  • I wouldn't say I'm one or the other fully. I'd say most people are a combination of all 3 depending on their current mood and situation. I'd say I'm in the middle of the optimist and realist glasses

  • i would probably call myself a 'neutralist'. I tend to look on the bright side when things are going badly, and contemplate the worst that could happen when things are going well.

  • I am realist. I see matter as an empty space and the interaction done thanks to repeling forces in EM field (electrons in atoms).
    And I tend to look on reality as it is. And…it's kind of shitty. Thinks in nature are designed to kill you, you wouldn't survive anywhere in the unverse, you'll…you know…die, so…that's kind of sucks.
    Some might say, that there are plenty of nice things too. Sure, they are. Like tech, sleep, and so on. But…what do I do wit them? I'm glad they are here, but when I want to actually do something, I need some problem to solve. For example, how to design architecture of my app. I have no clue! And that's why I'm trying to force myself to work on that. You solve problems, you eliminating bad things: and for that, you need to see them. Be deep in them. To bring better, you must enter the worst.

  • Optimist. Positive thoughts, positive vibes, positive actions, positive results.

    Of course there will be adversity , but with the above , I believe that I will overcome the inevitable adversity.

    Realist doesn't have to be separate from optimistic/pessimistic

  • A realist, definitely. If I can't find a solution with logical thinking though, I try to turn to positive thinking, but I do not always succeed.

  • Realistic. Every person and thing has positive as well as negative sides. We have to take decisions keeping in mind both the sides keeping in mind our objectives.

  • Realist. We innately seek conflict and realism allows a person to be aptly prepared when it arises. Positive and negative thoughts can turn into wild expectation or self-fulfilling prophesy in their own respects.

  • A realist.
    Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
    Trust but verify.
    Make it do or do without.
    And no, I'm not going to do it for you.

    • wow. That's actually a very good way to look at the glass question.

      I always claimed, that "half empty" is the more sensible way to look at it, because it's half way to where you have to refill.
      But you are right, when filling a glass... it does make more sense the other way round.

      I'm gonna steal that from you.

  • I don't get the question. Where's the difference between pessimist and realist? :-P

  • I am a realist in life, my views, and everything in between.
    Most people are babies and cannot handle such honesty.
    I always prefer realism because it will help that person know how to improve, regardless if they can "handle it" or not,
