What are the psychological characteristics that make a person a pessimist, hater, soul destroyer,


naysayer, or otherwise negative? There are people who proverbially rain on everyone's parade. If a person believes h/she can do something & be successful at it, these people will tell them that they can't or that their dreams are too fantastical, even unrealistic. They are more fond of stating the chances of failure whether than success. One can say that such people are highly toxic.
