25 Types Of Toxic People You Don't Need In Your Life

The Naysayer

The Naysayer

Always pessimistic and always telling you that you probably can't do something. Perhaps it's because they themselves are afraid of failure. Either way, they suck!

The Liar

The Liar

Because life is tough enough without some idiot making it even more difficult by leading you to believe untruths.



The Gossiper

The Gossiper

The problem with someone being so in to your life that they can't help but talk about it is perhaps they don't have a satisfying one of their own, and it usually results in things that simply are not true.

The Show Off

The Show Off

This person is very quick to show everybody how good they are at something, or how good looking they are, etc. It's usually masking something else and often detracts from anything "real".



The Slacker

The Slacker

It is true that we are influenced by the people with whom we choose to spend our time, and so it makes no sense to be around lazy people when we want the most out of life.

The Energy Sponge

The Energy Sponge

Some people are just so damn needy! It's okay to be there for your friends but when you are forced to allot so much of your time to cater to the precious needs of someone, perhaps you'd be better off without them....



The Hater

The Hater

There's always that one person who is so insecure that they just hate on everything. Somehow the hating helps them feel better about themselves, but it sure doesn't help you!

The Jealous Type

The Jealous Type

It's impossible to be a true friend of someone who is always jealous. You'll end up feeling bad about your own accomplishments!



The Victim

The Victim

Let's be honest, this is a type of person that we all know, but are we obligated to put up with it or simply pull the plug when they refuse to be anything but a victim? Enough is enough, right?

The Needy Person

The Needy Person

They're always asking so much of your time and attention! Don't they know it's exhausting?!



The Arrogant Person

The Arrogant Person

There is almost nothing worse in this world (except for maybe like, bowel cancer or something) than someone who is arrogant (and we're not suggesting The Donald is always arrogant but that look in this photo..!!).

These people don't understand that you can be confident without being arrogant to go with it.

The Egoist

The Egoist

Perhaps we could have included another Donald Trump photo here...

These people are far more interested in themselves than you.



The Manipulator

The Manipulator

The manipulator is a wolf in sheep's clothing and is trying to work you in order to get what they want. They are often the hardest to spot and capable of doing the most damage.

Control Freak

Control Freak

We all know what knowing a control freak feels like but sometimes it can be hard to separate yourself from them because you don't want to be rude or offend them. But how else will they know?!



The Bully

The Bully

Once you've left the playground, it doesn't necessarily mean you've had your last dealings with bullies. Again, this behavior is usually an effort to mask an insecurity of their own but you are the one who suffers most.

The Pretender

The Pretender

This type of person is always trying to convince you (and themselves) that they are someone they are clearly not. It's almost impossible to trust someone like that.



The Routine Person

The Routine Person

You know that person who goes to work, then goes home... they watch the same boring TV shows all the time and never do anything out of the ordinary. How very, very soul-suckingly boring!

The Unreliable Person

The Unreliable Person

This is one of the most frustrating types of people to be friends with. If they prove to be this way on more than one or two occasions, then perhaps the only way they are going to learn is by you ditching them.



The Moody Person

The Moody Person

Yes, "life is like a box of chocolates" but sometimes it would be nice to know what you're going to get. It's hard having someone in your life who is happy one minute and sad the next. Sure, they may have legit "emotional issues" but how long do you need to put up with it?

The Coward

The Coward

This is a case of having someone in your life who is always afraid to be better than the person they are today. The longer you spend with them, the more like them you will become.



The Propagandist

The Propagandist

They're always taking a situation and making it out to be in favor of their cause or view. It sucks hugely to be friends with this type of person!

The Person Who's Always Bored

The Person Who's Always Bored

You know those people who actually update their Facebook status to let everyone know that they're bored? Seriously, with all the things to do in life and the minimal time in which to tick those boxes, how can anybody ever really get bored?!



The Touchy Person

The Touchy Person

Yes, this is a picture of a baby but you know the type.... That person who will fly off the proverbial handle when something dares challenge their delicate sensibilities! What's the point of having someone like this in your life when you're afraid to be honest?

The Person Who's Always Arguing

The Person Who's Always Arguing

This type of person possibly has a few of the other traits we've already mentioned. They are seemingly never happy for long and always looking for a reason to get in to a debate. Presumably, they have some insecurities to deal with but unfortunately, they don't seem to be going about that in a productive fashion.



The Cynic

The Cynic

We have absolutely no problem with a bit of black humor and, quite frankly, sarcasm is not the lowest form of wit as the cliche might have you believe (because we all know that puns take the cake), it's just that those people who are always cynical are kind of a drag. In fact, they suck!
