agree, overdone compliments and telling me what you think I want to hear. Or thinking you have to be rude or harsh to tell me the truth.

Passive aggression is my biggest pet peeve with any person. It's enough that it is hateful and counterintuitive, but what is most maddening is that I can't detect passive aggression well. Even if I think I do, when I call someone out on it, they can very easily deny it because it isn't explicit enough to be proven. I highly respect people who can instead speak openly about their qualms in a constructive way. When two people have a problem, they should identify the problem in the open, determine how it could be fixed, fix it if possible, and move on together or apart. If you can't learn to get along and love without hidden demons of hate lurking around then you may as well not associate. Life is too short to deal with futile things like that.

This is a big one for me too. I find it difficult to respect people who play games like that.

Insensitivity, Intolerance, Inauthenticity. The dreaded "In" Trinity.:frustrating:

Too much cynicism really annoys the crap out of me.

Music elitists, people who think one genre is better than another.

Indifference towards animals is a huge turn-off.

Short hand texting/typing really makes me pull my hair out, for some reason.

Lack of authenticity - fake people irritate me to no end. It's like I almost have a radar for them , and I can immediately tell that they're not being genuine. I stay away from them as much as I can.

People who tell me what I'm thinking/feeling, or who try to downplay whatever it is I'm going through even though it's obvious that it's distressing to me. "Oh, everyone goes through that" --> :angry:

Materialism, yes.

Hypocrites, and liars. It's simple, I hate them.

Someone mentioned above, contrived and overly formal people. Yes. YES. My parents are like that, and I cannot stand it. It makes me feel so uncomfortable. Close minded people fall under that umbrella as well.

People who are very inflexible, and don't change easily.

ow and religious bigots.and every other kind of bigot you could possibly imagine.

i hate materialists;i had a really bad experience with one such type.
inauthenticity is a big one.i can smell it in them.

lacking the sense of personal space.
and i know this might offend a few people,but im not a fan of anyone who is excessively feministic either..they just over-do it at times

This.

Especially this part "If you can't learn to get along and love without hidden demons of hate lurking around then you may as well not associate."

smh.

Capitalism, consumerism (don't agree with communism either, just don't hate the principle, it's the people that control it).

Religious people who lost the ability to think for themselves, or when they can't have a normal discussion about it.

Fake and overly loud people.

People or groups who want to control each and every aspect of someones life.

-Judgmental people (ever noticed that it's mostly people who lack a lot of information about the topic or really religious people?)

-People who are too smothering nice and are concerned about your feelings and your well-being to an extreme;; it actually makes me really aggressive.
