“We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.” — Abraham Lincoln

You are generally positive about most people and most situations. Some people are negative about everything and everyone or unpredictably negative about things. You can’t tell when or where they are going to be in a snit about something or someone. Alternatively, the few things and people about whom you are negative are clearly known and predictable. There are few surprises.

There is a significant advantage to being generally positive and predictably negative. Negativity is energy draining and inhibits intuition. Being mostly positive avoids the downside of being negative. Further, knowing when and what people and circumstances prompt negativity lessens the emotional drain and makes it easier to manage the bad vibes so as to minimize the suppressing affect on intuition. You know that the cost of negativity is too high to tolerate beyond that which can’t be avoided.
