 Does this mean over half of us are optimists at heart?  Or do we just not want to admit we’re pessimists?

2,000 Americans were recently shown a glass that was exactly 50% full.  Then they were asked if it was half-full or half-empty.  And 58% said half-full . . . while just 16% said half-empty.  The other 26% were indecisive.

Even the half-empty people weren’t very likely to say they’re a pessimist at heart.  48% said they think they’re more optimistic than pessimistic.

The survey also found the glass-half-full people tended to be more assertive, more competitive, more extroverted, and more likely to be a morning person.

And here’s the part of the study we liked most.  All 2,000 people had to name the top morning routines that help them have a good day.  Here are the top five . . .

  1. A cup of coffee.  It’s the #1 thing we need to get our day off to a good start.
  2. Waking up after getting enough sleep.  The fact that this is #2 is a testament to how much we love coffee.
  3. A morning shower.
  4. Listening to music while you’re getting ready, or in your car.
  5. Eating a light breakfast, but nothing too heavy.
