There are basically three types of people. Those who value positive emotions, those who value negative emotions, and those who value flat emotions.

Part of it is cultural you might say. You might say that Koreans tend to value negative emotions, or that Americans value positive emotions. But it's not all cultural. Many Koreans value positive emotions, while many Americans value negative emotions.

emotions001_400Positive emotions in general

When someone values positive emotions, they tend to repress their negative emotions, although their negative emotions might occasionally come to the surface.

That is, you will see people who value positive emotions laugh a lot, smile a lot, give lots of words of encouragement, they will tend to speak of people positively, and will tend to look at the bright side of objects, events and ideas.

Flat emotions in general

When someone values flat emotions, they tend to repress both their positive and their negative emotions, and tend to hint at positive or negative emotions rather than express them plainly.

That is, people who value flat emotions will tend to neither smile nor frown, will tend to control their laughter, and will tend not to pass value judgments on people, objects, events or ideas.

Note that there are two types of people with flat emotions. Those who tend to bend on the positive side of emotions but hide their positive emotions, while there are those who tend to lean on the negative side of emotions, yet hide those emotions.

Negative emotions in general

When someone values negative emotions, they tend to repress their positive emotions, although their positive emotions might occasionally surface.

That is, you will see people who value negative emotions frown a lot, get angry very often and when they smile or laugh, it is often at the expense of a negative event someone is experiencing. Those who value negative emotions will tend to only show positive emotions when a person, an object, an event or an idea has negative traits. That is they only laugh at failure, and they tend to be jealous at success.

Emotions in a couple

Are you someone who tends to value positive emotions and dating someone who values negative emotions. I've been in a relationship like that. Or are you someone who values flat emotions and dating someone with positive or negative emotions?

When two people who value positive emotions date, their relationship tends to last. They tend to value and encourage each other, and tend to be one mind about all the positive they see around them.

When two people with flat emotions date, that can last as well, although they will tend to throw hints at each other rather than clearly express their emotions.

When two people with negative emotions date, there tends to be a lot of fighting and arguing, a lot of anger management issues, but eventually they tend to agree on all the negative side of things.

When someone who values positive emotions dates someone who values flat emotions, the person with positive emotions tends to be frustrated by having to read the other person's emotions, while the person with flat emotions tends to be frustrated by the lack of restraint the person with positive emotions displays.

When someone who values negative emotions dates someone with flat emotions, the person with flat emotions tends to be frustrated with the lack of restraint on anger and negativity the person with negative emotions has, while the person with negative emotions tends to be frustrated by having to read between the lines of their flat emotions partner.

When a person with positive emotions dates someone with negative emotions, they tend to rarely agree on anything. I've been in that position before. The person with positive emotions tries to look at the bright side of things, while the person with negative emotions will shift the focus from the bright side to a darker side. The person with positive emotions tends to apologize when the person with negative emotions gets angry, yet no amount of fixing satisfies the person with negative emotions.

At the workplace

A worker with positive emotions will tend to look at the bright side while working. They will smile a lot, tend to see the bright side of customers, tend to see the bright side of co-workers, and get the work done with a smile. However, if they see negativity around them, they might not last long on the job.

A worker with flat emotions will tend to get the work done without saying a word or showing an ounce of emotions. They will fix what needs to be fixed, do what needs to be done and will go home without showing any emotions. They tend not to resign, and tend to internalize all the positivity or negativity around them.

A worker  with negative emotions will tend to look at the dark side of the job. They will show negative emotions to clients, co-workers, and in some cases, even their boss. If they share the workplace with people with negative emotions, they can last on the job. But if their boss is the positive kind, they might lose their job soon enough.

Why all this matters

A lot of positive people end up with negative people and the cohabitation tends to be very complicated. When hiring people or dating someone, you want to make sure the person you are hiring matches your emotions. Are you the positive kind and about to hire or date the negative kind? Or are you the negative kind and about to hire or date the positive kind. Or are you the flat emotions kind and about to hire or date someone positive or negative. All that can have a positive or negative impact on your life or career.
