Do You Believe: Negative Attitudes are Contagious?

I do, although not all the time. I have been into different organizations and I observe that some negative attitujdes of hard t0 please individuals sometimes contaminate others who were then very fine before such interactions. I also observe that this people got 'infected' because of either influence, peer pressure or the necessity to belong to a group or someone. It's so sad to see beautiful souls get infected by rough, harsh, mean, and unreasonable beings.

Yes, they are. If people see enough individuals take part in such a behavior then they just think that it's okay. If people see someone successful and powerful through these negative attitudes, then they just might try and engage in such attitude. Also, I really don't like to be around someone who is always pouting and miserable all the time because it dampens my spirit too. So if I feel that I'm that pouting and miserable, then I try to keep myself out of the public as I don't want to spread such negativity. Thanks, mjmlagat!

Hi I think negative attitudes are contagious. If negative attitude is strong enough to create a negative environment, certainly it'll affect all others. Environment plays an important role in shaping our minds. But I would like to hope that there must be someone who would lead to change the negative environment. If negative attitude is contagious, i believe positive attitude too is contagious. But if an organization, is filled with negative vibes, it's a very difficult situation.
