Why We Love Bad News

The bias of negative news over positive. Negative news has a stronger impact on our minds than positive news. Details how this "brain bias" impacts our daily emotions, and why it exists in the first place



Why do insults once hurled at us stick inside our skull, sometimes for decades? Why do political smear campaigns outpull positive ones?

The answer is, nastiness makes a bigger impact on your brain.

And that, says Ohio State University psychologist John T. Cacioppo, Ph.D., is due to the brain's "negativity bias": your brain is simply built with a greater sensitivity to unpleasant news. The bias is so automatic that it can be detected at the earliest stage of the brain's information processing.

...

Other researcher have found the same thing. It is the frequency of small positive acts that matters most, in a ratio of about 5 to 1.

Interestingly, occasional large positive experiences—say, a big birthday bash—are nice, but they don't make the necessary impact on our brain to override the tilt to negativity. It takes frequent small positive experiences to tip the scales toward happiness.

Which is why almost every local news cast has a 'something good' feature.  Anything to up the mood.

My little fruit and veg market was closed while the owner went back to China for a 2 week holiday which ended up being a month because he had to self-quarantine for 2 more weeks. It must have been really tough to lose that much business. He seemed upbeat to be open again and people were making a point of welcoming him back and checking in that he was going ok. I love living here.
