Humans are indeed a class apart.The world is made of people! In a lifetime you meet so many people. They all look different, feel different and speak different! I love socialising, uhmm generally. However the psychologist in me will always try to tag people into a certain group or category. The other day, I was amazed at how quickly my brain begins to tag the people I meet. The tags…well here goes 🙂
The Know It All type
The ever powerful ones; everything under my control types. “Uh!! No worries!! This is just a child’s play you see. I’ll take care. That’s just my buddy. We shall talk it out”. You smile for the first time in that day when it has been a drudgery; believing this soul. Poor you, smiled too fast? You only realize its all words and no cake when you just dont hear back from them or they start making excuses when you ask them to call and talk to their “buddy”. These people get a high by exalting themselves and thus satisfy their ego!!!
Tackle Em: Tell them that you believe in being independent and doing things your way!
The Its so easy types
Who has not come across such species? The blowing trumpet types; “Oh I know this. Its so easy. You don’t know?” . This type would rave of how easy it was to find a job or accomplish something. Everything is a cakewalk for them. Get back and say “Oh no; how sad. Not everyone is as lucky as you to be so intelligent!!” You must be a distant relative of the Queen of England, eh?
Tackle Em: Just look straight into their eyes and see their confidence slowly draining!
The Curious Aunty Type
These group of people are always interested in what others are doing. These are the dangerous lot; they build a wrong impression and propagate ideas about you and also fill you with all the news on every other person you both know! They are much worried about your life than your own parents!!
Tackle Em: Don’t piss em off, avoid em!
The Been There, Done That types
Any given situation, you speak about anything and they’d have something to contribute! “I have been there!! I witnessed it” Mind you, literally. These sort of people seem to be there at the right place, watch the right event and meet the right people. Whats there yet that they haven’t laid their hands on?? There’s nothing as such, if there is; its an insult. They could yap off and go on and on and on.Admire them; for their talent to weave stories.
Tackle Em: Ignore!
The I knew this would happen Type
These are people who always nag you with “See, I told you so. I knew this would happen. You didn’t listen to me”. They tend to be omnipercipient; have a perception of everything. They always have an I knew this would happen or I warned you etc tags in their sentences.
Tackle Em: Whenever you get a chance, say, ” I told you so.”
The Relentless Cribber Type
These set of people are ever complaining; never enthusiastic; always sad. They just cannot appreciate the good things in life. These people encourage negative vibes and are an absolute negative influence on you. If you happen to tell them about a nice thing in your life, most often they will say things that will put you off. Like, how long do you think this will last !!!
Tackle Em: Well….Dont talk about the good things in your life to em!
The I am on A high Type
Those people who are always on high spirits(the feeling, silly). Too much is too bad after all. A heavy thud on your back and before you realise that something like a pain was inflicted; you have “Hey man!! Wasssuppppp!!!” Just give them a weary smile and then you have “Oh man!! Cheer up; don’t worry!!” Excuse me Mr, when did I ever say I was worried? And how dare you ask me to cheer up after giving me a hard knock? Get out of my sight!!!
Tackle Em: Give em a dose of their own medicine!
The Everything bad happens to me Type
These are the most boring people one could come across. Always perplexed; as if trying to solve a mighty issue that could save the world. Those who feel they are facing the worse problems in the whole world and no one cares. The ones who would seriously scratch their heads when the others are celebrating the weekend with a beer bash. They tend to behave as if they are the only ones struggling with huge responsibilities while others are partying.
Tackle Em: Take them out or send em to a counselor!
The I am Nice Type
These types are a good laugh. They want to be in the good looks of everyone. They will do anything to please people and so everyone will have a nice opinion. But give them a chance and theyll bitch behind your back.
Tackle Em: Laugh at them!
The Look at me Type
They can also be termed wannabees. Now these guys will do just about anything to get people’s attention. They might wear obnoxious clothes, talk loud, laugh out, scream. Anything that will get people to notice them.
Tackle Em: Stay away or you will be laughed at!
The Agony Aunt Type
This type is everyones best friend. They will be there for you at all times. They will listen to you, help you solve your issues, hear you out and basically be there for you. You will adore them.
Tackle Em: Find more of such types and hold on to the ones you already have!
There are a lot more types. Feel free to let me know and Ill be glad to add them to this list. It really is fun.
So which one are you?!?!And what would I be??!?!
