Optimism vs Pessimism

Quiz Image

You may have heard the words optimistic, pessimistic, or realistic before without truly understanding their meaning. Or maybe you know what they mean and are just taking this quiz out of curiosity. Maybe you're just taking this because you're in health class and I'm finally presenting this project and forcing you to take it.

Whatever the reason, now is the time to find out whether you see the bright side, the dark side, or just see things for what they really are. Have fun!
