    Red face Optmist or Pessimist ?



    I once read a definition of optimists and pessimists that went.."An optimist smells flowers and immediately looks round for the garden. A pessimist smells flowers and looks for the wreath" ! So are you a garden or a wreath type of person? I hope I`m a "garden" person. :)

    Based on that definition I would definitely be an optimist. However I would consider myself an optimist rooted and grounded in reality.

    I'd definitely say I'm an optimist.

    I focus on the bad stuff in life over the good. That's why I'm a true pessimist. I always see things in a bad way. There is nothing more depressing than pessimistic thinking.

    I think I'm both and it depends on the day and my mood, which changes all the time.

    Pessimist sees dark tunnel ahead. Optimist sees light at the end of tunnel. Realist sees incoming train
