    Grumpy people can get more done in less time as they are less prone to being bothered by other people.

    Have they? I haven't noticed being such a happy and absent-minded person. Or maybe it's all the sunshine I was exposed to growing up in southern california. Tra la laaa, what were we talking about?

    That's a good thing. Other studies have shown that a bad attitude can shorten your life expectancy.

    The explanation is simple - ignorance is bliss. Therefore, those who aren't ignorant tend to be grumpy. The causality is flipped.

    Grumpy people make you grumpy! That's good! When you're grumpy, your face shows it and another person looks at you becomes grumpy too! And when another person looks at that person.. :p

    just because someone is grumpy doesn't necessarily mean that they have a bad attitude...

    HAHA! That is precisely what I was thinking!!! (although - to my wife)

    This would add so much justification to my consistent attitude!

    True. I probably should have said "anger" to be more accurate about the studies. Anger does not equal grumpy either, but they're closely related. Not trying to be technical, just sardonic.
