    I'm an optimist from my perspective, but there's probably many others who would disagree.

    So I'm like Asocial one, basicly.

    Sounds familiar.

    Also I don't change over time. I stand where I stand.

    I think being an optimist is really beneficial to one's life. First off, you're happier, secondly shaking negativity off is great because you're not as upset or intimidated in the future.

    I think I turned into an optimist just to piss off my father.

    Damned reactionary teenager habits.

    I am afriad you have one hole in your logic.
    Which is that pessmists are necessarily unhappy becuse they don't think there will be a good outcome.


    Someone couild even say that pessimsts are playing their cards quite well.
    Since things can turn our right or they(pessimists) will be right all along (what can make them happy)
    But for this to work you have to be quite philosophycal person.

    Yeah, pessimism works for me.

    What I do is I see the absolute worst in a situation, and I strive to avoid that. I guess you could call that being a pessimist. In a way I sort of expect that worst to happen, but at the same time I try very hard to make it not happen.

    I would describe myself as a gloomy optimist. I'm unhappy with myself and my life, and I doubt things are going to get much better, but at the same time I try to make the best of what I have, look (occasionally) at the bright side, and never give up hope.
