Similarly, the term undergoes a slight change to mean poles apart – ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ habits.

The positive and negative habits about a person will tell you about the kind of personality they have. Even though the negative habits are out of one’s control in most cases, positive habits are difficult to inculcate. Negative habits take work to outgrow.
