List Rules Vote for the personality traits that really grind your gears!

Let's face it: not everyone is perfect. Even the most charming people are guilty of at least a few negative personality traits. And plenty more people can lay claim to a lot of these negative traits. The worst qualities in a person generally make them act in ways that is offensive, unsafe, selfish, or annoying. We can probably all name typical bad qualities in a person. Whether it be your lazy coworker who always makes you cover for her, your cheating boyfriend who can't seem to be honest with you, or an overly competitive roommate who can never be happy for you – we all have people in our lives who exhibit these negative qualities. (Hopefully we all have people in our lives who exhibit some of these best qualities in a person too!)

If you are wondering, "Am I a bad person?" or are worried you may have a bad personality, this list can help you do some soul-searching and discover the truth. This list of negative personality traits is votable and rerankable, so you can create your own version and tell the world exactly which negative character traits you can't stand and in which order. If you need more gender specific criteria, feel free to check out the Worst Qualities in A Man and the Worst Qualities in A Woman too.
