Of course. The key to the vices is understanding when it’s being activated as a vice versus when it’s being utilized as a virtue. Let’s take Obsessed, which is one of the 7 traits. Some people make the mistake of letting that trait consume them. For example, they may over iterate on a project and not actually make a difference. Sometimes being obsessed can lead to paralyzation - in other words, you just obsess over the details but don’t improve anything for the better. You frustrate teammates and probably yourself too. On the flip side, being Obsessed can make you highly specialized and known for taking things from ordinary to extraordinary. You may be known for your obsessive nature as a super power. It shows up in everything you do in a positive way. Think of this balance like cooking - you can over season a dish or get the perfect blend of flavors. People who don’t know how to use their vice just can’t help but throw every spice they’ve got. :) I’d encourage you to buy our book Rare Breed, A Guide to Success for the Defiant, Dangerous and Different — it discusses your question at great length. http://amzn.to/2Lb6FHV
