Is being sarcastic a bad personality trait?

Report as

I'll be a hypocrite and say, Yes. Sarcasm, by nature, is a negative-type of humor, and negative people evolve from using it constantly. Plus, it uses counter-intuitive intonation to a point where people don't trust your word anymore. Example: a guy sees a girl and says, "SHE's a fine looking lady." notice the tone change - that's sarcasm.

So in conclusion: THAT was a good question. Eh?

Honestly, the nicest people I know simply don't have the ability to use sarcasm. You'd be surprised if they suddenly used it.

It's in my blood but people think it's funny but there's times that it can be really rude so you would have to control it..:)

No, it represents humor which is very good. You just have to use sarcasm moderately so people understand and don't take it the wrong way.

In the wrong situations, like a funeral, wedding, or hospital. In others, feel free if its not serious.

It totally depends. Sarcasm is often cynical, which makes it either funny or offensive. Know your audience.

If it's not demeaning. It's ok to do it to make someone laugh but not otherwise.

Sarcasm is the way I communicate with all the der de ders out there.. the way I see it, if they don't get it.. they are too serious for me to associate with anyway.

Hence my Mia culpa at the start of my answer. Too many of us out there - and the world truly will be chaos.

Some people find sarcasm rude and ignorant. It all depends when you use it and they way you use it. Others make find it humorous.
