You are a true optimist at heart! You always see the bright side of life and truly believe the best in people. You are very appreciative, forgiving, upbeat, and cheerful. Deep down you know that no matter what happens to you, your attitude will always keep you happy and content. That's the best way to live life, isn't it?



You tend to be more of a pessimistic person and you generally have a negative attitude about life. It's hard for you to believe that everything will be better tomorrow because you've been through a lot of tough times. You know that life is not always in our control, and that we are all vulnerable. That knowledge enables you to live a rather disappointment-free life. However, you're not necessarily an unhappy person. You just expect the worst, and then you're pleasantly surprised and much more excited when something good happens, eventually. And good things DO happen from time to time, we promise.



You are a true realist! You are able to see the world as it is. You are very clear-headed, objective, and pragmatic. You don't really believe in positive or negative thinking, you believe in the truth and the now. You're smart, practical, and reliable, which makes you an excellent person to seek advice from. As a realist, you are able to see the big picture and you can understand both sides.



You are an opportunist, meaning you jump to an opportunity as soon as it arises, often disregarding others and the consequences. You are motivated by self-gain and tend to look out for yourself over others. Although you could be a bit selfish, it's admirable how you see life as an endless opportunity. You are highly ambitious and driven. You truly believe that if you take action and work hard towards a goal, you will achieve what you want in life.
