Care to Test Your Optimism by a widely respected scientific psychologist?
Would you say you’re an optimist or a pessimist?
Is being an optimist better than being a pessimist?
Actually there no definitive answer to that last question. There are disadvantage if one is overly optimistic, and certainly grave disadvantages if one is very pessimistic.
Optimism or pessimism is one’s inner view of their outer world. An optimist, for example believes in the positive side; believes in that goodness will prevail, no matter what the circumstance. While the pessimist takes on the grim view of the world that, with all things, bad will happen and things will turn out for the worst.
I’ve had my mentoring group do this test and they were surprised with the result. It is easy to quick and easy to do, it is done by Excel spreadsheet.
