7 signs that show if you are the Tyrion Lannister of your group

These personality traits and quirks suggest that you resemble Tyrion Lannister in your real life and perhaps percieved by others as the same.

Admit it, you have imagined living like a 'Game of Thrones' character in real life as well. We have all watched the series multiple times, we have also repeatedly used the dialogues in front of our friends. These representations of beliefs through popular characters on television have been used by many to define their own reality.

The success of 'Game of Thrones' is no news to anybody. Their characters have been most loved and most popular among millions of viewers, so much so that viewers have quit watching the show after their favorite character was killed. Since we associate so much with these characters, we often wonder if we really would be like them in real life.

If you do ask such questions, the answers are coming. Here are some of the signs that you are the Tyrion Lannister of your social circles and family.

1. You know when to critique your friends

You tend to keep a check on how much your friends overplay their achievements and cool things. It is very natural for people to be carried away by their ego and vanity, however, yours will be a different take to it. You'll be prompted to action to show them a bit of reality.  

And if you see anybody being too high and mighty, you will make it a point to show them some reality and break their illusions. This tendency also comes from dealing with a lot of bullies and haters as a kid, which Tyrion had plenty of. Moreover, your sharp wit allows you to talk your way out of most tough situations.  

2. You keep the drinks flowing

You are particular about your drinks and have a very refined taste in alcohol. You also ensure that no party you go to is ever without the booze. You’re more than prepared to cover all expenses for your enjoyment if need be. You care very less about money when it comes to having a good time. 

You also make sure that people have a good time at the places you are at. If you are partying with your folks, you’ll be mostly surrounded by people and women, laughing at your subversive jokes and crass humor. But you also protect those you feel close to and care deeply for, as Tyrion does for Shae when he brings her to Kingslanding.

3. You lack patience for stupidity

You are no stranger to boring and lawless people, you have often got some of your job done through them without them realizing it or by negotiating offers that favor you. You do not like to waste time in answering uninteresting questions which bare no relevance to you. It also because your thoughtful sight is known only by select few people, while others may see only your ‘not the serious kind’ side.

Your uncompromising need to control your life and free thoughts which opposes inefficiency and lassitude, even if it is in the form of your own family, guides this attitude towards stupid things.

You like bigger ideas, grander debates and more consequential use of your time.

4. You are very loyal to people who are loyal to you

Your knowledge of people is rich, probably because you read a lot too, which also helps you talk on any subjects. If you hit off a good friendship with someone interesting and worth knowing, you’ll stick by them through thick and thin, and provide valuable insights. Just as Tyrion does for Jon Snow upon meeting him the first time, by telling Jon to never forget who he is (a bastard then) and how to wear it like an armor. 

However, you can be very reactive towards people who violate your trust and are disloyal to you. When you feel that your loyalty has not been reciprocated, you tend to awaken your most brutal side. Remember when Tyrion killed Shae with his bare hands? And when he demanded a trial by combat?  

5. You are resilient

Mainly because you may be clever and aware way before anybody else in the lot, you tend to see things a bit more clearly with lesser effort. This enables you to see your own faults and you don’t hesitate to accept what they may be. This takes the strength of character, which Tyrion has in abundance.

Since this strength of character is not limited to just your faults, you are also very discerning of truth and lies. Your cunning allows you to detect inconsistencies and lies.

The strength to accept faults, paired with the cunning eye to see things in actuality, make you immune to most of the hurt and hate you may be getting from people. You’ll probably not even be given the credit for doing a good job.

6. You understand the value of a dollar

You have a good sense of handling money and smart when using it. Though you are more than happy to help a friend in need, you make a point to be paid back in full. You know the right time to offer monetary help and who to trust with your resources.

You also know how to invest in a consistent performer, be it friends, tools, relationships, or any other aspect of life where you invest a bit more than just monetary involvement. People come to you for solutions for their money and they get it right.

7. You always have a comeback

Your wit allows you to be quick with words when it comes to answering an insult. Since you may have been bullied or given off-handed remarks, your past experience is more than useful in dealing with idle criticism and conventional wisdom that tries to hold you down.
