Why is it that a negative person is perceived as more truthful?
You may really like something and honestly say so. It is likely that you will be seen as sugar-coating, white-lie-uttering, insincere lowlife. If not that, at least you’ll be seen as someone with low standards.
However, a perpetually complaining cry-baby is usually seen as straight-forward, no-bullshit, honest person with really high standards. People strive to please these
jerks difficult people.
Does this make sense to you?
Of course. I agree with your opinion. The scenario I am bringing up is a little different though:
When your *honest reaction* to something is to appreciate, you are seen as a flatterer.
I am sure I have worked with some of these miserable bloaks.
