This article is going about this the wrong way. If people influence each other, then rather than avoid toxic people, I should hang around as many toxic people as I can, so that my eminent grace seeps into their being, rendering them shiny and competent.

Also, in response to the article, I recommend Lucian of Samosata's fantastic dialogue "The Parasite, A Demonstration that Sponging is a Profession," in which Lucian (ever the adept at taking the piss out of Roman aristocrats and philosophers) goes about showing that leeching on others is the highest of the arts. It's fucking brilliant:

1. People who eat pufferfish
2. People work at Fukushima Nuclear Plant
3. People who handle toxic waste
4. People who are bitten by venomous animals
5. People who do well in school, play instruments, join clubs, work hard
6. Doctors, teachers, lawyers
7. People who are kind and donate to charity
8. Friends and family
9. You guys
10.Most people in general
What I'm saying here is
Anyone can be toxic.Some of those things on the list seem to contradict one another YOLO vs comfort zone, etc. You can't judge yourself fairly either. Taste the salt water with a grain of sugar. Live life to the certain balanced. Life is a journey not an aspiration

I fit 6 out of 10, and possibly 2 more but not too sure. I must annoy the hell out of people then. Good.

I agree with the list but calling them toxic is just harsh. I don't think people with the characteristics listed here are toxic, actually some of my friends have similar characteristics (I believe we all have someone), still I don't try to avoid them and I'm just fine. For example, a dreamer always needs a non-dreamer/realistic person to guide them and put them on track and the other way around.

As for toxic people, the ones who drag you to a criminal world or drugs - or both - are truly toxic people!

i guess i'm "the leech" since i'm poor. i take what people offer me, i even try to decline the help of other people a lot but they insist.

it makes no sense to me how someone can offer someone help, then call them a leech after totally and consciously helping them willingly. that's like giving someone a pizza willingly and saying "i can't believe they stole my pizza" it makes no fucking sense

now if you want a favor back from someone, you tell them ahead of time so you're not let down. you don't just silently "expect" someone to return your favor unless you fricken talk to them about it

THE ONLY TOXIC PEOPLE ARE THE ONES THAT TELL YOU TO GO KILL YOURSELF OR AFK/FEED AFTER SOMEONE MAKES A MISTAKE

Toxic? Whoever wrote that article leads a very sheltered life if they think most of those are the most toxic types of people out there. Hell, even calling them toxic is stretching it thin.

I don't believe any one person can be "toxic." The way I see it, some people just let themselves be easily affected by others. At the end of the day, everyone makes a choice on what and who affects their lives. Bad decisions on your part are your fault and nobody else's.

Actually, I've known people who fit near half of these. Now those are painful.
