Habits that Detract

Do you ever wonder what turns people off?  Sometimes our unconscious habits make others uncomfortable – maybe even repulsed. And yet, you are likely unaware that all of this is happening.

Here are 15 habits that detract people from seeing the real, wonderful you:

      • Monopolizing a conversation
      • Criticizing
      • Complaining
      • Interrupting Conversations
      • Asking personal questions
      • Bragging
      • Nail biting
      • Picking your teeth
      • Cracking joints
      • Drumming your fingers
      • Coughing without covering your mouth
      • Cursing
      • Loud talking and laughing
      • Breaking in line
      • Bad attitude

Do any of these look familiar? 

Next time you see someone you don’t know very well, watch how they react to your mannerisms.  If they cross their arms, start looking around the room, repeatedly shift in their seat, or turn their body so that it’s easy not to face you, they’re most likely turned off about something.

Has someone done something that turned you off?  What was it?  How did you react?
