Answer for question 4434.

Do you generally consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist? Have you always been the same one, or has your viewpoint switched back and forth as time goes by?
I'm a realist - it's both half empty and half full. And I'd better be on top of things if I'm thirsty.

These days, I'm happy if there's anything left in the glass at all.

I too believe I'm a realist and also a devil's advocate. I see things as they are but love to take the opposite stance if needed.

I think I am more of an optimist these days than I ever have been. It's weird. I think I used to be a pessimist. I'd believe everything would go wrong, worry, etc. However, when I see other people being pessimistic I do everything in my power to try to turn that around. I am a listener and a helper. I want people to be happy. This has made me more optimistic in general.
