Ailime,

MY only nitpicks are the word "they" is not necessary and you need a comma after two-faced.

I had to read the post twice before catching these very minor improvements.

Hi guys!

Agreeing with Flávia said, I have to show you up two worst defects a person can have: Indifference, and Selfishness. I think people who don't care about others deserve the worst things in the world. Being selfish and indifferent will never take us to anywhere!
Indifference, tottaly.. i mean, everybody have your rights.. your thoughts.. if we lived in agreement with all [i mean: respect each other, like brothers..] the world would be better..

Logan,

If you do not mind, I will offer a few suggestions in the form of this rewrite. "I agree with Flavia , the two worst defects a person can have are: indifference, and selfishness. I think people who don't care about others deserve the worst things in the world. Being selfish and indifferent will never get us anywhere."

If you will, try to determine why I made the changes, and let me know if you understand or if you need an explaination.

Renato,

I think I understand what you were trying to say, so I will write it for you and you can let me know if I am correct.
Also please see if you can determine why I made the changes, and let me know.

"Indifference is absolutely the worse defect. I realize that everyone has rights to their individual thoughts and beliefs, but if we would all live in harmony, respecting and treating each other as brothers, the world would be a better place."

Good Morning Bill,

Even in a short post, you can always find something wrong.
Thank you!!

In my opinion, the worst defect a person can have is dishonesty.

I believe that has not just one, said that much up there. I think terrible lies, dishonesty, laziness, irresponsibility. I believe it depends on the degree of these defects and how this influences the other and himself.
I guess is to be a liar. Even more a bad liar, cause the person thinks she's making fool of you, but they are the ones on the history!
Oh, and also a betrayer.

Hello Laura. Unlike Portuguese, in English you cannot or perhaps should not use a feminine personal pronoun after the word person. You might have thought of writing, "he or she" after the word "person."

On the topic. I have greatly improved on how I should treat my neighbors. Now I greet them and hold the elevator door open for them. I also had the powerful triple air horn removed from my car leaving the car's normal single horn in place. I also have sought more peaceful ways of dealing with people since then. With a smile. My strongest weapon.
