If you are a negative or pessimistic fan.   Read and Heed Mike Ditka's comment on life.

 

“If you have a good attitude about life, if you’re positive, you can achieve anything. If you’re negative, you’ll achieve nothing. And besides that, you’ll be a pain in the ass to be around.”

Not that I disagree with his sentiments, but Mike Ditka isn't exactly the type of guy I'd be looking to for life advice.

I prefer to be an optimist. Pessimists think things can't get any worse. An optimist knows that they will.

Pretty solid advice that's very generic and vanilla. Often times Realists get mixed up with pessimists though.

The reality is that the water is half way up the glass.  Optimists say it is half full.  Pessimists say it half empty. They are both realistic but they have a different perspective.  People who tend on focus on the negative are no more realists than those who are focused on the positive.

There is evidence to suggest being negative has some genetic links but it is a choice.  Problem is that most people prefer the negative and politics, marketing and many things in our lives focus on the negative.

I always thought that it depended on if you were adding water to the glass, or taking it out.

 

Adding = half full

Rmoving = half empty

Nope.  Still the same.  If you are removing water it is just as easy to say it is still half full as it is to say now it is half empty.

That is very true. But is I am thirsty and drinking the water, and want more I am more likely to say, pass me the water jug, my glass is half empty than to say it is still half full.

 

It just depends on the situation.

 

Jus tlike I hate when people ask my favorite color because it depends on what you are talking about. I like a dark blue shirt, but a black car, and I would not paint my bedroom either of those colors.
