You don't have to be an expert to instantly peg someone for an a**hole.


Although we should never assume something about a person whom we don't know, our gut can usually be an accurate barometer for a person's character.
It has nothing to do with outer appearances or behavioral idiosyncrasies. Call it energy or a vibe, but the air about an individual can be a very palpable identifier of the type of person they are.

Curious to explore this, Redditor minimotres asked:

"How can you tell if a person is a d**chebag?"

A person with so much bravado is a prime example of a D-bag.

Amen

"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."

Confidence is sexy, but too much self-assurance is just cocky.

The Flunky

"If they're the 'never in the wrong' kinda person. I don't mean someone that has an inability to admit they're incorrect (which is also douchey), but the kind of person, even when caught dead-to-rights, will find a way to claim no wrongdoing. I once caught a college roommate going through a care package my mother had sent me— happily eating the baked goods, perusing the clothing she'd sent— and I was like, 'dude! What the F'K?!' and he goes, 'I thought you said I could have some!' I'd received the package a day earlier, when he wasn't even around, and had put it under my bed while STILL SEALED. Yet he thought that 'I thought you said I could have some' sh*t would work. He even told me to 'chill the f'k out' when I got righteously angry. So glad that jacka** flunked out in the first semester."

Missing The Mark

"They decide whether or not a sh**ty comment they made was 'just a joke' based on people's reaction."

These are the epitomes of condescension.

I Can Do Better

"Everything is a competition. You say you had a long day and you're tired? Well their day was harder and they're MORE tired."

"In a conversation, if they often use phrases like 'Not to brag, but...' And/or are constantly making empty threats."

All About Them

"They have to be the center of attention whether small or big occasions. This being obnoxiously loud, showing off etc. 2nd would be acts different around various people, to once again show off."

If anything goes wrong, don't expect these people to fess up.

The Deflector

"I find if someone constantly blames their hardships/problems/etc on other people, they are usually a d**chebag."

Never Claims Responsibility

"Nothing is ever their fault, it's always someone else's."

"You run into an a**hole in the morning, you ran into an a**hole. You run into a**holes all day, then you're the a**hole."

I saw a guy berating an employee at a clothing retailer for not having the right size shirt in stock.

It was a clear indication to me that this individual was used to getting his way all the time, a classic signifier of someone who was a D-bag.

I felt bad for the guy who was just trying to maintain the shop floor, only to be chewed out when he had absolutely nothing to do with the low inventory.

Of course, the angry customer could have been having a bad day and was taking out his frustration on someone who had nothing to do with his First World problem.

And yet, as I attempted giving the benefit of the doubt, I pointed out another example of why this dude was a complete D-bag.

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
