  • Hey, Psych2Goers!

  • Have you ever wondered why you and a person just won't get along, even if you've known each other for a long time?

  • Do you often feel like there's some kind of barrier between you and them?

  • If you do, then it's possible that you're incompatible with them, meaning that you're not likely suited for each other.

  • So, here are six signs you are incompatible with someone.

  • One, you argue in different styles.

  • Arguing is a normal phenomenon between human interactions.

  • However, how you argue and handle conflict with the other person is important to consider whether your relationship or friendship is compatible or not.

  • Do you tend to explode, yell, or scream when you're upset?

  • You might be seen as reckless by someone who has a reserved personality.

  • Or do you tend to just shut down and take off altogether?

  • You might be seen as cold or aloof by someone who has a passionate personality.

  • These extreme differences can cause a lot of emotional strain in your relationship, and make it hard to get to the core of the conflict and resolve the argument.

  • Two, your lifestyles vary.

  • Do you have different ways to relax, such as reading a book and doing yoga, versus socializing with friends and going out for karaoke?

  • Or, perhaps, you're a night owl but they're an early bird.

  • While having different hobbies and beliefs are normal, it's also important to find some things that are suited for both of you to enjoy.

  • The difference in lifestyle habits may later become a source of conflict for your relationship.

  • Three, you have trouble communicating.

  • The way you communicate with each other is also very important to your relationship.

  • Perhaps, one of you tends to disregard your own emotions or how others feel, and only focus on what's logical.

  • While the other person focuses on how things make them feel and the importance of emotions, more than the logical facts.

  • This difference in communication style may lead to difficulties in the long run.

  • Four, your values and principles are very different.

  • Is your partner, friend, or sibling constantly late when you plan to meet up?

  • When you complain or try to talk to them about it, they shrug it off or don't even see what the big deal is.

  • In this case, you value punctuality and they don't.

  • Little things like this can show you what your values are and what theirs are.

  • It's important for both of you to share similar or have common values for your relationship to go far.

  • Five, you no longer have things in common.

  • Were you interested in their likes and dislikes at first?

  • Did you enjoy finding out about their hobbies and interests?

  • While getting to know each other is fun and exciting in the beginning, you might later find that there aren't that many things you share in common.

  • You may even feel frustrated that you can't be yourself around them since you don't actually enjoy the things they like.

  • It's important to have things you share in common and to do things you both enjoy.

  • And six, you can no longer tolerate them or the relationship.

  • Do they refuse to change or talk with you when you encounter a problem in your relationship?

  • Despite the times you've forgiven each other, you may start to feel tired of the unchanging situation.

  • No matter how we may want to talk about a problem or suggest some possible solutions, they don't want to hear it or don't want anything to change.

  • If you feel like you can't tolerate them or the situation you're in any longer, it's a sign you might not be compatible with them anymore.

  • Do you relate to any of these signs?
