Why do we assume the worst?

Recently, I've noticed a pattern in those around me. I encounter situations where people assume the worst. About what? Anything and everything. BUT WHY? Is it conditioning? The good ole nature versus nurture argument. Is this a trait with which we are born OR are we taught to behave this way? Maybe a more important question is, how do we change this pattern of negative thinking?
