Here's a vice: I say yes to too many things. I wish I had the guilty pleasure of saying no. My goal is to try to do less, but more fully. – Sigourney Weaver
Since writing about 14 Interesting Facts About Myself, and asking several of my students I teach the question of what their guilty pleasures are, most of them don't understand this question, and even after explaining it, the answers can be pretty amusing.

5. SEEKING SOLITUDE
I know that there are several people that have monophobia (fear of being alone) and this is one thing that creative people do.
