  • Do you tend to see the positives in others or the negatives?

    I had this conversation with someone yesterday and I wonder what the interwebs thinks about the subject. There are some people tending to think only what liked on others, others what could be improved. What do you think? I personally think the matter needs balance since being too pessimist is overwhelming but also seeing everything being great can lead to forgetting about important problems piling up.

    I try to see both sides of a story, but I find that folks don't appreciate someone playing devils advocate.

    Either you believe one way or the other, but some folks won't let you consider both sides.

      I'm a very positive person, (sickeningly optimistic some might say) but I can also see the flaws in others and myself, but that doesn't make me like them or myself less, in fact it endears me to them even more. Like you say TDK it is a matter of balance. There's nothing more unappealing than someone who thinks that he or she is perfect but at the other end, there's nothing more draining than being in the company of someone who thinks they can never do anything right. People who are aware of and honest about their own flaws, yet not too overly preoccupied with them are very balanced and refreshing company.

          People try to give off a good first impression, so it's hard to see what they are really like until you dig a little deeper.

          Sometimes you like what you find, sometimes you don't.
          I think that people will pick apart a person for no other reason then to feel superior. Personally, I think that people are generally good natured.

          I have a black/ white quality about me.

          Either you really like me...or you really can't stand me.

          Oh well.

              I tend to be a realist about my own life, but I tend to only see the positives in most others though I am able to be objective if asked!!!

              Okay...I don't know...

                Depends on the person.
                The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                  I try to find the good in people. Although most times i am dissapointed with people.

                    If the person leaves a bad first impression on me I tend to see and be more negative to them but other than that it's positive.
