Is there a such thing as "good" flaws?

Flaws are neither good nor bad really they are characteristics of a person which we would consider generally negative but to term them good or bad I believe misunderstands them because you as a person can either let your flaws dictate your actions or beliefs or you can learn to work around them or utilize them to your advantage. Once you are aware of a tendency (a flaw) you are then able to either change it, control it, or account for it.

It's fine to have imperfections or to fail that is just apart of living. What's wrong is to let imperfections define you or to obsess over them uselessly. If a flaw truly bothers you then change yourself through effort. If you can't change it, learn to accept it. It;s okay to not be perfect

That's good to know.

I suppose it depends on what you mean by "good" and "flaw". I know that seems silly but as someone pointed out earlier flaws generally speaking are imperfections or faults with something, so generally speaking no there isn't any inherently good flaws. If you meant however, that it provides a source of happiness or allows people to do certain things better than they would otherwise then yes that's possible. For example, people with savant syndrome. They generally are capable of being excellent in one thing, but aren't capable of living a full life. It has a bright side but it is still a flaw. The thing with people is there is no such thing as an inherent fault in humans because there is no objective way to rate people. I mean sure people can have less desirable traits such as being an asshole, but besides genetic defects those are just less desirable and not decidedly a flaw in the person. So overall yes flaws could have be not all bad, and I'm sure in some cases its possible that the flawed version of something might be more enjoyed, but a flaw is what is is and shouldn't generally be applied to people's traits physical or mental.
