Dear Poll: Are You a Skeptic?

Even if you're not a Debbie Downer per se, being a bit skeptical from time to time can be a good thing. We all know that getting prematurely excited about something can leave you disappointed, but then again, being too cynical can lead to downplaying things that deserve legitimate enthusiasm.

Are you the kind of person who's automatically on the defense about anything from love to career, or is your first instinct to go out on a limb and take a chance, no matter what the circumstance? I like to think I fall somewhere in the middle, but tell me: Do you consider yourself to be skeptical by nature?

No. By nature, I'm an optimist.

I find the older I get, the more skeptical I am. It's all part and parcel of being an optimistic idealist early in life.

I'm very skeptical, but at least I'm willing to do the research to find out if my feelings are actually founded or if I could possibly take the risk.

Depends. It mostly goes with my gut feeling; I can be optimistic and take a chance however I have to feel that it is right. Most of the time I have to urge to be a skeptic and to not let myself get to excited/hopeful which worked in my favor since I found out later on that I would have been majorly let down. Gut feelings are almost always correct.

I am definitely a mixed bag on this. My radar is pretty good as to when go to out on a limb and when to be skeptical, so I usually trust my gut.
