Abstract. We introduce the concept of non-positive operators with respect to a fixed operator defined between two real normed linear spaces. Significantly, we observe that, in certain cases, it is possible to study such type of operators from a geometric point of view. As an immediate application of our study, we explicitly characterize certain classes of non-positive operators between particular pairs of real normed linear spaces. Furthermore, we present a complete characterization of smooth and strictly convex Radon planes in connection with non-positive operators.
