What do you consider to be the worst personality trait for a person to have? Why?

    Idk, selfishness? It can probably branch off from there, but if a person is selfish they can end up distant from others. Selfishness also indicates things like arrogance and other disagreeable traits.

    Arrogance, because arrogance brings upon other bad traits such as obnoxiousness, selfishness, etc. and all of those, as a collective unit, make for someone with unruly character.

      Ignorance. Truly it is a very destructive trait one can have - both to themselves and to others.

        Without a doubt, my answer to this is Greed. Pretty much anyone that hoards things for themselves, & are like, "Hooray for me, & you can burn in hell! You're not getting anything of mine!" The worst thing about it is taking stuff that isn't (rightfully) yours. That's what gets me about greed.

        There are several
        Arrogance: Arrogance of any type just makes a person look bad. Ive been accross a lot of people that think they are so much better than others, these people are just unpleasant to be around. You shouldnt be made to feel bad all the time.
        Apathy: This is a big one for me and probably the main one, people who just dont care about anything, I dont understand how people even can be apathetic and have a dont care attitude towards everything.
        GreedGreedy people should understand you cant have everything and I hate when people take things from others. Sometimes you need to give too.
        Being gullible/ believing whatever you hear, read, etc. Ok, I think everyone should have their own opinion. You shouldnt just accept things people tell you, because it's not always true, doing research is always a good thing.

        I agree with what everybody's saying. But if you ask me, apathy tops my list.

        Arrogant people really tip me off the cliff sometimes, so I'd say that's the worst trait someone could have.

        Sociopathy. That is, lacking sympathy or empathy for others.

          These are all terrible traits indeed, but even a person who is so lost, left to groping around in the darkness, may find their way again.

          Imagine, if you would, a small group of trees. All but one of them are oaken. The last, a willow. A fierce storm blows through, tearing the oaks in half, leaving only the willow. And why is that? Because for all the terrible things the willow tree might be, it still held the capacity to bend and to yield. The absence of such a quality, as the oak trees demonstrated, leads only to demise.

          Stupidity? It leads to all kinds of annoying traits like lack of awareness which can then lead to things like bad hygiene or invading of my personal space.

          That's probably actually the worst trait to have.

            This. Through a large ego comes many unappealing characteristics. So in a sense, IMO, grandiosity is the worst trait to have.

            Stubbornness. I really can't handle it. It makes me feel like I have to back down just to end an argument because someone is so rigid that they're immovable on anything. They're right, you're wrong and there's nothing else to it. I really hate that.

            There are a ton of bad ones here, but I'm gonna go with a lack of empathy, like Toujours mentioned, and also arrogance.

            I know plenty of these kinds of people, and I dislike being around them..

            Either imbecile or inbred, I forget which is worse. Oh lunatic is pretty bad too. (Stupid crusader kings reference is stupid. lol)

            I'm not really sure what word to use to describe it, but I'd say being unwilling to fight for what you believe in, or stand up to someone who is doing something wrong. Bullying for example. Also, being unwilling to help others because there's a crowd of other people around who can do it for you.

            Those examples might be a little too specific, but I can't really think of anything else.

              The worst trait someone can have is to be superficial in all aspects, including mind.

                I'm rather annoying, sarcastic and lazy. I tend to do crazy stuff without thinking... some say I have ADHD.

                The inability to see what you do clearly. Um. idk if the wording makes sense. I just woke up. But basically, I know a person that think they're the greatest at everything and thinks they're a model and singer and such and they're not. They need a reality check. It's an awful trait imo because you don't understand how stupid you make yourself look to everyone else and you end up alienating yourself a bit and getting made fun of. Plus, to not see yourself clearly isn't a good thing.

                Runner up was the inability to love. idk how it lost to what I chose honestly lol.

                I would say being narcissist would be the worst.

                You just can't have fun with those people and they'll always tell you you're wrong even tho you know you're right.

                Most of the time they'll be bossy also.

                  Take what everybody else said above me and there's a pretty big list xD
                  To me though the worst is being a bad influence as it tends to spread easily and then you have a whole group, that could just be the next gang.

                  An oversized ego combined with arrogance is something that turns anyone into very stale person to be around. Especially if that person is in a place of power of you. I'm in the unfortunate position where one of my bosses is very much like this. ~_~

                  ^ I second what Skymin said.

                  Basically having an arrogant nature which can put you in such sticky circumstances, and given the fact I fail at real life social stuff it can make me feel down. It happens to me a lot, having an arrogant nature.

                    ^ All of these are pretty terrible traits... but.

                    I'd have to say being way to serious.
                    Taking yourself to seriously easily leads to ego, apathy, selfishness, narcissism,etc.
