comment Meaning of 共同志向性
All the answers indicate that this is a positive trait. Are we sure this isn't a negative trait like 付和雷同...? Like "I intend to cooperate because I can't take the lead by myself" or something?

comment When to use 欲しがる instead of 欲しい
This is what I had always learned about the 1st/3rd person usage as well. I was about to post this as a comment until I found the following example in the OSX dictionary under ほしい: 「彼は金も名誉も欲しくなかった|He had no desire for fame or fortune.」

comment What does 氏 mean after a name, how is it different from さん or 様?
I'm not sure if I agree with closing this. This question borders a fine line between a simple definition and uncertainty of usage.

comment The phrase 乞うご期待
乞う means "to request", so it would be "the expectation/anticipation of what you asked for".

comment I've seen 達人and 名人used to indicate master or expert. What's the difference?
師匠 【ししょう】 and 名匠 【めいしょう】 are a couple more good words for master/expert.

comment “You don't have to be so polite.” Really?
Note that formality and politeness are not the same thing, although they often go together. Formality is the formation of your words (using です/〜ます forms vs. plain forms) and politeness is the content of what you're saying. Also, you might want to reformat the post, because I'm not really sure what you're asking. If other people don't either, it might get closed.

comment Kanji 行 with なみ, なめ, みち and アン pronunciations
Just to note, 行方 = ゆくえ (someone's "whereabouts") as well, and is far more common. Just don't want the OP (@Lukman) to get used to mentally reading it as the above 地名.
