Genes Predispose Some People to Focus On the Negative

Perhaps an ultimate cure for optimism, if caught early enough, is in sight...

Re: Genes Predispose Some People to Focus On the Negative

Oh, how neat. I guess now I can be considered one of "those" dudes who has that weird genetic thing that can't see how amazingly beautiful the life experience is like all the other people.

/yawn

/burp

I wonder if there is a gene that predisposes people to focus disproportionately on the positive things in life? I guess that's just "normal" and everyone that deviates from the obvious fact that life is amazing considered a defect? Or maybe I'm still pissed off that my stupid pumpkin bread is still gooey in the middle after baking and irrationally taking it out on this article. I don't know, but either way........./nomnom

Re: Genes Predispose Some People to Focus On the Negative

Is there any one who doesn't really consider life to be all that great all of the time or all that terrible all of the time?

Personally speaking, it's reality that makes me focus on the negative:-)

Re: Genes Predispose Some People to Focus On the Negative

So you see reality as a totality, not simply a bunch of quasi-related fragments?

Me. Life can be wonderful and can be terrible, but in my experience it's mostly pretty good or tough to deal with, and rarely at the extremes.
