Every cloud has a silver lining.  The sun illuminating the edges of every cloud (except at night) reminds us that every difficult situation has a bright side.  I find people who have this outlook to be very easy to work with since they can put a positive and productive spin on any situation.  Those who choose the negative "Eeyore" attitude make getting through difficult tasks frustrating, but sometimes their gloomy disposition can help find "worst case scenarios".  If you can get the right balance of personalities on your team then you have a better chance of success.  It will also make for some pretty interesting moments when the hyper-positive person has a meltdown with the dark side.  Interpersonal human relationships are so complex that science has been studying them for centuries and the only thing that has come out of it is a bunch of theories.  Somehow we get along as a society despite all of our differences.  Are you a plus or a minus?
