#1 People Who Gossip
Inc. calls them “gossip mongers” and what they do is go around gossiping about you. Be cautious of people who bring gossip to you as well as they might be doing the same with whatever you tell them. LifeHack says the only solution for a gossiper is to get them out of your life because they can be cancerous.
#2 The Critic
Psychology Today talks about relationships that make you feel judged and criticized. These so-called friends don’t just have advice or suggestions for you – they only have criticism. A dead giveaway of a critic is when someone is critical of something you’re doing but doesn’t bother to offer any type of solution. Nothing you do will ever win the critic’s approval. Inc. describes these people as “emotional vampires” who need to constantly criticize you in order to feed their own sense of self worth.
#3 Jealous Types
Inc. refers to these people as green-eyed monsters. According to Lifehack, these envious types will always resent you for your success whether you try to make them a part of it or not. Inc. points out that these types of people will often put down your achievements and minimized your successes in order to satisfy their own envy.
#4 Narcissistic Types
Vain people don’t often make good friends. Some people go past the point of vain and can be legitimately narcissistic. Psychology Today says that a narcissist will act like they’re God’s gift to the universe. Inc. describes these people as walking selfies. Lifehack describes these people as egotists saying that they’re full of themselves and think they’re better than everyone around them.
#5 The Victim
Nothing is ever this person’s fault. Somehow, the victim manages to spin every situation in to them being wronged in some way. This person can do no wrong. Lifehack suggests cutting these types of people out of your life.
#6 The Parasite
They are always feeding off of your positive energy but make sure to give you some of their negative energy. They are only in a friendship for their own selfish needs, and have only their self interest in mind. According to Lifehack, parasites should be avoided at all costs.
#7 The Control Freak
Lifehack says that the control freak is always trying to get you to do their bidding. They may be dominating in many aspects of your friendship. Inc. describes them as “conversation hogs” and talks about how they tend to dominate a conversation and control its direction to suit their own interests.
#8 Pathological Liars
Some people can’t help but lie. If you have a friend that lies all the time there is a chance that they might not even be able to control it. Psychology Today talks about Antisocial Personality Disorder and potential psychopathy in habitual liars. Lifehack points out that being around people who lie frequently can destroy you.
#9 The Retrogressive
Some friends really know how to bring up the past, and seem to be constantly living in a state of stagnation. According to Lifehack these types of friends always have a way of distorting your own progress, and dragging you back to old ways.
