day 8 question

What characteristic do you most dislike?

Let’s assume that this question is asking about a personality trait that I dislike. That would have to be unfriendliness.

There are many personality traits I find unpleasant; like stinginess (eg ungiving, scanty or meager), extreme arrogance and impoliteness but above all I find it difficult to be nice to people who are surly.

It’s commonly known that you make your first impression to people within the first 3 seconds, so if you meet or interact with someone who doesn’t smile, has a permanent scowl on their face and generally just looks like their about to drag you into their shit bucket with them, I just shut down.

I don’t think that everyone has to be a composure of robotic smiley-ness but greeting someone with politeness is a courtesy that we seem to be losing in this day and age.

  1. It’s like you’re in my head with this post; it’s sort of become cool to be rude to people nowadays. To me, being happy and friendly (even if you don’t feel like it) makes everyone’s day better but some people like drama I guess.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog also πŸ™‚
