5 Things That Make Someone Unattractive

What does it mean to be unattractive? Is it about your physical appearance or your true inner self? This just might be one of the most debated things in human history.

First, let’s dive into the definition of unattractive. One can say the definition is simply about physical appearance. However, a more common meaning is having no inviting or appealing features.


If beauty is truly only skin deep, then what makes someone unattractive?

5 Unattractive Characteristics

Judging someone is never an easy thing. However, it’s important to consider what kind of people you want to bring into your inner circle. Five important indicators make someone unattractive.

Let’s go over them together:

  1. Hypocritical 
  2. Egocentric
  3. Manipulative
  4. Greedy
  5. Aggressive

1. Hypocritical

The best way to describe this trait is to think about a person who goes back on their word consistently. It’s a person who has no integrity in their words. They are known for their constant back and forth. Hypocrites change their story for their own personal benefit, never yours.

It would be a wise decision to be cautious when you are around people with hypocritical tendencies. Should you choose to address the issue with them, be weary of how they may react. Most will not be able to own up or even see the problem at hand.


2. Egocentric

This trait encompasses a self-centered vision without thinking of others. To be vain is an understatement. A person who always thinks for himself without thinking of others’ feelings is the literal definition. They tend to think with only the individual mindset as opposed to a community understanding, even if the outcome greatly affects everyone else.

Selfishness is never appealing. Egocentric individuals can be known to brag even about small things. It helps them feel good, despite how it affects them. Their focus is simply limited while having the inability to have regard for others.

If what we described above makes you think of a specific person, you may want to consider:

  • Set boundaries
  • Limit your interactions
  • Know when enough is enough

3. Manipulative

Being manipulative is one of the major red flags of an unattractive person. When a person intentionally uses strategies to gain something, that’s manipulation. This trait is beyond toxic for many reasons. Manipulative behaviors can range from lying to gaslighting and even silence.

There are many different reasons as to why someone would be manipulative, and it tends to vary on a case-by-case basis. With that being said, it’s important to recognize people with manipulative tendencies have a hard time identifying their true wants and needs. That’s what got them here in the first place.

Regardless, it’s important to sit down and talk about the behavior in a safe manner. Sometimes, a professional consult is needed, and it does help. Use your best judgment when addressing your own situation.

4. Greed

Greed can be traced back to the demise of ancient kingdoms. The unattractive quality is simply an intense selfish desire. Like the other indicators, the root of it changes. It is the uncontrolled sensation of gaining something. You can’t change overnight, and you definitely can’t help those who don’t want to accept the help. Figuring out the initial reason or direct cause for greed can be a good start! It’s no secret when we get our feelings hurt; our initial reaction is to express our feelings. You can do this, but just make sure to do it in a way that is respectful.

This personality trait can be what makes someone unattractive. It doesn’t mean they are bad people. It simply means they look out for themselves and will stop at nothing until their need is met to its fullest.

5. Aggressive

Let’s be clear: aggression and ambition are two different things. Ambition is a strong desire to pursue your goals. Aggression is when you become hostile, angry, and even violent. Aggression can be categorized as verbal, physical, intentional, relational, and passive.

Acts of aggression can include swearing, gossiping, bullying, harming others or themselves, snide remarks, and many more. Identifying these signs early on in any relationship, whether friends, family, or romantic, will help you figure out the next best course of action.

When dealing with this unattractive trait, your safety is your priority.

Unattractiveness is not determined by appearance.

When most people hear the word “unattractive,” their mind most likely goes straight to physical attributes. For many, personality traits will always be a deciding factor. Beauty is only skin-deep.
