People who always have to point out others flaws. people who are always complaining about something. people who have to find the dark cloud in a sky of white ones..what is your opinion of people like this? what do you think their problem is?

They make me tired and not interested in what is said. I prefer to be nice and easy going. I'm not that way when I get upset or mad. I can go off under the right circumstances. I'm just not a confrontational person to begin with. I don'tlike fighting and arguing or being down on anyone. I've seen enough of this in my lifetime. It's better to just get along.

Oh almost forgot, the reason some other do differently they just like to stir up the pot so to speak. They like seeing other people upset or miserable.

Haha, I'm the kind of person who would "find a dark cloud in a sky of white ones" but I'm a cheerful cynic. =P I don't think I'm the type of person who is always criticizing others. I've been told by a lot of people that I'm one of the least judgmental people that they know. I think people want to point out flaws because they want to be better than others.

Everytime I get around someone that is always complaining about something are others. I like to turn things around. I was talking with one today that was complaining about his car. Telling me that one of the lights went out, and he has a leak in the radiator. That he had to fix, and the had to fix an oil leak. I told him "Look at it this way when you get done fixen everything you will have a new car" When they are complaining about a person, I tell them at least they are trying to do better.

I always think that how one sees the world is a reflection of how one feels inside. If one keep on criticizing other people, it's a sign, i think of low self esteem. The only way they could feel better themselves is to put others down. It could be a sign of unresolved anger too. So bottomline, those kind of people are a mess. I had a friend who is always too depressed and I realized that her feelings stems from living alone and from failing to see the joy of simply being be. She can't understand why I want solitude when she was always craving for more people and activities. I also used to call her a the bringer of gloom because was just so gloomy all the time. It's when I started paying more attention to her and introducing her to my wide network of friends that she started to lighten up. I guess acceptance and feeling loved and having a strong social support do make one happier and stronger.

I try to stay away from negative discussions although sometimes it cannot be avoided. This discussion sounds like a complaint to me. Cheers!!

i think life for these people must be very hard.nothing in this world is perfect.these people just see the dark side or unpleasant side of people or things happened around them.why not change the angles they look at the world?if they try to become more optimistic and generous,i believe they will live happier.

They irritate the he$$ out of me! I think they are angry about other things and want to carry on thinking it will help make they feel better. I really think they must have a terrible inferiority complex and by ragging on others they can somehow feel better about themselves.

It can be such a downer. there is a woman cashiere at a local store who is always complaining about how tired she is, how over worked, how bored, how pained etc etc. I try to give her a solution or a happy perspective but it is quickly squashed. Some people, I think, are not happy unless they are complaining. Their joy is in their missery I guess.

It is human nature for others to criticize. Now I am not saying everyone has a right to judge, etc. And there are people who live such miserable lives that everything they say is negative and ultimately they want to bring everyone down...well they are the premier guest at their pitty party. And probably the only one. I am not perfect and I do criticize when I think something is not correct or is flawed in a way. Plus, it just opens for discusssion if you are discussing something with an adult. As for the other type I mentioned: insecurity.

It's not their problem. It's the problem of how our mind works and processes emotions. It's due to some weakness that has transformed into fear and they have taken that weakness so strongly that it has built a barrier between their natural happy state and themselves. They're always pushing hard to break that jinx and with every unsuccessful attempt there is more desperation, meaning more trouble for themselves and for the society. I think the only way out is to be offer them genuine love lack of which brings out the beast inside us.

every coin has two sides .i hate them for they will put me in trouble .but sometimes i have to admit they give me a big help .we can coreect our mistakes after they point out .we will never have the same mistake next time .are they have some problems ? i don't think so . i think it is determined by the disposition .and disposition is determined by the environment around them. the environment can change a person .maybe they have the problem now .but they may be another person after some time .

People who always complain and criticize others have attitude problem and that's a big problem that will affect themselves and others. If they continue doing that and no one objects or others permit them to do that, they will not realize that they are doing something wrong. The people around them will suffer because they are the ones who accept all the complains and criticisms. It's better to confront them than do nothing because they will keep doing it. I think maybe they have experienced some things before that they couldn't accept and bring out all the angst in their hearts to others by being mean to others.

They add some spice to life even though at times they can be annoying. They act as a reality check for us. Many of us fail to see our own weaknessess. If taken from a positive angle their words can spur us to improve ourselves and become better people. They may have other reasons which are not originally meant to motivate us like thinking that they are always better than other people, scaring us into doing whatever they want us to do, and just to rile people up. Ignore them and we may not improve ourselves. Take their words as pointers and see whether what they say have any truth or not. If there is then we can make a decision to remain happy the way we are or try to make some changes. In summary these individuals may have an attitude problem but I see them as helpers in our life journeys. all the best, rosdimy
