Newsflash to all the snobs: No one person is better than everyone else! We are all humans. We are all filled with flaws, regardless of how perfect these people might think they are. Snobs walk around like they’re God’s gift to earth, and are in need of a huge reality check.

It’s difficult to try and reason with these people because they’ll always think they’re better than you. So, try killing these ones with kindness while ignoring the imaginary high horse they think they sit on. Maybe one day they’ll pull their head out of their ass.

6. The Ruthless Bully

That one person who makes fun of everyone with no remorse. No empathy. Not caring that they may be genuinely hurting someone’s feelings. These people suck.

And if you ever see someone being bullied, say something. No one deserves that. And these people need to get a life and get a hobby. Maybe if their lives were better, they wouldn’t spend so much of it picking on others.

7. The Pompous Asshole/Douchebag

That guy with the crude, insulting jokes… you know, the ones he makes about women making sandwiches or how many girls he slept with this weekend. This type of guy is usually not very bright. He’s extremely rude and offensive, giving no fucks about anyone else’s feelings except his own.

However, some of these guys are actually very sad humans deep down. They use their asshole-ness as a defense mechanism, a way to feel better about how empty their lives truly are. Try being kind to a guy like this, or get to know him before making a judgment call. But if he cracks one insensitive joke from the start, run.

8. The Narcissist

Narcissists should come with a “how-to” guide because they’re are very difficult to handle. They glorify themselves, and have a sense of entitlement as if the world should revolve around them. As a result, they’re not good listeners. They may be hearing what you’re saying, but they’re not actually listening. Instead, they’re just waiting until it’s their turn to speak, because to them, that’s all that matters.

Narcissists have very little respect for anyone else’s feelings, opinions, and boundaries. Appearance is everything to them, and they will go to great lengths to look good. Narcissists are extremely charming and likable at first, so be careful. They know how to make another person feel good, but it is very short-lived and usually for some type of personal gain. They make excuses, never take the blame, and are very quick to point fingers. The worst part is, they don’t typically realize they’re doing any of these things.

9. The Drama-Setter

Ah, the drama-setter. We certainly all know one. This person lives for shit-talking, stirring the pot, and letting the drama ensue. Unfortunately, like most of these personality types, this person has such a miserable and boring life that they need something to make them feel better.

They need a distraction, a sense of belonging, or some excitement in their lives, so they choose to start drama. They truly have nothing better to do, or they’ve been wrapped up in it for so long that they now thrive off of it, and don’t know how to stop.

Drama-setters focus on the lives of others rather than their own, so that way, they don’t have to self-reflect. If they did, they would have to realize how poorly they treat others, how much unnecessary anxiety they might cause, or how unfulfilling their life has become.

Moral of the story: We should all try harder to be nicer to one another. No judging, no hating, no discrimination. We should all strive for compassion, peace, and love.
