Wouldn't that be like how some people are "too trusting" or "too nice"? It's a flaw because you are an easy target but it also makes the person really likable usually.

Seems like an oxymoron since flaws are typically bad, but I wouldn't doubt that flaws can be advantageous sometimes.

I guess being imperfect is a good flaw because it's what humanizes us and gives us the opportunity to work much harder to be the best we can be, otherwise there would be no excitement to existing.

Umm, no? That's pretty much why they are called flaws.

Of course, they can have a silver lining. There can be good things that come along with flaws, but that doesn't make the flaw itself inherently good.

I mean, good enough, yeah. But I don't think it makes a flaw itself good.

Like, imagine being in a concentration camp during World War II. You meet your future spouse there and survive, going on to live the rest of your days unbelievably happy for that development in your life. They mean the world to you. That doesn't make what happened during World War II a good thing. It doesn't justify the murder of millions upon millions of people. But hey, something good here or there may have come out of that rubble in spite of it.

I'm just saying that not everything is black and white. We live in a world of grays.

^Point.

What one culture might deem as attractive and desirable, another culture may not. In this regard, flaws are subjective and can be regarded as flaws by some and not by others.
