SELF-DEFEATING STATEMENTS "I think all extremists should be shot." "I hate all those people who make generalizations" "I used to be apathetic, but now I just don't care." "I used to be indecisive, but now I just don't know." "I've decided that I procrastinate too much, but I'm going to change that in a week or so." "The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up." "I used to be conceited, but now I'm perfect." "Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken." "I'd give my right arm to be ambidexterous." "Thank God for atheism." "I'm not conceited. Conceit is a fault and I have no faults." "I'm not arrogant, I'm just better than you." I'm not paranoid, but the people who are secretly plotting against me are.
