The 7 Sins and 7 Virtues - which are you most "guilty" of?

I’ve asked GT this question before, because it’s fun and new people are always arriving. :) In the words of Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, every one suspects himself of at least one of the cardinal virtues. What’s yours? And just because wicked is fun, which of the sins? (And a bonus question: what do you think the difference, if any, is between Pride and Vanity?)

To save the Googling, here are the two most popular lists of the 7 virtues, and the 7 sins (but we’ve all seen Se7en, right?) You can use any virtue from either of the lists, there’s considerable overlap.

Love, Hope, Faith, Prudence, Justice, Temperance, Fortitude

Charity, Chastity, Diligence, Humility, Kindness, Patience, Temperance

Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride

My Virtue: Diligence. I work hard and I get shit done.

My Sin: Envy. Whilst working hard and getting shit done, I sometimes side-eye other people, quietly seething about how much less work they seem to be doing for far greater reward. I’m one of those fucked-up people who occasionally disappear from Facebook for months because I just can’t handle how successful and happy and validated everyone is being.
