The Top 15 Personality Traits That Immediately Send Others Packing

We surround ourselves with people who we enjoy spending time with. People who mesh well with our lives, beliefs, and even our personalities. Not everyone is going to make the cut, and that is totally okay!

We don’t want our life full of toxicity or people who just aren’t our cup of tea! Sometimes there is just one personality trait that just doesn’t work for you. Recently someone asked the question, “What’s a personality/trait a person can have that makes you instantly dislike them?”

One person commented, “Saying hurtful things in the name of comedy. There is a fine line between making fun of someone and insulting someone.”

Another person replied, “Yeah. There’s a pretty significant difference between playful teasing and straight-up bullying. I especially hate when these kinds of people pull the “just a joke” card. Last I checked, jokes aren’t supposed to hurt.”

A second user added, “I know many people like this; how much you give them solutions, they will choose to play the sad, depressed victim SCREAMING I WANT ATTENTION, never try to deal with their problems.”

They’re exhausting people to be around and a worthless friendship to have.”

A second Redditor replied, “People who praise themselves at every turn while simultaneously negging you in every similar scenario.”
