Scientists hypothesize that there is a general bias towards negative entities (e.g., events, objects, personal characteristics) based on innate tendencies and experiences. This article mainly studies why our brain has negative bias and how we can overcome it. At present, psychologists have studied the relationship between the brain and negative bias, the factors that affect the strength of negative bias, and the threat of negative bias to health. For example, when you drive to work, someone interrupts you when you get off the highway. Suddenly, a car rushes out and you slam on the brake. It’s enough to make you feel terrible all day. So, why does cutting off a small thing have such a big impact on us? Why does a negative experience ruin a good day? According to the research, scientists come to the conclusion that the tendency that we are more likely to record negative events, and we put forward suggestions to overcome negative bias from many aspects is named negative bias. In this case, it is important for us to know about negative bias. In this article, we mainly explain and study what negative bias is; why people have negative prejudice from perspective of gene, people development, and brain response; the impact on us of negative bias in relationships with others, anxiety, decision making, and perception of others; and how to overcome it.
