How Optimistic Are You?

You Are Generally Good-Natured


Like everyone else, you have your ups and downs in life. You try to keep going and remain positive though! You know how easy it is to see the downside of any bad news. You do what you can to lift your spirits when times are tough.

You're not just a good-natured person - you're a proactive one. You solve your problems whenever you can. Even in the worst of times, there's something you can do to make things better and less stressful... and you find it.

You aren't overly optimistic or pessimistic. You think it's best to take a wait and see approach to most things. Whenever there's a crisis, your friends and family appreciate your levelheadedness and realism. You keep your cool.

    1. And here I thought you were always good-natured, Kathy!

  2. I came out also being generally good-natured, which is true. I usually see good aspects of situations, but bad things can be daunting. I do find though that as I get older, I do not have the patience I used to have and stress gets to me more.

    But my attitude about life is pretty optimistic. Now if we were talking about the government shutdown or war, that would be a different story.

    1. We all have "hot buttons" and you mentioned a couple of mine!

  3. Get this, Cathy. I may be doing this quiz 3 days late, but I'm "perfectly positive."

    No matter what happens, you stay optimistic and upbeat... possibly to the point of annoying others.
    Not only do you see the silver lining - you refuse to see the dark clouds. You don't let your thoughts get negative.

    Those around you may feel like you don't take your or their problems seriously, and that may be true.
    It's more likely, though, that you think there's more than enough negativity in the world. And you don't want to contribute to it.

    As long as you're not avoiding taking care of your problems, there's nothing wrong with all your optimism and happiness.
    Just remember that it can seem glib to others who don't have your great outlook. Take a few minutes to empathize with them before you work on spreading cheer.
