15 People Who Have A Very High Opinion Of Themselves

The internet is great for a lot of things. Each and every time you sign on, you have a limitless amount of information all at your fingertips. You also have a limitless amount of nonsense at your disposal that you can access with the mere click of a button.

Some people use the internet for good, while others most certainly use it for evil. It really depends on the kind of person it is who’s sitting at the keyboard.

But, if it’s evil you want, it’s evil you’ll get if you go lurking around the internet. You’ll find all kinds of terrible stuff, including people who desperately need to be taken down a peg or two.

Which is exactly who this list is dedicated to! Let’s take a look.

16 20-Year-Olds These Days

Like you have probably heard a million times before, youth is definitely wasted on the young. When you’re a kid you just don’t have the perspective you need in order to understand just how amazing it is to be young and void of any responsibilities.

As you get older, all of those, “back in my day,” stories suddenly seem a little less hilarious than they used to be. And that’s because you finally realize just how dumb you were in your younger years.

But, there’s no one dumber than the 20-year-old above who had all of that nonsense to say about their own intelligence. With an ego that huge, you really have to wonder how bad it’s going to sting when someone finally takes them down a notch.

15 Enjoy Me

Speaking of ego, you have to be pretty darn full of yourself to post status updates like the one pictured above.

We have no idea when people got so preoccupied with their individual I.Q. scores, but we have had about enough of it. To be honest, we couldn’t care less about what you got on an I.Q. test. So, broadcasting it on social media for all of your followers to see really isn’t a good look.

What’s even worse is that this joker goes from bragging about his I.Q., to saying that the tests themselves are unbalanced. So, as smart as he claims he is, he sure seems to be a little confused on what exactly he’s bragging about.

13 New York Times Worst-Seller

So, like we have said before, we hate to sit here and judge. That being said, it would be hard not to judge if you saw someone reading the book in this picture.

We understand that there are people in this world who are smarter than others, not to mention people who are most definitely not as smart as others. But, if you’re the kind of person who isn’t reading this book ironically, then you might be a little too into yourself.

Also, it’s worth mentioning how terrible the cover of this book is. You would think with a title such as that one, the author would have picked something a little classier for the front cover.

Oh well, we suppose they aren’t nearly as smart as they think they are.

12 Elite Humor Alert

reddit.com

Everybody’s sense of humor is a little bit different. Some people out there prefer highbrow styles of comedy, while others are much more into the good, old-fashioned toilet humor.

To be completely honest, around here, we laugh out loud the loudest when the hilarity ensues in a way that blends the best of both of these worlds. So, in response to the 9GAG post above, we must not be cool enough to understand this particular poster’s, “elite humour.”

When it comes to the kind of funny people that you would want to be around, it’s usually not those that are a little too uppity about the kinds of jokes they like. We understand that everyone has their own preference, but, the person above seems like they wouldn’t be the most fun.

11 Group Chats Are the Worst

We all have those friends that are quick to throw us into a totally useless group chat. When this happens, there are several ways to react. Some of us begrudgingly go along with it, offering short, one-word responses to everything that’s being said back and forth.

And there are others who, instead of playing along, choose to derail the conversation as much as humanly possible so the others involved in the chat won’t include them the next time one is created.

You just have to hope that you’re obnoxious enough in these situations that people will think twice before adding you to a group chat. It’s a fine line to walk, but, with the right amount of perseverance, you can look forward to never being in a group chat ever again.

10 Not This Time, Son

Competitiveness is something that seems to be passed down from generation to generation. If you have parents who were competitive in their younger lives, or are even competitive to this day, there’s a good chance that same mentality is going to rub off on you as you grow from adolescence to adulthood.

Like with any other quirky personality trait, figuring out a way to rectify your competitiveness is fairly tricky. You don’t want to fully suppress it because that will drive you insane. But, you also don’t want to let it spill over and affect everyone who is around you because that gets really awkward really fast.

You really just need to know when to unleash it. And if you’re a parent, maybe don’t let loose when you’re just enjoying a friendly game of soccer with your kids.

9 Don't Make Me Do This

Texting really is the worst. You can sit there and say that you enjoy texting, but, you know deep down there’s a part of you that thinks it’s totally for the birds. We, of course, have to assume there are people out there who are avid texters though. 

But, we would also say that, as a rule, people simply text because they know so many other people have chosen it as their preferred method of communication.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, when it comes to texting, you really just have to play ball. Which means you have to deal with people not texting you back, leaving you on read, or texting you so much that you want to tear your hair out.

8 This Fool Walks the Line

As we all know, there is an extremely fine line between arrogance and confidence. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being proud of what you have accomplished in your life. But, using those accomplishments to make yourself out to be better than others is especially not cool.

Whoever posted this particular status update on Facebook must think they’re pretty cool to walk into rooms with this much arrogance. Either that or they won a Nobel Prize or something and have a bit of a chip on their shoulder.

Whatever the case may be, we will never understand why a person would spend their quality time posting ridiculous status updates such as this one on Facebook for any and everyone to see.

7 Ignorami?

reddit.com

Out of all the social media platforms out there, none are nearly as ruthless as Twitter. Sure, Instagram and Tumblr are no strangers to controversial conversation topics. But, there’s just something about Twitter that’s a little more savage than all the rest.

Even the shortest of scrolls through Twitter yields myriad different tweets about full blown craziness that people feel the need to discuss. It seems that when it comes to airing out dirty laundry, Twitter is the place to do it.

And this is why we aren’t surprised to see a tweet like the one pictured above. People say insane things on Twitter, a vast majority of which are much worse than this. But, any time you see someone use, “ignorami,” in a tweet makes you want to just ditch the platform altogether.

6 We Get It, You Read

reddit.com

We aren’t sure why reader types have such a superiority complex. But, one thing’s for sure: we are getting pretty tired of it. We get it, you read. You don’t need to beat everyone over the head with it.

But, still, they manage to work their scholarly nature into literally every conversation they have, citing authors that no one else has ever heard of, but, “definitely need to check out.”

It gets pretty tiresome to say the least. However, when you have bookworm friends, sometimes you just have to tolerate this kind of behavior. And if it really starts to get to you, you can wait for them to post goofy stuff like this on Facebook and leave your very own negative, eye roll type emojis for them and all their other friends to see.

5 We Get It, You Read Pt. 2

reddit.com

Like we said in the last entry on this list, avid readers can be a little grating from time to time. This certainly isn’t always the case, but, it definitely seems to be commonplace for anyone who spends a majority of their free time with their nose in a book.

We have just never understood why people who read claim to be better than people who don’t. Even if you’re not much of a reader, that doesn’t mean you're less intelligent or less learned than those that do. In fact, sometimes it’s the people who don’t read that are actually the smarter ones.

Don’t get us wrong, usually people who read frequently are pretty darn smart. But, you’d think the people who brag about that would be smart enough not to rub it in other people’s faces.

4 Back Off My Boo

Relationship culture in 2018 is a bit of a mess. It seems like even the most committed of couples have a little something-something on the side, or at least have a handful of flirty friends that they get some extra attention from.

Some relationships can withstand these additional affections, but, there are others that definitely cannot. It really comes down to the people involved in the relationship, and really, everyone handles these kinds of situations differently.

But, if you’re one of those people who actively pursue people who are already in committed relationships, then you’re kind of the worst. So, the next time you think of going after someone who already has their person, maybe use that energy and go find someone of your very own.

3 She Must Be Stopped

Some of the younger readers might not remember this, but, there was once a television show on MTV called, “Next,” back in the early 2000s. For those of you who never saw it, it was a dating show that paired up some of the worst possible people to ever be on TV.

Most of the contestants on the show were the absolute worst and seemed to revel in their nastiness openly throughout the entirety of the episode.

At its best, it was delightfully cringe-worthy. But, at its worst, it was almost impossible to watch. However, it seemed that was the charm of the show that kept so many people coming back to it while it was on.

So, if you’ve at least heard of the show, or know the woman pictured above, can you please tell her to stop sending feces to people in the mail? Thank you.

2 Can You Just Not?

Social media really is an excellent tool for people to keep in touch with one another and share pertinent pieces of information between themselves and their network of followers. Not only does it disseminate information at the speed of light, it also is incredibly easy to use.

But, when people are given the opportunity to broadcast their deepest, darkest thoughts and opinions for the entire world to see, you know that some of them are going to do so in pretty silly ways.

Take this bozo, for example. They claim to be above pointless Facebook debates. But, they’re sharing this sentiment on Twitter, one of the most insane social media platforms around. It seems if this person was really against Facebook debates, they wouldn’t say so on social media.

1 Intellectual Dominance 101

Getting into arguments with your friends becomes increasingly more common the longer that you’ve known each other. People that have been friends for years and years typically have at least one giant argument between each other throughout the course of their relationship.

Usually, these kinds of arguments are about something pretty stupid. But, other times they can be about something pretty serious depending on the situation.

All you can hope is that when you get into arguments like these with your friends, that you can get through them without having to sacrifice your friendship. Or, you can be like the statue in the meme above and tear your friends apart limb from limb.

Whatever you choose, we just hope that you and your closest homies remain friends when all is said and done.
