Lazy people come in different personalities and are not all identical in their characteristics; however, there are a few characteristics that lazy people tend to share including ignorance, apathy, inconsistency and potentially fear and hopelessness, according to Psychology Today and BusinessInsurance.org. People who are always lazy tend to have less motivation to do things due to hating their jobs or feeling bored at home.
Lazy people are not always intrinsically lazy though, states Psychology Today. Instead, lazy people may be lazy because they lack any passion to pursue goals or feel a lack of control over their lives. When people feel this way, they often shut down and avoid tasks at all costs, making themselves appear extremely lazy to others.
