Might as well give this a try too.

Profession: Student

Strength: 9 - slightly above average I'd say. Although i seem to underestimate my strength regularly, so it might be a 10.
Dexterity: 7 - Whole body not so much, considering that I'm quite...uh..round? I can do relatively fine work with my fingers though.
Intelligence: 11 - Don't call me a Nerd... :<
Perception: 8 - Probably around average.

Fast Healer - runs in the family. My father and I recover pretty fast from wounds.
Fast Reader - I love books.
Light Step - I can move around very quietly, if I want to. To an extend that people don't even realize that I moved through the room. Sounds weird, considering my...sturdy build.
Strong Stomach - Nothing to add to that, really.

Bad Temper - runs in the family, again. It's easy to make me angry, and I can stay angry for quite a while.
Disorganized - Where did I put...welp.
Far Sighted - I need glasses, mhm.
Heavy Sleeper - I'm still not sure why this is a negative trait. I can sleep through a lotta noise, that's a plus in my book :P
Languorous - Strong, but not a whole lotta Stamina.
Slow Footed - I'm not really fast...


Skills
Bartering 2
Computers 3
Cooking 2
Cutting Weapons 1
Driving 6

All in all...The Languorous / Slow Footed combo could be a big problem in the Cataclysm, but I feel like I could survive, as long as I stay cautious - and find a car :P

P:

Yea man.  I can see that as being correct.  Maybe were overestimating the skills, but those are certainly the strongest game-translatable skills I have.

Lets see ...

I am def insomniac and pessimist.
I am never sick and dont catch allergies.
I am clumsy and I have to force myself to move with grace.  Or practice.
I have great genes.  At least compared to my kin.
Bad knee is football knee.
Im near-sighted.
I was on a few occasions, described as 'scary until I talked, then a cracker ass'.
Deft is true enough.
High Thirst is more about how I am gluttonous and lack moderation in oral endeavors.  Lol.

Yea.  And I am fairly medically competent and fab/speaking is about right.

Profession: Pilot

Stats

Str: 8
Dex: 10
Int: 8
Per: 11

Traits

Negative:
Forgetful
Heavy Sleeper
Hates Fruit
Insomniac
Poor Hearing
Squeamish
Truth Teller
Weak Stomach

Positive:
Animal Empathy
Fast Reader
Less Sleep
Light Step
Masochist (I'm never gonna hear the end of it on this one)
Night Vision
Pain Resistance
Scout

Skills (rest are 0)
Cooking: -10 (my cooking is absolutely lethal)
Computers: 2
First Aid: 3
Mechanics: 2 (fixed-wing aircraft only, I'm completely car illiterate)
Driving: 4
Marksman: 3 (I'm not military, entirely incidental, best friend is a gun hoarder who's favorite hangout is the rifle range)
Handguns: 2
Shotguns: 2
SMG: 1
Rifle: 3



That's about all there is to it. Doubt I would survive the Cataclysm. On a side note, I've seen this topic come up countless times on the forums of other major RPG's and it never fails to amaze me that 99% of people seem to think they have an "above average" INT score. Its almost like a "dick size" stat. People are willing to admit all of their physical and emotional weaknesses, but the idea that they're not actually that much smarter than other people is completely unpalatable to most. 

Don't take this personally. It's just something I've observed in literally every "Stat Yourself" topic that I've ever participated in.

Serious respect to Mad Jackal and KliPeH for being real about it.
