A friend of mine once told me: “I am annoyed by people who smack their tongues during a conversation and say“ shorter ”through each word. I thought I was not paying attention to it. But I don’t like it when people look over their shoulders to see my unfinished thoughts.
It turns out that everyone has their own “irritants”. And so I wondered if there were any common bad habits that annoy most people. We will write them and people will know about them.
So, we have identified 10 such “bad” habits and are ready to share them. And also to understand how psychologists explain this behavior.
Here are the 10 most popular annoying habits of people.
1. Inability to use perfume
This bad habit is especially annoying for those people who have an excellent sense of smell. Probably, each of us at least once in our life came across such a person who, before leaving the house, seems to have poured a whole bottle of perfume on himself.
If such a “fragrant collision” is short-lived and happened, for example, in public transport, then there is nothing left to do but be patient.
But what if a perfume lover works with you in the same office? Of course, it is worth asking a colleague as politely as possible to reduce the amount of perfume used.
By the way, recently, scientists from Israel came to the conclusion that people who are depressed are prone to excess in the use of fragrances. This is due to the fact that the sensitivity of their olfactory receptors decreases, and they are simply unable to fully hear the aroma.
2. Talking while eating
The interlocutor, from whose mouth crumbs fall out, a chomping sound is heard, is unlikely to be pleasant to anyone. But there are people who are very fond of talking with a full mouth and do not think that they are doing something wrong.
If a person has not previously noted any abnormalities in the psyche, then the habit of talking while eating is an elementary bad manners.
3. Violate “personal space”
Have you met a person who, during a conversation with you, tries to stand up to you almost end-to-end and constantly touches you? Terribly annoying, isn’t it?

In fact, such an annoying habit may indicate not only bad manners, but also damage to the amygdala. It is it that is responsible for the lack of understanding about “personal space”.
So that your interlocutor or you yourself do not feel discomfort, try to keep at least 1 meter from each other.
4. Loud conversation in public transport
It doesn’t matter if you are talking with a fellow traveler or on the phone – a loud conversation on public transport is a manifestation of disrespect for others.
People can drive tired from work or feel bad and unnecessary loud noises will naturally irritate them. And the most annoying thing is that you have to listen to your outpouring the whole trip, which can last more than one hour.
5. The habit of showing off
Have you noticed how you get tired of the person who constantly talks about himself and his life? At the same time, it is obvious that he greatly embellishes his narrative.
Most often people who suffer from it, it is very important to be better than others. An attempt to prove your importance and superiority over others can be both a manifestation of bad manners and a psychological problem.
6. Chewing gum
Many people consider one of the most annoying habits of people – constant chewing, “blowing bubbles”, clicking, especially during a conversation. This is considered a clear sign of disrespect for the interlocutor.
7. Leave dirty dishes behind
Few of us are happy to wash dishes, especially if there are a lot of them. Regardless, we still try to clean up after eating and cooking.
But there are individuals who deliberately leave a piece of food in the common dish, just not to wash it. Many of us have come across such people not only at home, but also at work.
This annoying habit of many people is most often called ordinary laziness in everyday life.
But more recently, American scientists have put forward the theory that the dislike of washing dishes may have physiological roots. They believe that serotonin, released in large quantities in the body after meals, has a calming effect on the brain. Therefore, after eating, we want to take a nap, and not fiddle with dirty dishes.
8. The habit of sending “letters of happiness”
If you do not have friends and relatives who constantly want to “make you happy” with a “magic” message, then you are very lucky!
Haven’t you heard that you can become rich, successful, happy without straining? Enough:
- “If you send this message to 10 friends, then tomorrow you will be incredibly rich!”
- “During this day, you will meet the man of your dreams! Only…”.
- “72 hours after you forward this magic letter 100/500 to friends and family, you will be absolutely happy!”
There are many options, the goal is one – to do you good. Such messages are very annoying, as they not only distract from work or household chores, but also “clog up” messengers.
9. Perform hygiene procedures in public
What could be more disgusting to observe how a completely outsider, being in a public place (metro, office, train, etc.), suddenly decides that he urgently needs to perform self-care procedures:
- trim your nails;
- squeeze out a pimple;
- blow your nose, etc.
Many people are also annoyed when women fix their makeup in front of everyone. If you suddenly feel like doing this, use the restroom. Treat others with respect.
10. The habit of pushing in the back
It doesn’t matter where, when boarding or exiting public transport, or in line, you might find someone pushing you in the back. Why is he doing this? It is unlikely that he himself knows the answer to this question.
The list of annoying habits of people can be much larger, since we are all different and what one person perceives as the norm, another can “get mad”. Remember that we live in a society and try to treat others with respect!
