Is the glass half empty for you, or half full?

I'm a little bit of both. It comes and goes. I try really hard to be an optimist, though.

More of a realist. This is how it is and we can do this about it.

I think I have times when I'm a massive pessimist, and times when I'm a big optimist.

The glass isn't half full or half empty it just has water in it. I guess that makes me a realist or neutralist. I dunno.

I am utterly optimistic. I have very few 'down' days, and when I do they usually hit pretty hard. But most of my days are about seeing the good things. :D

Depends on my mood, the day, what else is going on, and what the issue is

When it comes to things about myself I'm usually a pessimist, but when it comes to things about others I'm usually an optimist

I'm definitely an optimist. I have down days like everyone else, but ultimately I'm blissfully happy just about all the time. :) Getting my anxiety under control (via medication, mostly) was a huge step in that direction. Life is good :jess:

More of a pessimist, although I also try hard to not be needlessly pessimistic... and as a result I still find myself being too optimistic about things sometimes.

Optimism and pessimism are about how you think things are going to be in the future, not how you think they are now. You can think things are extremely awful, and still be optimistic, or think things are extremely great, and still be a pessimist.

There is no "realism" in this discussion; it's a matter of how you project the future to be. If you think it's "more of the same" then whether you're an optimist or pessimist depends on what you think of "now." You could be neutral, I suppose, and think that things are neutral now and will always be that way.

I'm a pessimist with certain things or projects but for life in general I am an eternal optimist.

I force myself to be an optimist.

If I were to be pessimistic, I'd drown in depression and probably go shoot myself.

"Trust in God, but lock your car." I'm generally quite optimistic but despite that, like to take every precaution. Those precautions tend to help me avoid bad situations, which is perhaps why I'm an optimist.

I plan for the worst and hope for the best. Optimist, even if I wallow in worry at times.

I'm always optimistic about everything, and it never let's me down.

Whenever I gripe, its just exaggerated for comical effect.

I start off trying to be optimistic, but life has turned me pretty pesimistic. Sometimes I think it's better that way as I'll never be too disappointed if I expected it, only pleasantly surprised.

Depends. When it comes to life, I'm surprisingly optimistic. When it comes to people, however, I tend to be pretty pessimistic.

I'm quite half optimistic and half pessimistic. I kind of lean towards Murphy's Law sometimes.

If anything can happen, it will happen.

Albeit I do my best to glance at the lighter side of circumstances. :lol:

Kind of both. It varies with my mood swings. :D
