    bigotry. transphobia, homophobia, racism and all the horrible ways people try to justify it and come to its defense. -_-
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    (Nevermind the negative affects of this term on people actually named Karen - like one of my cousins.)
    That is a good way to look at it. Yeah, I can understand if there's a problem is there that needs to be fixed, like an allergen or getting the wrong order. It's when they start to humiliate the employees, or put so much time into things that can easily be fixed that I really start to get steamed. When you can really here the seething anger in their voice. I've had customers actually named Karen that were perfectly kind-maybe the term is being overused a bit. I do have some guilt of acting like one-well it wasn't to the staff themselves. I was one when I was 10-I remember I ordered milk at a fair and then said chocolate quickly afterwards and no one heard me and I really should have expected that. My milk was just chilling there, and they asked why it was and I said it's cause I wanted chocolate. I remember too my mom ordered for me at a restaurant-I pointed at a "Baja Burger", and I said I wasn't sure how to pronounce that so I thought she would have registered that I didn't know how to say Baja but she ordered the thing above it. I could have just corrected her but instead I just whined when the dish arrived to the table and I said, "I am not eating that!". It's been years but I still beat myself up over that.

    I just dislike when people seem indifferent to everyone's feelings but their own.

    It reminds me of how in horror movies, the villains will put you through Hell and ignore all your screams n stuff. But the minute you fight back and do something as small as poke them in the eye, they're like "Ow, my eye!!!" How does that work?

    I don’t know what my least favorite quality in people are. But I know I find it REALLY UNATTRACTIVE when people lack self reflection. An inability for introspection and self awareness and self control. Falling for every impulse and whatever storm might hit you in life. THAT is very unattractive to me. Resilience is sexy.

    Also, an inability to make mental connections and people who are too literal.

    Yeah, I don't like this either. Personally, I am not a passive or subtle person--I tend to be very direct. Some people have falsely accused me of being passive-aggressive when I wasn't, though.

    Disliking conflict doesn't make a person a weakling or a pushover, but not standing your own ground because you can't deal with it does...or at least, in that one area (strength has multiple definitions / facets). I think being passive-aggressive is a part of weakness also...part of why if I have something to say to someone, I outright say it, I don't beat around the bush about things. I've been straightforward and direct since I was little though. It's not something I'm afraid to do, I'm a bold person.

    Does anyone throw their weight around for the sake of it though? That seems like some sort of shallow understanding of what's going on tbh.

    Re: what I said above about "idiocy" - was a vent about a very specific situation with a now-ex / then-bf that is not on here who I would try and try to talk things out with, only to be met by a wall. So I'd say it was more like he kept invalidating my feelings / views, refusing to listen, and then coming up with his own ideas of what things were. Not idiocy.

    Those of us who think, on a site devoted to the measurement of personality, they have carte blanche to comment on the personality of others.

    We comment on the personality of others, when we want to manipulate them, and are insecure in our own personality.

    A secure person respects their own boundaries and the boundaries of others, and limits themselves to the issues, and to speaking about themselves.

    Bigotry, arrogance, being mean just to be mean without any reason, people who make mean jokes/talk bad about others and say others are too sensitive but the moment you fight back/make a mean joke about them they get offended and cry about it
