    People don't really stress me out, but their behaviors might.

    Number one with a bullseye is the kind of people that pressure me for me to give on-the-spot emotional feedback without allowing any processing time (because it's more "genuine" that way apparently).

    People that generate loads and loads of emotional noise. I can't be around them for long periods of time.

    People that change The Plan last minute all the time and don't give me any time to process it or prepare for it. I had a coworker last year with whom I would do presentations with and she'd change our scheduling all the time without telling me until five or ten minutes before we had to go - this would happen at least once a week, if not more often. Drove me crazy.

    People that show up at my house unexpected, uninvited, and expect me to be ready to entertain them. :steam:

    Mmm recalling this and writing these up is getting me a little stressed. Time for some tea.

    I don't like people who make no effort to contain their anger; like people who scream at strangers in public. I know everyone gets angry sometimes, it's just some people make no effort whatsoever to hold themselves back and they see to do it a lot; obviously not a lot of people, but you see them sometimes, it's annoying.

    I don't like it when people swear constantly, it's unnecessary and sounds disgusting.

    AMEN

    Overt anger,insincerity, pushy-ness, overt rudeness, hypocritical behaviors,flakiness (and at times I think I come off as flaky, but feel horrible about it...), people who lack self-control, people who lack emotional-control, braggarts, conversation monopolizers, whiners....

    My mom stresses me out. She cannot manage money, and is always looking for ways to acquire more (the easy way) because she's spent all of hers.

    She stresses me out because she's always needing more of it. She won't say "I need this much every month", she will ask me for this much (which is a lot already), and then pressure me for more a couple days later because of X emergency, then she will up the amount she needs montly because of X, Y and Z, and it's neverending.

    That type of person stresses me out.

    And she talks about "retiring".

    I can relate to some of this. I don't mind the emotional switching unless there are bouts of anger. That sort of moodiness unnerves me. I like for people to make some sense, whatever that be. I can still like the person, but I keep an automatic distance.

    People who can't see past the wall of their own ego don't seem to have a way to integrate new information, so I just let them alone. There's nothing to negotiate or learn. They're stuck.

    People who use fear to get their way tend to have lack of ideas. They're also stuck and try to make everyone else equally paralyzed.

    Then after I start thinking about it, a part of me feels badly for them because I wonder what happened to make them that way. I wouldn't want to be stuck or be in continual conflict with reality, or unstable. I also know that interacting with problem peole has some obvious negative results, so that doesn't seem like a great plan either.

    Just coming back to reiterate this. Yes. Other people's stress — exponentially moreso depending on my emotional proximity to them — bleeds over to me so that sometimes I can just get stressed out in response to their stress, especially if I discern an element of true unhappiness in it. If they're just stressing to get their butts into gear I can do a better job of ignoring it, but if their feelings are actually involved...

    I tend to retreat into robot-mode so that I can take step back and recalibrate my own feelings for later. I don't like just immediately mopping up a situation where I can't be sure how objectively I'm evaluating the problem, so in the case of the stress being caused by personal hurt, I might need to stonewall until I can do the emotional processing and figure out where I stand on things. Unfortunately in the meantime the NF unhappiness is bleeding all over me...

    People who try to emotionally manipulate me to an end (rather than it happening organically in response to something like the above) don't stress me out so much as utterly irritate me. Usually they think they're being sneaky when really they're being quite obvious about it.

    For me, at least recently, it's people who are contrived... People who try to act a certain way to try and fit in, and it's so blatantly fake and forced and ughhh makes me cringe!

    The type of people who are more concerned about your reaction to what they say, than what they are actually saying. Like, when planning their response to you, instead of speaking their honest mind, they spew whatever they think will get the right reaction. Like, if I am talking with someone like this, and tell them "OMG I have the funniest joke ever!" No matter what I say next, they will laugh and laugh like it truly IS the funniest joke ever. I could tell them a shitty knock-knock and they would split their sides, because that's how they think I want them to react. And if I open with "OMG I have the lamest joke ever," then whatever I say next (even if it's pants-pissing hilarious), they will react with "oh my goddd you're right, that's awful". Mindless people-pleasers who agree and agree and kiss ass like a sad puppy... Don't they realize that if they had their own opinions (maybe accompanied by a backbone) they would be so much more likable than being a spineless yes-man?

    People who always need reassurance from everyone else... they can't have an opinion unless they know the group shares it. "Wow that movie looks good... right guys? Right? Right? It looks good, right!??!" aaaaaaaaaaggghhhh

    People who only think of the big picture and not the small details that matter to the people actually doing the work (the new director at my job). Oh and micro-managers...

    I would have to say:

    - Liars
    - People that are rude or disrespectful
    - People that mistake arrogance for confidence

    Aggressive and demanding people stress me out. You know the ones that ask demanding questions of you and then berate you for being vague, ambivalent, waffly and contemplative because you didn't give them the answer they wanted. I start to feel really flustered, anxious and vulnerable because everything I do seems to be wrong in one way or another.
