Cynicism - to make insistently negative estimates without sufficient evidence.

Naive Optimism - to make insistently positive estimates without sufficient evidence.

Both are illogical positions.

Both are the making up of the mind (prejudice) on a matter before encountering it.

With cynicism, possibilities are not even considered. With naive optimism, disapointment usually follows.

With both, things are not seen as they should be seen.
