Recently there was an interesting discussion on Reddit about the horrible qualities that make you stay away from a person. Users shared their life experience and recognize the “narcissist” in their friends or relatives. And it looks like some of them are very fed up with the rude behavior of others.
We decided to dig deeper into some of the threads and find the psychological explanation of a “bad” person.
1. Avoiding responsibilities
“Avoiding your responsibilities and sticking someone else with the bill” was called out as one of the bad qualities on Reddit. Fear of taking any kind of responsibility can cause a psychological disorder.
A person, for example, can have a panic attack whenever they unconsciously realize that there is an obligation. It may happen for different reasons:
1. Low tolerance to negative emotions
2. Lack of courage
3. Low self-esteem
4. Fear of making mistakes and fear of failure
2. Inability to accept criticism
Ouch. No one wants to be criticized. It hurts, but sometimes people can’t even swallow the simple truths about themselves. But being open to new information means an ability to change for the better. “Taking any kind of criticism or conflicting opinion as a personal attack” is not cool, according to Reddit users.
And if we can take criticism, we can grow. But there is still the question of why some of people can be so closed-minded:
1. They don’t rationalize.
2. They don’t want to make excuses.
3. They don’t minimize the problem.
4. They don’t want to share the blame.
