It probably goes without saying that the more time you spend with someone, the more likely you are to find small things about their personality that irritate or annoy you.

Which is why a new study conducted by researchers from LG Electronics has produced some unsurprising results – as they’ve discovered the person you are closest to can often be the person who annoys you the most.

The study investigated how people perceive their loved ones and whether they get on your nerves – and produced some interesting results from the 2,000 people researchers interviewed.

The data revealed that a third of people in relationships listed their partner as the most annoying person they know.

According to the report, those people can spend up to a fifth of their day being frustrated with their significant other because of traits including snoring, loudness, messiness, rudeness, and even farting.

And while snoring and passing wind can’t exactly be helped, partners also found their other half to have other irritating personality traits.

People said their partners annoy them because they “never listen” and “talk through TV shows”, as well as being “bad with money” or having a habit of “leaving clothes on the bedroom floor”.

Marina Clowes, from LG Electronics, said: “It’s no surprise to see some of the most common annoying partner habits that Brits have voted on. I’m sure we can all relate to some of these.”

The company conducted the study to see whether they could alleviate people’s daily stresses with the help of their tech gadgets.

Marina added: “It is interesting to see how many of these can be solved if you have the right smart technology products at home though, like TVs with algorithms that learn your preferred viewing genre, noise-cancelling earbuds, and even steam closets to revive your ‘floordrobe’ items.”

Although the study looks bleak for people in relationships, many people also said they’re happy to keep living with the things that make them annoyed.

An impressive 41 per cent of people who responded to the survey said they wouldn’t change their partner’s annoying habits as it’s what makes them the person they love.
