Their result for The Optimism Test ...

Totally Realistic

You scored xxx%

Geez, who rained on your parade? Okay, so you don't have the same Eeyore-ish attitude as a true pessimist, but you definitely aren't expecting good things to happen, either. Even when the weatherman is sure of sun, you carry an umbrella. And we're willing to bet that you're at least somewhat sarcastic — you like making fun of those suckers who are always looking on the bright side of life. You don't trust people readily; they have to earn their spot in your good graces. (In fact, you may even feel like you have enough friends and don't really need any more.) After all, nobody's giving you anything in this world — it's every man for himself. But you're not completely devoid of hope. Admit it: Somewhere deep inside is a tiny part of you that truly believes at least one cloud out there has a silver lining. Try listening to that part a little more often and see what happens.

Ray of Sunshine

Congratulations! You're the eternal optimist, a regular "Sunshine Day" of a person. When it rains, you think about how good the water is for the flowers and trees rather than how wet you're getting. M... Read more
