Personality Pathways - MyersBriggs Criticism, Cheerleading, and Negativity - Nightly There is the perception, particularly in American culture, that criticism and negativity go hand-in-hand. We understand well the idea of being in favor or something, or against something, but we don’t particularly understand how criticism fits into this dichotomy. As someone with a penchant for criticism, I’ve often found myself misjudged as “being negative” when mere complaint is furthest from my intention. I’m here to explain myself and people like me. Criticism Is Not Negativity The reason a person is critical of a thing is because he is passionate about that thing. Negativity, in contrast, is not the product of passion. “That sucks” is negativity.

A critic can certainly reduce her criticism to “good” or “bad”, but there’s far more context and nuance at work.
Welcome to Personality Type! Below are four questions, and descriptions of two different lists of personality "preferences." Both lists have their own strengths and blindspots.

People also use sarcasm as a means of being comedic with groups of friends. Sarcasm is an indirect form of speech intentionally used to produce a particular dramatic effect on the listener (McDonald, 1999, p. 486).

Negative sarcasm, where positively worded utterances convey negative attitudes, is used frequently in everyday language. Sarcasm has been found to be “morphologically simpler and more flexible to use than direct forms” (McDonald, 1999, 487). *Question 2.

So let's look at what you can determine from watching someone else's eyes. Basic Observation If you watch and note what people are watching, along with any reactions they have to what they see, you can learn a lot about them.
