Do you think positive or negative?

A friend of mine always seems to think negatively about people. She sees a guy running along the road with no shirt and he's a dirty old man. She see a guy walking along the road wearing dirty clothes and he's a bum. I looked at the guy running and thought "Wow, dude is serious about fitness, but he really could be wearing a shirt" I looked at the other guy wearing dirty clothes and thought "He had a rough day at work" She had negative comments about almost everyone she thinks looks a bit different. Are you more postive or more negative with your thoughts?

  • I'm more positive. I really can't stand being around someone who is negative all of the time. They just drag you down.

  • I do have a friend like that- she sees the worst in every situation, I on the other hand always try to see the best. I'm working on her though, trying to get her to look for the good before the bad!

  • this one depends I'm not always the first one to think positive but I think your friend might be a little harsh or some of the things she says yes. The guy walking with dirty clothes I would probably think he is a bum as well but the "dirty old man" is probably just hot and took his shirt off I think sometimes your friend seems to be a little close minded

  • it honestly depends on my mood and the day I've had. I'm a positive and nice person by nature but there are times when I've caught myself thinking and sometimes saying negative things about people i don't know.
