Bluntschli, a Swiss professional soldier in George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man, states that his incurably romantic disposition has spoiled his chances in life. Bluntschli, unlike most soldiers, is not interested in war and romanticizes about love and relationships instead. He believes that his romantic disposition has prevented him from achieving his goals and success in life. Bluntschli is portrayed as a practical, resourceful and competent soldier who has managed to stay alive in several battles due to his quick-thinking and knowledge of tactics. However, his romanticism often leads him to act in ways that are not practical, such as falling in love with Raina, the daughter of a wealthy family, which could jeopardize his mission. Therefore, Bluntschli's incurably romantic disposition is what he believes has spoiled his chances in life.
