Negative character traits: a list of negative characteristics of a person

Anger is a destructive trait

A trait such as anger is the personification of several qualities at once:

  • irritability;
  • dissatisfaction;
  • contradiction in worldview and oneself;
  • selfishness.

Is a physical state characterized by an emotional structure in the brain. This is a reaction to a situation that prevents the satisfaction of a need. The manifestation of anger is often associated with psychological trauma. It all depends on the situation; sometimes the worst trait hinders the personality or, on the contrary, mobilizes opportunities. Often an angry person crosses boundaries, allowing himself to throw out negativity.

Anger is one of the worst qualities

The main problem is that anger tends to accumulate. Upon reaching a large volume, it turns into such a quality as aggression, which often spills out with destructive consequences. Hatred should not be confused with anger; these are different traits, but they have common causes of origin. It is possible, even necessary, to get rid of anger, especially when there are fewer and fewer people around who want to communicate. It is important to find the reason for the manifestation of this trait and work on yourself.

Classification of personality traits

Human personality is studied taking into account innate and acquired qualities .

Mental properties are understood as stable phenomena that influence activity and characterize a person from a psychological and social perspective.

Basic properties : temperament, character, orientation, abilities.

Temperament is a set of individual personality characteristics associated with dynamic aspects, a type of nervous activity. It is the basis for character development.

The term was first introduced by Hippocrates. Temperament was divided into 4 types. In our time, the turning point was I. P. Pavlov’s study of the types of the nervous system, of which four were also described.

Negative traits of temperaments:

  • choleric – mobile, unbalanced, vindictive, impatient, impulsive, capable of aggression;
  • sanguine person - hasty, hyperactive, fickle, overestimates himself, suffers from mood swings;
  • phlegmatic - reacts poorly to external stimuli, has difficulty adapting, does not show initiative, does not communicate well with people;
  • melancholic – indecisive, insecure, pessimistic, vulnerable, prone to depression.

Temperament is an innate personality trait.

Character is acquired traits, permanent mental properties that determine the characteristics of a person’s behavior and his relationship with people and the surrounding reality.

Direction is a system of motivations, motives, that is, what a person wants, what he strives for, attitudes. It is formed in the process of education, socially conditioned.

Abilities are personality properties that are conditions for the successful implementation of a specific type of activity.

Envy is your own dissatisfaction

One of the worst qualities, causing harm to the one whom a person envies, and to himself. The negativity of an envious person can destroy the life of another. Anyone who envy destroys himself from the inside, ceases to develop as a person, to live normally, and to strive for the best. It is much wiser to work on yourself in order to get what you don’t have, than to simply envy, while standing still, further reinforcing the most negative character trait.

Envy is a big flaw

An envious person does not know how to appreciate, love what he has, enjoy life, achievements, qualities. He constantly compares his life with someone else’s, compares the values ​​that he and others have. It always seems to him that everything is better for others, he ceases to be cheerful, and is unable to soberly evaluate the merits, both his own and those of others. Communicating and living with such people often leads to discord, quarrels and even illness. It has been proven that over the years, envy gradually passes and such bad quality disappears. But the main reason for the envious trait lies in childhood.

Your actions when applying for a job

If you decide to change jobs, then write a resume, then forward it to the new employer. For a resume, it is important not only to describe positive character traits, but also negative ones. Sometimes the employer overlooks your merits and focuses on the “weaknesses” column.

He understands that you will properly describe moral and business qualities, but never negative ones.

How to proceed? It is necessary to write a resume taking into account the future place of work. Sometimes negative characteristics are more suitable for a given job than good qualities.

  1. Therefore, carefully study the requirements for your new job.
  2. Write only high-quality resumes. If you write a low-quality resume, you may not get a response.
  3. If they don’t answer, ask why there is no answer, but don’t bother with calls.
  4. Be sure to answer the survey questions.
  5. The employer welcomes the description of the weaknesses of the future employee, understanding that no one is perfect. If a person notes weaknesses, it means he is ready to correct them.
  6. If you need to indicate negative qualities, then you need to do it very competently.

Correct writing of a resume

Keep it business casual. Present the information briefly, clearly, and understandably. During the interview, clarify each point if asked.

  • Don’t ignore the “shortcomings” item so as not to come across as a smug person. Otherwise, the employer will think that you have inflated self-esteem and that is the only reason why they can refuse you without inviting you for an interview.
  • If an employee is self-critical, then the employer will treat him better than a person without shortcomings.
  • It is worth saying when you meet that you are struggling with your shortcomings and there are already successes.
  • Don’t write that you are a workaholic, self-critical, or anything like that.
  • Always write that if you set a goal, you achieve it. Give an example. If there are obstacles on the way, then you overcome them, also give an example.
  • Point out that you are responsible and teachable.

Arrogance - false confidence in superiority

It is very difficult to communicate and work with such people. An arrogant person always puts himself above others, treats them with disdain and arrogance, and ultimately suffers himself. Friends and relatives often turn away from arrogant people. It is unbearable to be in the company of someone who constantly belittles, does not want to see their merits and skills in others, puts himself on the first step, without even having a small part of the merits of his interlocutor.

Arrogance is false grandeur

Such behavior hides complexes that were laid down a long time ago. The personality hides its insecurity and inability under non-existent greatness. All this in order to appear better to others. Arrogance contradicts the normal awareness of one’s abilities, perception of others, and interaction with them. This trait is one of the most negative; it only brings disappointment to others when communicating with such an interlocutor.

Human qualities: list, positive

Psychologists include the following positive qualities:

kindness - the desire to benefit others, make their lives better, help, assist;

compassion - the ability to sympathize with others;

optimism, cheerfulness - the ability to find good in everything, believe in the best, not despair under any circumstances;

sensitivity - the ability to be attentive to another person, to feel him;

tolerance – respectful attitude towards others, their characteristics and interests;

responsibility – the ability to fulfill one’s obligations and keep one’s word;

persistence – the ability to achieve one’s own goals;

determination - the ability to set goals and go towards them without giving up;

modesty - an adequate attitude towards one’s personality, lack of desire to stick oneself out;

gratitude - the ability to say thank you for everything you receive from life and from people;

willpower – the ability to resist temptations;

organization – the ability to complete everything on time, find optimal solutions to problems;

humility is the ability to accept the inevitable, to draw useful conclusions from any, even the most unpleasant, situations.

This is not a complete list of virtues. All of the listed traits are among the most important and necessary for the happiness of a person and those around him.

Cruelty - open hatred

People with this character trait, unfortunately, can take any action, even the worst. Often cruelty begins to manifest itself in childhood, where the child takes it out on animals, and as an adult redirects his quality to people. From a very early age, parents can prevent this by explaining to their child that hurting others is unacceptable. If a cruel person has a family, he will certainly show his worst qualities in it; children will take a bad example from their parent, becoming cruel.

A cruel person not only causes physical pain, violence, humiliates, insults others morally, and can set them up. As a result, he takes pleasure in the suffering of the victim. It is extremely important to understand that these actions are destructive and in reality do not bring anything good. It is much more important to improve yourself, to stop being angry and offended. Cruelty reflects:

  • own dissatisfaction;
  • dissatisfaction with oneself;
  • inability to cope with emotions, grievances;

Cruelty is a negative attitude towards the surrounding world.
A cruel person blames those around him for all his troubles, bringing them suffering. Others perceive him as strong, powerful, domineering, they are afraid, they avoid him. It is immediately clear that it is difficult for a cruel person to communicate with loved ones; he has few or no friends. The most terrible consequence of cruelty is revenge for the grievances received. It can manifest itself in a variety of methods, ranging from prolonged, gradual bullying to physical violence. Such a person, who is possessed by cruelty, often simply loses his mind. You can get rid of this, sometimes the process takes a lot of time, involves working on yourself, working with specialists whose goal is to convey the negative of this quality.

Human dignity

The importance of a person's virtues depends on the area of ​​life. In a certain situation, different qualities are valued. They are divided into:

  • personal;
  • professional;
  • social.


Optimism is one of the personal virtues of a person. It’s easier to live with him if you see only positive things in life. Relaxation maintains peace of mind, unlike a person who has been accumulating grievances for years. Openness to new people and knowledge makes a person happy. A peace-loving person builds relationships with others more easily than a conflict-loving person.


The group of professional characteristics includes the following qualities: initiative, discipline, hard work, efficiency. As well as responsibility, attentiveness, accuracy, punctuality. Any employer will like them, so it’s important to list them on your resume (if they really are inherent to the person). A person who puts a lot of effort into doing quality work will easily cope with the task. Perseverance and curiosity will lead to a positive result even faster. In creative work, creativity is also important.

READ What is envy, the reasons for its occurrence and ways to get rid of it


Any person appreciates a friendly attitude. It will make a good impression on others. Communication skills will allow you to find an approach to people around you. Society values ​​people who sincerely show interest in someone's problem and participate in solving it.

Deceit is the success of the false ego

A clear manifestation of one’s own insecurity, a desire to impress others, even if this means using a lie. A deceitful person comes up with false information, presenting it as reality. The consequences are very sad: distrust of others, loneliness, loss of work, because few forgive lies. If a person constantly lies, over time he himself will become entangled in lies and will certainly be exposed.

Deceit - self-betrayal

Often, a liar simply does not want to, does not know how to perceive reality, and deliberately creates a distorted image of himself, events and facts among others in order to achieve a selfish goal and prevent the negative consequences of his deed.

Selfishness is love only for oneself

An egoist is driven only by personal gain; he always thinks only about himself, his well-being. You cannot expect responsiveness, mutual assistance, or participation in business for the benefit of others from such people. An egoist will not do what is unprofitable for him. It is worth remembering one thing: an egoist is doomed to loneliness; there will never be anyone around him who wants to help, because he himself is not capable of this. It is very difficult to live and work with such people, they do not know how to sacrifice, they think only about themselves, they strive for a comfortable life, they extol their own desires above those of others. Outside opinions and criticism are unimportant for them. Decisions are made only based on one’s own desires and goals.

Selfishness - only for your loved one

The egoist loves himself very much, even forbids others to love themselves, because, in his opinion, they are simply unworthy of it. Self-confident people who have high self-esteem become egoists. The problem lies in the formation of personality, which often develops from childhood. At a certain point in life, due to unfavorable conditions, selfishness begins to form. This can happen at any age.

Body features and personality

German psychologist Ernst Kretschmer put forward a theory that helps group a list of bad and good sides based on a person's physique:

  1. Asthenics (translated from Greek “asthenic” means weak) are thin individuals with an elongated face and limbs, poorly developed chest and muscles. They also belong to the group of schizothymics. Negative qualities of a person are manifested by isolation, seriousness, stubbornness, and a low level of adaptability to the new environment. Psychological disorders are accompanied by signs of schizophrenia.
  2. Athletics (wrestlers) are tall people with broad shoulders, a powerful chest and a strong skeleton, developed muscle tissue. The positive qualities of a person (ixothymic) are calmness and practicality, restraint. They are not impressionable and do not tolerate change. Mental disorders lead to epilepsy.
  3. Picnics are good people who are prone to obesity, of average height and short necks. Cyclothymics have a wide face with small features. They are sociable and easy to make contact. The best qualities of a complete person are expressed by increased emotionality and easy adaptation to a new environment. Mental disorders are accompanied by manic depressive states.

Hypocrisy - immoral actions

Pretending to be kind, loving, and sincere is a manifestation of one of the worst qualities, called hypocrisy. A hypocrite is ready to go to great lengths to achieve his goals, flatter others, and commit immoral acts. Very often a hypocrite is an egoist. The main thing that forces one to hypocrisy is fear of one’s own opinion, perception of the real, low self-esteem. Such a hypocrite is not only with others, but also with himself.

Hypocrisy - masks of one face

This trait can be recognized by several signs. The person smiles insincerely, is tense, has a deceitful, glassy look. When communicating with a hypocrite, one should be very alarmed by the lack of interest, natural emotions, and a sharp change in attitude after discussing a topic or doing a joint task. It is possible to overcome a character trait, but only if the hypocrite himself wants it. It is important to convey to him that it is much better to tell the truth, be sincere, engage in self-development, be responsible, and adequately assess oneself and opportunities.

Communication mistakes

Energy is lost when the following traits are present in the manner of communication:

- incorrect attitudes - uncertainty, self-confidence, too much isolation, excessive frankness, too much commitment to solitude, as a result of which a person lacks the energy of external impressions, or a depleting attraction to continuous contacts;

- erroneous habits - love of fruitless and aimless chatter, excessive waste of energy on secularism, the desire to imitate, a tendency to monologue;

- inability to be open and receptive when necessary;

- incorrect choice of communication partners, tendency to end up in inharmonious or “bad” companies;

- inability to secure and defend oneself in unpleasant or vampirizing communication;

- an overly trusting attitude towards persons with a clearly vampiric mentality.

Irina Pavlovna is 42 years old. She worked as a secretary at a large enterprise for ten years, but recently she has been experiencing a feeling of deep exhaustion, resentment, and weariness from life. Before this, my health, well-being, family, and work were fine. Outwardly, nothing had changed in her life, but negative emotions began to overwhelm her. A detailed conversation did not reveal the reasons for the emptiness. When the gross and external (and words are grosser than the world of radiation and energy) do not help, we must turn to the subtle. A meditative-energy subtle examination gave me the feeling that there was some kind of foreign energy in her aura. Since I do not like to trust only subtle premonitions and consider it necessary to test them using psychological methods, I began to ask her about those acquaintances with whom she communicates. “Yes, I don’t have any enemies. I understand what you’re getting at, but I’m on good terms with everyone,” Irina Pavlovna was perplexed. “Tell me about your friends, and about new ones, if you have them,” I persisted. It turned out that a year ago she met a woman who was married to a very rich man. She began to invite her to her house and take her into her company. Irina Pavlovna was interested in exploring the world of rich people, but communication began to cause her tension and stress. The contrast between these two worlds was too great. Without noticing it herself, Irina Pavlovna began to envy her and compare her husband with her own. As an active and cheerful person, she tried to drive away these feelings from herself, but only drove them into the subconscious. Seeing that she was not able to cope with envy, and at the same time was tied to her new friend with a painful dependence, I advised Irina Pavlovna to move away from her, no matter how difficult it was. The woman agreed with me and took such a decisive step. Today she feels well again.

What is the moral of this fable? Learn to choose your friends. Every mistake will be costly. As you can see, in order to lose peace, it is not necessary to communicate with psychological Draculas. Sometimes it is enough to choose strangers or people who are completely different from you as friends, and this inconsistency will lead to a loss of power.

A bad external environment and internal inability to communicate with people often lead to huge losses of vitality, so you need to learn mastery not only in actions, but also in communication. This will help save mental energy. Try to follow the wise advice of the ancients - seek the friendship of intelligent, noble people and avoid contacts with aggressive, dark and empty personalities. When interacting with positive people, learn from them everything valuable that they can give, and do not demand more. Be generous with them, and do not skimp on giving the energy of emotional attention and warmth. At the same time, if it is impossible to avoid contact with negative people, behave with dignity: do not make a scandal, do not be afraid, do not ask, do not buy into promises, do not get involved in common dangerous and dubious matters. Learn to easily get out of conflicts, and at the same time be able to defend your own opinions and beliefs.

Fluctuations in self-esteem

Life force is wasted when a person is prone to such types of errors in self-perception as:

- erroneous self-esteem, excessively underestimated, then all energy goes into psychological protection from partners and from one’s own negative emotions, or overestimated - then energy is spent on maintaining a sense of self-importance and one’s image;

- narcissism, which prevents normal energetic interaction with other people, chaining him in an impenetrable psychological cocoon and causing irritation if he has a different opinion;

- self-criticism, a tendency to soul-corroding reflection, soul-searching and introspection without practical steps to improve oneself;

- the habit of identifying oneself with a small physical personality, whose existence will end with death, as well as accepting the program of an “inner vampire”, acting either as a thief of someone else’s power, or as a plunderer of one’s own.

Vasily is 29 years old, he is a manager in a furniture company. A naturally shy and insecure person, he set out to become strong and secure, and showed considerable persistence in doing so. I studied martial arts for three years, did qigong breathing exercises, and recently diligently attended psychological trainings. As a result, he turned into a kind of psychological “jock” who can fend off any “attack” on himself. His natural impulsiveness, which previously manifested itself in bursts of resentment and irritation, turned into outbursts of anger, which people began to fear. But the main thing that bothered me was his irrepressible initiative and habit of starting things without taking into account the interests of people. His awakened power hurt everyone he crossed paths with. He was absolutely unable to work in a team and did not know how to plan things. An excess of poorly realized power obscured his vision of himself and the world around him. He came into conflict with the entire team. He was brought to me by an acquaintance of mine who worked in the same office, who was the only one who retained a normal attitude towards him. I tried to explain to Vasily that a true master is not only one who is ready to strike back at any moment, but also one who skillfully avoids conflicts, and suggested that he change stereotypes in working on himself. He began to learn to think about every action and plan its outcome, avoiding actions that lead to unfortunate consequences. A year later, Vasily became calmer and more restrained.

The art of accepting oneself as a whole, without dividing into pros and cons, plays a huge role in stabilizing self-esteem. For many people, self-esteem constantly changes depending on the attitude of other people towards them. They will praise you - you take off, they will laugh - you even lowered your wings.

Personally, I felt more or less stable inner harmony only when I learned to accept myself with all my strengths and weaknesses. After observing myself, I realized that the self-evaluating “I” does not occupy a stable place in my personality space. I began to observe this space and tried to master it, charge it with energy. Sustainable positive self-esteem arises only with inner strength and an expanded sense of “I”, which, under the influence of internal work, becomes strong, self-confident, present in every point of the body and soul. To do this, I had to separate my true and confident “I” from the superficial part of my personality, which depends on the mood and attitude of other people towards me. Only by achieving stable self-control over all parts and structures of consciousness, I formed a stable self-esteem, which is difficult to influence from the outside. The main thing in such cases is that you look decent in your own eyes, and not in the eyes of other people, who often evaluate you based on their own prejudices and moods. Pushkin gave a brilliant formula for true self-esteem: “You yourself are your own highest court.” However, nothing should be taken to the point of absurdity. The opinions of other people are important as a kind of indicator of the truth or falsity of one’s own actions. It will always bring down to earth a person who has fallen ill with star fever. Therefore, try not only to look good in your own eyes, but also to compare this self-esteem with external assessment - this is the only way you will approach the truth.

However, keeping your self-esteem in balance is not easy: only very confident and wise people are capable of this. The weak and sensitive need external support.

Nikolai is 38 years old and works at a computer company. He is lonely in his life in the capital, where he came from the distant Ural province. He puts all his energy into yoga, which he practices in a spiritual center. The atmosphere there, as, indeed, almost always happens in such centers, is very specific: an authoritarian guru, several closest students fighting for a place in the “sun,” and the rest of the public, among whom there are both ardent admirers of the teaching and pragmatists who want to using yoga to improve health and improve business, and just lonely people. Nikolay is one of the most ardent and passionate fans of yoga. However, this does not bring him the desired joy, since he has a complex character - compliant, kind and gentle, on the one hand, but overly sensitive and vulnerable on the other. Such a person is often “ridden.” But that’s not so bad; Nikolai could withstand such an attitude. But the guru chose him as an object for self-affirmation. At every meeting, he reminds Nikolai that he is at the lowest level of spiritual evolution and would have died long ago without the help of the center and its radiant leader. Nikolai internalized this opinion and perceived himself as a spiritual monster. It's rare to see such low self-esteem.

It seemed to me that Nikolai’s aura was broken and suppressed. While working with him, I focused on increasing his self-esteem. I spoke encouraging words about him and his spiritual work, trying to convince him that he was one of the most serious spiritual seekers I had seen. Surprisingly, this significantly helped him spiritually and psychologically, helped him perk up and believe in himself. A small push was enough for this. He himself felt how his soul and aura were straightening out, and after some time he left this center.

Jumps in self-esteem lead to a significant depletion of vital energy. Adequate healthy self-esteem poses a barrier for them. For a normal active person it may be slightly above average. Realize the pricelessness of your own higher nature living within. Do not succumb to the energies of other people's negative attitudes towards you. If you let them in, they will inevitably ruin your mood and lead to depression. At the same time, don't fall for flattery and false compliments. You run the risk of becoming bloated with complacency, losing your vigilance and, after some time, getting hit by circumstances. The right attitude towards yourself is a powerful energy-saving technology that gradually increases overall security.

Relationships with the opposite sex

The reasons for energy losses when communicating with the opposite sex include:

- an egoistic attitude, the desire first of all to receive, and, as a result, irritation and rage if what is desired is not realized;

- incorrect choice of a life partner and, as a result, an essential and emotional-energetic mismatch of such a couple, leading to mutual loss of strength and waste of time (which also has to do with energy);

- the tendency to psychologically rely on another, insufficient search for a common unifying support, which leads to loss of strength as soon as the other deceives expectations;

- excessive inclination to sexual imagination, as a result of which obsessive erotic images of a debilitating nature arise in a person’s mind, drawing energy onto themselves and depriving a person of a sense of true satisfaction (incubi and succubi in European occultism);

- a sanctimonious attitude towards sex as something low and dirty, and at the same time susceptibility to secret lusts.

The basis of the universe is the law of attraction. One cannot be happy by definition. Incorrect perception of this problem and the inability to see one’s divine antipode and complement in a being of the opposite sex leads to very large errors in behavior that energetically weaken a person. Cultivating in yourself the correct perception of a loved one as your divine half allows you to avoid mistakes, and therefore eliminate the reasons that lead to loss of vitality. Try to view your loved ones as children of God. Remember that giving, in the end, is always more profitable than taking, therefore loving is better than being loved. Try to choose worthy partners based on a feeling of deep inner kinship, so that your union becomes a single organism. Learn to perceive sexual relations not as something unclean or even dirty, but as a manifestation of divine law. All this will increase your level of security.

Negative qualities

Psychological qualities, like living threads, connect human subtle bodies, the inner world, external activity, will and relationships with other people into a single whole. If these threads are subjected to destructive processes, this leads to energy losses. Let us highlight the main negative qualities that cause a person to lose energy:

— fear (the energies of the coarsest type contained in it lead to rapid depletion of nervous and mental strength);

- a lie (while giving a gain in specific earthly affairs, it ultimately deprives a person of power, since it disrupts the axis of his mental-volitional balance, interferes with his connection with the Highest, puts a case on a person that prevents him from perceiving many types of pure energies coming from surrounding people, forces them to spend energy on remembering the complete deception and hiding dangerous information from others);

- greed (it forces a person to always be restless, to waste strength due to too passionate attachments to old things, which by their nature cannot give the energy of happiness and make up for the loss of strength spent on their achievement);

— anger (it, giving a person a temporary illusion of strength, ultimately wastes his energy, destroys his health and body);

- forgetfulness (it, being a consequence of a low degree of wakefulness and awareness, forces you to make mistakes and fail in matters on which energy was spent);

- vanity (it encourages a person to show mental anxiety and waste energy about someone else’s opinion about our real and imaginary successes);

— suspiciousness (it makes you worry about hypothetical failures that might happen);

- curiosity (it forces a person to strain his mental and emotional strength in order to obtain information that he, in principle, does not need, and to regret whenever this does not work out);

- laziness (it destroys all the subtle structures of a person, mismatches the connections between them and prevents a full-fledged psycho-energy-information exchange with the environment and the cosmos);

- lust for power (it pushes people to huge energy expenditures undertaken for the sake of ephemeral goals, since a person does not receive the attributes of power in a legal, natural way from fate for his merits, but by force snatches them from weaker competitors);

- touchiness (it makes a person inadequately assess the situation and worry, shrink internally, lose touch with natural sources that restore energy);

- frivolity (it, as can be seen from the word itself, too easily accepts any information, energy and opportunities and just as easily loses them, since it does not have mechanisms to delay the leakage of power);

— impatience (it spends all its energy on emotional outbursts and premature expectation of news or results);

- self-pity (it forces you to spend energy not on achieving your goal, but on worrying about how great the price of this achievement is, and as a result depletes the human soul);

- doubt (it steals vital forces, introducing constantly changing currents into the energy connections between a person and the object of his aspiration, suppresses the subtle connections that have arisen and thereby prevents the achievement of the goal);

— incontinence (by definition, it deprives a person of internal inhibitions, puts him in an unbalanced state and makes him lose the strength to take erroneous actions dictated by emotions);

- cynicism (it encourages a person to see the world upside down, mockingly underestimate sacred values ​​and shrines, and thereby cut off a person from the Highest Source of spiritual energy);

- pride (a person exaggerates his own importance and ascribes to himself the merits given to him by fate and God, which coarsens his mental energy and can interrupt contact with the higher “I”);

— ignorance (according to Buddhist ideas, this is the main sin, darkening the external manifestations and internal essential properties of a person and, like a black funnel, “draws in” all his energies and forces).

In fact, there are much more psychological qualities that de-energize a person. Different spiritual traditions identify different groups of negative qualities and pay a lot of attention to this topic. It is enough to recall the seven deadly sins of Christianity, the eight cardinal sins of Buddhism, the seven nafs (dark qualities) of Sufism to be convinced of how seriously religions and teachings of the world take this topic. The energetic role of negative qualities is quite understandable. They give birth to clusters of small dragons that parasitize the human consciousness and try to control the will, turning into small subpersonalities that divide the personality into partitions and sectors, as a result of which the integral will and united energy are fragmented and scattered. Dragon-like subpersonalities begin to feed on the energy of a person’s personality, weaken him, deprive him of his internal balance and thus open the door to the gross and subtle forces of darkness.

It should be noted that, with all the chaos and multiplicity of their manifestations, negative energy-wasting qualities have their own internal organization, hierarchy and subordination for each person. At the very core of the human soul lies a fundamental false trait or subpersonality that is associated with the basic wrong motive and drive of a person. Manifesting on the surface of human consciousness, but not yet embodied in numerous habits and qualities, it is divided into three main energy flows, corresponding to the three main false subpersonalities, or qualities of a person. They are internally closely connected with each other and mutually generate one another in such a way that it is impossible to destroy one without pulling the other along with it. It is possible to eradicate these qualities provided that work on them is carried out not only sequentially and one by one, but also in parallel, and ideally, simultaneously. It is not for nothing that Russian folk tales capture the image of a hero defeating a dragon only when he cuts off all three of its heads with one swing of his sword. Agni Yoga offers a similar algorithm for working on a person’s negative qualities: destroying the three worst qualities, burning them “in fiery aspiration” and replacing them with opposite positive properties that have evolutionary significance.

Lack of meaningful life goals

A person’s vitality drains away like sand through a sieve if he has the following problems:

- inability to set a worthy goal capable of harmonizing the external and internal tendencies of one’s own destiny;

- lack of search for the meaning of life, which elevates a person above the flow of vanity and minor problems;

- incorrect attitude towards the energy of time allotted by fate for solving the most important karmic tasks: excessive, painful dependence on the past, when a person is constantly immersed in painful memories, or, on the contrary, a complete inability to learn lessons from the past, realizing all the mistakes made, inability to live immersed into the fullness of the present, into its living nerve, which absorbs the past and the future at the same time; constant loss of consciousness either into an aimless game of memory or into fruitless dreams of the future, overestimation of today's difficulties and temporary blindness, in which a person ceases to see future prospects;

- incorrect, energy-wasting attitude towards obstacles, painful self-identification with them, leading to paralysis of the will, and the inability to extract hidden energy from them;

- erroneous perception of life as some kind of random play of forces, devoid of clear internal logic and cause-and-effect relationships;

- a person’s inconsistency with the social or life place he occupies: if a person’s role is underestimated, he himself loses energy first of all; if the role is undeservedly overestimated, as a rule, the business and the people who come into contact with it lose the most;

- the desire by any means to achieve a position in society and recognition that he clearly does not deserve (careerism);

- evasion of fulfilling one’s duties and duty in the place in which fate has placed him; with such evasion, a person does not receive the energy of the present (moral satisfaction), which can be given to him by the high-quality performance of his duty.

If a person perceives his life and incarnation as a game of random forces, devoid of meaning, or sees in it a short one-act play with an inevitable tragic ending at the end, then this leads to rapid exhaustion of strength. Such a person is capable of accumulating only crude energy of pleasure or material wealth. Overcoming the false concept of life and a heartfelt revision of the entire attitude towards one’s incarnation helps to conserve more subtle energy and softens the pressure of fate. Try to learn to perceive life as a great gift from God, despite all the problems and failures that you have to face. Don't expect a result from life that you haven't prepared for. Intelligently perceive the law of cause and effect - karma.

Topic for self-meditation

Make a list of all the factors in your life that cause energy loss. Choose the most important and serious among them. Enter a meditative state and examine with your inner vision your energy tone, the state of your chakras and aura at the moment. Ask yourself mentally: are these factors present here and now in the form of memories, unresolved problems and psychological trauma? Then mentally review your previous few days to identify these causes and factors. Your task is to see, feel and understand as clearly as possible the channels through which psychic energy leaks occur. Where are her negative habits, wrong actions, conflicting motives and unhealed wounds that turn into channels of energy loss? Having identified the channels of loss of vitality, it will be necessary to take primary measures to block them during meditation. First of all, we will need to mentally patch up the holes in our aura through which energy escapes. To do this, you need to mentally transfer your attention to the body-chakra, or auric, zone of the supposed energy leak and breathe through this area, imagining that the affected astral tissue is being restored and the aura is becoming strong again. Secondly, you need to eliminate the cause of energy losses - find the negative desire, negative emotion, dark thought that gave rise to this energy loss, recognize it as evil and pray to God to eliminate this error or defeat the negative trait.

Greed - thirst for more

Greedy people always cause contempt. This trait prevents you from building relationships with others, from working, from living, from being happy. After all, a greedy person always wants more, is unable to stop, help others, or enjoy what he has. A stingy person is ready to minimize all expenses, even to his own detriment. Greed is also manifested in the reluctance to part with unnecessary things, excessive saving of money, hygiene products, household services, and other things.

Greed is the path to loneliness

The reason for this behavior is self-doubt, depression, low self-esteem, and self-rejection. The desire to receive more and more comes precisely from one’s own dissatisfaction. Thus, a person tries to elevate himself not by personal development, but by material accumulation. There is no cure for this, the worst trait, but it is imperative to fight it. After all, such a quality has an impact on the psyche, emotional health, and leads to constant tension and illness. Greedy people are actually very unhappy, because they are often lonely.

Vindictiveness - accumulation of negativity

A person who harbors all grievances inside, then repays each potential offender in full for them. A vengeful person is always ready to return evil for evil, regardless of whether it is advisable or not. There are two types of vindictiveness:

  • healthy
  • unhealthy

Vengefulness - accumulation of negativity
The first personifies the readiness to respond blow to blow, but not to destroy the offender, but to stop such blows, to protect oneself. The second type of vindictiveness is worse; the person will not rest until the offender is destroyed. The quality is fueled by hatred, anger, resentment; a person is able to sit for a long time and think about plans on how to make things worse, to take revenge. Vengeful people harm themselves by devouring their own personality from the inside with anger and dissatisfaction. Usually those who do not know how to forgive, have inflated self-esteem, and perceive everything painfully become vindictive. This trait destroys from within, gradually causing hatred towards everyone.
