  1. @rajiv, that is up to you to define. If you don’t think you are either an optimist or a pessimist, what are you then? If “something else” has no meaning to you, then you are unlikely to be “something else”.

    Me, I am “something else”. (Since this topic is not relevant to my blog, I’ll post my thought here, perhaps to inspire someone else’s post…)

    I don’t give a damn whether the glass is “half-full” or “half-empty”…. I believe in free refills!

      LOVE THAT!


  2. i’m both. i have bipolar disorder so therefor i feel the extreem downs & also i feel the extreem highs


  3. I’m pretty positive that I’m a pessimist. I can be fairly positive towards other people because I want what’s best for them, but -‘ve never really been the “happy go lucky” type.


  4. Realist. When you shovel animal muck most days, you’re way beyond both optimism and pessimism. It is what it is. There’s no point in hoping it will go away, because it won’t. There’s no point in grumbling about it being never ending, because it never does. Life’s the same. Just bend those knees, swing that shovel and keep dishing it out. Hmm, just like my blog, too. πŸ˜€


  5. Olha eu já estive mais otimista, mas no momento não estou não. Luto tanto para conseguir algo, que fico esgotada, agora nesse momento estou pessimista, e desanimada.
    Abraços Mina!!!!


  6. Realists for the win! πŸ™‚ Great topic. But I still have some venting and reality TV show to do πŸ˜›


  7. Interesting question which I thought about all morning as I was going about my business. The answer was right in front of me – otherwise I’d not be doing all this. Optimism rules!!!
