What Do You Dislike Most In A Person?

July 24, 2009 9:00am CST
As for me I hate arrogance and ignorance. Don't try to be someone who you aren't and don't speak of what you do not know. People who tend to go against this guideline of mine, I hate them instantly and if anyone I know does such an act, I will quickly let him/her know how I feel, thats for sure. What about you?

Hi, The moment I saw your topic, the first word that flashed to my mind is ARROGANCE and NEGATIVITY. Arrogance is the thing which I hate to the core in a person. I would like one to be polite with every other person and not speak with tantrums and hate. It is a tendency with many people to start a conversation with arrogance when they are introduced. That shows their dominating attitude which definitely hurts everybody around. On the contrary, there are people who talk so polite and yet cruel inside. They have a gameplan and work accordingly to demoralise the other.

And not to talk of negativity. I have been with people who always think negative and try to establish their dominance. They are jealous of others' success and talk with a negative approach and demoralise the opposite person. How I wish that these two qualities dissappear from everybody, very soon!!

Yeah you could say my parents are like that, its just down to how some people have grown up through their lifetime and been treated when they were young by thier own parents and later on apply the same tactics to their own kids. Since little I have always been frowned upon and everything that i do always turns out to be negative but i was not long ago i began to study psychology in college and eventually understood the effects of negativity and since then I have told off my parents and let them know how i feel. Conditions have improved a bit especially the way they respond to my little brother and sister which at least is a good thing but as for me I will always have that tendency of relating to negativity from time to time unfortunately. Its like a habit you could say after a certain time.

Hey, I am so sorry about it. You were a victim of such abuse. It is really bad. However, I sometimes do that unknowingly at others, especially people just around me. I hate when I do that. Hope things change for the better, as you had decided to. Let simplicity prevail. By the by, how do you feel, you can tackle Negativity? I need to help a few people around me come out of this. Do you suggest any medical help for this? You can PM me too, if we are drifting away. Thanks and take care.

hi i don't like people who boast, show off and lie, i too don't like arrogant people who think they are better than others, i have seen people like that, they think others are not equivalent to what they are just because they don't do things in arrogant ways, they look down upon some people and think they are inferior just because they are silent, i don't like those people, i am a silent person and mostly calm natured but i get really vicious when someone makes me very angry, and such people sometimes makes things worse, i am shy but i can be very mean to people who do wrong with me taking any form of advantage from me... sorry for taking my anger out here, lol... seems i want to say that...
25 Jul 09
You know what you are just like me, I thought you were describing me at a certain point lmao! Yeah its true, when you know someone has done something wrong to you, its just a boiling type of emotion you feel and you just want to pounce on that person and let him know exactly what he deserves in return lol.

i hate people who are CONCEITED and LIAR.. CONCEITED- its ok boast as long as you have something to be proud of, if you have none, then, you should shut your mouth and sit down in the corner..haha LIAR- if you don't want others know it, then don't bother telling them those lies, just tell them that you don/t like to tell them, at least you are just being honest to them.. and the last, i want to curse all those TRAITORS..! TRAITOR- i really really hate traitors..grrrr thanks to this discussion, i remember those people who i hate the most in my entire life..haha, (joke)
25 Jul 09
Haha had to laugh it out on your last sentence, you joker. Yes traitors are defintely a no no and the other two you mentioned. Some people deserve to learn a lesson or two, don't they?

I hate followers (People who copy other people in everything) and snobs, i can't stand being around snobs, i hate them so much.
24 Jul 09
Haha what a funny comment on the snobs you have, yes I gotta agree with you on that. I have quite a lot of them back home and its saddening when you know there is a barrier between you and that person just because he may have better academic grades than you thus they think highly of themselves and in their eyes you are nothing but a loser. On your first point though, the problem is humans are sheep and thats a fact. Everyone has someone who they copy and there are some who realize this and love doing so whereas others who do not. They may think to themselves i follow no one but little do they know that they might be following another person's lifestyle but still haven't realized it because they are doing it unconsciously. I like your comment though very short, simple and to the point!

I truly agree with you. They eventually end up being more cocky, and get up all in your face.

What is arrogane and ignorance in one mans eyes might be useful in another mans eyes. I am one that doesn't judge on the first words out of their mouth. Some people who are nervous around certain ones will sometimes go on on with their talk. Those ones who try to up grade themselves just may not have the exciting stories or life experience that others do ,and they may feel the need to change or add to their own. Give people a second chance and then make your opinion. That is only fair. I give everyone a second chance and hate no one.
24 Jul 09
I completely understand your point mate but surely there has been times in your life where you have had to put up with some really bad behaviour or rude personality of someone. Surely life hasn't been that perfect for you or else you may find yourself being envied by me hehe... On the arrogance and ignorance side, that was just my point of view, how about your point of view from the experiences you have had in your lifetime where you may have disliked a person for a reason?
• United States
25 Jul 09
Oh yes I have had my share of people being right down rude to me. I have run across people that after getting to know them I just can't stand to be around. But you know people like that are the ones that are lost.

I guess arrogance and ignorance is something everyone hates. A know it all who actually doesn't know much. But there are times that you have to bear these people. everyday. and that can become torture. I should know. the question is how do you deal with it?
25 Jul 09
Yeah thats a really good point to make, i guess my next question should be how do you deal with a certain attitude or behaviour that you do not like, unless you have already taken it of course hehe. ;P

Uugh. For me it's pretty similiar. I HATE cockiness and arrogance and when they think they're better than someone else. I also hate people who think they are better than someone either because of a job or they are richer and they refuse to talk to people they think aren't good enough for them to talk to, like say a blue collar worker. :( I think that's just snobby. And lastly like you said ignorance/closed minded is REaLLY atrocious. They will look at something and laugh at it and make jokes out of something that should be serious or they will be prejudiced against someone and have no reason for it. for example, hating black ppl, fat people, foreign ppl n not even knowing them and using stereotypes to call them out or justify being mean to them. n sorry i know it's not just one thing like you said. but u get the point, i just hate cocky arrogant closed minded ppl and i just try to avoid them.
25 Jul 09
Yes don't worry you got your point across really well hehe. Its true these type of people are very difficult and in the end all you can do is master the ways in how to approach and respond to such personalities or else its us that will suffer.

If they act like they are very greedy. Instead of saying thanks for the cake - they say "can I get another piece" or even "I want two pieces!!!" I thinks that sucks. And I really don't like shy persons. And persons where I have to make the conversations, and they just go "yes. no. no. no. yes. okay" without even saying more.
25 Jul 09
Yeah greediness and the inability in making conversations can be quite an annoying thing sometimes. Its like the other person hasn't got a brain to actually beign a good conversation. I feel they probably are very lazy type of people or they are just very personal and secretive.

i am like you in that i dislike people who think they are better than everyone else and certainly you! i also dislike people who do not have an open mind to new ideas. i understand that old people are set in their ways but it is still wrong.
25 Jul 09
lol I didn't quite get you there, are you saying you dislike me too because I believe that i am better than everyone else? I can see what you nean when you say old people are set in their ways, I have seen that alot through friends who have stict cultures and have to adhere to every single tradition the culture has, its quite a fustrating situation i must say.

I do not like when people look down on me and treat me like I am lower or less of a person than them. I also do not like when people believe they are superior to others and what they have to say is greater and more important any what you have to say.
25 Jul 09
Yeah such people deserve a class in understanding what humbleness is, they probably never came across it in their life. hah.

Both of those things. Also rudeness and unfair, meanly worded criticism (polite, constructive criticism is OK).
25 Jul 09
Yeah i see what you mean, those who criticise with such a mean attitude kind of reminds me of snakes ready to pinch you anytime you try to move haha.

i also have a problem with arogence...i no that some people beleave that its good for a person to be like that....kinda like thinkin that arrogence and confidence are the same thing....i know alot of people that are so arogent that thier fake, and thats what i dislike most about someone is lieing, and fakeness...when people have to lie about who they are jus to feel more importain than everyone else its jus this sick ego trip that i cantstand about people....i try to view everyone as equal and hope that everyone else would do the same....i know im not better than everyone....errrggggg...lol
25 Jul 09
Yeah I coudn't agree with you more, i guess there are some people out there who just don't know the meaning of humbleness, honesty and uniqueness and its probably comes down to the way they have been brought up in their youth.

I dunno if I start hating a person if I dont like his traits. But yes I definitely try to avoid his company. I dislike hypocrites. I dislike rudeness and arrogance and selfishness.

[i][/i]"As for me I hate arrogance and ignorance. Don't try to be someone who you aren't and don't speak of what you do not know." Boy, those are my exact feelings. But I might add a few more...people who assume they know what I am thinking and feeling, which also falls under the category of judging others...people who stretch the truth, people who will never say "yes, you were right", people who act one way with some people, and act another way with others, those who have no concept of what common sense is, who don't put themselves in other's shoes before they make a comment, and stupidity. However, I don't hate these people, I just don't choose to be in their friendship. I'm sure I have just as many faults as the next guy.
24 Jul 09
Wow what can I say, a brilliant response to my question hehe. I am so glad you have brought up those who judge others to this topic, hopefully the person above is reading this and understand that judging is also not a good thing and she should add it as one of the points she she note when learning the difference between good and bad. I found that those who have little or no consideration of others seems to be those who may have been spoiled too much or just really selfish type of people. I have noticed that in certain friends of mine who are big time players and only wish to fulfill their desires and needs instead of happily doing something that you like for a change.

I hate person who is concieted and boatful, especially who looks down people who he/she thinks poorer.There such whom I know a person that is very boasteful and concieted and i really hate her, as if she's only the person in this world, she has no considerations at all especially to those ordicary people.
24 Jul 09
Yeah you should go up to her and slap her wildly across her face and if she tries to fight back, spit in her face and let her know how much you hate people like her. Okay what I am doing? It seems like I am putting myself into your shoe, oops. I can feel how you feel, thats why i wrote the above the sentence. I understand everyone has faults but the problem is when they repeatedly keep on doing the same wrong things that really gets on my nerves, I wouldn't stop you if you ever did that to her.

Hello Monsterblood this is checkmail and me too hate arrogance, ignorance as well as unacceptance of facts.I don't like the persons who pose as a fake entity or behave like the other one.Even the peoples who don't find themselves guilty on commiting wrong things, me hate the most.THey never realise their mistakes just keep on doing it again and again till they are finished.And some peoples who just want to create tension and problems for other in order to have fun for themselves.Such peoples are a burden on the whole world.
24 Jul 09
Rightly said, its like they need a wack on themselves to wake up and to feel what they have done, has hurt someone's feelings. Its like only they are the ones who have feelings and we don't. Recently I just had a big argument with a close friend of mine and the main phrase that keeps going in my head because i made sure he heard me properly was - 'I am not a f***ing animal am I? I have got feelings too you know!'. I expressed it really well, he had nothing to say back to me...blah. When I have a problem with someone, I make sure they know exactly how i feel, its just the way i am. I hate keeping it inside and ruining my mood for the whole day or days, weeks etc.

There are many things to dislike in a person. Even people that you like have qualities or characteristics which are undesirable. I guess it is a matter of how well you know them. People tend to be on their best behavior when you don't know them so well and when you become familiar with them they turn out to be monsters.
24 Jul 09
I agree with you completely, this is what we humans are like eh? Be gold in front of strangers but be 'monsters' in front of known ones..hah.
