Which do you live by the most? I've found there is one good thing about pesimism, things can usually turn out not as bad as you thought it was (hence the awful process of over-thinking) but I've found I become terrible depressed when I don't think optimistically, even if the things I'm optimistic about don't happen the way I think about.

I dunno. I think I'm realistic, but by most standards, I'm optimistic.

Is that cake frosting?
Ideally, parallelism — as in, I try to consider best, average and worst scenarios, and to optimize for all of them at the same time.

In practice, I generally end up being cautiously optimist.
But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

Realism often bordering in pessimism.

Pessimistic around optimists and optimistic around pessimists.

Often times, realism; Though, concerning human nature, optimism.

Hi.
I refuse to have any actual opinion on anything, but I guess I act like a realist with seemingly optimistic leanings.

Optimism! Realism is also an option.

Realism is just a label made up by cynics so their opinions sound less pretentious and needlessly dire.

For a pessimist, I'm pretty optimistic.

I'm an optimist, for the most part.
