    A funny conversation IRL today. So obviously y'all don't know me, but based on my (high-quality and insightful) posting, do I seem like an egotistical, half-witted optimist, or an egotistical, half-witted pessimist?

    Bonus points for examples.

    Please note, bonus points not redeemable for anything.

    Well, I thought you were either an optimist or a pessimist, until this thread...

    Only an optimist could live in Melbourne. Things can't get worse than that.

    Why limit it to an A/B choice. Would you subscribe to having multiple personalities that come out to play depending the circumstances?

    Used to be like that, but they all went Mad Max : Beyond Thunderdome on each other. You know...two personalities enter, one personality leaves...

    Heh...I had a moment of boredom. If you do a history of threads where I've had my name in the thread title, they make for pretty weird reading.

    Obviously optimistic. And not a single example but the aggregate of 254 "optimistic" frubes according to your profile - and not a single "pessimistic".

    Based on - as you say - not knowing you, I fear you may be a realist with a shiny aura of optimism.

    When you add the option:

    "I dunno. I just get creeper vibes."

    I think that you might encourage people to choose it :D

    You missed the "often pissed" option

    And it has the distinct advantage of rhyming with optimist.

    Heh, yeah, I know. Hopefully most are choosing it as a joke, rather than ACTUALLY thinking I give creeper vibes...!!

    Actually, when I came to RF, I had previously been through some bullying experiences with atheists. You've been one of the main ones who have eased that once held discomfort for me.
