charge flows from high potential to low potential or vice versa?give reason

A charge always flow in such a way that it tends to have negative work done(W).
work done by a charge(q) is given as W =
If charge is positive, then work done(W) by the positive charge will be negative if is negative i.e if the potential falls.
Hence a positive charge always flow from higher potential to lower potential.
Now, If charge is negative, then work done(W) by the negative charge will be negative if is positive i.e if the potential rises.
Hence a negative charge always flow from lower potential to higher potential.

- if we rubbed comb in hair and then we brought near paper then we see they get attract each other ,so in that case comb is negative or positive charge ?
- charge of electron is negative but in solving numericals why we take charge of the electron POSITIVE?????
