Someone who is enraged by evidence of another's success and as a result has to try to one up the successful person or simply put the successful person down. Hating is much more than just being jealous of the person who has done well. The hater would find much satisfaction in seeing some form of misfortune come to that person.

Haters may also simply find satisfaction in someone else’s misfortune. When a friend falls off a bicycle and lands in the sewer for instance, it is a normal reaction to laugh at the situation. However, a hater will respond slightly differently by laughing at the person in a ridiculing manner.

Haters have a special link to one another and they tend to fuel each others hate by hating in groups. It may be a form of stress relief or something entirely different but they do seem to become happy from the escalation of hate for a person that arises in these groups.

Haters generally tend to hate people who are doing well even more so - racists excluded - if they are closer or more similar to them or of a similar social class.

When Jesus talked about prophets not being welcome in their own home town, he was probably talking about the haters.

There is one African tribe that used to be famous for hating its best hunters. A great hunter would make the biggest catch in months for instance, and then everybody would put him down by telling him that they couldn’t believe that he could expect them to eat something so puny and unhealthy looking.

However, hating is by no means limited to Africa. Hating exists all around the world. Among travellers for instance, Anglo-saxons from the UK, US and Australia are famous for hating, especially when a non anglo-saxon is doing well. This reputation is likely the result of a handful of haters that make a bad name for every Anglo-saxon, and even citizens of these nations who are not even anglo-saxon.
Sally: "Wow, China and India have been doing really well and a lot of jobs have been relocated due to the super-cheap labour. Are you worried about your job?"
Brian (hater in denial): "We’re in the only country that has quality management skills. Those guys are not smart enough. There’s no way that my job could ever be done by someone outside."

Shawn: "Damn, Kev’s been doing real good these days working his new job. He just got a new car and he paid cash. He’s looking for a house now too."
Wilma (hater): "I don’t believe it. That Kevin is not making that money from a new job. That fool be dealin’."

Peter (hater who is racist but probably doesn’t think so): "No way, mate. Ain’t no way, that this coloured fella goes to Oxford. How many black people go there, like 10? What are the chances?"

Theres two type of haters in this world, mature haters and immature haters. Mature haters, they are the people who hate an individual IF the individual did something unacceptable or morally wrong, such as corruption, pickpocketing, murder etc. Immature haters, they are the people who hate an Individual due to the individual success or difference, immature haters creates fake story or scenarios to convince a person to hate the individual and thus hopefully to defame the individual. Immature haters can be known as losers of the world, because instead using their valuable time to do good for themselves they spend time hating the individual for one or two samll reason. To prevent yourself to become an immature haters, get a job, do workouts, go out with friends, yoga, etc.
Mature haters: I hate the man who robbed the old lady.

Immature haters: U suck your jokes arent even funny so shut up and die noooooooooooooooooooow i know a guy who is waaaaay funnier than you so shut up and if you keep posting your videos in youtube ill ban you you just love munny your singing sucks i own youtube facebook twitter and blah blah blah blah

Haters are somewhat of a breed of a Human-Extraterrestial Being cross born with about 2 or fewer purposes in life. To Annoy and Pester. They tend to lurk around the Internet, finding places to plant their little devious plans of destruction. Their primary targets are usually those who are:

-Famous
-Successful
-Part of a Fandom/Group
-Just plain better than them

How they operate is simple. To bring up pointless, nonsensical facts about a certain topic towards a person, usually against that topic. They all have a catchphrase (which is really stolen from Trolls nonetheless), "U Mad, Bro?". This statement is the blind truth that these people have nothing better to do with their time on the Internet.
Guy: So I put up this picture on the internet
Girl: That's awesome! Can I se-
Hater: Faggot! Why don't you go jack off to your anime crap you yiff!
Girl: What did you say to my boyfriend...?

Hater: U Maaad, Brooo?
Person: Actually, I think you're the one who's mad because compared to me... And many others... You just suck.
Hater: ...

haters are people who waste their time voicing their opinions on the people they say they dislike, when in actual fact, if they really hated that certain thing, they would keep away from it.

Haters also backfire on themselves when they retaliate against haters of things they love.
Girl 1: omg you random twats that I don't know are so fucking horrible! I don't really know who you are but I'm going to just say your fricking awful coz i can!
_________________________________________________

Girl 2: LOL this random twat is hilariously retarded! You call that dancing? it looks like my goldfish trying to backflip! lol!

Girl 1: OI, YOU CAN'T SAY THAT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HER! In actual fact she is really nice and loves goldfish! Piss off haters!

Someone who despises his or her situation so uch they need to openly criticize others, sometimes in a disguised way to make it look self depreciating.
Cool dude: Hey look at my new car!!

Hater: Ah! So that's what a rich person looks like.

Cool dude: Stop hating man

Hater: Not at all, I was trying to be self-deprecatingly funny. I think it worked.
