Do you have a difficult personality in your life? Would others consider that you are their difficult person? In this book we have turned the microscope on difficult types of personalities and patterns of behaviour, which range from annoying and confusing to the seriously damaging. Like most of us, you have probably encountered situations with family, friends, workmates or associates who have hurt you. Either they have damaged you emotionally or financially, or their behaviour has caused ongoing distress or worry. Understanding how people think and knowing some of the reasons for their patterns of hurtful behaviour will take you part of the way to handling your difficult relationships more successfully. People sometimes do not reciprocate our feelings, fail to appreciate our worth, fall out of love with us, betray, leave, retrench or disappoint us. These are all part of the pain of being human and do not necessarily reflect people being difficult. But some people have ongoing behaviour patterns which hurt many others. They leave behind more than one hurt or troubled person because of their difficult personalities. Some people have a mildly difficult behaviour pattern while others have moderate or very difficult behaviour patterns, and the effect of these patterns on others may also range from minor to severe. Here are some of the guiding principles we have used in identifying and elaborating on these difficult patterns.
