What's your favorite deadly sin?

I’ve come to the opinion the the seven deadly sins are all damn fine qualities, at least in moderation, and any healthy adult should at times be a bit greedy, or slothful, or proud, or you get my drift. So here’s the poll. Which is your favorite? Here’s mine.

1 Sloth
2 Lust
3 Gluttony
4 Wrath
5 Pride
6 Envy
7 Greed

I guess that just shows I’m rather non-materialistic, but quite hedonistic, however I’m too damn lazy to really get myself into much trouble. But enough about me. Tell me about you.

I’m not sure I see how gluttony can ever be good, since if you do it in moderation, it’s not really gluttony anymore. Envy doesn’t seem like it’s ever good either, unless maybe as a motivator. Hmm… most of those seem to be pretty bad. Sloth? Isn’t that, by definition, excessive laziness? Lust can be good I suppose. Okay, I’ll go with lust.

Lust is definitely the most fun.

I enjoy wrath probably more than most people.

Sometimes, I really want to smash stuff.

In order. . .

1: Lust
2: Wrath
3: Sloth (but no lusting after sloths)
4: Gluttony
5: Pride
6: Envy
Se7en: Greed

I don’t partake in the last 2 at all, really.

Trunk mad! Trunk smash! Trunk SMITE!


Lust is okay, but tiring. I go for sloth.

After 20 seconds of soul-searching, I’m pretty sure my list goes:

  1. Sloth
  2. Lust
  3. Greed
  4. Envy
  5. Pride
  6. Gluttony
  7. Wrath

Although after the first two, the rest drop way down in frequency. Probably due to #1.

Gluttony tops my list. I live to eat. There are certain foods, like pizza, I am like a dog with. I can eat pizza til I barf, then go back for more. Yeah. Gluttony is number one, followed by sloth. I’m pretty sure gluttony brings out the sloth.

FOr me, it’s clearly:

  1. Sloth
  2. Lust
  3. Gluttony
  4. Greed
  5. Envy
  6. Wrath
  7. Pride

Numbers 5 and 7 are waaaaaay down the list, really. I almsot never have any pride, and rarely get “wrath” level upset. But boy oh man am I lazy, and I do love a good romp in the hay! :smiley:

I have to profess the vices of sloth and lust. I’m probably worse about sloth.

I lean toward lust as my favorite. Two through seven are:

  1. Sloth
  2. Gluttony
  3. Pride
  4. Greed
  5. Envy
  6. Wrath

Ok, if you came to my house and drank my last beer, that might up the wrath a few notches. After all, drinking my last beer would be a most egregious offense, right? :smiley:

Oh they all look so tempting.

Lust is the only one I really like though. It leads to trouble, but the payoff seems a lot better than for the other ones.

Wrath is not too bad. I like to get angry. I get angry a little bit every day. I’m not sure why I like it. I would like to stop but I’m never sure what else to do. I’m working on it. When I don’t get angry, I feel helpless and passive, but when I get angry, it’s only an illusion that I’m controlling any outcomes. A lot of times, I feel like I’m really making someone pay and later I find out they didn’t even notice. :frowning:

Gluttony is my least favourite. It causes problems from the get go and the payoff isn’t much. Greed, Pride and Envy suck a lot since I don’t even know what the payoff is, but they aren’t that big of a problem for me since lust and anger occupy so much of my emotional energy. Sloth is like an instant punishment for me. I get depressed or anxious if I sit around or procrastinate so I don’t even enjoy it.

I’ve been really into the sloth lately. I 'd have to go with sloth. Greed isn’t so bad either. And lust when I’m not slothing.

Sloth is definitely my favorite. The others require, you know, effort.

Lust and wrath are definitely my top two.

I’m a sloth girl. Followed closely by gluttony.

Sitting around all day eating lemon pie is just about my perfect day. :slight_smile:

  1. Lust
  2. er…Lust
  3. hmmm…Lust

you get the picture.

It occupies so much of my mind…now back to my originally scheduled thoughts

What were the others?

I’m a simple guy, feed me, do me and I’m all yours.

Sloth, baby.

Lust, wrath and greed are also personal favorites, but there ain’t nothing like a good day full of sloth.

I’d have to say Sloth and Lust are running neck and neck, several lengths ahead of Envy, while Gluttony, Wrath, Pride, and Greed never even got out of the gate.
