14 People Discuss What They Think Folks Shouldn’t Revolve Their Entire Personalities Around
You really need to get a personality…
No one ever wants to hear that statement, but the fact is that a lot of people out there don’t have much of a personality at all OR they only focus on one thing.
So what do people need to stop revolving their personalities around?
Here’s what AskReddit users had to say.
My friend is married to a woman who is obsessed with Mickey Mouse. I don’t get it. Like what you like, I guess, but it’s just something that stands out about her.
She must have other traits, but after several years, it’s the one that stands out.”
2. Born country.
I know plenty of actual farmers who don’t act like a character out of a Toby Keith song.”
3. Actions, not words.
““I’m an empath!”
If you were empathetic – or simply a somewhat decent person – you would prove that by doing, not by saying.
I find people who say they’re “empaths” are usually shallow, manipulative, and narcissistic jerks who want to label themselves as an excuse for being an a-hole.”
4. Who cares?
“S**uality. Who you love isn’t your personality.
When I’m watching a baking show and the contestant regularly says “well as a gay/lesbian/bi ….. I choose chocolate”.
Why is that relevant to what you’re baking?”
5. Lookin’ at you.
“I’m surprised it’s not near the top, but their car.
I’m looking at you, Tesla owners.”
6. Not a good thing.
“Being in a relationship.
To the point where people are literally miserable and de-value themselves if their not in a relationship.
It teaches them to stick with relationships they know are bad or not real just to avoid being single, and they never really work on their true selves, as an individual human being.”
7. Not that important.
“Defining yourself by introversion and extraversion. It’s actually not technically the big overarching personality trait everyone thinks it is.
For instance, I love socializing and having fun with people and can be loud and bold, but I require alone time to recharge my battery and get my energy back.
My boyfriend is the opposite. Socially pretty quiet and laid back, but he needs to be around his friends and people to feel energized.
So yeah, being social and chatty doesn’t necessarily equate with extraversion and being quiet and shy doesn’t equate with introversion.”
8. Love dogs, but…
““Dog mom” or “dog dad”.
A friend of mine is obsessed with her cat which is fine, but then she doesn’t get it that no one else would ever be that obsessed with her pet and it gets so tiring.
Every second day she’ll send out photos of the animal like “isn’t he the cutest thing” and it’s starting to feel like manipulation at this point to constantly keep complimenting it. I get it, I have Guinea pigs, I love them to d**th but I don’t expect everyone else be as crazy about them as I am. It gets tiring.”
9. Alpha dogs!
“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, people that refer to themselves as alpha males need to be punched in the face.
It’s a corrective measure meant for their own good. There are several lessons in life I would have learned faster if someone punched me in the face.”
10. So DUMB.
The tend of being dumb and wilfully ignorant…
Why is that being glorified?”
11. Pump the brakes.
It’s fine to be h**ny but please there’s a difference between being normal h**ny and annoying.”
“People who identify as a**holes.
I have a friend like this on FB. All his posts are about how he’s “such an a**hole but tells it like it is” or how scared people should be if they p**s him off.
I keep following for the cringe humor.”
13. Just part of it.
“Having been in the military.
And I say this as someone who spent 24 years in the military.
It’s just a part of your life, not your whole life.”
14. Come on!
“Weed and al**hol.
I partake in both on occasion but, Jesus…”
