Thought It Would Be Higher..


You Are 36% Cynical

Generally you give people the benefit of the doubt. But there are exceptions.

You buy into many of the things that mainstream society believes, but you're not anybody's fool.


The description is about right, but I expected the percentage to be higher at first.  

I think my cynicism has decreased after a close friend of mine and I both read "the secret"...I thought it was a load of crap, but she helped me look at it in a different way.  Basically, she said not to take it too literally, and that it is a good book because it teaches us to be more positive, and it's easier to be happy if we're positive.  

After dealing with severe depression for almost two years, I remembered what she had said, and made more of an effort to be more positive.  I'll tell you now, it wasn't easy.  It took several months of practice, but now, I find it easier to be more positive and I definitely feel better than I did a year and a half ago when I was going through my depression.  

So although I question a lot of what is going on in the world, I choose to believe that there is some good out there.  Call it stupid, but it makes me feel a little better.
