"I do not like people."
Translation:Eu não gosto de pessoas.
Hmmm. In my region that would sound a bit weird,not sure bout yours ,unless you add further information, ex: não gosto de gente chata/esnobe - i dont like boring/snobbish people.
If this is the way it is properly said then that should have been introduced and not sprung on us. I guess we will remember it since one feels tricked.
