Pessimism and Optimism are interesting in many ways. For example, a pessimist and an optimist are talking about their sports team. The pessimist says "Our team is going to lose, I just know it...". He can never lose as either he was right all along, and his team loses, or his team wins making him happy. The optimist says "Our team is going to win for sure." He can only win in one case, where his team wins. So it is better to be a pessimist if you think about it.

I'm a pessimist, because if things turn out poorly then I'm already braced for it, but if they turn out good it's like 'uber yay! party!'

I think you're disappointed less as a pessimist, and certain things will seem even better when they happen than if you always expect them to.

It's got roughly 300mls in it. It's best, I think, to try to be a realist. You don't get your hopes up too much, and you're generally not *too* negative (because a positive attitude helps). Realism sounds all too often like pessimism, though.

In this day and age, realism almost is pessimism.

There is a difference between being a pessimist and being a doomsayer, though :p

What do you mean in this day in age? You think realism wasn't pessimism being a medeival serf? Being in WWII Europe? People make the mistake of thinking that things/humanity are worse off than they've been before.

Depends on the situation, I cna be pessimistic or simply helluva optimistic.

But most of the time, I realised that optimists are actually hiding their pessimism to others.

I am a pessimist.I always like to think negatively because most of the things that happen to me are negative. I had a Maths test some days ago.I was sure I am going to fail.I spent those days in depression.when the result came out I found out that I passed.

I am a pessimist for life.I know I can't be the thing I want to be.I know sometime in the future I will be cheated.I may end up as a loser in life.
