Do you tend to use more positive or more negative descriptions of other people? Interestingly, new research has shown that what you say about other people says a lot about you.

" How positively you see others is linked to how happy, kind-hearted and emotionally stable you are, according to new research by a Wake Forest University psychology professor...."

It makes perfect sense!

I've noticed that in friends and in myself. People who are happy and who are self-confident see thing through happier eyes. People who are unhappy notice the negative things, or interpret things (including people) through a negative light.

And let's not talk about those who are jealous... they always see something to be jealous about. Ugh!
