What types of people you should avoid

  •  Angry people. There are people who simply cannot control their anger and become furious very easy for any reason. In most cases, they will blame you for making them angry, while is obvious they are seriously troubled. Some of them are narcissistic and are angry when you don’t admire them as they think they deserve, while others are psychopaths who have seizures of uncontrolled rage. The psychological profile of the angry is that of a man or a woman who are temperamental and hypersensitive to criticism and has a set of irrational beliefs about life and the world in general. Everything he/she dislikes deserves to be punished because it is right. The angry man’s behavior is similar to that of a criminal. His twisted spirit of justice leads him to assign sentences of imaginary condemnation to people who mistake them in one way or another.

People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining. (Stephen Hawking)


  • People who drag you down. Negative people are notorious for dragging their friends, partners, children or colleagues. They always have a comment like  “This is not going to work, you’ll fail. Why do you want to get involved in a startup, you’re making a big mistake. Don’t try that idea, you’ll ruin your life” when you are thinking about starting up a new business or just leaving your boring job to do what you’re passionate about. Also, you should avoid as much as possible people who constantly criticize you for anything you do, or that make nasty comments about the way you look or call you names to make you feel miserable.  They always belittle your successes like there is nothing special in what you managed to achieve. They usually are trying to make themselves look good by making you look bad. At times, they may be even using you for making up for a lack in themselves.

  1. Great info and I loved the Rohn quote. This is certainly easy to put in practice for outsiders and just a bit trickier when those personalities are possessed by your closest relatives. This is a great post to share!

  2. I can’t agree more. The toxic people do nothing but bring you down. To stay positive surround yourself with positive ones.

  3. Couldn’t agree more — need to hang out w/positive, optimistic and goal oriented people to help make your life better!

  4. These are all negative people that you have to stay away from. As for me I am not sure I was with a psychopath, but even people with personality disorders have similarities and must be stayed away from because they cannot control and ultimately devalue and do not care for your feelings at all.

    • You’re right, there is not always possible to avoid some people even if you’d like to. You don’t even know how they truly are in the first months.

  5. I agree with most of these and I am one of those who avoid talking to such people if not able to cut them out of my life. Its actually healthy for avoiding unnecessary stress and maintain a normal life.
