    depends on how far into the future i can predict. at the time of predicting the future.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    i'm most likely a delusional optimist.

    Hmm, I remember a quote I read a long time back:

    A pessimist is someone who complains about the noise when Opportunity knocks.

    I keep that in mind whenever I am tempted to say to myself 'it can't be done'.

    This being said, as an idealist, I have often been told by others to 'please, be realistic' in my expectations of things and or people...

    So these days, I would call myself a 'cautious optimist'...

    I fluctuate (damned bi-polar!) - I would consider myself an optimist naively so at times, however, when depression has robbed me of my perspective and the colour from life I am a pessimist all the way - it's how I know where I am... Even in my low points though I think "it WILL get better, it HAS to get better" so I guess optimism rules....

    Hey wait, you stole the label I created. No wait, technically I called myself an idealistic pessimist.

    Honestly I'm not quite sure, but this is what I wrote in a previous topic:
