Do you believe that being optimistic leads to a better, healthier life style?
Yes.

Do you think that people who are optimistic tend to be more successful than others in the course of their life time?
The meaning of being "successful" is pretty subjective. Everyone sets their own goals in life, even pessimist people.

Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
Yes, very.

Do you find that optimistic people tend to have more friends than others?
Of course.

Are most of your friends optimistic?
Yes, and I tend to keep away from pessimist friends. They bring nothing good and are annoying.

Would you prefer to hang out with more optimistic people?
Definitely.

Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
No, I think both are equals. It depends on the person, optimist or not.

Do you think that optimistic people are the "creative" ones in life?
Not really. Some amazing creators were probably pessimistic.

At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
Optimist most of the time. But I,m always ready for the worst.

Do pessimists have a better control of their own emotions?
Both are equals, I think.

Do you think pessimists can be manipulative? Or is it the other way around?
Ummm... It really depends on the person. Most of the manipulative people I've met were pessimists, but I have that friend who's super optimistic and is the worst manipulator ever.

How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
Optimist.

What music do you think optimists/pessimist listen to?
I don't see the link between optimist or pessimist and music taste.

Is there a difference in physical and mental ability between being an optimist and pessimist?
No.

Are you happy with the life your are currently living?
VERY. I feel very lucky and grateful for the life I'm living.

Have you ever experienced depression?
No.

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)
Optimists, I think. If it was the other way around, the world wouldn't be as it is today.

Do you believe rich people are optimists or pessimists?
I'd say equals.

I think the questions require a little too much generalisation (although maybe that's the point, to see if you generalise in the negative, positive or in-between).

I guess I lean towards being a "Realist", I like to consider things completely and look at the best and worst cases. I often like to take an opposing stance if I see a one sided discussion, I guess I aim for balance.

It's possible that I just swing between optimism and pessimism. I don't like dismissing things when there's a chance, even if it's a tiny chance ("improbable is not impossible"). I also find it somewhat motivating that everything that ever existed will most likely cease to exist and/or be forgotten. If I make a mess of my life it's not going to matter in the long run and if I change the world for the better it'll ultimately be irrelevant too. I find the universe both fascinating and frustrating.

Do you believe that being optimistic leads to a better, healthier life style?
Maybe a bit better on average. Not due to a care for their health. Instead I think it has to do with the Pessimist side of the fence not caring for the "Better, Healthier life style" BS people are trying to feed them.

Do you think that people who are optimistic tend to be more successful than others in the course of their life time?
No I think that success in life doesn't come from being a pessimist or an optimist but instead comes from being determined for what ever reason.

Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
I'm Optimistically Pessimistic. See if I look on the "bad" side of things and expect the worse to happen I can never be disappointed only pleasantly surprised. I mean think about it your dog gets hit by a car and loses a leg do you feel bad for the dog or do you laugh at how he will now run? Btw I'm going to laugh. I mean after all he survived (pleasant surprise) and you get to laugh at your dog trying to run with 3 legs (added bonus).

Do you find that optimistic people tend to have more friends than others?
Nope. I know plenty of Optimistic people who's Optimism drives people away. I've even seen someones Optimism run another Optimistic away because the other person was "too" optimistic. Pessimist however they seem to love to gather. Course this is assuming those people that gather around you are "Friends" and not just "Enemies" you are keeping close.

Are most of your friends optimistic?
No my friends are probably about 50/50. If I kept mainly Optimist around sure I got more people to laugh at when life craps on them but I have fewer people to share the stories with that will enjoy the stories.

Would you prefer to hang out with more optimistic people?
No because of reason stated in the above question.

Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
Nope I think they are more likely to BS people into believing they care but then they've been BS'ing themselves into looking on the bright side all this time so why stop there.

Do you think that optimistic people are the "creative" ones in life?
No I think that creativity comes from boredom. Whether or not you're Optimist or Pessimist really doesn't matter. However I think that optimist are more apt to show off their creative works thinking everyone else will like it too while the pessimist simply enjoys their own creativity and doesn't bother other people with it.

At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
Like I said earlier I'm Optimistically Pessimistic. See 3rd Question.

Do pessimists have a better control of their own emotions?
I think they are simply better at hiding it or redirecting it in a different direction.

Do you think pessimists can be manipulative? Or is it the other way around?
Both sides can be manipulative the difference is why they are being manipulative. A pessimist will probably do it for a selfish reason while a Optimist will do it thinking they are some how bettering the other persons life.

How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
Well you see... when something is bothering me I do one of two things a) I destroy something and vent or b) I reason it out and look at it from a variety of angles.

What music do you think optimists listen to?
Personally I don't think there is a direct connection between the two.

What music do you think pessimists listen to?
Same as above.

Is there a difference in physical and mental ability between being an optimist and pessimist?
Probably slight differences such as pessimist being able to handle "bad" news a bit better than an optimist.

Are you happy with the life your are currently living?
Happy? No. Comfortable? Yes. I think often times people mistake being comfortable with what they know as being "Happy".

Have you ever experienced depression?
Never been treated for it but personally I don't think you can go thru life with out going thru depression to some degree.

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) Optimist. Stupidity runs rampant in today's world.

Do you believe rich people are optimists or pessimists?
This relates back to earlier with the comment about being successful. I don't think Optimism or Pessimism really effects it but more that determination effects it.

Do you believe that being optimistic leads to a better, healthier life style?
- Yes and no. Because sometimes the expectations may be a little too high, but if they're just right, positivity is healthy.

Are you a generally optimistic person? If not. Why so?
- I believe I am. I have my doubts, though. I'm a very paranoid person, and I do believe sometimes things will go wrong, and list the worst possible outcomes.

Would you prefer to hang out with more optimistic people?
- I would. I think it'd influence me to drop my fears and ease my anxiety.

Do you think optimistic people have a better understanding of other people's feelings?
- I think it depends on the actual person.

Do you think that optimistic people are the "creative" ones in life?
- Not necessarily. I mean, yes, they might be creative, but even the darkest of mindsets can be creative.

At which side do you believe to be on? Optimist or pessimist?
- Optimism, of course. I strive to think positively.

Do you think pessimists can be manipulative? Or is it the other way around?
- I feel both pessimists and optimists can be pretty manipulative.

How do you cope problems better. Being a optimist or pessimist?
- Honestly, being a pessimist. Because if I think of all the worse things that could happen, I might know what to expect and how to deal with it. I don't recommend using this method all the time, though. It's bad for both anxiety and depression.

What music do you think optimists listen to?
- Depends on the person.

What music do you think pessimists listen to?
- I really think it depends on the person.

All genres of music express both grief and enlightenment.

Are you happy with the life your are currently living?
- Yes and no. Love the people in my life, but something's not right. Too personal to get into.

Have you ever experienced depression?
- I have depression.

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)
- I believe there are far too many pessimists, or just a lot of negative people alike. Not all pessimists are "bad" people, and I personally don't blame them for anything they may think. It's rotten seeing so much hate and hopelessness everywhere and trying to stay happy.
