I saw this and was thinking about the Dark Night.

The Upside of Being Down

Some of the benefits:

Better memory: Those put in a negative mood are less vulnerable to forming false memories by incorporating misinformation.

Better judgment accuracy: Negative moods eliminate primacy effects, halo effects based on appearance, and vulnerability to the fundamental attribution error.

Reduced gullibility: Negative moods increase people’s ability to detect deception and reduce their acceptance of urban myths and rumors.

Reduced stereotyping: A negative mood has reduced reliance on stereotypes.

Strengthened motivation: A negative mood increases the reward value of expected future achievement and also reduces self-handicapping.

Enhanced social sensitivity: A negative mood leads to more cautious and polite interactions and communication.

Increased fairness: A negative mood increases focus on external fairness norms, which diminishes selfishness.

Greater persuasiveness: Those put in a negative mood produce higher-quality and more persuasive arguments.

Hum, it's kinda like a bad mood is a type of sobriety and a good mood is a type of intoxication. Very interesting.
