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."

Anger Issues

"They go out on a Saturday night and if they're not getting laid then they're fighting someone."

Superiority Complex

"How they treat anyone performing any service for them. Servers, taxi drivers,etc."

Tough Guy

"The amount of weird, 'tough guy' window stickers on the back window of their vehicle."

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

Manipulator

"Poor listening skills and if they're intent on making you do something you don't want."

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."

Boastful

"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.

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
