    I'm generally cheerful

    and have an upbeat personality. I'm very optimistic about the future and see each day as a new chance to get things right. I like to think that I'm a source of positivity to those who need it, but I suppose that's for others to decide.

    Optimistic, yes but not the happy-go-lucky kind.

    Everything should be pre-planned with me and things that happen quickly and need quick decision making will find me confused, silent or slow. i very much welcome new things, but I take my own time to assimilate them prefectly. I love change but sudden and swift changes are not...

    Being open minded is not judging a different perspective to your own and being open to new ideas knowing there's always more to learn or a new perspective to gain.
