I doubt that it has to do with the language. We tend to make nice in our social interactions, and probably elsewhere. Positivity natually shows up. I can't see how anyone could say that there is a positive bias to English. Pretty mushy data and analysis imho.
The article does not lead to an rock solid conclusion. But I did find this quote to be interesting, a little bit more provocative - "[English] developed in a society that succeeded, there must be many reasons behind that, but one of them ought to be that we communicate with each other in a good way that produces good results,"Its thought provoking.
Yah, that quote is pie in the sky bunkum! what the hell?"Live Science" seems (to me) to be pretty low-grade and fluffy.Just my opinion!('scuse me for contributing a little tart negativity to the language stew! It needs it!)
