These people claim that every problem and misfortune in their life is because of others. They are the victims of others’ wrong deeds.

Victim mentality people are highly pessimists. And take pleasure in blaming people for their own problems.

They just keep talking about how people made their life miserable but never talk about their own mistakes and flaws.

They play the victim card for one of the following reasons, for instance, to grab others attention, to gain sympathy from others, self-pity, as a defensive behavior developed out of childhood trauma, to hide despair and powerlessness, the outcome of repressed feelings especially anger, to cover their mistakes and flaws, and to divert people’s attention to another side, to prove that other people are more fortunate than them.

When you stay in contact with toxic people like victims you start feeling guilty. Because they play the victim card with you and make you feel like you are responsible for problems in their life.      


Pessimists see the negative in everything. They have a negative angle in every situation, every incident, and everything that is happening with them.

They have such a strong aura that if you stay with them for some time, you become like them. Because they put negativity in you and bring you onto their level.

Jealous and Envious people are highly competitive and secretive.

They easily get jealous of your success. This jealous nature forces them to compete with you.

They will do anything to bring you on their level to win over you.

Jealous and envious people hate you secretly or may hold rage against you and when they get a chance they will cheat or betray you.

Your jealous friend is your hidden enemy. You have to find them and remove them from your life.  


Judgmental people judge you on every aspect of life, no matter what it is they always have something to say about it.

They will pass their judgemental opinion without knowing the situation and gravity of the situation.

They will try to put you down. When with them you feel demotivated, anxious, and depressed.

Judgemental people are highly toxic for your mental health and it is better to leave them if you want to stay positive and motivated and achieve something in life.


The term cry baby is used for people who always keep complaining about their life, work, and society. They are always complaining about family members, friends, associates, bosses, work, study, and society.

Though they tell you a spicy story of people they are complaining about, but it’s not always true that they are nice and others are wrong.

They may do it habitually as a defense mechanism to hide their own mistakes. People with emotional perfectionism are most likely to do it. Cry babies’ are light versions of victims.

If you are living or working with such people you will feel sad and guilty thinking that how injustice people doing with them but it is a trap and doesn’t believe them completely.


This is the commonest type of toxic people and each one of us has at least one such person in our life.

Backbiters are people whose behavior is exactly the opposite when with you and without you.

When with you they didn’t stop praising you but as soon as you leave the scene they start talking a bad thing about you. Back bitters are not ideal to make friends with.

Gossipers are the people who transport news from you or about you to other people. they just need a hot topic to gossip with his friends.

They often spread the wrong news like rumors or your uncomfortable secrets just for gossips.


These types of toxic people take great pleasure in self-glorification. They just keep praising themselves all the time.

For instance, they talk about how clever they are in study or their mastery at work or how good they are in life, or how rich they are.

Though their life looks perfect because of over self-glorification, it is not always the case they might have tons of problems and troubles. But because of their habit, you can’t see it.

These people are not that toxic though but they may make you feel less fortunate and frustrated.


Never make a coward your leader. Coward doesn’t have the guts to stand against injustice. That’s why they become a soft target for people to take advantage of.

Cowards are low in confidence and self-esteem. They will first put you in trouble and then run away leaving you alone in the situation. They are less likely to take the risk and do something daring. 


Bulley’s are evil people and always try to harass others. They forcefully try to harm, threaten, abuse and intimidate people single-handedly or in a group.

They often target people who are sensitive and weak and those who get intimidated easily and don’t retaliate.

This behavior is habitual and repetitive. And they are most likely to bully others again and again.

If you know anyone having such antisocial behavior, Don’t approve them in your life.

If you are getting bullied try to fight back or leave the place but don’t tolerate it for long.


Players are a little bit the same as a bully. Only thing is bully manipulate people mostly physically and player manipulates people emotionally.

Sometimes they go to such an extreme level that other people get frustrated and depressed.

Players are narcissists, they don’t value others’ emotions. They just keep exploiting people emotionally for their personal benefit and to satisfy their ego.

If you know someone from the workplace or society who manipulate others. Or you are getting played with, don’t keep in touch with such people. They will leave you frustrated and depressed.


This type of toxic people is not that harmful. They have a weird habit of dragging conversation to one side and not letting other people put their opinion because of which we call them a conversational narcissist.

For instance, while talking with them they will cut you in between and start their own without letting you finish your topic. Conversing with them is always one-sided. Neither they will listen to you nor they will let you talk.

A healthy conversation should be from both sides. And If another person is obsessive about talking it is better to avoid him. Because such conversation leads to nowhere and you feel bored after sometime.


This is also a common type of toxic people. Controlling people are obsessive and often try to micromanage others.

They could be your boss, friend, romantic partner, associates, or family member.

Controlling people want everyone around them to act and behave exactly how they want. For instance, they try to control what to work on, how to work, what to eat, what to wear, or with whom to hang out, etc.

Because of such obsessive behavior, other people often feel suffocated and frustrated.

If you are living or working under controlling people, it is better to let them go otherwise they will make your life hell.


Parasitic people are the person who takes advantage of others or asks things from others but does not give anything back.

They use your things even your money for their own benefit and in return, they do nothing for you.

They stay with you until you keep providing, as soon as you stop doing for them they leave you and find someone else who can provide them. Exactly the same as a parasite.
