Disagreeable people are not really
interested in others and/or other
people’s problems.
http://ipip.ori.org/newBigFive5broadKey.htm

We tend to stereotype takers as disagreeable and givers as
agreeable. That is not correct. Giving and taking is based on
our values. To give or to take are choices we make regardless
of whether our personalities are agreeable or disagreeable.
Keep in mind that givers can be disagreeable, and that takers
can be agreeable.

Tip for agreeable people
Think ”I want to be perceived as fair” instead of
”I want to be liked.”

Ideas for disagreeable people
1. Say what’s in it for others.
2. Use humour.
