I have to agree with Phlorence. I am definitely a realist. But if I had to choose between the two, then I would pick a pessimist.

I kinda depends on the mood i"m in, but I'm still really either.

most of the time I come off as pessimistic. but there are times, when I'm actually feeling happy, that I'll be optimistic.

So many answers above were from "realists" but I wonder if they're quite as realistic as they think? An optimist has a dream, a vision, a hope for the future. It's the optimist who gets things done because s/he can see that the future can be all that we hope for.

The pessimist expects the worst and is defeated before beginning anything. The realist sits on his/her hands and waits to be convinced.

When I go to a restaurant and order oysters I expect to find a pearl in one. My friend, who is a pessimist, expects to choke on it.
