Self-Confidence

Attitudes associated with healthy levels of grounded self-confidence. This includes elements such as humility whereby an individual can see themselves in a realistic light to avoid delusional overconfidence.

Social Positivity

Attitudes that are friendly and compassionate towards others. Social positivity also includes the enthusiastic embrace of social processes such as friendship or collaboration.

Emotional Positivity

Emotions are frames of mind that color all thoughts for a period of time. Where these are positive you tend to look for the good and potential in people and situations.

Intellectual Positivity

Attitudes that benefit open, constructive, cooperative, honest and adaptable thinking.

Toxic Positivity

Toxic positivity is a negative behavior that resembles positivity. This involves an inability or unwillingness to deal with any negativity. For example, dismissing valid and thoughtful critical thinking as being complaining or disloyalty to the views of a group.

Discussion

A positive attitude should not be confused with compliance to a particular environment or activity. For example, someone who is in a playful mood who intelligently ignores some drab and uninspiring lesson but is nonetheless in a positive frame of mind.
Positive attitudes can produce negative behaviors. For example, confidence that extends into overconfident, delusional or arrogant behavior.
A positive attitude doesn't imply that an individual is social, engaged and talkative. For example, creative quiet reflection is a fully positive type of attitude.
