Are you an optimist, pessimist or a realist?
Over the years many have called me a pessimist; I don't think I am. I never automatically look at the down side of everything. Yet, when I voice an opinion is does, at times, seem rather bleak. I say, I'm looking at things 'realistically.' Not through rose-colored glasses. Age & experience sometimes does that to a person. (Age? Well, maybe not, I've always been like that.)
Are you always optimistic? Pessimistic? Wishy-washy? Without any opinion about anything? Do you vet everything? i.e., Do extensive, sometimes obsessive research...about products, prices, etc.? A mix? Or do you feel you're balanced - a realist? ;-)
