Aight, I'll bite. Think about the last time you heard somebody say "I'm not a pessimist, I'm a realist!" What situation were they in? Were they being negatively biased? Were they, EVER, optimistic in a siuation in which they used the phrase "I'm a realist", seriously.. Think.
Realism is subjective to bias because whenever faced with a situation in which one might want to be negative, it is not cool to be percieved as such. So you type in "lol realist" because that way you sound like you're suave and you just have the world all figured out.

Also, you're never a realist, a pessimist or an optimist. Peoples' perception changes on their mood, and guess what? nobody is EVER one emotion. Nobody is always optimistic. Nobody is always pessimistic, and I can guarantee you nobody is ever always realistic.

But y'know. I tip my fedora if you wanna be "realistic."

Bullcrap. The world is what you make it.

I know some of you will be like "**** that, people suffer everywhere, if I make it or not"...
And that's true. That's damn true.

But here's another point. Go and make it better then. The fact you're reading this means you're better off than 90% of the earth Unless you nicked this computer, in which case you should take it back... You have food almost every day, if not every day.

If you goddam' put your mind to it, and believe in what you're doing?

You can make the world anything you goddam' want.

Rant over. Ready for your hatred.

hey man you can see the world as you wish, you could see it for what it is at face value and call it ****, or look deeper and find something more but either way is real so being a realist is a manor of both senses just remember its all perspective and make the most of what you can

Pessimism is assuming a worst case scenario the majority of the time.

Realism is making the best conclusion possible based on the information given.

If you have information leading you to conclude that a bad outcome is coming, its not pessimism. If you assume that bad **** is going to happen without evidence, its not realism. Not even if you turn out to be right.

Even if you assume that there is a natural bias for ****** things to happen, things can and do go the other way. Taking wild guesses if the outcome will be bad is not realism.

The only person i know who says "I'm not a pessimist, I'm a realist" is my dad who is the biggest ******* pessimist I know. He assumes that everyone is out to **** everyone else, and that the only thing stopping people from stealing and murdering is the justice system.

TL;DR: Assuming that pessimism is the "realist" view because the world is just that **** is the highest form of pessimism possible.

Because there's a difference. Realism is fighting 20 boxers in a fist fight and thinking you'll probably lose; Pessimism is fighting one skin-and-bones Hippie and still thinking you'll probably lose.

A pessimist is what an optimist calls a realist.

No it's not. The world is not so nearly as dark and dreary as people think it is, and that's just it; Human beings are not naturally cruel, we do not naturally enjoy hurting others. The mistake people make is thinking that everyone is out to get everyone else, but in reality people are just trying to help themselves and really only act badly or hurt when they don't understand the full scope of it, while even the most wretched of people will still feed a starving child if they saw them on the street.

Seriously let´s be honest, the only optimistic people are hippies, people who just lost their virginity and middle aged women who lost 5 pounds. I am a realist, therefore, a pessimist
