As humans, what is our biggest weakness?
The answer shouldn't be personal, like "I don't have very good hand-eye coordination" - I'm talking about us as a species...fear? anger? What do you think??
As humans, our biggest weakness is greed, i.e. the inability to stop when we have enough.
Selfishness. So many people only think of how to improve their own situations, and don't reach out to help others even when they have the power to do so. I wish we could rise above the "survival of the fittest" mentality.
Our biggest weakness is money. People do everything for money nowadays. We are also depending on money, think about the financial crisis and war.
Many humans have just one flaw ; they have no self control. So, I would say this is our biggest weakness but also a great source of soulsearching, humiliation and comedy.
Are biggest flaw is fear! it can make one man the most important person in the world and everyone else are pupputs who play silly games for thier masters
Our biggest flaw is not that we cannot run fast or jump high or lift much or grow quickly or live more than a few days without food or water. Our biggest flaw is our intelligence--that which has enabled us to eradicate species, destroy cultures, hate, kill, ignore. That which makes us boisterous, arrogant, dependent upon civilization, and that which makes us think we actually know about life.
The worst weakness humans have is THE PASSION OF THE HEART. It makes us do things which are irrational. It always gets us in trouble one way or another. It turns people into self-induced victims. There are plenty examples of this in the forums.
People have a tendency to use their own passions to hurt themselves and BLAME OTHERS for their actions resulting from their fragile state of mind. This passion can turn into good things at times, but is often detrimental to the human condition.
Our biggest flow is Gullibility. 99% of us including myself are too easily led. We don't take the time to process and interpret information then make vise decisions as to our direction and what is right for us as an individual. Risk offers great reward and faith offers comfort but wisdom promotes clarity.
divinization of beauty (both physical and spiritual) particularly in women and nature. this is truly my weakness (in a good sense of course). i could die looking for a beautiful woman the other side of the street and sometimes i risk my life to look them just walking. love the way they walk.
Our biggest weakness is that we are satisfied by substitutes and need more and more of it because these doesn't satisfy us really. We are dependent on them and are not capable to look through the manipulation games others are playing with us just for their purposes.
I think the biggest human weakness is the inability to think independently. Too many people automatically accept opinions of self-proclaimed experts, or don't question things.
Self interest. Our innate greed and selfishness stimulated our rise to the top of the food chain, but our inability to curtail that in any meaningful way will probably see our species perish at some point.
Without a doubt, are biggest weakness is are tendency to think in a short-sighted manner. It is this weakness that allows us to do things such as deplete and pollute the world's resources , contribute to global warming, drop an atomic bomb, and participate in day to day reckless behavior without thinking much about the world 30 years from now.
Jealousy rather Envy, It can lead to many disaster. The worst thing is, most people don't know that they have that Illness in their heart called Envy. Lack of Money is not a weakness for me. Probably the reason why you have no money can be also a weakness to that person, for example being stubborn can cause you your business.
I call it Angel's heart- those people who have peaceful existence, no jealousy, no Envy.
( I have to steal the answer from Carlos Castenada, via his "character" don Juan)...the biggest weakness is to believe that we are immortal.
For me (as just another human) to live today as if there will be another chance to get it right, to 'take it over' to practice if it does not come out right...to not give my all to every moment...that is: acting as if I am immortal
(second biggest weakness: stealing from otherss...lol)
When we, for its ease, try being godlike ... thus, being, Un- human.
''DOUBT'' state in which the mind remains suspended between two contradictory propositions and unable to assent to either of them !

Why do most people see "Faith" as a point of weakness?Fear being, lack of faith and faith being lack of fear. To me, to have faith takes great courage.
