Dear Poll: Are You an Optimist or a Pessimist?

It's an eternal question and one of the most telling adjectives you can use to describe someone's personality. So tell me, are you a glass half full or a glass half empty kind of gal?

i can be positive (rarely) and i can be negetive (most of the time) lol. but what i think comes true most of the time. like, if i think that my friend is dating a bad guy, it turns out true.

glass half full... glass half empty. (My dad and) I have always said the glass is just twice as big as it needs to be ;)

Also...I agree about expecting and preparing for the worst, but praying for the best. I'm not religious, but boy, do I hope!

I want to consider myself a realist, but I know I'm a hopeless romantic (definitely optimistic in that department), and people closest to me say I'm a pessimist. So, I said I was a bit of both. I strive to be a realist, though!

Haha, I asked my friend this question in art class when we were younger and she was just like "Who cares?! Let's make Kool-Aid!" And that has been my answer ever since. :P

I was voted "Class Pessimist" in our yearbook senior year of high school. I thought it was funny.

I try to be a realist in some situations but lean towards the optimist. Like you, Kathleen, I find I don't become dissapointed when things don't work out. Less stress and anxiety is best- I don't want fine lines in 20 years! I'm fighting them hard and I think attitude helps!

My mother always told me to "Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst." I don't think I hope for the best - I just think I'm doomed in any situation! And then it usually turns out more than ok.

Optimist. I always look for the good in things and people and have a happy overall disposition. I am usually not disappointed though when things do go wrong. I just shrug it off and continue my optimism towards other things.

I'm an optimistic realist. I tend to look at the situation overall, and I know when to have which perspective.

i'm pretty pessimistic. especially since i got this new job that's slowly making me insane. i think i just naturally expect the worst with things. i should start yoga or something positive like that. props to the realists and optimists :) i swear that saying, "life's a bitch, then you die" goes through my mind at least once a week.
