Optimist or Pessimist? - Page 2

post #31 of 36
I never worry but I am a pessimist, the glass is definitely half empty. I can find the negative in any positive situation.
I never really used to think about it much until my college days, when our class had to do this role play thing, there was a creative person, happy, sad, pessimist and optimist as well as a few others. I was given the role of optimist for the scenario and I had never been so embarrassed, I just could not come up with anything, so my tutor swapped my role to pessimist and BOOM I was away laughing. It kinda worked out anyway coz the person who was supposed to be the pessimist also couldn't come up with anything til our roles ere changed.

Scott says I'm pessimistic, but I don't worry about small stuff. I DO however, obsess about the major stuff when it does come up if there isn't an immediate result known.

I'm reasonable...I think.

Same here. Some days, the sun shines & I just can't see it.

A little OT, but I so read the thread title as "Optometrist(as in eye doctor)", not optimist.

I used to be super-optimistic....then I realized I was just being naive. I'm 25 and still completely naive about soooo many things, but have gotten *A LOT* better over the past two years.

So now, I'm for sure a pessimist.

I'm hoping there's a middle-ground that you find as years progress and life mellows out a bit more.

Pessimism gave me an ulcer and caused my depression.
Rx drugs and always seeing the silver lining have helped me greatly.

I also stopped watching the news, which helped tons.
