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.

    Exactly. I also would like to add the following: low self-esteem and that word envy. They have a fear of those who they feel will outsucceed them so they mentally sabotage the former by prognosticating how they won't succeed in their endeavors.
