Impact of Negative Thinking

Negative thinking is a pattern or a way of thinking is more inclined on the sides of the negative than the positive side. This mindset can be seen from the beliefs or views that came out, how people behave, and daily behavior. Because of the negative side is more dominant, no wonder if this way of thinking fulfilled a priori attitude, prejudice, mistrust, suspicion, and doubts, who are often without basic or no reason at all.

Negative thought patterns are also evident from the way a person views or respond to problems that often ignore the rationality, logic, facts or relevant information. However, rationality can also be trapped in a negative frame of mind. That is, a person can consciously take advantage of rationality, logic and thinking skills to look at the issue negatively.

The cause of this kind of thinking is the perception that construction is based on belief systems, world views (paradigms), or the way we understand a problem. Because this mindset is paradigmatic, then any data, facts, or information shall in accordance with our perception paradigm adopted. If a paradigm is conflict, then what emerges is conflictual perceptions, both offensively and defensively. Meanwhile, if the paradigm of harmony, the dominant perceptions even more harmonious in character, unify, synthesize, and anti conflict.

In everyone, something by experts of psychology called self defense mechanism, namely a tendency to defend itself from what we perceived as something that attacks or potentially impede the achievement of our desires. One option to defend themselves is by being offensive or attack behind the threatener. Adverse effects of our easy to think negative is the difficulty we accept other people's opinions, it's hard to accept new things, hard to socialize, and often appears as a person who is less attractive for cooperative.

Internal The pattern of negative thinking is not solely focused on the outside world alone. Negativism also works internally or attacks ourselves. This can be seen from the confidence, self-perception, or how our view of ourselves which raises the negative self-image. Example; see ourselves as not talented, has many weaknesses, mentally retarded, or fared less fortunate.

Negative self-image is not a form of self-perception that is formed in an instant. This perception appears and embedded bit by bit, accumulated based on the types of events or life experiences that we experience. For example, in an occasion that we experience the irreverent treatment of a person. On another occasion, again we are treated badly by others. Then within a little while ago, we were again treated not as we expected. So then the question arises within us, “Do I really deserve a treatment like this?“ Then, little by little come the perception that our lives are less fortunate. Perception glance it could become permanent if the frequency of occurrence of underlying events that are often repeated.

This negative self-image and then will make us become a person who is very ineffective and difficult to develop into a better direction. Take the example of self-perception we do not have the talent. This perception could tails on our tendency to not want to explore our hidden talents. In fact we tend to deny the existence of hidden talents earlier, and ultimately make us lazy or reluctant to increase the talent hone our skills. From this mistaken assumption that our self-development process is hampered.
