Answer Yes or No to whether you tend to engage too much in the following behaviors:YESNO

2. Adding too much value - The overwhelming desire to add our two cents to every discussion.
3. Passing judgment - The need to rate others and impose our standards on them.
4. Making destructive comments - The needless sarcasms and cutting remarks that we think make us sound sharp and witty.
5. Starting with "No", But", or "However" - The overuse of these negative qualifiers which secretly say to everyone, "I'm right. You're wrong."
6. Telling the world how smart we are - The need to show people we're smarter than they think we are.
7. Speaking when angry - Using emotional volatility as a management tool.

9. Withholding information - The refusal to share information in order to maintain an advantage over others.
10. Failing to give proper recognition - The inability to praise and reward.
11. Claiming credit that we don't deserve - The most annoying way to overestimate our contribution to any success.
12. Making excuses - The need to reposition our annoying behavior as a permanent fixture so people excuse us for it.
13. Clinging to the past - The need to deflect blame away from ourselves and onto events and people from our past; a subset of blaming everyone else.
14. Playing favorites - Failing to see that we are treating someone unfairly.
15. Refusing to express regret - The inability to take responsibility for our actions, admit we're wrong, or recognize how our actions affect others.
16. Not listening - The most passive aggressive form of disrespect for colleagues.
17. Failing to express gratitude - The most basic form of bad manners.
18. Punishing the messenger - The misguided need to attack the innocent who are usually only trying to help us.
