We all have our own insecurities, but sometimes we put them on display with our behavior.

Reddit user iWant12Tacos asked "What screams, "I'm insecure"?" How many do you recognize?

Agree to Disagree

Not being able to see that disagreeing with what they say doesn't mean that you have an issue with them.

Apply Alcohol

Me, after a few vodkas.

"I'M INSECURE!"

Brazen Love

Daily "I love my husband/wife" FB posts about how great their spouse is. And writing on their FB wall conversations you would probably have at home, in person...

Brazen Love
Don't Be Cruel

A few times I was told defensively (by my ex) "It's not my fault for saying things that I knew would be-- & had designed to be-- emotionally abusive. It's your fault for getting upset over it."

People like that are weaklings. I have nothing but disgust for that trait.

Don't Be Cruel
Going Fishing

Constantly putting yourself down so others will compliment you.

Going Fishing
Everybody Wants Me

When someone tells their partner about all the people who hit on them.

Or worse, "I didn't cheat, even though I could have."

Everybody Wants Me
Joint Statement

Joint Facebook account.

Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg have "joint" accounts and they seem pretty secure in themselves.

Joint Statement
Kim Who?

Daily selfie posts.

And resharing the old selfies from your Facebook's 'on this day' every single day.

Kim Who?
Deez Nutz

Overly aggressive/vulgar bumper stickers on the back of your lifted/chromed out truck.

Bonus insecurity points if the truck has TruckNutztm.

Midwesterner here. We have an epidemic of un-neutered trucks.

Having a folder delivered to you everyday of only good things people said about you?

Do you know someone who does this?

It's a 71 year old that rose to the top with one simple trick.

Fiction Is Stranger Than Facts

Telling stories about fictional people giving you praise.

Tear Down

Feeling the need to constantly put down others in order to boost their own self esteem.

It Does Make the World Go Round

Constantly talking about how much money they make.

Mr. Right

Inability to admit you're wrong.

Mr. Right
Liar Liar

Telling obvious lies on any social media platforms.

That reminds me of the time that my friend and I were playing music in his garage, and Paul McCartney was walking by, and told us he thought we were better than the Beatles, but chastised us for not being more creative with making up fake stories.

Liar Liar
National Endowment

Having a giant penis like me and bragging to people about it.

Look How Insecure I'm Not

My insecure sister enjoys talking about overcoming insecurity on Facebook.

"I was always too insecure to wear a bikini but I think it's important to show how far I've come" or "I realized I need to allow myself to be vulnerable and show how far I've come with my singing."

She is trying to show she has overcome certain insecurities but her need to post that sh*t constantly shows she still relies on compliments for her self esteem.

Look How Insecure I'm Not
If You Have to Tell Us...

When people say "I have a very strong personality".

I automatically cringe but don't say anything cause I don't want to hurt their feelings but really a person that has a strong personality doesn't have to mention it. We can all sense it, you know what I mean ?

If You Have to Tell Us...
Ha Ha

When someone nervously laughs at the end of every sentence.

Instagram Famous

Deleting a social media post when it doesn't get enough likes.

I'm a pilot. Around the lounge, there's this other pilot who very often will announce how his landings are so great that different Towers around the US will consistently tell him how great his landings are and how they've never in their careers seen such great landings. Everyone just rolls their eyes and groans. Is this guy so dense, that he doesn't see how everyone thinks he's full of sht? Doesn't he see how much of an a*, and insecure he's coming off as? Tower is too busy or doesn't even care to compliment anyone's landings.

Q & A

Posting Facebook quiz results that say how smart, mature, beautiful, or amazing you are in whatever way.

It's especially telling if someone has a bad habit (like being terrible at housekeeping/messy) and posts a quiz result saying how this trait makes them better than other people (usually, "more creative").

Before Facebook I had no idea how many friends I have that are rocking 150+ IQ's. Like damn girl you failed Advanced Algebra twice in high school but here you are making Einstein look pants-on-head stupid. Go you.

Q & A
Up Yours

One upping every story you hear.

I know something way worse then that.

Bro let me tell you, that's nothing compared to the thing I hate.

My dude, if you think that sucks let me tell you about this other thing.

Up Yours
Winner Takes It All

Being a sore loser.

"hey sexy whatsup"

"not interested"

"well neither am I... I wasn't even talking to you"

My Test, My Rules

People who feel the need to decide whether others are "true" members of their group/fandom/whatever based on their standards alone.
"If you haven't read the manga, you're not a true [insert anime here] fan!"
"If you can't name more than 5 albums of [insert band here] or recite all the members' blood types, you're not a real fan."
"If you don't speak perfect Tagalog, know how to cook adobo blindfolded, or memorize the length of Manny Pacquiao's penis down to the millimeter, you're not a true Filipino."
They act like that group/fandom is all they have going for them, so they'll fight tooth and nail to avoid getting knocked down a peg.

My Test, My Rules
Look At My...

"Look at my new socks guys!" top down shot with 80% cleavage

"new haircut!!" picture is 50% boobs and 50% face

"I got my nails done!" camera is on vagine

If you Have to Tell Us, Pt. 2

Always pointing out how beautiful/rational/smart/exciting/rich/etc... they are instead of showing it.

If you Have to Tell Us, Pt. 2
A Man's Man

Dads that want to yell at their son to show what a man they are.

They think it makes them look confident, it makes them look insecure, angry and just weird.

Raised by Wolves

Using the term alpha.

Anytime it's spoken out loud, it just make me feel very uncomfortable.

It's so childish and pathetic.
