Everyone has teased, nagged, betrayed, or lied to another person. Likewise, everyone has been the unfortunate object of such unpleasant behaviour. In this volume, social psychologist Robin Kowalski examines the intricacies of six annoying interpersonal types of behaviour: complaining, teasing, breaches of propriety, worry and reassurance-seeking, lying, and betrayal. She considers the functions of this behaviour, the types of people who are inclined to do them, the consequences for victims and perpetrators, and the ways in which such behaviour might be curtailed. "Complaining, Teasing, and Other Annoying Behaviors" provides a multifaceted picture of common annoying types of behaviour. The book answers these questions and many others: Why do people tease?; What are the consequences of annoying behavior for the people involved?; Is there a positive side to irritating behaviour?; Are people more likely to lie to those close to them or to strangers?; Do excuses and apologies diminish the hurtful effect of unpleasant behaviour?; and what is the relation of gender and culture to specific annoying acts?
