3 Man’s Fatal Flaw Essay The Greeks believed that hubris was the worst flaw in mankind. Hubris was defined as a destructive kind of pride in which a person did not humble himself before the almighty power of the gods, but thought of himself as the most important being in the universe. Consider human flaws such as pride, rage, cowardice, greed, conceit, laziness, violence, disloyalty, excessive ambition, selfishness, rudeness, dishonest, ignorance, disrespectful, irresponsible, jealousy, merciless, vengeance, obsession, and others. Now write to convince me that your choice is the worst character flaw in mankind.

4 Introduction (Topic) Define “character flaw” Give example (Greek info from prompt) Choose flaw(s) and DEFINE it(them) Use example of your flaw(s) from history, literature, current events, etc. if needed to make the meaning clear. Explain the possible outcome or consequences, for example: This (These) flaw(s) can cost a person their success, their friends, and their family.

5 Every person has character flaws.

6 A character flaw is a defect in the way a person makes choices about following the rules of a civilized society.

7 The Greeks thought the worst flaw was “hubris”. A person with hubris thinks he knows better than the gods what is right and wrong. He makes his own rules.

8 I believe that man’s worst flaw is disloyalty. Disloyalty is turning away from someone when times are hard. Jason was disloyal to Medea. When the townspeople started calling her names, he abandoned her.

9 Disloyalty can cost a person friends, family, and success.
