Someone is calling me an 'Eeyore'

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.
