In general, the raven embodies a clever bird that can flexibly adapt to its circumstances. He possesses intelligence and learns quickly. Although he has some positive qualities to show, how is it then that the raven is associated with negative associations ?

It is probably due to its black plumage. The color black is seen since eternal times in connection with mischief and darkness. Folklorically, it is probably called an unlucky raven. The appearance of a raven usually symbolizes a warning.
