Every day we come across several people with different personality traits. Some of these people make a lasting impression. But, unfortunately, there we meet few or several toxic people leaving you drained. So, here is a list of ten types of toxic people to stay away from.

1. Manipulators.

Manipulation is one of the most common toxic personality traits. Manipulators always want something from you, because, for them, it’s all about taking with little or no giving, which is a sure sign of toxic people troubling us all the time.

2. Criticizers.

Criticizers will consistently judge you. No matter how good you are at your task or how many efforts you put in a particular activity, these types of toxic people will somehow find a way to tell you that it’s not good enough.

3. Gossipers.

If you’re with someone who constantly gossips, you need to think it over. Not only are you wasting time with the nonsense, but also corrupting your thoughts. Great minds discuss ideas, not people or the gossips.

4. Self-Absorbed.

It is necessary for everyone to care for your own self but self-absorbed people go way beyond that. Such type of people care only about one’s own self and activities. In the simplest terms, they are selfish, egoist in nature and self-centred.

5. Envious.

One of the worst toxic personality traits is being envious. Envy in other terms means jealousy. We all have had such type of personalities in our lives. Envious people are jealous of your achievements, happiness, success and the love you receive.

6. Needy.

We all have needs. Sometimes, we ourselves aren’t able to fulfil those needs and thus end up asking for someone’s help. But some people make this a habit. They are continually asking for something they need from others.

7. Temperamental.

Temperamental people have no control over their emotions whatsoever and one of the signs of toxic people around. These kinds of people may harm your ability to focus and it’s good to avoid these kinds of toxic people from your life.

8. Dementors.

Dementors are evil creatures that suck people’s souls out of their bodies, leaving them merely as shells of humans. Whenever a dementor enters a room people get cold and immediately start recalling their worst memories.

9. Liars.

We all are liars. But habitual liars leave no room for trust in a relationship. It is extremely annoying to be with someone who is constantly lying on your face. You may even develop mistrust for others because of such people.

10. Slackers.

Slackers are the ones who laze around and don’t complete any tasks assigned to them and depend on others for getting done those tasks. Slackers make you do their work and end up taking the credit for the same themselves.

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.”
