23 Selfish Behaviors that Are a Major Turn-Off for Everyone

In our everyday life, we meet many different people. Some may only think about themselves, which can be hard to notice initially. However, it becomes easy to see the signs once you learn what to watch for. An internet survey recently asked, “What is a telltale sign that someone is a selfish person?” Here are the top 23 responses.

No Remorse for Hurting Others

“Let’s not forget how they make you apologize for how you made them feel – when you want to talk about things they did to you.”

Only Their Problems Matter

“They respond how worse their situation is when you’re sharing your problems with them. No trying to help or listening, just trying to draw attention on their side.”

Zero Accountability

“Doesn’t think they’re wrong in the slightest bit. They can’t shoulder any bit of responsibility.”

“look, it’s not my fault that you can’t do anything right.”

Narcissism

“When anything that happens to them, it is the worst thing in the world, and whatever happens to you is not that bad and a waste of time talking about or dealing with.”

Being Rude to Service Industry Employees

“They’re rude to waitstaff or just staff and employees in general. Or if their situational awareness is severely lacking and they don’t seem to have a problem with it.”

Not Acknowledging Others Who Have Helped Them out In the Past

“They don’t remember the times people helped them, but remember clearly all the times they have helped others.”

“It’s easier to remember when you can count the times on your fingers.”

They Bring Nothing to The Potluck but Are First in Line

“What about that time YOU…”

Constantly Interrupting Others

Lack of Interest in Your Life

“If you are in a group and there is one person that is constantly interrupting the middle of what you or anyone else is generally saying to brag about themselves with a ‘one-upper’ story, is generally a precursor to stop associating with them.”

They only Want to Talk About Themselves

“I know many people that will just not shut up about their day an entire call then just leave when you start talking about yours.”

“Bingo. I had a serious defect of doing this. I was mortified when my wife told me about it, and now I make conscious efforts to be a better listener.”

Problems Unrelated to Them Get Turned Into an Issue for Them

“They have that superpower to lead everything back to themselves. Even when you’re actually talking about your own life or a specific problem of yours, they somehow make it that you start talking about them instead without even changing the topic.”

“When every single bad thing that happens to another person gets spun around into their personal problem e.g., I’m really upset because my friend’s family member is going through.”

Conversations Don’t Feel Like Conversations

“They are one-sided talks about what they want, their thoughts, their life, their priorities, etc. When you are able to slip a word in, your words are used as transitions in their dialogue. No matter how you format your words, they all just add to the plot of their story.”

“They talk AT you rather than TO you.”

Not Reciprocating Help that Has Been Given to Them in The Past

“They gladly take any favors you do for them, but when asked if they could reciprocate once, they get defensive and or aggressive and act like you’re the selfish one for daring to expect something in return.”

Always Playing the Victim

“99% of the time, they only place themselves in the victim seat by ignoring all the effort or cost other people have to endure and only focus on what they go through themselves.”

Return the Shopping Cart

“This is my favorite armchair measure of a good person. There is absolutely no benefit to you as the trolley returner, but there is a loss to others if you don’t. There’s also no immediate human association like with how you treat a server or retail employee. Just raw, “Are you thinking about the other guy.”

Having Their Phone Speakers on Maximum Volume in Public

“There is a guy that hangs out in my favorite bar. Doesn’t talk much and stays to himself, but he sits for hours watching videos on his phone with the volume on. It’s the most obnoxious thing ever.”

“For me, it’s people who listen to loud tik tok in public. Especially in relatively silent places.”

They only Message You when They Need a Favor

“Oh man, try being a mechanic. Everyone does this to me.”

Driving Aggressively

“My dad will drive recklessly and loves me and my family’s reactions to the fear it brings. He just laughs. He’s a pretty good driver and drives professionally for a trucking company, but he also drives recklessly and aggressively on purpose sometimes just to get those reactions, and it’s scary.”

“We’ve all seen people weaving in and out of traffic, passing on the right, tailgating, etc. It’s pretty selfish to create dangerous situations for other drivers.”

Believing that Their Children Owe Them Everything

“People who have kids on purpose, and then act like their kids owe them (well above and beyond basic kindness and human respect) for the rest of their lives.”

How They Walk in Public

“Does this one also count for the way people walk around in public? I know a few people that have some kind of tunnel vision when they walk. They don’t look 15 feet ahead or look around to see where other people are at/going. They seem to just be perfectly confident that everybody else around will see them and move out of the way.”

Combative Comparisons

“This is what I call it when someone always has a response to what you are talking about that somehow always seems to “one-up” you. It doesn’t matter what you are talking about. Somehow, they always have a better or worse story that puts yours aside.”

How They Treat Random People

“The way they treat random people vs. the way they treat people they want something from.”

Littering

Did you know that littering in public is unsightly and harmful to the environment and costs taxpayers a lot of money? In the United States alone, it is estimated that local and state governments spend more than $11 billion each year on litter clean-up and prevention programs.
