Have you ever gotten a bad vibe off of a person that's otherwise nice?

2 years, 9 months ago

There’s this guy I work with back home, and he’s a really cool guy, in all instances of the word. He’ll help you out if your car is broken down, be your last minute DD, never minds sharing, always has a smile on his face. Everything points to him being a good, trustworthy guy. But for some reason, I get the most uncomfortable, eerie vibe off of him. Like he’s gonna slip something in my drink if I turn around or something. Its like an axe murderer vibe, maybe not so crazy, but its just strange. I almost feel bad about it, but I’ve told some of my close friends I work with about the vibe I get, and they get the same one.

No matter what, I trust vibes. I knew this other guy, where I’m originally from that I got this evil vibe off of. All my other friends loved the guy, but I could never get over that vibe, and thought I was just being irrational at first. Then a couple of them moved in with him and realized just how fucked up he was, and I guess you could say I was right. This makes me want to assume that when my vibe senses tingle, they are accurate, but I just dont know. Does anyone else have any similar experiences?

@bongodeburrito, Dude my boss at work is super nice and all that, but after talking with him I got this vibe that something was up with this dude.

I found out a little bit of time later and was told by several coworkers that he has an anger issue and kind of snaps after a certain amount of time. He snapped on me last night. I still think there’s something else lying dormant in there, but my suspicions were partially confirmed.

Aside from that, though, he’s really nice. He brought and cooked up food for everyone work on the 4th because we had to work. I’ve heard good things about other stuff he has done in the past as well.

@lytning91, That’s what I mean. This guy gives off no social or physical indication that I pick up. Its just how the atmosphere is around him or something.

@bongodeburrito, Indeed. I get these kinds of feelings about people all of the time, dude. It isn’t just the weirdos or seemingly dangerous either…sometimes I can get really positive energies from people.

@lytning91, Yeah, I feel you. Most of my friends give off really good vibes, mainly because I cant surround myself with negative vibes. But even strangers I meet at restaurants, servers at restaurants, or even people on planes. Some people just have this awesome air about them.

I can relate to this. I like giving evil vibes to people, it makes them expect everything from life.

@bongodeburrito, That’s the total truth bro. I have basically tried to seek that out my whole life in people.

You will be surprised how well the subconscious mind can pickup the subtle the micro-expressions on other people’s faces. From my readings and understanding of the facial muscles and body language, micro-expressions are the facial muscle reactions that communicate what that communicator really believes or is really saying. It happens in a fraction of a second…so fast that people completely miss the clues with their aware conscious mind. These muscles twitch involuntarily…people can’t control it. They can mask it..but they cannot completely control these muscles.

Its then that the subconscious mind processes the micro-expressions and then relates that to your own body using mirror neurons. I believe the feeling that you are getting is your mirror neurons telling you that there is something more to this guy than what initially meets the eye.

Trust your body and watch out for that guy. Don’t owe him any favors.

See now if you had just stuck to your guns about people in general then mabey I would’nt even have to reply to this.I bet you know nothing factual about this guy that you work with,nothing that you can relate to at least anyway.Most likely the truth is that your dealing with your own fear of something he reminds you of. In fact you are doing all that you can to ignore the personal side of a person just because you are letting fear take over you.When you grow up you should start to see that depending on how you feal, this is how you will persieve someone.Until then pay attention to how you view people.P.S. If you smoke weed or do any drugs this will also create a feeling of disconnect between people that dont.

@thelightofgod,

My dude, that is quite the assumption you are making in your post. its actually quite contradictory. You state that “I bet you know nothing factual about this guy”..yet in the same post you also state “In fact you are doing all that you can to ignore the personal side of a person just because you are letting fear take over you.”

You don’t know him, do you?

You also state “When you grow up you should start to see that depending on how you feal, this is how you will persieve someone.Until then pay attention to how you view people”

Every thing you have said is an assumption. He is doing exactly what you mention…paying attention to how he views people. That is the whole thesis behind his posting.

“Most likely the truth is that your dealing with your own fear of something he reminds you of”..or that a defensive fear mechanism is triggered in himself through the actions of this guy. None of what you say or I say is fact. Pay attention to how you communicate. :)

@thelightofgod, I wholeheartedly agree. It’s about giving good vibes first if you want to receive good vibes. If someone gives someone else “bad vibes” it’s not necessary to be because of them. (I’m not sure why do you even call it that) In most cases it’s not because of you. If someone is giving you “evil vibes” or whatever you like to call it, just ask them or make them to cheer up, connect in some way! It’s kind of ridiculous to even think about this. Even talking about other people… I don’t know. Maybe some people are too needy to get a positive emotional reaction the whole time. Practice self-entertainment.

If you feel like you don’t like someone, you are prejudicial, they are not giving you anything. Fucking vibes and bullshit. :D

My friend is sort of an asshole and has really bad anxiety. I can feel it whenever he begins to have a panic attack, if he is near me, of course.

Vibes are a weird phenomena.

Yep I know the vibes you speak of, though don’t completely understand them. It’s hilarious, so many people are starting to speak of the vibes they pick up, they call each other ‘reptilian’ and I’ve seen people avoid each other over it.

I think it’s just the micro-expressions and emotions that you’re picking up on, perhaps with the help of psychedelics. I was able to acutely tune into the personalities and energies that people were putting off while on Mescaline, an empathogen (Any substance that produces feelings of sympathy, closeness, acceptance, and peace with surrounding individuals.) Some people were happy, silly spirits and others were dark and malevolent.

Could be any number of reasons they’re putting out that eerie vibe, and it may not be directed toward you. Usually overly nice people are the ones who eventually snap, overcompensating for their passiveness with outbursts of bottled rage. If this were the dark ages I might be worried, but unless he’s threatened you or you walk all over him, people have enough morals to not act on their emotions. To be careful, like someone else said, be sure you don’t owe him anything.

@beyond, How would you ask them exactly???

@bongodeburrito, I have had bad vibes from people, and they have been right. I dont believe in spirituality etc., when I get a bad vibe I know its from things I like body language. Subtle things, things most people dont notice. Trust the vibes, maybe you dont know where they come from but you probably have them for a reason. Don’t hold them against him but remember it nonetheless.

@c0ndu17, Well, if you have some irrational fears towards people you should ask yourself first.

Well I can clear up a lot, I dont do drugs anymore, being in the military its not worth ruining my life for a few kicks and eye opening experiences for the time being. I dont interact with this guy a lot. We work different jobs, we just happen to meet every once in a while due to squadron meetings and the fact that we live in the same building. And I’m open to the guy, I dont shy away from conversation, and I gave him a chance as soon as we met, even though I got the vibe instantly, I treated him no different than anyone else. I have no dependency on interaction, I was asking to see if anyone has had a similar experience. Apparently its not uncommon. Maybe it is me picking up micro expressions. Or maybe its some preconditioned facet of my subconscious to where I dont like his face, or his voice or something random. Who the hell knows? But I do know I’m not the only one who gets it from him. Like I said before, people I know that dont consider themself as someone who picks up vibes have said they dont trust him for some reason, even though they agree he’s a really chill, nice guy that gives every reason to be trusted.

Yes definitely. Always trust and follow your intuition/gut/instincts. There has been many times when I would get bad vibes from “nice people” that my friends introduce me to.. like a guy that a friend really likes and he ends up fucking her over, someone who turns out to be a backstabber, etc. And I’d warn them.. eventually the real truth comes out of the darkness.
