The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. Dwight D. Eisenhower
"She is the last of her kind, she thought. No wars had ever touched her, and she had lived through three; nothing had disturbed that world of hers, where gentlemen smoked on the porch or in hammocks, where ladies fanned themselves gently and drank cool water." - Jean Louise Finch describing her aunt in 'Go Set a Watchman'
Don't like spiders at all. It's not so much that I can't deal with them. I'll kill them, no problem. But I don't like them. And its especially bad if it is a brown recluse or black widow. Last summer I needed to turn the water off to do some plumbing work and when I lifted the lid to the water main in the front yard, a huge black widow spider was staring me in the face, and sitting not 3 inches from my hand. I go in the house and get some spider poison spray and completely drench the entire area with it. And stomp on the dead spider to boot.
There are times that I can't deal with traumatic injuries, whether seeing them on tv or reading about them. For example, there was an article posted on the football board back before the NC game about the jet ski accident AJ McCarron was in when he was a kid. As I was reading through that article, I literally started feeling faint, and I had to stop reading it and go to the restroom to throw some cold water on my face.
I never understood the snake phobia.

Reading materials in health facility waiting rooms. Have you ever sat back and watched how folks turn the page after licking their finger? Pay attention....you will NEVER pick up a magazine in the doctor's office again.
