Are You A Realist, An Optimist or Pessimist?

 

 

Hey there. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic Are you a realist, optimist, or pessimist? Optimism by definition is nothing but seeing the world with a lens of ‘everything will be ok’. Pessimism is the opposite. And is often not good for health even if you think that it is the reality.

I am saying so because most of the pessimist thinks that it is the only reality. While in my opinion the truth lies somewhere in between. It is neither too negative nor too positive. In fact I would like to mention that people love to see things in either black or white. The simple reason being it is easy to do so and complexity is something our brain hates. Hence it becomes much harder to judge the reality because it is somewhere in between. It is grey. It is thoe situations or people which takes much of our processing power of our brain.

So it is something in the evolutionary psychology that should be studied to know the reason about it. Psychology is a very hard subject as it tells the reality and it is the reality which is the strangest. The inability to process such grey areas is also due to the fact that our current education system fails to teach us about critical thinking. It is not that easy. Most of the human life goes in making decisions and it is those decisions which defines our life. Hence the next time you feel that you need to some more time is required to come to a conclusion then be rest assured you are on the right direction. As your patience before coming to a conclusion shows it. There are many other things which you could google about and understand.
