in reply to I need more...

I'd like to say that I need more laziness, since that would imply that I'm hard-working and efficient. This is not the case. I'm plenty lazy, and if there's an existing solution to my problem then I'm using that.

I could probably use more impatience, though, both in the Perlish sense and in the real-life sense. If it takes someone an hour to get my meal to me in a restaurant, then I'll just sit and do other stuff for that hour. I don't believe anyone should ever be in that much of a hurry unless they're on the way to the emergency room.

Hubris? I've got more than my share of that.

Polls! Now here's one we could all use more of. I like knowing what people think about things, and polls are a good way of seeing how my opinions compare to other people's opinions. For some reason I don't understand, my vote usually lands in the one that's 10-11%. But in this case, however it stacks up, my vote is for polls.

    Non sequitur. You appear to be confusing sloth and laziness. Hard-working efficiency complements laziness, as it implies getting the necessary work done with minimal effort and time. "Sloth" is simply slacking off or avoiding necessary work.

      Drifting way the heck off-topic, but: I asked my girlfriend if she wanted to live in sin. She didn't, until I qualified it. "What if we restrict it to sloth and gluttony?" She was all over that like a trophy wife on a pool boy.
