    -Flaws are typically acquired by repeating something negative many times. They change your characters attributes slightly and reward you with a free perk point.
    -Flaws are completely optional and can be rejected, and although this achievement is missable, by the end of the game you will likely have encountered more than 3 phobia prompts. Flaws MUST be accepted to count toward the achievement,
    -Flaws are limited to 3 on normal, 4 on hard, and 5 on supernova.
    -Phobias are flaws that give you -1 Perception, -1 Dexterity, and -1 Temperament when in the presence of the source of the Phobia. (Raptidons for raptiphobia, etc.)

    -Flaws appear to trigger on a cooldown, meaning, for example, Acrophobia cannot be acquired by repeated purposeful falls.

    Acrophobia - Taking too much fall damage.
    Cynophobia - Taking too much damage from canids.
    Paranoid - Being caught committing crimes too often.
    Robophobia - Taking too much damage from robots.
    Herpetophobia - Taking too much damage from mantisaurs.
    Raptiphobia - Taking too much damage from raptidons.
    Addiction Withdrawal - Too many consumed meds.
    Permanent Concussion - Taking too much damage to the head.
    (Damage Type) Weakness - Taking too much (Plasma, N-Ray, Fire, etc.) damage.
    Pithecophobia - Taking too damage from primals.
    Physical Damage Weakness - Taking too much physical damage.
    Permanently Crippled - Taking too much damage to the legs. (Crippled Status.)
    Partially Blind - Taking too much damage to your eyes. (Blinded status.)
    Permanently Maimed - Taking to much damage to the arms.

    -It is my personal opinion that Phobias are your best choice as to not inhibit the rest of your playthrough, as they have no adverse effects outside of combat.

    *If anyone has found more, please let me know and I will add them to the list.

    HighLandur @zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz there are a few you can probably just stand in one place and acquire, such as food, drug, and alcohol addiction.

    zDrUnKeNMoNkEyz So just sit there and eat everything I have? What would those 3 entail? Sorry, just don’t understand the cool down comment in solution .

    Vokul Vegan For those if you looking to get an easy flaw I acquired Shock Weakness on the satellite HRS-1084, which you go to in the mission "The Ice Palace" for SubLight after you complete "Space-Crime Continuum" for Lilya Hagen on the Groundbreaker. The way I got it was after turning on the power in the satellite there is a security checkpoint that has a shock floor. So I just kept walking onto it to damage myself and after about 2 minutes it popped up. This was my 5th flaw and wasn't sure if I'd ever get it to pop.
