Types of people you can't stand

August 21, 2008 6:52am CST
Do you find that the types of people you can't stand the most, are the very types you seem to run into over and over again? I sometimes feel as if I am a magnet for individuals whose character can just really get under my skin. I really don't like greedy, self absorbed people as well as gotta be in control all the time types. Yet I can't seem to avoid them, some how or some way they seem to get into my life, via work colleague, neighbor or someone my brother marries, LOL. Do you find this to be true for you? If so how are they in your life? If not what is the secret? LOL What types of people irritate you the most? How do you deal with them? Thanks in advance, I read all even if I don't reply to all.

Hi sunshinecup! My least favorite type of person is the self-absorbed type. Everything is about them. Unfortunately, I run across many people with this personality trait. Most are random people, like neighbors, but I do have a family memebr or two like this as well. How do I deal? I usually spend as little time around them as possible or I just let my eyes glaze over when they start yapping about themselves!

People who have a habit of telling lies. I hate liars. And those people who wants to portray themselves as "rich", unreachable illussionists, lol. I hate them. Because I love to be simple and not too showy and it's hard for me to tell lies.

i dont get irritated by anyone because i dont put up with anyone that i get a weird vibe from. its simple if i think i see someone i cant stand and is going to annoy me iwould just move away from that person and not have to deal with it at all. if i absolutely had to deal with them then i wouldnt be able to keep my mouth shut and would probably end up telling them that they are annoying to their face. im pretty blunt like that. its a good and bad habit, but it has yet to let me down.

Hi sunshine, I have no friends that irritates me and only 2 co-workers in the past whom I can't stand because they complain about everything that we have, the salary,services, plan of the company, etc etc..I used to make an excuse whenever they are around and when I have no choice, will just nod my head and do not say anything!

People like my ex I cannot stand. Hot tempered, abusive, mean, think they are better than others and the world revolves around them. I also can't stand fake people, like my neighbor. He thinks he knows everything and everyone and acts so fake and overly friendly with everyone he passes. He is also loud and obnoxious. I've seen this man across the store and he shouts hello at me. Its so silly and makes everyone stare.

i dislike people who are narrow-minded because they're the sort who can never get past their own thinking. they refuse to accept reality as it is and are stuck in their own little world. i often see these types in various forums and i just ignore them. i don't even bother replying because what's the use? they won't listen anyway. fortunately i haven't met such a person in real life. i'd have a hard time handling him/her.

I can't stand fake people and I can spot them a mile away. I also don't like loud people, who just CANNOT talk in a normal voice. My new SIL is really loud and loves to argue about things she knows nothing about, just for the sake of argument. I don't visit them too much...

Working in the restaurant business i get to see all kinds of people. If a coworker is annoying i will let them know up front.. i do not hold anything back when it comes to feelings.. This isnt always a good thing but atleast they know where I stand.

there r a few people who really irritates me n also there a few of them whom i hate the most but i cant help it n tell others that i hate them n i cant see them front of me. if its someone else that u hate n have to see them once in a way it was possible for me to tolerate n never complain about it to any one n also i might have not taken it seriously about it.there r few of my relatives who come into this category but i never care them as i need to see them only sometimes n it is ok for me. but i have someone at home whom i hate n all knows it but then to i cant help n need to stay with them. i really try to adjust but nothing works as the person i m speaking about is closely related to me n from the time i know her she is being rude to me n i cant forget the things she has done it to me n hence i dont like it. if it was the case with my friends i might have been normal as friends r choosen by us n its very rare that we find problems with them. if we face any problems with them we can just decide something to continue friendship or not but this cant be done in relationships n hence we need to suffer seeing them again n again.

hi, if that someone with character i don like is not a friend, office mates, clients or relative than i am lucky .. i will not meet them at all but if they are one of the above, i have got no choice but to be with them. it is very difficult not to be irratated by them .. but as you said .. they will just come to you .. i don have any advise .. without any choice and to survive i have to be ignorant .. since i already know their character, i dont let it hurt me in any ways .. my husband is the only person who helps me in this because he listens to my grumble about this characters .. thanks to him , he even listens about his mothers and sisters without getting angry ..

I guess I do have a similar experience although not apparently as much as you. These kind of quirks do seem to be everywhere and I think they are the end product that teaches people that they have to be on top of every situation everywhere. Its hard to get humble, selfless people these days and unfortunately I don't have a solution to this problem. Its the kind of world we live in.

Actually I don't like to communicate with most of the people. I am strict with myself. And I can easily find weakpoints of others, I can't help doing that. So I don't want to make friends with others because they are not as perfect as I expect. But I am quite generous with my relatives and my wife.

WOW thanks for being so honest. I do this as well, so yer not alone. I don't know why I do this, but I also pick out all of my own faults as well and sometimes I dwell on them.

Maybe it's a kharma kinda thing and you are supposed to learn to understand why those people are that way and why it bothers you much. I can't stand hypocrisy and I see a lot of it but I don't think I'm doing much learning or growing from being exposed to hypocrites. I still can't stand them and I try to avoid them way more than I try to understand them.

lord yes.. it's like i got a sign on me here i am come and get on my damn nerves.. we got those in our family as well. but i am very straight forward to everyone so i have a habit speaking my mind openly and then i get my wife upset at me how i tell people they are jerks or worst. i tell them no you are not in control of me, i do and say whatever i want. yeah the type of people who get to me the most, are theft, racest people, control freaks, those who will cry about how screwed up their live is and won;t do nothing about, then we got the one who will preach to us what we need to do to improve our life and thier life is more screwed up then my. can't leave out those who are fake christins who preach at us about how we will go to hell, and judge everyone. ok damn i hate most people..
