Well, telling on myself here: I suffer greatly from envy. I am trying to hard not to be a jealous person. I grew up one of four kids and only one of the four was a favored child (I wasn't it). The rest of us tended to fight for attention and resources to no avail. So I grew up with a mindset of competition and when one person gets something, I get less of something. It's still a struggle to be happy for others when they are doing better than me.

One of my cousins has so much family support that she has been able to chase a creative dream that I had. She sucked at it at first. But she still had success despite what I thought to be waay less talent than myself. Every time my husband mentions a new project she's succeeding at, I say "I am very happy for her. She is proof that family support means everything. I will support my daughter as much as her mother has supported her." And I have to say all of that to not feel the envy.

It's a terrible emotion to feel and it really hurts me and holds me back from love and life.

Lust is the intense desire for something (though it's often used as a desire for sex because people are enamored with it) immaterial and everything I want is immaterial (autonomy and the strength to ensure it is a recurring desire), so I'd go with that. It's kind of my default to want things, so no iconic moment.

Sloth: I don't like expending effort. I hate the idea of an afterlife since I prefer to think of death as the ultimate form of rest.

Pride: Long story short, yes.

Wrath: Are you even an anarchist if you're not mad?

Greed: An obsession with gaining and hoarding more material possessions; I see it as a prison and a weakness.

Gluttony: Excessive consumption and wastefulness is a big part of why I hate America, so not a fan of this one.

Envy: I'm incompatible with this one since I treat everything as already being my property.

Greed to no one's surprise.

Tho gluttony is a close second.

And of course I really like sloth, pride and envy but not nearly as much.
