If
Your
Score
Is
It means...
0-20 You have a negative outlook on life, all the characteristics of a pessimist. You should try to overcome this tendency to see everything in a negative light. Good things do happen, dreams do come true, the extraordinary is possible. And all of these wonderful things can happen to you. Focus on the positive. And above all, don't listen to the negative voices in your head, and you'll be happier.
21 to 39 You see life realistically, aware that there's a mix of good and bad. You know that good things happen in life, but that bad news and setbacks are inevitable too. However, there are times when you're too focused on the negative. So the next time you hear the negative voices inside your head, remember that dreams do come true and that anything is possible. And though life is full of setbacks, everything happens for a reason, and often our failures can lead us to success.
40 to 60 You're an optimist. You see the world through rose-colored glasses. You always look for the good things in life and there's always hope in your heart. You believe that anything is possible. This outlook helps you deal with daily life. However, you may not notice the signals that warn that everything isn't going so good. So keep dreaming and believing, but keep your eyes open too; otherwise you may miss something important. And remember that wolves wear sheep's clothes sometimes.
