People Qualities


I was going to do a blog today about qualities in people that I admire and like and also qualities that I don’t like. Instead I’m just going to list them. This is an unusual blog today, but nonetheless one that we’re reminded of everyday when we deal with the people around us.
If you comment on the blog, make a note of at least one quality you like in others and one you don’t care for. It’s kind of a sharing blog today. 🙂
Likes
Honesty
Caring
Friendly
Helpful
Supportive
Trustworthy
Sincerity
Loving
Intelligent

Dislikes
Liars
Egotistical
Back-stabber
Self-centered
Sneaky
Procrastinators

I could go on and on with the likes and dislikes but I’m sure my point is made.
Please comment on what your likes and dislikes are. I’m sure the results are interesting and I’m sure there are some that I didn’t note above.
Enjoy you day and let’s hope our realm of friends, family and acquaintances share the qualities we admire and we rarely have to deal with qualities we don’t care much for.
No one is perfect, and I would never expect them to be. We are all individuals with a few flaws but what qualities do you like or dislike in a person?

  1. Noooo Patricia doesn’t like me as I’m a procrastinator (only with writing though.) 😦

    LoL

    Likes
    Honesty
    Intellect
    Love
    Humour

    Dislikes
    Double Dealing
    Back Stabbing
    Users
    Politicians (I work on the theory that if you won’t drink with them in the pub, don’t vote for them.)

    • Okay that made me laugh Gareth! Too funny! I don’t mean regular everyday procrastinators because there are things that I procrastinate with too. It’s the people who procrastinate on everything but then again maybe I used the wrong word. People who put off doing just about everything-everything will be done tomorrow. You know what I mean. haha!

  2. The two big “likes” for me are people who are respectful (to others, themselves, the environment, etc) and responsibility.

    My number one “dislike” is liars. I can’t deal with that at all.

    @Gareth – *hugs* I’m a big procrastinator when it comes to writing too.

  3. My top three dislikes have always been and always will be: liars, hypocrites and stupid people.

    I’m not sure if its a flaw in me, but I can deal with jerks and attitudes, but give me stupidity and I’m ready to jump from a ten story building head first. I can’t handle it. Worse yet are those who pretend to be stupid to get out of doing something they don’t want to do. There’s enough honestly stupid people out there. Darwin is my hero.

    As for my likes, loyalty and respect top my list. No matter what other traits you have, if you’re not loyal and don’t have respect, then I don’t need to know you. If you give me loyalty and respect, there’s very little I wouldn’t do for you.

  4. Glad you cleared up that bit about procrastinators!

    My first thought (after that) is “I can tolerate anything but intolerance.” I’ve weeded out most of the liars and etc. in my life, but something that happens occasionally to drive me nuts is meeting someone who feels the need to share his/her “ism” with me.

    You know? Like you’re hanging out with some new acquaintance and things are going well until they say something horrible about a race not represented in the group (ewww, why’d you have to get your racism all over me?) or gays/lesbians (homophobia doesn’t end in “ism” but it certainly fits with racism/sexism/classism).

    • That bugs me too. It’s a judgmental thing. They judge everyone who is different, but are careful enough not to do it to the ones in the group. Yeah it’s definitely a piss off. Who’s perfect? No one. We all have flaws, but I’d probably have to say it’s the extremists that are really irritating. Habitual liars, habitual back-stabbers or judgmental people, etc. Not the once in a while things that you can overlook.
      But I do like honesty in people, especially when it’s not hurtful honesty.

  5. My list is very similar to yours

    LIKES
    Honesty
    Integrity
    Caring
    Friendly
    Open-minded
    Fun

    DISLIKES
    Liars
    Rudeness
    Arrogance
    Back-stabbers
    Intolerant
    Whiners

  6. Great list. I like honest and friendly people and dislike liars and hypocrits.
