15 Reasons Sarcasm Is The Closest Thing To A Superpower A Person Can Have
Being sarcastic is a vastly underrated skill — yes, I said it — skill.
It’s unfortunate there aren’t more of these types of people out there; if there were, we’d all understand each other a little bit better. What? Sarcasm helps you understand others? You mean it does something else besides irritate ignorant “conversationalists.”
Sarcasm opens up endless opportunities for having engaging conversations. It turns any boring and mundane catchphrase into something witty and fresh.
But the reason it is such a skill is that so few people are blessed with this trait. I mean it’s the closest thing to a supernatural power we humans were bestowed with.
You may be wondering how this is possible, but don’t fret, I’m about to enlighten you. I know, you’re welcome…
1. You have the ability to see through people’s bullsh*t
Bullsh*t may fly for other people, but it certainly doesn’t for you. You can smell it a mile away and have absolutely no reservations in calling the perpetrator out.
How else are you going to bring these people back down to earth? It’s not easy staying humble, so thank God for your witty sarcasm.
2. Reading between the lines is in your second nature
Nothing gets past you! You know when people have ulterior motives and things have hidden meanings. Instead of letting that bother you, you use it to your advantage.
Now who said being manipulative is a terrible quality?
3. You’re invisible when it comes to being blamed
Basically, you just don’t give a f*ck. Most people would feel guilty and bathe in self-loathing. You, on the other hand, take it for what it is and get on with your life.
4. Sarcasm is your suit of armor
When people try to f*ck with you, you f*ck with them right back. Most of the time, these people get so confused and insulted, they just give up whatever the conversation was.
If this isn’t a great tactic to avoid unwanted conversations then I don’t know what is.
5. You know exactly how to get to people’s core
If anyone is foolish enough to pick an argument with you, you are more than prepared. You may be king or queen of the low blows, but that isn’t to say these people didn’t have it coming to them.
6. Your self-defense mechanisms are super human
You don’t need anyone to back you up because you can stand up for yourself. It takes a ton for you to actually get upset over something and if/when you finally do, no one will know but you.
7. You’re capable of saying what everyone else is thinking
Chalk it up to bravery or just not giving a sh*t — if something is on your mind, it’s coming out of your mouth. Sure, this may not always be a good thing, but it’s better than being walked all over.
8. You can flawlessly catch someone in a web of lies
You are not amused with over-exaggerations. In fact, your favorite part of a conversation is calling people out when they do this.
“Really?! It was really 100 degrees outside? No way…”
9. You’re strong enough to break through the densest of skulls
Even if people aren’t fully aware of the magnitude of what you are saying, they know you are saying it with all your brain power. Just the tone of your voice is enough to scare the sh*t out of others.
10. You can find a hole in any argument
Ain’t nobody got time for that. Maybe the more you make people aware of this, the better they will get at arguing. Until then, you’ll be busy putting people back in their place.
11. It makes you bulletproof to anyone’s criticism
People can throw shade at you all they want, but little do they know, you just don’t care. You’re happy with the way you’re living your life and that’s all that matters.
12. Your wit is razor sharp
You’ve got a comeback on deck for any situation that could possibly arise. People are often left in shock when they hear some of the things you say.
13. Your words are venomous
You’re one of those people whose good side everyone wants to be on, which has them questioning: Is it better to be feared or loved?
14. Stupid people are your kryptonite
Nothing infuriates you more than dealing with less-than-intelligent people. The worst part is you waste your sarcasm on them because anything you say will just go over their heads.
15. You can freeze people in their tracks with your words
You are basically a professional wordsmith and have perfected your talents by catching people off guard with your witty comments. Good thing you have no issue holding back!
