This is a fascinating observation. I certainly do tend to be attracted to problem solving – as you say, ‘glass half empty’ or perhaps subconsciously looking for what is wrong, or what could go wrong – but I never thought of it in this context before. Do you think there is some relationship between this and the tendency to be attracted to ‘conspiracy theories,’ the paranormal, and mysterious things in general? I mean, some people seem to just buy what the world is selling while others are the opposite and are looking for a conspiracy behind every curtain. ~ JH
