CollaideIDK how someone can talk about "cherry picking" when it comes to the negative attention.
Imagine a scenario where you meet ten people in a day and upon greeting them 9/10 say 'hi' back and 1/10 says 'fuck you', what do you think you're more likely to focus on / remember?
Human brain is biased in that way
This is what I was about to say, not the first time I heard from a public figure who posts on youtube that it doesn't really matter how many positive comments you get, the negative ones get to you and stay with you more.
I also understand as a non-public figure how this is harder to understand or believe but it seems true.
One of the possible explanations to this bias, that I heard, is that this trait stayed with us from the prehistoric days when we as humans had to remember what hurt us so that we avoid it in the future.
