According to psychology, we are always drawn to negative over positive

Most news we see and hear which is negative, and replete with disasters, terrorism, crime and corruption. If you begin off thinking you will mess up a task, the possibilities are that you will. You may not try hard enough to achieve success, you won’t attract support from other people, and you may not observe any results as good enough.

Is the media negative?

Media studies point that bad news far outweighs good news by as much as negative news reports for behind every one good news report. Why? The answer may lie in the work of evolutionary psychiatrists and neuroscientists. Humans try to seek out news of dramatic, negative events.

Many investigations have shown that we care more about the threat of bad things that we do about the prospect of good things. Our negative brain is more sensitive than our positive triggers. And each time we experience fear we turn on our stress hormones. In essence, negative and unexpected things happen all the time in the world.

Does hearing good news or bad news first really matter?

Overall, we like to get changing sequences of news (bad news first) because the last thing you hear changes your mood. So, if you are prompted to act on the bad feedback by making changes in your behaviour. It is better to focus on what is wrong and to hear it last.

According to positive psychiatrists, we can change our habits, and we can focus on the glass being half-full. When we take new habits, our brains acquire “mirror neurons”. This develops a positive attitude that can flow to other people like a virus.

Shree Radhe guru Maa says, “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.”
