Is there a such thing as "good" flaws?

In Japan, crooked teeth are considered endearing on women. There are cosmetic surgeries which intentionally distort teeth for this reason.

All flaws are good for a human to have.
It ensures that a single human cannot do everything by him/herself,
and that co-dependence is required,
no matter how much one might despise it.
This, plus the fact that what one doesn't another does,
is why humans reproduce bisexually.

Whether the flaws themselves are good, though,
that is another question.

I have a flaw that makes me unable to keep a grudge on someone... I guess that's a good flaw for other people but not me...

Well, not everyone has the same tastes, so something may appear as a flaw to one person, it'll be a charm point to another.

I think flaws against a social concept of perfection that I didn't vote for can be awesome. From my own subjective point of view, of course. I don't acknowledge an objective standard for internal or external beauty.

And I think that this is not just true for people, but also any sort of artistic pursuit.

I agree.

Oh yes, but it depends on the situation. You have to know when to use them, and when not to.

And besides, what may seem as a flaw to one may be seen as an endearing, positive trait to another. It is all in our perception.

Yup. I am always honest on my exam and do not cheat yet my classmates get very high grades by cheating.
Being honest is my good flaw.

There's a quote that says "We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."

You can come to admire people by their imperfections like I do with my mom. I think my mom's biggest flaw is that she is TOO nice and forgives TOO quickly, it makes me mad sometimes but at the same time, I admire her for being that way because I can't be the same

My biggest flaw is my voice and I have yet to find people who like it I don't speak loud and in school the teacher would always yell at me "speak louder!!!!" and I couldn't!!! I always felt like I was yelling and my throat hurt but it's still not enough or so it seemed.

I like that quote.

Aside from that, I'm a bit similar to your mother far as being too nice most likely due to being a people pleaser. I also get uncomfortable when someone yells at me too.

Yeah. Good flaws count. There no need for us to be perfect. Just doing our best to become more brighter, and stronger.

A person's flaws and idiosyncrasies are what give them character. Just as a flawless character is boring, so is a flawless person. In that regard, all flaws are good because they enrich human interaction, and give people goals to overcome. Most of the "meaning" people glean from their lives is related to their flaws. Fiction mirrors reality, and fiction is all about personal growth: that's because that concept is a key part of our experience as humans. Having no flaws is tantamount to having "finished" your life, and having no more reason to exist.
