    Half full or half empty?

    What kind of people do we have on MMO-C

    Optimist's who would think the glass is half full or pessimists who think the glass is half empty?
    Personally I am a pessimist and tend to look to the negatives things before the posotives.

    I tend to switch back and forth. Sometimes I will see it as half full, and others as half empty.
    I love you forever and ever and then some times two

    Depends on what you're doing.

    If you're in the process of pouring into it, you say it's only half full. If you're draining it, i.e. drinking, you say it's half empty. The direction of the water flow determines the usage.

    Can't see any fat stains on the glass so I'd say it's just been filled, thus half-filled. However I'm pessimistic by nature so let's say half-empty anyway.

    Hmm, you typed it wrong, we get too choose between half full, or half full :-) But the poll is correct, personally i'm on the pessimist side, but that means i'm either confirmed in my dark pessimisn, or things went better than expected, its a win win :-)

    way to miss the point..

    I would look at the rim for lip marks and then use her same logic to find an answer.

    Taking that specific picture into account I would say half-full, it's what came to mind when I first looked at it (although due to the shape of the actual glass I'd say it's got water on just over half of it).

    Philosophically speaking - I don't give a shit. So probably half-full anyway.

    Judging by the size of the glass, I would say it has 150 mL of water in it, give or take.

    I think I just call it half full by habit. Generally speaking, i'm not that optimistic in times other than wine glass liquid amounts speculation

    It just points out a flaw in the wording of the topic, that's it.

    It's half full of water and half full of air.

    Or in other words, I'm optimistic and Pessimistic. I'm optimistic when I'm in a good mood and I'm pessimistic when being optimistic is pointless.

    Half empty, it will eventually evaporate.

    There is no other way to look at it but fully empty

    OT: Ummm it really depends.. Most of the time half full but occasionally I am a half empty person but not often

    Depends on the situation, context of things, and how the day had been.
