    • Abstract:
      Negativity bias is a term used to describe the tendency humans have toward focusing on negative information and events more than on positive ones. Negativity bias is a widely accepted phenomenon in psychology and other social sciences, such as economics. Many different psychological studies have provided evidence that supports negativity bias. Negativity bias affects people of all ages and backgrounds, even infants, but elderly populations may have reduced negativity bias. Negativity bias affects mood and emotions. It can also affect relationships and even society as a whole. Some psychologists believe that people who understand and know to look for negativity bias can help themselves and others recognize and correct the phenomenon.
