    Can you name 3 positive things about the person you dislike most?

    Without naming the person - for privacy's sake.  Can you really open your mind to think of three positive characteristics or something you can admire in the person whom you dislike the most? I think it would make for great character development literally - and in ones writing.

    I do not dislike anyone. I do dislike certain behaviors, attitudes, philosophies, traits and/or habits some people may exhibit. When "dislike" is directed at the person, we cut off any opportunity to bring about positive change.

    The person I dislike I have very good reason to dislike BUT there are several good things about him even though I hate to admit it. He is insightful, close to genius, resourceful, and never quits. I admire nothing about him, but he does have positive characteristics.

    I can always find something positive about a person, even if I do not choose to be or remain their friend, or in close contact if family.

    yes, there are only two people who I really dislike - well more the way they behave really - but both are talented can be funny, warm and caring when they choose it.

    I think that when we say we dislike somebody, we are really saying that we dislike their behavior. Anyway, three things: he is well-mannered, dresses very nicely, and is an expert in his field. In fact, he has most people fooled. I find myself really liking him sometimes, then I have to remember the harm he has done and remind myself not to trust him.

    The person I dislike is a colleague of mine. I dislike that she is a troublemaker. However, I can say that she is a good teacher, has a good sense of humor, and has a quirky view on the world.

    The person I dislike most is very bossy in my work environment, but of course there is always positive value every person has.He is skillful, he is determined in his job to perform well and most of all he never quit.

    Thanks everyone for your answers.  I do agree it's the "behaviors" more than people we tend to dislike, however to pretend that we like everyone I think can also be a bit dishonest.  Keep in mind "dislike" is not the same as "hate".  I do not ever waste my time nor do I believe it is healthy to hate anyone. 

    I can dislike someone and still compromise and work with them.  I worked with one man in the past who was a terrible mysogynist.  I disliked him as a person, he was demeaning and harassing, however - he was also very smart, had business savvy and was quite good at the art of persuasion.  I can't say I admired anything about this pig of an individual, but I still worked to find something I could like in order to be able to work together in our job.
