So do you still try if you know you're going to fail?
Actually, that would be the definition of an optimist... one who tries even when they know they are going to fail: they always have the feeling they are going to defy gravity.  (not sure why I am using the 'they' word - that would be me...)

A true pessimist doesn't even go there...

I figure my thoughts are pessimistic enough without me admitting to be a pessimist.

I'm not, usually.

But forgive me if I don't read this thread often...the less negativity around me the better.

Pessimism is as American as apple pie -- frozen apple pie with a slice of processed cheese.
