daniela777: Which is better, in your opinion? This did not cheer me up.
Is your glass half full or half empty?
Looking at both ends of the scale, we could look at it as positive, and negative but... is it really?
Both have advantages and disadvantages and most people are not at either extreme, but fall somewhere between.
Optimists might be good starters and will persevere regardless of obstacles, but may not stop when they should have.
Pessimists may not start at all, overcome by difficulties before they start. However, once they get started and achieved success, this fuels their confidence to carry on.
It is most widely thought that optimists are non-realists, which they can be if their perception of reality is distorted but, If you are an optimist based on realism, you are more likely to succeed.
As for Pessimists, they are more accurate about reality.
Research has shown that optimism is correlated with many positive life outcomes, including increased life expectancy, general health, better mental health, increased success in sports and work etc. and better-coping strategies when faced with adversity.
Life coaching behavioral techniques may not necessarily involve teaching people “optimism”, but instead, just reducing pessimism.
Discuss at your heart´s content.
Why are they VS each other all the time. Why can't they just come together and be pissyoptimissy?
