    I don't listen to people easily.

    Myself included. So here I am, sick, and suddenly I crave hot tea. But I know I don't like hot tea. I know that I'll make it (which is a lot of work for me), finally take a sip (after burning my tongue first), and then realize all over again how much I hate hot tea. But you know...

    I'd probably say my worst qualities is the fact

    that I am stubborn and hard headed and no one will ever tell me what to do. Whenever someone tells me whats right/what to do etc my natural instinct is to do or say the opposite. Thats just me and sometimes i feel i need to work on myself and sometimes i feel like i don't care...

    I do whatever I can not to lose.

    I don't care how much I suffer, but I can't lose. It goes too far sometimes.

    It Is A Family Condition. We Are ALL Stubborn.

    My dad has missed about 3 days of work in his life because unless he is physically incapable of moving, he is too stubborn to accept he is ill.My nan on my mum's side flatly refuses to die. By all rights she should have died about 3 times last year, the last time she even saw...

    I Don't Let No One Tell Me What To Do

    I hate it when people try to tell me what I should do. It's my life and I can do what I want. I don't listen to them. I am not so rude as to tell them to shut up, but I will pretent to listen and agree so they will shut up. They don't know it, but they are kinda pushing me...

    It's probably inherent.

    I really don't like that I am stubborn

    Who, Me?

      Persistent, I'd call myself.  Not that I would ever admit being stubborn, mind you. I might, though, spend a couple hours or more trying to convince you I wasn't.

    I have been told i am very stubborn.

    It's true though. When I really care about you I tend to be really stubborn about letting you do something if I feel like it isn't good for you. Although there are times I'll just not bother you about it but once it irks me and I get worried I will talk to you about it :)
