wait until you see people who are many of these types at once
To think that any of us have none of this...
I think we all have tendencies towards these things, but the sign of great character is your ability to check yourself and be humbled.
I should know, I have incredible character.
Because I'm in control of my life.
Did you hear about Karen? Her life is falling apart!
I make everyone spend so much time with me, doing whatever I want. I think they love hanging out with great people like me, because I can teach them things about life.
Sometimes they catch me fudging the truth a bit about myself, but that's just how it looks when people misunderstand greatness. What I'm saying is still basically true, though.
It's just not fair that other people get so much more recognition when I'm over here doing twice as much with ten times as many people against me. Papers should be writing about me, not them!
You had me in the first half
It's a difference between wanting to try to be better and being complacent in being a toxic person/energy vampire. I had a few ex-friends who were very happy being terrible, insufferable people to be around who brought everybody else around them down. One girl would say "I am going to absorb you" before she'd like randomly slap people or steal their stuff, cause drama for them in their personal lives, etc. She almost got me beaten up by my ex-boyfriend's girlfriend because she stole my phone and texted him all manner of things. She also hit an alarming number of children. Another ex-friend would try and sexually assault people because they loved the feeling of having people upset with them, and would run their nails across the chalkboards at the school and scream as loud and high-pitched as they could constantly. They were so happy with the results of their terrible work, too.
My mom is Narcissist, Controller, Emergency Vampire and has a small side of Drama Magnet.
I'm very happy I'm making progress in therapy and learning to set boundaries...
LMAO omg I did not notice this
Yeah that's the noise I might set my phone to make when she's calling actually
Their name is Legion for they are many
Unexpected Red Dwarf. Surely there is a sub for this?
By your powers combined..
I have, on Reddit lol. I don't like arguing with people at all. I have learned when/where it's "safe" to share an opinion that isn't always super popular. I am all for a sincere discussion but I believe that is extremely rare online and in-person these days.
I love interacting with people who aren't out to be several of those at once. I wish people remembered you don't have to agree with anyone and you certainly don't need to be hateful if you don't :)
Been there. This "friend" checked all those boxes. It took me a long time to realize it, but needless to say we're no longer friends. To be honest we were never friends, as I was nothing more than a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen their drama, etc.
Check your friends every once in a while. Cutting cancer out of your life might suck at first, but you'll eventually be happy you did.
There's even a name for them: The Ex
That's the ultimate jerk, and I am one of them.
Just what I was thinking!!!
Just thought about my so... yikes.
the Twitter enjoyer
If you don’t watch What We Do in The Shadows on FX, do yourself a favor and lookup the energy vampire and emotional vampire scenes.
I am glad we're starting to see WWDITS references in the wild now. That show needs to go on for years
I feel like I'm experiencing the Baader-Meinhoff phenomenon now because I'm watching that show and that was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw "energy vampire".
Even real vamps are scared of those
Truly narcissistic people are all of these.
Came here to say this. They are all facets of the same personality dissorder.
Yeah I read this and my narcissistic mother checks every single one of these boxes
You guys talking about having teenager kids right?
The energy vampire
The energy vampire
aka Colin Robinson
Energy Vampire... E...V
I am always scared I am one of them and dont notice
In fact, everyone in this thread has toxic traits as portrayed in this media. It's easy to think its black and white, but nothing ever is. I tell white lies without thinking. I strongly believe I am better than what I actually am on a routine basis. I fucking love hearing about drama.
Does that make me a toxic person? No. I just have some microtendencies that can be toxic. Everyone does and that's okay.
We can, have, and do all exhibit these traits in some form.
The very fact that you are scared that you are one of these people is a good indicator that you are not. If you did become aware that you might have treated someone badly you would be shocked and you would attempt to change.
The people that truly are these types are constantly presented with their failings / bad behaviour and reject them. They will blame other people, you, or some other event. And, make no REAL attempt to change their behaviour, other than platitudes, or rectify the problems they've caused.
If you are constantly trying to be a better person today than you were yesterday, there is no need to worry.
Hi always scared I am one of them and dont notice, I'm Dad! :)
My mother is literally all of these types. I'm so glad I cut her out of my life. I regret to admit I possess a couple of these traits as well, and work hard to eliminate them.
Every single one of us possesses these... It's how you use them though that makes the person.
True. The most important thing is the self awareness that we possess these things. Toxic people don't have that self awareness.
Mine too, it’s been seven years since I spoke to her and she’s just entered hospice. It’s almost over.
The pain will probably still linger after she's gone. I hope you're taking care of yourself above all else.
Thank you kind stranger. I grieved her loss many years ago, now I’m just trying to support my father and sister.
You're welcome, friend! I know all too well how hard it is to grieve over someone who is actually still alive. It's almost worse than grieving someone who has passed. Good for you for supporting others in need. We all need more of that.
Congratulations! It's the hardest one to make!
Luckily, I only have to worry about narcissistic behavior. I say "I" a lot during conversations due to a lot of life experience at my young age and it makes me hyper paranoid about it (thankfully It's just unnecessary paranoia and I don't really have any of the other tendencies of a narcissist). I try to counter this by making sure I bring the conversation back around to the individual I'm speaking to. So, just keep practicing to keep your tendencies low but don't expect them to ever go away completely. You can do it!
My mother is all of these as well. Haven’t talked to her in over a year and life has never been better!
I think we all do. To different degrees, in different amounts, and at different points in our lives.
The Low Self-Esteem-er: When you are secretly terrified you are all of them
So I was dating a Green eyed, narcissistic, controlling energy vampire. Explains a lot
Wow, you only need Drama magnet and Compulsive liar and you have full set completed
Cove316 is the Drama Magnet. Hence the ex-project.
Wow I am all of them 🥺
Ok I can try that
I'm 2 and 5
What’s the name for someone who is all of these?
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Had the displeasure of knowing someone who perfectly fit all of these categories
My wife? LOL
Why you still around then?
Divorce exists, you know.

Everyone here complaining bout someone in their life... but is anyone else here aware they have one or more of these traits?
Ironically honestly, I'm a bit of a compulsive liar. I've been working to stop and I have it mostly under control, but I have slips every now and then when something's really stressing me out. It's difficult to break toxic behavior when you've been at it your whole life and it's really hard to ask for help when you feel like you'll be instantly ostracized for it.
Im normaly not really any of them but when i start thinking about myself i become really narcisistic have to remember that im not as great as i think i am
Bruh it took until I saw this to confirm something
I feel like I might be a controller sometimes
I work with someone who is all of these.
Hey,hey! Stop listing my exes!
I’m all of these and none of these at the same time
Ex-Republican here. It's it me, or does Donald Trump encompass at least five of these types?
Criticizes you? What do you mean by that. Criticizes your work, your personal life, you personally? Criticism isn't always a bad thing, in fact it's often a good thing.
My wife does this thing where she makes me feel like it’s never good enough. For example, when I’m doing the dishes, it’s too loud and will wake the kids. Cooking, it’s never on time then we eat late. Cleaning/laundry, the clothes aren’t folded correctly and everything is not in it’s place. Sleeping, I breath loudly or move, then I’m disturbing her. It’s a constant battle to just exist, everything irritates her. So yes, constructive criticism is a good thing but too much is overwhelming.
I tell white lies a lot to avoid the fights when things don’t go according to plan. Staying late at work, going to the gym, grabbing a drink with a co worker - all things I lie about to avoid the fight. Blows up in my face sometimes for sure but not every time.
I seem to be in a relationship with a Controller, how can I address the situation without causing the inevitable drama?
Yeah it’s not unbearable tbh, just not pleasant. I often call her out on it, but it doesn’t really go through when you’re already arguing. It often makes me not want to do anything in the house, like cleaning or moving things bc there’s always something wrong and she redoes everything, so there’s no point
It’s hilariously ironic to see people complain about other people on this post 😂😂😂
The green eyed lmao.... more like modern progressive/socialist college student.
Why are all the cartoon faces female?
Seems a somewhat unbalanced representation.
Edit: just saw a comment saying three are men. Really doesn’t look like it to me 🤷♀️
I dont know if i am a narcisist or if its still just a joke at this point
I am an energy vampire raised by a compulsive liar. My ex gf is the green eyed and it seems everyone I meet these days is narcissistic.
Damn my mama was a slam dunk then
If I'm any of them it would be the compulsive liar. I absolutely have a habit of telling "little white lies" to smooth situations where I'm either uncomfortable or just blatantly not paying attention. I also have a tendency to push people in the direction I feel is best.
Soo.... Everyone in the comments has been in a relationship with the Voltron version of all these personalities combined into one person.
i think im a narcissist
#1 is Karen for sure
Sweet, I’m both a controller and an energy vampire.
My ex was "the green eyed". But the fun thing is that she actually is green eyed. Hah.
You forgot The amalgam, all of the above.
My six other personalities
I think most of these would fit into narcissism pretty well.
The green eyed cought my eyes...
I Truly believe there s something about eye color and mood or personality or whatever you like to call it.
Think about iridology (or Iriscopy)...
I have the same thoughts about Brown eyed People... I wonder where this feelings come from.. is'there something fundamentally different between different eye colors... ? Anyone can enlighten me?
For those who cought the green eyes also, and all your remarks... Whats your eye color.... And euhm, are you not just doing the same flame... Minimising People for...
I would like to see the inverse image next to this;
The selfless, the enabler, the zen, the uplifter, the comfy-in-their-shoes, the empathic
Just suggestions, but would be interesting to see both sides of this coin
Wow, I'm type 2, 3 and 4. Nice to know
Did anyone else breathe a sigh of relief when they didn’t exert any of these symptoms? XD
My old boss was capable of being all of these and more. One of them being the type that spits at you and says things like "I'll kick your head out of your ass (?)" And "are you sick of being a poof your whole life?" Very toxic, terrible human.
Ok but what kind of conditioner are these toxic people using bc that shine
Why are all of these people ugly
Why did the creator of this make literally every one of them a woman
I feel like I am all of these. It only makes me want to isolate to prevent more damage. I am convinced I will never be able to have a family because of it.
I'm scared I might be The Drama Magnet and The Green Eyed.....
At least the drama magnet is good-looking. ;-)
Tag yourself! I'm the controller or the drama magnet
The amalgamation, all of them in one 💀
I am absolutely a controller and have been all my life. I've been working very hard at changing that with my SO but so far I'm only at a stage where I can realise that I am being controlling and stop and apologise. Would be nice to get to a point where "controlling" isn't my default mode.
I never heard of the concept of an energy vampire until now. So I googled it and I am still not sure if this is a joke or not.
*cries in green eyes*
The drama magnet also constantly says how she hates drama.
This is just narcissist behaviour. All of them.
Add them all up and you get my ex. Even thinking about her cranks my anxiety to 11
Statistically there's probably people who upvoted this that are the toxic examples but unaware of it.
By your powers combine....
Aaaand I know someone who embodies all six! Yay me!
My mom checks off some of these
Honestly I love WWDITS's energy vampires, they're like the nicer version of my ex-best friend. Sometimes I see them doing stuff that takes so much work for a little negative energy and I just want to shout at the TV that there are easier ways to make people miserable, though, lol. Like I'm surprised none of them have gotten a chalkboard and scratched their nails across it or something yet lol. That was a go to for several of the "real" energy vampires I've met.
All of the above.... take me out...please... ill buy the bullet.
My ex was all of these. Was she like the final boss fight or something?
This is just a guide of everyone that surrounds me at all times. Are you saying people who don't fit in this exists?
This chart literally makes the narcissist the best person to be.
Are these types all exclusive to women? Just curious if the female faces are a coincidence or represent something from a woman's point of view.
im mildly upset that the green eyed has green hair not eyes
My birth giver is actually all 6 of them though.
Oh shit I'm a controller now that I think about it. I will see how I can fix this
Holy shit I’m like 4 of these
Sounds like a great dinner party
All of these traits are part of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder
And the winner, for crystallising ALL 5 traits is:
DONALD J. TRUMP
My aunt is every single one of them
I'm literally 5/6 of these. Starting to lose hope.
My ex is 5/6.
Every 12 year old falls into at least one of this categories, change my mind
Some amount of bad traits is fine, guys. Well, common, at least. It's about preventing them from growing out of proportion.
Why are they all women
wow, how is it that my wife is all 6 of these.
They all fit the sociopath spectrum
Why I am I seeing a list of my exes over here?
The green eyed it's like any hardcore feminist and SJW
I could be specific but i'm lazy so naaa. I'm going for a nap 😊
Why are all these"toxic people" women?
Question 2: why is the definition of sociopathy under the word "narcissist"?
3 are women and 3 are men.
And that is the correct definition of narcissism. NPD and ASPD have a lot of the same characteristics and similar symptoms such as lack of empathy and inflated view of self.
Which are the women and which are the men? Are you guiding yourself by the short hair? I have short hair and I am not a man... Maybe they are all men in the drawing XD
I asked about it because it was not what I learned in college. But thank you for clarifying.
Mkay...so I'm 3 out of 6. Jackpot!
My dad is a controller and green eyed. Period.
You may want to clarify this a little. Do you mean all women are toxic, or only pictures of women are being used to describe toxic traits?
? I see 3 male looking faces there.
The original artist identifies as She/Her.
Of course they do. Its exactly that kind of drivel.
90% of the comments are obvious narcissists:
"I know smo / my ex / my stupid mom -> who checks all of these issues at once. haha"
They see so many issues in others (cuz they're so perfect) (also, they usually write 'haha' a lot)
PS: low key trolling / jk, so don't take it too cerials you maniacs
Caman, can't have a solid opinion? It's not a surprise that social and alike just breeds the types of behaviors that are listed. And what's up with "low key, jk", who you scared of? Downvotes?
No no no, it's because I noticed there's more and more susceptible people and I'm always careful not to trigger them, cuz when they backfire it quickly gets ugly for litterally nothing.
I mean don't tell me you've not noticed it as well.
Backfire? You mean comments? You can just ignor them... Unless someone have at least a glimpse of common sense and respect for decision there will be no ugly. The fact that you practically "scared" of things getting out of hand makes you vulnerable to the ideas that you go against. After all that's the reason why people have these one dimensional concepts that they so ruthelessly defending.
Kind of having an epiphany about myself right there. Not sayin I'm an enabler, but you're right, people's basic instinct drives them to feel fear and exploit it. Gosh do I have to fix this before I have kids.
Ok this is very random but I can’t find any place to talk about this. I don’t know if I’ve ever interacted with a toxic person irl, but I’ve seen a lot of them online. Although I’m not sure if I’m getting the term “toxic people” right.
I’m talking about people who, after you made a post you put a huge effort into, trying to spread positive energy because you have so much left and you need to put it somewhere, will downvote it without even reading (literally 1 second after you published it) and comment about what a horrible person you are.
I know, oddly specific, I shouldn’t let my feelings out on you people, I just wanted to share this because I’m sad. I was so full of positive energy and now I’m just crying. I don’t understand how I can make a post and feel so happy and the next thing I know is a stranger says I’m horrible and I’m crying. I appear to be too vulnerable to spend time on the internet.
