Moreover, these type of persons, when they discover that they lack money, the inner man that let them spend would also let them know that it is unlike them.

As a result, these persons have no option than to go stealing, and gradually they will graduate from stealing to robbing. They can influence you as a friend, letting you know that you should be like them. And when people see you with them, they will assume you do what they do, even though you are innocent. Avoid them.
- Class-bunker: A class bunker hate being in the class, even when an important lesson is going on. If you are his friend, especially one of intimacy, you will automatically become a class bunker too. Because, when you refuse to go out with him, you become an enemy. Consequently, you will seize from benefiting from him, if you depend on him for certain help. What you need do is to avoid such person as early as possible, before it’s too late.
- Womanizer/ ‘manizer’: As the name suggests, this person may be a lady or man that cannot do without a man or a woman, as the case may be. They change lovers as cloths, as though they must taste and test every opposite sex that comes their way. They will make you be like them, no doubts. Even though you got no interest in what they do, one day, the forces of lust in them will lure you to do it and you will discover that you have changed. Though, upon discovery, you will understand that it is too late, due to acquiring transmitted diseases, or the like. Therefore, avoid such persons.
- Self- elevated fellow(s): This type of person will not admit that he or she is lower than anyone. And the characteristics of such person is obvious and cannot be hidden. The problem they face is, almost everyone hate them and avoid them too, because, being pompous or too proud kick people off the track in anything they do.
