Thread: Cynicism & Naive Optimism

  1. #1

    Default Cynicism & Naive Optimism

    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.

    A better approach, is to deal with facts.
