What trait do you hate most in people?

For me, dishonesty. There is nothing more horrible than knowing you can't trust someone. Whether it is with a secret, or if they steal or are just a nasty person, I find dishonesty a horrible trait in any human being. What trait do YOU hate the most?

I would definitely have to agree with you about dishonesty. I do not like people that lie. It is very important to be able to trust people. Some people will tell little white lies and then there are people who lie all the time about everything. I think lying is bad and do not know why people think that they can get away with lying. The truth always comes out at some point.

I'm with you...I can't handle dishonest people even when they are only joking around about it. There are a lot of other traits I don't deal with but I think this is the one I hate the most. I feel if I can be honest to someone then I deserve their honesty in return.

Liars. I can't stand them. If they lie, they have broken the trust and then you can never trust what they say. I had this problem with my "ex" husband and that is why there is an EX in front of husband. LOL Ugh, they are the biggest turnoffs for me. I rather someone be somewhat rude to me but honest!

definitely agree with you on the subject of dishonesty.A lack of honesty will get me knowhere with relationships.fake people annoy the hell out of me too.just be true to yourself and others will like you for who you are, not who you are trying to emulate.

probably dishonesty, but insensitivity is pretty high up there too. it can really hurt if somebody is insensitive about something close to you.

Dishonesty ranks pretty high on my list. I think people who lie is probably the trait I dislike the most. I think that could easily be included in dishonesty too?

For me, it's negativity. People who give up before they even try, or decide that the result is going to be bad no matter what just annoy the crap out of me. People who don't feel good until they bring everyone around them down upset me. I try to be upbeat and look on the bright side and I realize that things might not always turn out the way I want them to, but I'm still willing to try. So I pretty much expect that from everyone around me. Also, laziness pisses me off. People who do their best to shirk responsibility and thrust those responsibilities onto others are just wrong. My last job, half of the people who worked there stood around and did nothing all day, and the few who cared about the job ended up having to pick up the slack and were never acknowledged for the extra work they put in to keep the place running smoothly. In some cases, the people standing around were making nearly twice as much money as the people doing the work, and it was really frustrating to go to work every day knowing that at least two shifts of work was waiting to be done because the previous shift couldn't be bothered to do anything.
