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.
Yes they are envious "dream killers" who quench their thirst with Haterade.
They always have to be the one with a negative comment about anyone is who is riding high at the time. They believe their role in life is to pull everyone down a peg.
Exactly, they are really kill joys. If a person has an idea, they will tell him/her that the idea won't come to fruition. These people exist in a proverbial gray world between lower purgatory and hell.
