People Share Subtle Signs That Someone Isn't A Good Person

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.

It Works Both Ways

"They believe that respect is earned but demand it immediately from you."

– GrilledCheeser

Prelude To A Diss

"Or, conversely, when they love to constantly say 'With all due respect' right before they disrespect someone."

– putdownthekitten

A World Of Their Own

"Someone who is incapable of reflecting. They are the centre of their own universe. They are unable to grasp the big picture or how they fit within it. Everyone has a place in the larger picture, which is their small view of the world."

– No_Maximumdse

Untrustworthy

"They share private information about others with you."

– RaeDeclin

Spewing Falsities

"Casual unnecessary lying."

– Dense_Composer_8479

Saying "sorry" is too much for some people to say.

Passing On Responsibility

"Not owning up to their mistakes and always attributing it to someone or something else."

– tiredandsad1

Feigning Ignorance

"My mom's famous line when caught doing something wrong 'Well, I didn't know' instead of 'I'm sorry.'"

– Dre4mGl1tch

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

Red Flag

"Yes. Watched a guy stick his gum on the underside of the bar and instantly knew we wouldn’t be going on another date."

– muscle_princess_

Parking Lot Protocol

"Yes, kinda along the same lines of people who don’t return their grocery cart. That lack of respect."

– marlynwor

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."

– evilthales

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.


There is nothing people hate more than when a major turning point in their favorite TV show is spoiled for them.

Friends were undoubtedly lost over the fate of Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy, fights broke out over who killed Omar Little on The Wire, and the identity of "A" on Pretty Little Liars.

The anger of these devoted viewers becomes more and more ironic with each passing year, as they eagerly rewatch these shows on a semi-regular basis.

Despite knowing every possible twist, turn, surprise kiss, or unexpected death.

This time, however, they don't care, as the mark of a good show is one that creates a world we just want to reenter over and over again.

Perhaps the lack of any possible "spoilers" only increases our enjoyment.

The Worst Parts About Being Left-Handed

Roughly 12 percent of the world's population is left handed.

Studies have shown that being in this distinct minority comes with a number of advantages.

Indeed, four the last seven Presidents of the United States were all left-handed,

And considering Phil Mickelson, Rafael Nadal and Oscar De La Hoya are all left-handed as well, it seems lefties are at an advantage on the field or in the court or arena.

Though, if you were to speak to a left-handed person about their experience, they'll more than likely bemoan all the disadvantages of being a lefty.

Of which, there are admittedly several.

The Best Sitcom Characters Of All-Time

There is little more comforting than lounging on the sofa, and binging your favorite sitcoms.

What ultimately makes sitcoms so comforting, in addition to the clever writing and improbably affordable apartments, are the characters.

Why Friends continues to gain a new legion of fans, even nearly 20 years after its finale, is the fact that those watching often want Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and especially Phoebe to actually be their friends.

Or wish their own friends' dynamic was more like that iconic sextet.

Indeed, people would be much less hesitant to show up for work if they knew The Office's Jim or Pam would be waiting for them, or think that their school days might have been more pleasurable if taught by Abbot Elementary's Janine Teagues.

Characters who are so lovable, it almost breaks our hearts that they aren't real.
