Admit it, no almost always trumps yes.
We are in love with limiting our life's experiences by saying NO.
We trained in the art: no NO!
-------( ( NO ) )-------
It's a power thing. Think of a situation where you are excited about something, "Hey, there is an art opening tonight at... and I thought..." and the other person says, "No, not into it."
Almost inevitably yes is hard pressed to pull a no out of the can.
There is much power in NO.
Can we acknowledge that this is usually so?
No is the stomper-upon - most of us learn this type of stomping-upon young.
I think we are almost conditioned to be this way, at the least most of us grow up cautiously skeptical, which has been shown to be a gateway leading to NO.
