If I may add more:
- those who abuse their power
- those who hold a grudge
- those who cannot be trusted
- those who abuse freedoms (financeguy's example inspired this bit)
- those who are unwilling to empathize

When I first glanced at this I thought you posted "unwilling to emphasize" and all I could imagine is that you were brought down by women who don't wear push up bras.

It was good for a laugh anyway.

A nice smile is a little more important...

politicians who believe that human rights are only conferred by majority rule.

I must say that Interference has an unusually high percentage of very nice, uplifting people. I can almost always find something to smile about here.

I often wonder if I'm prone to being down more than others. I've spent my time on anti-depresents and will never go back on them.

Like Bono says;
You should worry about the day
That the pain it goes away
You know I miss mine sometimes
seriously, as a child i would cry if i didn't get my own way. i didn't car what anyone else though

a short list:

people who only see the negative in life, who play the victim
self-centred, wilfully ignorant people
people with no sense of humour
the west's long history of paying lip service to human rights but never putting the money where their mouths are
needless pain and suffering
my bad habit of procrastination
snowstorms in april

there are things that make me angry, and then there are things that bring me down. i get angry A LOT, but rarely am i "brought down."

the election however stands out most for me. and this goes for anything-i put my heart and soul and labor into it only to see it gone in a matter of hours. that brought me down further than i've ever been...but i've since bounced back.
in that same vein, getting a bad grade on something that i thought i had done well.
as U2kitten said, any sort of abuse, animal or human.

I work in for one of the poorest school districts in CA. It brings me down everyday when I see that there aren't books for students or certified teachers or lab supplies or windows in classrooms or test prep materials, etc. When I see military recruiters come to the school once a week vs. colleges that come once a year.

Of course, there are rewards that keep me going. It warms my heart when a student runs up smiling showing me a passing grade or when a homeless student shows up at school.

It makes me very angry and sad that we don't make public education a priority. Our children are precious and quality education should be a basic right in our wealthy country.

Other things that bring me down? Animal/human abuse and all the isms (racism, sexism, classism, etc....)

Lately, it's not being able to live up to my own expectations.
