Angry People Get More Heart Attacks; Nice People Delighted
The reformative news is in for nasty people – and nice people, who often wonder if there is any justice in the world, are delighted.
Studies have shown that those with a personality sometimes called type D, which some say stands for “distressed” but we think should stand for Downright Nasty, have an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Type Downright Nasty individuals are more likely to experience emotions that upset normally nice people, such as hostility, anxiety, anger, depressed mood, tension, and a negative view of themselves. They are also more likely to be on the alert for signs of trouble and overreact to stress.
These unfortunate people frequently lack the ability to express their emotions. Being locked up emotionally leads them to feel tense, insecure, and uncomfortable in social situations, especially compared to easygoing folks who are more likely to relax, tell a joke, and enjoy a sip of wine or get mugged by a beer.
The study suggests that "how people cope with negative emotions may be as important as the experience of negative emotions per se."
So now nice people have a new way to tell downright nasty ones to back off. They can just say, “Can you please stop working on your heart attack?"
