Nature has a good system for showing us which creatures to be cautious around.
Colors. Red and black? Take a step back. Black and yellow? Probably a bad fellow.
Thorns and spines? Dont pet the porcupine.
Hissing? Uh… No kissing.
And of course anything that has that “LET’S GET READY TO RUUUUMMMMBLE!!!” look in their eyes is better left alone.
This gets a little tougher with humans. Here is my handy guide for (mostly) weeding out some of the crazy. Just like the prickly creatures in nature these people are better observed from a safe distance:
Personal space invaders: If someone routinely stand too close, they will probably try to get too close in other ways.
Loud talkers, dressers, make up wearers: These folks need a never ending supply of attention.
Are you up for that?
Drama queens: They may be fun to watch, but I guarantee you will be sorry if you stick with them for very long.
PPP ( permanent problem people): similar to drama queens in their love of chaos, these people always have problems that stand in their way of living the life they feel they deserve. Go ahead and help them resolve their problem and then stand back and watch how quickly they get another one.
This is by no means a complete list. This is really just the tip of the crazy iceberg.
But you gotta start somewhere.
