Which of the seven deadly sins affect you the most and the least?


The Seven Deadly Sins(plus definitions for clarification):

Lust: very strong sexual desire.
Gluttony: habitual greed or excess in eating.
Greed: intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.
Sloth: reluctance to work or make an effort; laziness.
Wrath: extreme anger.
Envy: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.
Pride: a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

The one that affects me the most is wrath. The counter to wrath is patience which I severely lack in some cases.
The one that affects me the least is pride. The funny thing is, is that I haven’t achieved such a “great achievement.” Which is why I feel it sometimes nonexistent in my life, but it’s probably there and I just don’t notice it.

I was always interested in these sins, just the concept of them. After a lot of thought I realized that you cannot exterminate a sin from your life. You can only reduce or increase the influence of them. However, they will always be there, because we’re human beings.

I'm not sure how aware you are of Fullmetal Alchemist, but there are characters named after the seven deadly sins. They're homunculi and each have the same symbol on different parts of their body. I've always felt the envy is my "sin." I'm always envious and jealous of what other people have that I want. When I was 18 I started saving up money to get a tattoo of that symbol where the character Envy has it to sort of remind myself of how envious I have been and try to become better. Pretty lame, but I like it. Haha. I'm still very envious, but not nearly as much as I used to be.
Yeah I was first introduced to the seven deadly sins by Fullmetal Alchemist. After seeing the anime, I got really curious about the whole concept of them. Which one affects you the least Marisa? While researching the sins, I found out that there are also counters to the sins called, "The Seven Heavenly Virtues." Here's a link if you're interested: http://freedomoffaith.tripod.com/id11.html
I m not sure but my greatest should be either sloth or envy, though I get horny a lot of times but I don't think I m out of control so lust is not the issue. My least one should be gluttony.
All of the Seven Deadly Sins are just iterations of the same behavior: selfishness.

As an atheist, I do not believe in sin, and as a Humanist, I cannot call any of the 7DS wrong. Barring psychological dysfunction such as an addictive personality, when a person's needs are met, they tend not to use things to excess.
