or you can have a very astute ability to pick up emotions and sense passive aggression in your wifes statement that children may not be familiar with yet
As a rule it relates to hyperarousal- a highly activated sympathetic nervous system, with low parasympathetic activity biases your perceptions- so you are more likely to see negativity in others.

This is well covered in current neurological theory-- see Polyvagal Theory by Prof Stephen Porges.

There are lots of things you can do to address this balance- relaxation exercises, yoga, meditation. Most recently I have been using a TENS machine modified to clip to my ear and act as a Vagus (parasympathetic) nerve stimulator.
