Is the Glass Half Empty or is the Glass Half Full?
Posted August 6, 2020, 12:00am by Kathleen Nelson-Simley
You see a glass with water in it. The water is at the half-way mark in the glass.
Which leads to the question:
Is the glass half empty?
Or is the glass half full?
How would you choose to describe it?
A glass containing water to the half-way point is often used to point out the difference between optimists and pessimists. The optimist sees the glass as half full - focusing more on what is there and all that could be done with half a glass of water. The pessimist sees the glass as half empty – focusing more on half the water being gone and, eventually, the glass becoming empty.
Are you the optimist? Or are you the pessimist?
