Gluttony.
Some people eat to live. I live to eat.

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... ;\)

Curiosity; it's a form of greed.

A greed for knowledge... I would agree with you and state that curiosity is a kind of gluttony as well.

Thank you! \:\)

Compliments please me greatly, so if you ever wonder if you should or shouldn't (I know I sometimes feel awkward if I do it too frequently)... no matter what it's about, do. ;\)

I like sloth, but in healthy dosages and at the right time. And Tom and Jerry is good for the brain, compared to the trash kids watch nowadays!

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.
