    Im a Misanthropist

    i have been nearly forever its caused by a deep inbred cyncism. Misanthropy is a general dislike, distrust, or hatred of the human species, or a disposition to dislike and/or distrust other people. The term is also applicable to those who self-exile themselves or become loners...

    Just Some Random Person With A Story To Tell

    First of all, I don't think I am a full misanthrope, but I'm enough to despise, and be skeptical of the human race. I'm fed up and disgusted with humanity. I've seen a lot not to be aware of how low people are, and I'm not who I used to be. Ever since I was child, I was surprised...

    I've read a list of experiences on misanthropy,

    and I would say that my particular instance isn't much the same as others, although it is. Since elementary school I have seen everyone as the same. I never knew why, but I always felt like everyone's just a clone. Probably because of a limited variation of personality, I...

    I hate humankind but it doesn't mean I hate

    them all. It's impossible to hate everybody. That's an another reason why I hate humans (even myself but I'm not an emo) . Emotions. Emotions control people and turns people to stupid, love-sick, blind and ignorant disgusting , cruel things.

    Realizations

    I've been a misanthrope since roughly 7 years old.  I was that odd kid down the street that was almost never seen outside, and who actively avoided playing with the other kids, usually out of a misunderstood (at the time) sense of disgust. I'm now 37, and only in the last 6...

    I'm a misanthrope.  Like many misanthropes, I do not dislike EVERYBODY.  But my tendency is to dislike the vast majority of the "public."  I do not care for "aquaintances."  Aquaintances bore me to tears.  Either someone is a true...

    Misanthropy Is A Natural Reaction To People's Deplorable Behaviour.

    If you are an honest, decent person it's very difficult not to be a misanthrope.  For me, misanthropy was not a choice, it was a simple, natural response to the way most people are, or at least seem to be.  I've seen and experienced too much selfishness, egotism, narcissism...

    When I was younger, I had a large amount of hate

    when it comes to people. Honestly and truthfully hated people. Funny enough when I actually discovered the word Misanthrope, I just felt a sort of pity for people afterwards. I just pity the ignorant and materialistic people, that surrounds me everyday.

    The dictionary definition

    for misanthrope includes the phrase “hates or scorns mankind.” I would prefer a definition that includes the phrase: “is profoundly disappointed in mankind.”
