Everyone has certain habits that drive others bonkers.
But conversely, we also have our good traits – the parts of our personality we're super proud of.
Turns out these so-called "good" traits can actually be annoying too – at least, according to others.
Here are the "good" personality traits that get on people's nerves.
1. High energy extroversion
2. Being way too easygoing
[...] Sometimes you get stuck in a situation where there's a standstill in the group because everyone's being too nice and waiting for cues from somebody else. You just want someone to stop being nice, make up their mind, and be assertive. "What do you want for dinner?" "I dunno, what do you want for dinner?" "I don't care. I'm fine with whatever you want to have." "I mean, I could go either way." "Do you like food? I'm impartial."' "I don't even know what I want. What was the last thing you had?" "WE'RE HAVING CHINESE. EVERYBODY SHUT THE FUCK UP."
3. People who always have to lead
4. People who love their jobs waaay too much
[...] People in management who (with the best of intentions) work 60 hours a week. The whole, "I expect the best from myself, and my team", kind of bullshit. I'm glad you have the drive, dedication and satisfaction from your job to ignore every aspect of your personal life. But that is not a lifestyle decision you can make for other people. If the workload is that bad, you are either managing poorly or need to hire more people. And not having adequate staffing is the same as poor management. Or indicates a much deeper issue with the company itself.
5. Being too cheerful
6. Being excessively complementary
7. Unrealistic optimism
That reminds me of someone who low key criticized a friend who was dying from cancer for being depressed. Really annoyed me because I'd be pissed to if I died young. You don't have to be positive when you're dying.
8. Excessive charisma
10. People who invite others to hangout when you've already made plans
A very old friend of mine is so friendly and easy going, he doesn't realize inviting others (sometimes people I barely know) to join after we've made plans for just the TWO of us to hangout is rude. More the merrier is bullshit.
