Need, Wish and Requirement

What every optimist needs,
What every realist wishes,
What every pessimist requires,
Is to be proved wrong,
Once in a while.

  1. Can’t fault that however, it did get me thinking (which is good!). If an optimist was never proved wrong, I guess they would become a realist. If a pessimist was never proved wrong, I guess they would probably jump off a bridge somewhere at some point in time. However, if I realist was never proved wrong………….. I guess they would remain a realist. Hmmmmmm!

    1. So …. as the three traits are based on attitude towards a situation as distinct from the outcome. then if an optimist is never proved right, they could still be viewed as an optimist from an optimist’s perspective; they could be viewed as misguided (from a realist’s perspective, and could be viewed as totally stupid (“Duh!”) from a pessimist’s perspective.
