Someone is calling me an 'Eeyore' [Dec. 28th, 2002|12:54 am]

[mood |cynicalcynical]

Like Eeyore the donkey of A. A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories, those with dysthymic temperament view the world through gray spectacles. They are the proverbial "half-empty glass" class. Their introversion often creates an atmosphere of social phobia, and the tendency to be guilt-ridden makes them conscientious, loyal, and, therefore, desirable employees. This proclivity toward a work orientation may strain relationships already made tenuous by the anergia and passivity integral to the temperament.
