What about sentences that end with "non."

In this context, is a sentence that ends with "non" (like "Tu as faim, non ?") considered a positive or negative question? I am guessing it is positive, and that an affirmative answer would be made with "oui" instead of "si."

This relates to:
Using 'si' instead of 'oui' to disagree with a negative question or statement -

Bonjour Don, Je suis d'accord avec vous. Le «non» fait la phrase interrogative; pourtant, Tu as faim est affirmative. J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait. Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière et qui a été utilisé par le monde français depuis l’époque d’Hugues Capet
