    Strike the envy from that list, and make sure that 'wrath' is only directable to other people, and THAT is the perfect women.
    And intelligence and beauty/charisma

    Well of course. I added Envy because I just felt that there needed to be a third, and Envy is a very common emotion between women... they won't show it but they sure as hell feel it.

    I've never felt it... o.o Maybe it gets displaced, though.

    Bah, you should take pride in what you can do, and your acomplishments. Though, you should not let these effect how you treat others.

    Pride is a sin because most people are weak, and based on how they feel about themselves, they modify their attitude towards others. This was understood even in ancient 'uneducated' times. *rollseyes*

    And hey, being lazy is ok as long as you do the things that need to be done.
    Actually, I think that pride is one of the worse sins that you can commit. Pride is thinking you are perfect or close to perfect in a certain area, when in fact you are a flawed and imperfect individual. Pride is the worst kind of conceit, in my opinion. After all, if you believe in the Bible, the devil was second only to God when he fell from the sin of pride at his own greatness. There is a very big difference from the phrase, "taking pride in something," which is just a sense of accomplishment for a job well done, and actually taking real pride in something, which is putting greater worth in something than it is due, kind of like making an idol out of it if you take it to its logical conclusion.
    Edit:
    P.S. - I don't think that it is weak individuals that are susceptible to pride, everyone is, but especially the more learned or athletic people. After all, isn't someone who says that only "weak" people have the "bad" kind of pride a form of pride itself, where you are taking pride in your moral fibre and ability to not succumb to the dark side of pride?

    Or not, pride isn't really bad as long as it doesn't affect how you act towards other people.

    Nothing is bad as long as it doesn't effect how you act towards people. If I am lustful, but don't show that I want another person's girlfriend, then no harm done, no sin commited. The same goes for every other sin, so you can't really judge that way.

    ...You better not MEAN that... o.o... on the other hand, blackmail... XD

    But it IS sinful. The fact that you have the thought and desire is in itself a sin - according to the Ten Commandments of various religions, anyway. Seeing as my religious views tend to be outside that of any organized religion, I can't say for myself - but according to some religions, that is a sin. You think it, therefore it exists.

    But the problem with pride is that it is a double edged sword, trying to stop being prideful can cause you to take pride in your own pious actions. And you also mistake what I am saying. Pride is an internal thing, not an external thing. If you allow yourself to think something along those lines and judge someone, even if you have not outwardly shown it, you have still done that sin. The same goes with lust, if you objectify someone or something, even if you don't act on it, you still comitted that sin in your mind and in your heart.

    P.S.- I am too slow of a typer.

    Edit:
    P.P.S. - You know, there is a very good book that deals with all of the cardinal sins, and even explains gluttony and puts it in a new light that I had never before realized, the want of perfection is also an aspect of gluttony, and too often we only see it as overindulgence in food. That book is called the Screwtape Letters, written by C.S. Lewis, and is a very short book that I suggest everyone should read, it is a real eye-opener.
