Yahallow! Don't know if this is thought provoking or not, but anyways, here are some questions I have for you!

Do you think that people who are optimistic tend to be more successful than others in the course of their life time?
Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
Do you find that optimistic people tend to have more friends than others?
Are most of your friends optimistic?
Would you prefer to hang out with more optimistic people?
Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
Do you think that optimistic people are the "creative" ones in life?
At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
Do pessimists have a better control of their own emotions?
Do you think pessimists can be manipulative? Or is it the other way around?
How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
What music do you think optimists listen to?
What music do you think pessimists listen to?
Is there a difference in physical and mental ability between being an optimist and pessimist?

In your OPINION, do you think the world has more optimists or pessimists? (Can greatly be influenced by the community your living in and what type of media you watch)
Do you believe rich people are optimists or pessimists?

P.S: You don't have to answer all the questions , just ones you feel comfortable answering. What I'm trying to do is provide a more in depth relationship between how you view yourself and the way you act between others as oppose to people you might hate or like. It will also hopefully benefit me greatly by learning what you have to say....because I will have more of a wider variety of people answering. It will also help me see how many people are enjoying their everyday life and if they could do better.

It's probably best to combine all your answers and just put it into one paragraph rather than answering individually to each question.

Do you believe that being optimistic leads to a better, healthier life style?
Maybe sometimes but not always. I tend to think when you are to optimistic you can lead to lying to yourself . If that makes sense.

Do you think that people who are optimistic tend to be more successful than others in the course of their life time?
I don't think it can just be based on that. There are greater and way more factors to have put in before you can say being optimistic made anyone successful.

Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
I tend to be more logical and real with myself but I do still try to see the bright side of things. The sad truth is there isn't always one.

Do you find that optimistic people tend to have more friends than others?
Are most of your friends optimistic?

Would you prefer to hang out with more optimistic people?
If they are annoying about it no. If they just try to find the silver lining and not be over board with it, I don't care.

Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
I think that deals with having empathy for others or having gone through a similar situation.

Do you think that optimistic people are the "creative" ones in life?
They can be but it is known that the more depressed, bipolar etc etc come up with amazing art works,writings, and such. Example : Edgar Allan Poe, Silvia Plat

At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
I do both but I lean more with Pessimist.

Do pessimists have a better control of their own emotions?
Maybe but that deals with more what's inside the person besides being Optimistic or a pessimist.

Do you think pessimists can be manipulative? Or is it the other way around?
Again deals more than just being more or the other. But maybe (cause I'm not sure) being optimistic makes you more gullible and Pessimists people just take advantage of that.

How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
Doing a combo of both actually.

What music do you think optimists listen to?
Whatever they want, just because they look more for the silver lining doesn't mean we can stereo type them into a music genre/ type. However if you go that route optimists have probably more up beat things or mellow music while pessimist maybe have more depressing, or even very emotional music.
What music do you think pessimists listen to?
Same answer as above.

Is there a difference in physical and mental ability between being an optimist and pessimist?
Physical I say no, Mental very much yes.

Are you happy with the life your are currently living?
There is always room for improvement.

Have you ever experienced depression?
Everyone gets sad, everyone if it's happened yet or not get's depression just a little blimp here and there but it usually passes. So yeah I have.

In your OPINION, do you think the world has more optimists or pessimists? (Can greatly be influenced by the community your living in and what type of media you watch)

Do you believe rich people are optimists or pessimists?
I think some rich people are scam artist or was born into being rich. While some others actually work for it for years. I actually don't know really any rich people, wealthy maybe but not rich and I haven't read any studies done on this so I can honestly say I don't know.

Oops I missed a few questions, sorry.
Btw just cause your a pessimist doesn't make you a negative person or unable to have friends.
I have friends of all kinds and I tend to be more realistic than anything.
The world is a great mixture and I don't watch a lot of media cause a lot of it is lies. So I don't know, no one really does.


I agree highly with the person that answered above me (Sorry I didn't note your name) they get it.

Do you believe that being optimistic leads to a better, healthier life style?
Not really. I mean, maybe, I don't see how being optimistic helps in your over-all health, though.

Do you think that people who are optimistic tend to be more successful than others in the course of their life time?
Doubt it.

Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
Nope. The world is not nice, things are not gonna go your way 99.99% of the time. I don't see why deluding myself is helpful t all.

Do you find that optimistic people tend to have more friends than others?
That makes sense, not even I wanna be around myself all the time.

Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
No. How can you understand people if you can only think in a happy-go-lucky way. It may blind you, thinking, "it will get better", when it most likely won't.

At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
If my answers weren't enough to answer this question, I don't know what will be.

Do pessimists have a better control of their own emotions?
I'd like to believe we do.

How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
Pessimism is the key. If you know they're not gonna get better any time soon, then you can focus better on resolving them.

What music do you think pessimists listen to?
I like hard rock. ^^

Is there a difference in physical and mental ability between being an optimist and pessimist?
I believe pessimistic people tend to have a stronger mind.

Are you happy with the life your are currently living?
No.

Have you ever experienced depression?
Yup.

In your OPINION, do you think the world has more optimists or pessimists?
I think most of the world tends to be optimistic, most people need that in their life.

There are too many situations to call myself either a pessimist or optimist. I always want the best outcome but if you don't plan for anything going wrong, you might run into problems. I guess that makes me a realist. But if I had to choose, optimist definitely, because I don't just expect bad things to happen without any evidence to show, only when it's likely that something bad could happen.
