The last thing you want to do is to react towards annoying individuals; this will give them power and reassurance that their behavior is getting to you. Annoying people are insecure by default; they strive on irritating others by projecting their insecurities away from themselves.

If there is no way that you can cut an annoying person out of your life (i.e., you have to work with them) then the best way to deal with this relationship is to tolerate their behavior without reacting in a negative manner; show them through your body language that you disapprove their behavior.

When you consistently do not react to their behavior, annoying people will grow inpatient because they will quickly realize that you are resistant to their provocations and pesky behavior. Instead, remain cool, calm and collected and let their behavior brush against your skin like a slight breeze in the background.

Learning to effectively deal with annoying people will teach you discipline, maturity and professionalism; composure is key to eliminating weak individuals from your life and attracting positive successful ones. Your goal is to remain happy and not allow others to pester you into anger and self-destruction.
