    I feel that the things I dislike about others are either qualities that I think I had when I was younger (whether I did or not is another question) or qualities that I would never want to possess.

    At one time, yes, because these are the same mistakes I did when I was younger as well.

    But now, I don't have anything I really dislike about myself. Let's be honest, if you don't like something about yourself, then change it, duh. And, that's what I'm doing.

    Do you think that you dislike other people because they display qualities that are qualities you also have?

    That's a great place to be, Jaken. For me, I am constantly working on the things I don't like about myself, whether personality-wise or physically. These things I'm trying to change, mainly personality-wise, I tend to see in others and dislike.

    ooohhh ok now i get it. thanks anduru. no i do not this like things in others because i hate them about me. the things i dislike in most people are not things that i do. i dislike those things because they do not make sense to me. like i dislike effeminate guys and i dislike ignorant and stupid people. i will not say stupid. i dislike when people say or do stupid things.

    I love seeing this play out in real life.
    Just sitting there randomly watching TV and then a commercials come on with hotties and out of nowhere the person next to you hates on the person on tv.
    "Bitch!"
    "What? What I do?!"
    "Not you, that bitch on tv."
    "...what she do?"
    "Nothing, just fuck her and her life. Fucking swimsuit model poser."
    ">.>"

    LOL. So true. BUT, I think that's a bit different. Sounds like the person sitting next to you dislikes the other person because of things/appearances she wished she had. Maybe, that's a different thread I need to start icon_razz.gif

    example: a homophobe hates gays because he has such a problem with gayness in himself

    I think it's more about people hating things in others that they are denying about themselves. You often see people call someone else something negative (two-faced, bitch, disrespectful), but they do that because it has been used on them in the past. They know how hurtful and effective the insult is, so they use it on others. If they project those flaws on others, it acts as a smokescreen, preventing the other from insulting first.

    Understanding the motives of others is important to being a socially competent individual.

    Disagree.

    I don't particularly like when people are ghetto and speak in ebonics, and I certainly don't do that.

    Yes, sometimes. More often it's traits I wish I had that I hate in other people, jealousy really.


    Pet peeves, never. Ugh.

    Agreed in certain ways, typically physically. What I don't like about people's actions is when they lie or are dishonest and I think I'm a pretty honest and forthcoming guy for the most part.

    I never bought into that statement. I would agree in Andru in that they are more qualities I would not like to possess.

    I dislike pussy. Does this mean I have a pussy, but just haven't come to grips with that fact yet? icon_eek.gif

    I believe the things I dislike about others compared to what I dislike about myself vary. I know I don't like some people online where I chat cause they remind me of what the wrong behaviors I've had in the past, and have left. In that way, I can't stand their immaturity, where I myself am mature. Other people I don't like, but are far from anything I've ever been like, and have more than I'll ever have, so it boils down to bitter snippety jealousy; and I really don't respond or post when that hot current runs through my veins. But for the the most part I dislike the people whom may remind me of myself more than I care to admit to myself; and don't catch til it's later than I would like.

    "What you dislike in others is what you dislike in yourself" can be but is not necessarily true.

    However, what might not be but is usually true is that "Nothing is precious save what is yourself in others and others in yourself." ~~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
