We sometimes distinguish our behavior based on what other people can see in us. Most of the times, part of their observations represents at least a percentage of how we deal with ourselves and the people around us. We thought that it is common. However, there are bad habits we never thought we usually do that somehow affect our personality.

The Know-It-All

This type of behavioral problem is familiar to most people that have a superiority complex. They have an attitude of telling or showing people that they are more capable and intellectual. They always assume to be correct and never accept they are wrong. It is their psychological defense to hide their actual feelings and use it as a protection so others won’t talk about their failures in life.

They have an overstated feeling that they are smarter, talented, and better person compared to others and it somehow results in arrogance.

How to deal with it?

Avoid telling people they are wrong. Instead, suggest a solution to the problem. Avoid making a person feel inferior and try to show interest in others and stop focusing on yourself.


The Exaggerator

An exaggerator is a person that has the habit of excessively narrating events with additional stories. It can be considered as lying. This type of behavioral problem creates adverse effects on both psychological and emotional aspects due to the lack of understanding of real events. They sometimes mixed up reality by creating their own stories that push other people to believe and somehow limit them to what they know.

How to deal with it?

Present evidence of factual truth. Avoid narrating stories based on what you heard or based on what you thought is presentable to hear. Be specific at all times and avoid covering the lie with another lie since this can create a much more complicated story.

The Little Attitude

Conflicts can easily arise at any time and to deal with it is crucial. The practice of telling people to ‘shut up’ while explaining their side is a bad behavioral habit. It can limit a person’s sense of precision on the things that they should understand. Rolling your eyes as a form of disagreeing can be familiar, but it leaves an impact on you being a closed-minded person. And walking away in the middle of a losing argument will somehow reflect your upbringing.

How to deal with it?

Listen to what others are trying to explain. Be open about what you don’t understand and avoid interrupting while others are still talking. Be honest about your feelings as much as possible.

The Gossiper

People are naturally born story-teller. A gossiper can have an informal conversation with someone where they typically spread details and information about another person without any confirmation of it being valid. It is a behavioral trait that one can acquire without noticing. Sometimes, it is due to lack of self-confidence and envy. They want others to feel bad about someone instead of being sorry for them.

How to deal with it?

It takes time to deal with this type of behavioral problem. The environment and upbringing can become a huge factor. A person can always divert his attention to other things instead of focusing on getting information about other people’s lives.

Examine yourself and try to be more aware of your habits. If you happen to have some of these behavioral traits, then it is time you should start dealing with it. You never know, you might have these behavioral problems that need evaluation.
