My answers reveal a more boring mind I think.

Favorite Perl Instruction sub I love closures
Least Favorite Instruction reset Have you read the description of reset?
Favorite Looping Mechanism foreach Why allow mistakes to be made?
Least Favorite Looping Mechanism map If you won't use the return, why be confusing and obfuscate?
Favorite Module Exporter Narrowly beat Carp
Least Favorite Module Number::Format The bugs in it taught me things I didn't want to know about Perl.
Favorite Special Variable $! Need I explain?
Least Favorite Special Variable $` and $' Did I want the performance hit?
Favorite variable type Anonymous hash Very flexible
Favorite Command Line Switch -c Catch any typos in my incomplete edit
Least Favorite Command Line Switch -u Is it worth the pain of getting this to work?
Favorite Pragma strict Catch my typos please
Favorite Regexp Modifier g Particularly in scalar context
Favorite Regexp Metachar \w
Favorite Descriptive Variable Name $_ Only when it makes sense though
Favorite HERE Doc Delimiter EOT End Of Text
Favorite Filehandle my $fh = do {local *FH}; What do you mean you didn't know that worked?
