People Are Sharing Personality Traits People Think Are Good But Are Actually Completely Awful
"I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am."
You know how some people can't stop boasting about their terrible qualities?
Here are some of the best responses:
1. "Being stubborn. Sticking to your guns when you are clearly wrong is not a good thing, nor is refusing to budge on your position so that everybody else has to negotiate around you."
3. "I've found far too many people are proud of how aggressive they can be."
4. "Being proud of being ignorant."
"Example: 'Idk how those vaccines work, but I know one thing for sure is that I don't want my child injected with chemicals.'" —u/Balblair977
5. "Being 'tough' and threatening or intimidating to others to be 'cool' or 'funny.' It's not called being cool. It's called being an asshole."
7. "I have a friend who is proud of her ability to talk over others in a conversation until they give up and let her dominate the conversation from then on."
8. "When people consider themselves to be the deciders of what constitutes 'good taste' not only for themselves, but for others."
9. "Being 'competitive.' It's fine in sports or academics, but when it's just for fun then it makes the person look like they have anger issues."
10. "'I'm not like other girls.' I don't see how putting down and distancing yourself from your own gender does you any good, but you do you I guess."
11. "I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am."
12. "I just call it like I see it."
"Tact, discretion, and critical thinking skills are traits you should strive for. Literally blurting out every thought that pops up in your brain is not. And also, 'call it like I see it' is usually a thinly veiled cover for 'I enjoy saying bigoted, hateful things because I desperately need attention.'" —u/AtariBasic
13. "Being ditzy! It's more common than guys realize because it's not as obvious as it is in the movies. But a lot of girls dumb themselves down to act 'cute' for guys."
14. "A person's capacity to drink. I don't think it's something to be proud of."
"Show me someone who has the will to drink just the right amount, now that's impressive." —u/deployedinspiration
15. "I am a dude and I hate it when guys act super tough and are cocky about it. Like cool dude, you worked out once last week, but that doesn't mean you are the strongest guy around."
16. "Being able to put someone else down just because you don't like them or feel like you want to."
"You're not 'independent and commanding.' You're a bag of dicks no one likes. Terrorizing others isn't a show of dominance, it makes you come off as childish and spoiled." —u/WubbyLubbyDoobDoob
17. "If you care a lot about what you do or consume, you're a connoisseur; if you care a lot about what other people do or consume, you're a snob."
18. "People who boast about their intelligence typically lack any common sense and social graces and are miserable people to be around."
19. "I hate it when people say that they are a 'nice person.' If you're genuinely a nice person then everyone will probably already know it without you telling them."
20. "I really don't get why being an introvert these days is supposed be so awesome."
"I scored 100% for introversion in the MBTI, but I don't think that makes me some sort of special, aloof genius and I like people plenty. All it means is that I kind of run out of social energy about an hour into a party, I hate to answer the phone, and I am the last person you'd want to ask if you're interested in office gossip."
