View Full Version : Oh, just give up already

February 2nd, 2013, 5:55 PM
Are you quick to give up on things?
No explanation necessary.

It depends on what I'm doing. Most of the time I'd rather just give up than ask for help, though. Which is completely stupid, I know.

Depends on what the thing is. If it's of no real importance, I'll give up if it doesn't work the first time.

If it matters, though, or if it's something I'm passionate about, I'll keep trying till it's at the point where I want it to be, or damn close enough.

Nope, I really don't like giving up. Unless I know I absolutely cannot do it and even then I might still keep trying.

If it's math, yes.

If it is:

minecraft buildings
anything to do with building

Then I never give up. :D

I can be pretty persistent when it come to most situations. If there's something I want or want to go somewhere, most of the time I will keeping asking and bothering people for a while before I give up.

Seriously what is with the maths hate V______V

It depends, sometimes I can be real stubborn and refuse to submit but other times I'm like ehhh yeah whatever I give up.

Yes, but I will try many, many times. If I can't do it in one go, then I don't have much interest in it.

Yes, I do give up on things after I loose interest in them. I have no staying power. I need a constant stream of new things to keep me interested. Well, that's me at my worst anyway. I do keep up with things when I realize the importance of them, like all this adult responsibility of having a job and stuff which I've been doing for much longer than I would have thought I could stand back when I was in middle or high school.

I never gave up on math. I took calculus twice. I failed the first time. :/

No, i have a hard time coping if i set out to do a task and find its too difficult. However, i wont give up, even if it means doing extra, asking for help, or just trying my best.

I'm very persistent so I'll keep trying and trying until I get bored of it or until it looks like I have no chance of accomplishing it.

I try to not give up because it feels better when you accomplish something knowing you could have just given up.

depends on how much i want that thing

If it's something small, especially when it comes to writing or video games. Man it wasn't that important anyway right? ;)

On the bigger things in life, I'd like to think I don't give up easily. But I'm lazy so I probably do. :(

I give up on something if I feel it's gonna be more effort than what it's worth. I don't think it's weak, it's just being realistic. I don't care about "finishing what you started" because to some things there's just no point. I used to have a hard time letting go and moving on but I'm pretty much the opposite now. It's really liberating to be able to forget about something and not care anymore lol.

I'm quick to give up on maths problems but not so quick to give up trying to catch that Feebas I so desperably need.

I can give up on things that I can't afford to keep thinking or caring about. It can be very hard though. I can't say that I am not a persistent person because I'm as indecisive as...an indecisive person.

If I were giving up on substances I would imagine it would be quite difficult.

It depends.

If I set my heart on doing something then I would sooner black out from exaustion then decide that I can't do it.

However, if i'm not so interested in it then i'll try a few times and give up.

Giving up is a word that doesn't exist in my dictionary. I will always try my level best to complete whatever that is thrown my way, no matter the difficulty. I might ask for help along the way, but I will always press on. There have been times where I have felt like giving up, but that is only normal for a human. If I am not particularly interested in what I'm doing, I will try and try again until I come close to what I feel is my best effort. I do put some things off after trying, so I might have given up a few times, but that's probably because I'm lazy lol.

I would consider myself persistent to a fault, actually.

I get really enthusiastic about huge tedious projects then lose interest half way through and forget they ever existed lol.

Nah, I am a last-second worker but I don't give up most of the time xD

Perhaps my biggest flaw is being a quitter. I give up on a lot of things, which is why I usually take a lot of pride in things that I commit to, even if it's something small like a Pokemon game I haven't restarted in several years or a really nice drawing or story.

Unfortunately, quitting is a habit I've started to do as far as school and working goes ahaha... I really need to quit quitting.

I'd say I'm pretty persistent when it comes to most things. I really don't like to give up on things, I try my best to see things all the way through.
