I think that we can sum up Willy's tragic flaw in a word or two. He is in denial and at his worst points "delusional." His American Dream was the stuff of fantasy. Willy denies everything he is good at (woodworking, carpentry, construction...) and opts for getting rich quickly. His talents for sales and the marketplace are mediocre at best. Quick money and success defines Willy so when he fails at them, he fails at everything else.

yep... I agree with u.
