I think there's a little of both in everyone
I see a lot of optimistic people but I am optimistic too. :)
I think it is an even balance .. you just hear from the pessimistic ones more often .. or should I say more loudly!
Gosh, optimistic..We only live once, so, enjoy, help others, and gain knowledge.
Optimistic..I think I'm one of them. lol
optimists on the outside who run over the pessimists
so more pessimistic
Those who are optimistic are a waning breed.
At least in my area.
No jobs, 1 in 6 lost their home.
seems in daily life optimistic, Yet on the web pessimistic
In the city I live in I see pessimistic people every hour of every day and I dont under stand that as I am an optimistic person and things always work out for me.
Many people feign pessimism, employing a reverse-psychology mechanism which, they believe, will somehow enable them to 'fly under misfortune's radar'.
Even this psychological manoeuvre speaks to our tendency toward optimism. All living organisms, including humans, are relentless in their struggle for survival and the improvement of their circumstances, and will use any trick in the book to succeed. We are inherently optimistic.
Seeing as the world's population is still growing, there's got to be more optimistic people. You know, these arrogant morons who think that life is a gift, that they're the bestest parents ever and that their children will make the world a better place. Yeah, sure. People have been wrong about that for millions of years, but YOU are special, YOU will change it all for the better, right?
