Types Of People That You Should Avoid

There are 3 types of people that I tend to avoid as best as possible because they suck me dry of all my positivity, motivation and work ethic:
Blamers, Thinkers, and Settlers.

People who do not take responsibility for their lives. These people are like negativity magnets. Whenever something bad happens to them it is always the world who is at fault. It is never them, they just have a shitty life and they cannot do anything about it. These people are known as “Blamers”, always blaming some other event, person or thing for their misfortune.

These people tend to waste their entire life in the same job, are always stressed, angry or depressed, and never even think about making their life better because they do not think they have that kind of power.

The only thing they talk about is what happened to them. They will talk about all the crazy things that happened to them on the weekend, talk about past events that happened years back that happened to them and will rarely talk about what they did that was amazing.

Avoid these people or run the risk of you becoming their next scapegoat.

People who are too critical and never try new things. The “Thinkers” are people that always try to reason everything out before they ever start doing anything, to such a point where they logically explain it the way that sounds best to them.

Thinkers will take everything they heard and everything that sounds reasonable to tell you why they cannot take responsibility for their lives or make their life better. These people are very dangerous because they are exactly what society wants.

If they hear it often enough, or if they cannot reason anything else, they will not believe it. Period. And it is hard to get them to change their minds as their beliefs are usually very ingrained and firm. Most of those beliefs come from things they have no knowledge of, and of a fear based mindset.

Avoid these people because their logic will sound reasonable and it masks the laziness, apathy and depressed feelings they have inside quite well. Your parents are probably among them as they do not believe you can do it because they do not know about it.

Thinkers are dangerous because they seem to make great points but do so without any actual knowledge of what they are talking about! Meaning all their points are only right by chance.

People who do not seek to improve themselves. These people are just lazy, apathetic and selfish. They will not improve themselves not for lack of power, but just because it is too much work and they would rather give up.

These are known as “Settlers”, as they will always settle for “good enough” and never for anything more. Settlers are better than Blamers because they at least admit that they could do something, but they just choose not to, which is an excuse for living an easy life and not doing the extra work to make their life great, making them the most selfish people on the planet.

Settlers will always find excuses not to try and to avoid going for something unknown. This comes from a fear that they may not be good enough, may not make it, or will lack the motivation. All of that comes from the belief that they are not good enough.

Avoid these people or help them, but do not get sucked into their own self-pity that they portray. This mix of selfishness and low self-confidence is a very dangerous mixture that is like a vortex that sucks you in. Avoid them if you can!


  1. Yes, avoid people who keep on blaming others for their miseries. People who are always critical but offer no solution are also part of the problem.

  2. Blamers are the worst. Pessimists are just as bad. Hotheads too. I think I can tolerate "thinkers" and "settlers" as long as they do their job right.

  3. Living in this world, what kind of people also got.. It's not easy to avoid, but try our best not to mix with negative ppl..

  4. I cannot agree more! You really don't need these people in your life, they'll hinder your personal growth and keep you from opportunities

  5. Oh wow... I think I'm a thinker at times. While I agree with you that you should avoid blamers and settlers, thinker sometimes help bring back a group back to earth with realistic problems?

  6. Total agree, people who do not seek to improve themselves and always critic on others are those I should stay far far away.

  7. Ugh! So true. People will complain about their situation and try NOTHING NEW to help and fix it. Blows my mind. Avoid at all costs!

  8. I know so many people who hate to be in the wrong and fail to take responsibility for their actions. It is always another persons fault.

  9. Very good observations on the human conditions. Negativity is like a toxic drug.some people are addicted to it. AVOID negative people at all times..just walk away.

  10. I work in healthcare and those that don't take responsibility for their own lives and medications, but blame it on everyone else, really annoy me. People who moan all the time always make everyone else feel bad too. Everyone needs to moan and rant sometimes, but not 24/7.

  11. I agree with you, I love reading this post and a good tips to avoid the types of people

  12. This post is the bomb!!! Thank you for writing what I was too afraid to write. I had to rid myself of all three over the last 4 years... YES!
