We all know people who are just so negative and unappealing. Whether it’s a boss, teammate, or classmate, the characteristics they possess make them difficult to be around. From being overly critical to lacking self-awareness, here are 6 character traits that turn people off.

1. Self-Centeredness

Being selfish is one of the most off-putting traits someone can have. Selfishness implies that someone is not interested in considering the feelings or opinions of others and instead only values their own ideas and beliefs. This trait can lead to tension among friends and family members as it can cause relationships to become strained over time.

2. Chronic Negativity

Do you know someone who always seems to complain? Someone who never has anything positive to say? This type of attitude is draining for everyone else around them and it often turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy as they tend to get what they expect out of life.

3. Dishonesty

Lying about anything from small things like being late for an appointment or larger issues such as stealing money from your employer will eventually catch up with you in some manner. Integrity is key in any relationship, whether professional or personal, so if someone repeatedly lies it’s bound to create doubt and mistrust in those around them.

4. Lack of Self-Awareness

People who lack self-awareness tend not to recognize their own strengths and weaknesses which can make them difficult for others to work with as well as frustrating for those around them who have no choice but to point out their flaws when needed.

5. Overly Critical Attitude

Nobody likes being around someone who constantly puts down other people’s ideas or work without offering any constructive solutions or advice on how to improve things instead of just pointing out what’s wrong with them all the time. This type of attitude tends to rub people the wrong way quickly and greatly reduces any chance at developing meaningful relationships with others in the future since no one wants to associate themselves with such a toxic person!

6. Arrogance

Pride may come before a fall but arrogance will certainly push people away even faster than that! Arrogant people believe they are better than everyone else which leads them down a path where they feel entitled to special treatment wherever they go without having earned it first through hard work or dedication towards something specific like their job or hobby for example.

No one enjoys being around someone whose personality leaves much to be desired! We all have certain character traits that might turn some people off more than others so it’s important for us all to take inventory of our own behavior from time-to-time and do our best not too let these undesirable traits take control over our lives negatively impacting our relationships both personally & professionally along the way!
