saying. I actually have one strip I won't publish until my mother's mother dies, just to keep the family peace. Of course, sometimes she's just an obnoxious iguana shooting her mouth off for her own amusement, but that's just sometimes. Also, some are quieter comics, coming from a more curious/"isn't that weird?" observational state, but the funniest ones came out of some sort of strong emotion.

I find the act of writing in itself keeps me from getting so steeped in those emotions. It's a form of venting in itself.

Yes, exactly. Cute comic, by the way!

I, too, have characters who say horrible, vicious things that I could never say, and go after targets I can't attack directly in my daily life. They make Zamo look like Gandhi.

Art can be a great way to vent.

I would have to say that the "sin" that appears most in my nature would be vanity. I cannot walk past a mirror without looking at myself, and making sure that I approve of my appearance. I spend about an hour in front of the mirror on a good day. On a bad day it could range from an hour to two. In my eyes I find myself to be very beautiful, and love to look at myself. Although I do not wear a lot of make-up I personally have to make sure I look good for myself. In turn I feel if I look good to myself other people will see this as well. Not that I care to much of what people think of me.

Wrath is something I show often as well as strongly believe in. If you piss me off you deserve to be yelled at, and if you know me well enough you would know not to do so. I think that everyone should voice their opinion if someone offends you or gets on your nerves.

I can also be very greedy. I want more and more and i cannot get enough of a good thing.

For the others I'm sure I do them for it is in my nature. They just do not stand out as much as these three. At least not to me.

Thanks!

Zamo fell asleep halfway through the History Channel bio on Ghandi, but what she took away from the idea of non-violent protest is that you can get what you want without bothering to do anything about it. Sounds like a philosophy an iguana can really get behind. ;\)

My absolute favorite sin is Lust, followed by Gluttony. Both create great desire and bring great satisfaction when indulged. Wrath has never been my thing, as most irritating and stupid behaviors are undeserving of the acknowledgment that anger gives them. Pride is fun, but sadly it is not something that I indulge in often. I enjoy it like I would a juicy fillet mignon (there goes gluttony again...) which is wonderful but becomes less so if eaten at every meal. Greed is something I have just begun to appreciate, as my previous life situation left little to even be greedy about. Envy, however, has always been a common factor in my life, although it too is just beginning to be appreciated for the indulgence that it is. And Sloth...ahhh sloth. I would go crazy without a little laziness, but then again I hate when it is taken to an extreme. I have seen too much sloth in my life to truly love it and therefore it is probably my least liked deadly sin.

Had to look them all up but I think I'm guilty on all of them depending on what mood I am in. Vanity would score lowest on my "most used" list though and Lust highest.

I don't recognize these sins as anything other than "the human condition" so I don't really have a favourite.

I like to think I have a good balance of them all, too much of one could be dangerous.

I'm jumping in now. First post besides an introduction, here goes. \:\)


I don't sin. I see that point has already been made numerous times, so I'll skip anything else on the subject. ;\)

I don't have a favorite from the list of so-called sins. There's a time and place for everything... I will say pride is something I've held in high opinion since I decided other people's opinions didn't matter unless I let them.

Still, sloth is one of the least desirable personality traits I've seen, probably because I'm a very greedy girl and it's hard to get good food, sexy clothes, and amazing books when you're laying around.

That doesn't mean I don't appreciate a few days out of the year where I can just let my brain and muscle melt as I watch Tom & Jerry... ;\)

I agree with you when you say there is a time and place for everything. Even the indulgences (which may be a more appropriate word than sins, perhaps) that I least favor have their moments in which they are appreciated.

I'll go look at your introduction now, but a warm welcome to the board. I like your perspective and will look forward to seeing your responses in the future.

Yes it is a more appropriate word but for me: Naaaah... I kind of like to call it sinning openly and everywhere. Their reactions reminds me of who I am and let me seed out the goats from the sheep's.

However, would it not be even more correct to call it Indulging in sin?

Indeed.

I never thought about it that way. Good point.

Lust, sloth, gluttony, wrath and pride. Mostly. In fair doses.

They are, in order from best to least best (I love em all!):

Lust,
Gluttony,
Sloth,
Pride,
Envy,
Greed,
Wrath.

And, by the way, I think of them not as sins, but as "The Seven Ways to Make My Day More Interesting."

Mmmm lust...to just want and almost need it. Most times getting sexual and that in and of itself is a big part of society.

It sells many of the products we buy, it is in many ways the root of humanity. We are born thru it. If not the act itself, I enjoy lust.

I also scored High as Lustful (huge surprise).

My ranking on the "7 SIN'S"

Greed: Medium
Gluttony: Medium
Wrath: High
Sloth: High
Envy: Medium
Lust: Medium
Pride: High

I'm doomed to the Seventh Level of Hell which is:

"Guarded by the Minotaur, who snarls in fury, and encircled within the river Phlegethon, filled with boiling blood, is the Seventh Level of Hell. The violent, the assassins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment. The stench here is overpowering. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides- stunted and gnarled trees with twisting branches and poisoned fruit. At the time of final judgement, their bodies will hang from their branches. In those branches the Harpies, foul birdlike creatures with human faces, make their nests. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation, and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level."

COOL!

HAIL SATAN!

I'm not sure I have a favorite.
Not withstanding "the unbalanced force" of someone
looking under my rock, I usually keep to myself;
so wrath and envy are out.
When I go to the local Kroger to buy groceries, if
I see stupid people, I feel pride (because I'm not them--
this sometimes bleeds into a twisted/asinine sort of
gratitude). If I have to put up with stupid people in
traffic (assuming that I get temporarily caught in the
snares of "dream sharing") I might feel some anger.
Usually when I am hungry, or when I am physically tired,
these are the only things-- at that time-- that I think
about. So I would suppose the influence of a particular
deadly sin at any given time would be based upon Maslow's
Hierarchy of Needs, predicated by what "lower-rung" or more
basic needs have been met.
EX: If I can't get to sleep and I have to go to to work in the
morning, I'm probably not going to dwell on how Proud I am
to be a Vampire. Likewise, if I haven't eaten all day and a
cute woman bends over in front of me to pick up a quarter,
except for those two or three "in the moment" seconds, I'm
thinking about getting some lunch. (This position was somewhat
different 20 years ago ;\) ).

So I guess what I am trying to say is: If I have a day
when I'm headlining at the Hubris Bar and Grill, I'm in pretty
good shape-- my tummy's full, I'm not tired, I'm not distracted
by some unavailable woman, I don't feel like ripping the
head off of some wanker, and I'm not depressed because
someone has more money than me.

Final Analysis: Pride.

Pride for me is a "lower-maintenance" deadly sin.

Everything else requires constant feeding from me
especially anger and wrath. (LOL!)

Actually, (come to think of it) if I like the fact I don't
have to work at being prideful, then I guess Sloth would
be somewhere close by.

Major:Pride
Minor:Sloth

ELectives:Greed and Lust

I must agree with Magister Nemo that all are needed to balance eachother. That one must practice all of these sins to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thats why we have so many obese children these days, they take their Gluttony nad Sloth seriously but don't counter balance it with enough pride to get back into shape. HS!

Mmmm...all of them, given the right time and mood, and I can just feel the blood running through my veins, my heart pounding faster, and my breath becoming deeper...but the one I have the most fun with is Lust!

But, Shade, you could always go to Confession on Saturday and be sqeaky clean for mass on sunday. YOu'd just have to be careful between Wednesday and Saturday. (And have poor hearing while confessing to the pervert in the other half of the confeesional. It's rumoured that they have a good time while hearing folks tell on themselves.)

I enjoy the Hell out of all 7. Because as a Great Man wrote in 1969, "...all lead to either physical or emotional gratification..."
