LONDON: No matter how much you try not to, you do or say some things that make people dislike you immediately.

Here are the traits and behaviours, according to The Independent, that people find intolerable:

- Sharing too many photos on social media
Posting too many photos might alienate people, according to one study that looked at 508 Facebook users. Posting too many family photos may alienate friends and posting too many photos of friends may alienate family. So, keep some photos to yourself.

- Humblebragging

Most people do this in job interviews, saying things like "I work too hard" or "I care too much". A Harvard study shows that will hurt your odds of getting hired. Instead, state a real weakness that isn't a deal breaker.

- Hiding your emotions

Researchers showed students two different videos of an actor's face. The actor would either show emotion or remain emotionless, while they watched funny or sad scenes from a movie. Students rated the emotive actor much higher in likeability.

- Not smiling

A study took 100 students and showed them photos of people posing. Researchers found no matter how the person in the photo posed, people liked them most if they were smiling.

A different study found that smiling made you more memorable, after meeting someone for the first time.
