      Those I find the most exasperating are people who choose ignorance either for themselves, or feed it to the general public.
      As a person who hungers after knowledge, my mind is filled with data, charts, interviews, books, scholarly articles, psychology, etc. This broad range of data  gives me an ability to spot patterns, inconsistencies, misinformation and nuances.
      Having always been leery of the pull of television, the blinking lights and the dumb-cow looks of roomfuls of people watching television: over the decades I opted to do without television for most of my life.
      Today I am surrounded by dangerous people who have chosen ignorance. Not sure what appeal there is to believe outright lies, and become people who have cashed in their humanity for television feeds and refuse (rapidly blinking eyes, shaking head from side to side, "no, no, no.") to look at any facts or alternate resources.
      It is totally exasperating because humans show less ability to reason than what used to be called dumb animals. George Orwell was right - modern society is an Animal Farm now. Peace.

        It is FAR WORSE than Animal Form.  It is Dante's Inferno.

      I have great difficulty keeping my patience with people who utterly ignore the actual words I'm saying and verbally respond to imaginary cues in my body language and facial expressions instead.

      I find it totally exasperating because I can't even get simple ideas across to them. They read so many things into the unconscious twitchings and shiftings of my face and body that they seem completely incapable of understanding plain English. It's even worse if I try to remain perfectly still and keep a neutral or pleasant expression on my face around such people because it almost invariably creeps them out, sometimes making them hostile.

    People who are not progressive, woefully ignorant, do not want to better themselves educationally nor socioeconomically.  People who believe in living, even deifying a lifestyle which is detrimental for themselves and particularly for their children.  People who unthinkingly and willingly bring children into the world, knowing full well that they can ill afford them thus consigning their children to a childhood of myriad socioeconomic and educational disadvantages.  Such people should be tarred, feathered and dipped in scorching oil!

    My head feels as if it's going to explode when I'm around people who tell me I'm hurting people by helping them.

    I usually bite my tongue. The one I actually lost my temper with and chastised was a coworker who kept bothering me and bothering me after she overheard me talking to the boss about keeping a specific set of evenings free on my work schedule so I could participate in a literacy program. This was over ten years ago, but she made me so angry that I recall it clearly. She called me an enabler and she used the phrase altruistic hedonism to describe my volunteer work and she meant it to be nasty. It was the first time I'd heard that phrase used as a slur. Unfortunately, I have had to deal with a lot of people like her. Luckily, most of them don't get up in my face and bitch me out until I snap like she did. They just bleat out a few nasty things now and again.

    I say I snapped but I'm actually a bit embarrassed that my snapping was so mild. I told her she was upset because she enjoys being better off than other people and would prefer to keep it that way by keeping them down rather than by bettering herself.

    Those who ask me a question, then interrupt me to tell me their answer to the question.

    People who generalize by making assumptions about certain lifestyles, family dynamics, religious or political affiliations, etc. and then treat those personal judgments as if they were objective fact. It results in treating groups made of a random common factor as a single entity or batch of stereotypes rather than as individuals.

    It's especially annoying when the judgmental person insists that others in particular situations *must* feel/act/be a certain way and then refuse to engage in calm, intelligent dialogue with someone who counters their position. Or refuse to back up their claims with actual evidence. No patience there.
