Why are these completely unacceptable in the workplace and our society? Why do some people have such a disdain for these traits so much?

Pessimism and negativity are consequences, not desires.

Some people feel these are symptoms of a kind of mental dis-ease. I prefer not to be around pessimism and negativity, especially at work. These mental states are contagious and I find them draining and unproductive. Sure there are negative situations, but to truly be able to deal with that situation, you cannot be in a negative and pessimistic frame of mind. So when people realize this, they strive to achieve control over these mental states for the benefit of themselves and others.

Because there is no hope or love behind it and it gives cause to doubt the purpose of the workplace and society??? Or maybe because it fosters freedom of thought??
