Usually when we meet someone for the first time whether at a social function, at work, or randomly in public, we generally have a good Spidey sense about the type of person they are.

Even with alcohol in the mix, our instincts can be dulled but we still continue engaging with someone who seems outgoing and friendly enough at the bar.

But we also have the ability to tell right away if that person doesn't have good intentions.


Curious to hear of possible identifiers signaling that someone is suspicious, Redditor PsychologicalPop8776 asked:

"What is a subtle sign someone isn’t a good person?"

These familiar types of behavior really shows a person's true colors.

Familiar Quote

"Obligatory posting of The Narcissist's Prayer:"

'That didn’t happen.

And if it did, it wasn’t that bad.

And if it was, that’s not a big deal.

And if it is, that’s not my fault.

And if it was, I didn’t mean it.

And if I did, you deserved it.'

Sometimes, it's the visible signals that indicate what kind of person someone is.

The Polluter

"Littering. It's not a violent act or anything, but it does indicate a lack of respect that usually carries into other aspects of the person's life."

– BeskarVagina

Communicating With Drivers

"I feel the same way about a number of things people do when driving, specifically using your turn signal. The use of your signal lets other drivers (and sometimes pedestrians) know your intent - allowing them to better anticipate your actions. Not using it indicates you are only thinking about yourself...which is probably how you live the rest of your life."

I was in a packed movie theater once when I saw a woman sitting by herself. She wasn't waiting on anyone but she still saved a seat on either side of her.

When a couple entered her row, one of them politely asked if it would be cool if the woman moved down one seat so she could sit together with her boyfriend.

The woman said, "No" and stayed in her seat. I could hear a chorus of snickers from other audience members witnessing this.

Shocked, the girlfriend said, "Really? You're a horrible person."

Yeah, sounds about right.

Throughout the entire movie, the couple–who wound up flanking the woman on either side of her in their respective seats–kept passing the popcorn bucket to each other right in front of the woman.

In addition to the movie, this was a satisfying plot line to watch.


Conspiracy Theories People Absolutely Believe Are True

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?
