* Talk down to people
If you talk to people as if you believe you are smarter or more important than
they are, you are coming across as arrogant and unfeeling.
* Answer someone's question when they aren't talking to you
If you overhear two people having a conversation, and you but in before the
person they are talking to can even answer the question... that is really rude.
* Brag about what you have or what you have done
I'm not totally against bragging, but if you do it all the time it can get annoying.
So if you're always telling people about how much money you have, how
good you think you look, or every little detail from your last vacation...that
is too much bragging.
I admit gossip is entertaining, but try not to participate in it. Set back and listen
to the person that is gossiping, then you'll know that person is not someone
that you need to be hanging around. Gossiping makes you look untrustworthy.
* Lie all the time
You might get away with your lies for a little while, but soon you'll be figured out.
If you suspect that you're pushing people away it's not too late to change.
* Compliment people.
* If someone doesn't know the answer to a question, then you can answer it.
* Brag sparingly.
* Don't gossip.
* Don't lie...all the time.
