This is listed as the fifth part of the Four-Philosophy Ensemble. I consider myself to be such, for the most part.

Do you consider yourself to be such? What are your thoughts on it?

For myself I find it a bit frustrating how malleable some of my beliefs are.

Nope. I'd either be the Cynic, or the Apathetic. If I have conflicting emotions about something, I'll usually just take the pragmatic option.

I am The Realist, since it seems the most logical (and the best fit for me as an INFJ.)

In theory, I'd be The Realist; in practice, though, I tend to be either the Cynic or the Apathetic.

I am the Optimist and the Cynic rolled into one...

I dunno. I tend to be The Devil's Advocate, mostly.

somehow, I am both the cynist and the optimist, but absolutely not the realist.

I'd be The Realist. Guess it fits me, as I'm an INTJ.

Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

Realist with a dash of Cynic.

The Conflicted, as described on the trope page, sounds like someone I really wouldn't get along with in real life. All squishy and weak.
