Knowing what you don't want is as valuable as knowing what you do.
This truth presents me with an interesting opportunity. I have a choice to learn from the people I do not want to be like, for the purpose of making better choices for myself and achieving better outcomes.
Who knows, by being more self-aware and making better choices, I might get an opportunity to help some of those people who irritate me so much.
How are you learning from those who you don't want to emulate?
