Labeling and mislabeling

Those who label or mislabel will habitually place labels that are often inaccurate or negative on themselves and others.

“He’s a whiner.” “She’s a phony.” “I’m just a useless worrier.”

These labels tend to define people and contribute to a one-dimensional view of them, paving the way for overgeneralizations to move in.

Labeling cages people into roles that don’t always apply and prevents us from seeing people (ourselves included) as we really are.

It’s also a big no-no in relationship conflicts.
