They are usually children (optimistic realists).

My son is definitely. He is always a realist-but he looks for the "how to make it work" side and is always optimistic.

Not I however-not I.
(maybe we outgrow it and become jaded simultaneously?)

I find pessimist-bashing offensive and hostile. Please stop immediately.

I was spanked by a pessimistic flyswatter over the weekend. They got me and missed the fly.
