'the Eternal Pessimist'

Recommended Posts

Ive long been fascinated by the eternal pessimist. In some ways I am one myself.

I want help to define what shape an eternal pessimist takes.

Here's my quick thumbnail list of traits, please add to it;

* He considers himself a realsist not a pessimist

* Yesterday was always better

* Debt is folly and never a tool to be exploited

* He enjoys others misfortune on some level

* People who suceed from risk taking start of as 'fools' but upon achieving sucess become 'lucky'

* They love trawling for high interest accounts

* Anything new is unworthy

* The Potatoe is a great 'Brittish' icon :lol: , yet when thier pessimistic great grandfather first encountered one it was 'FORRING MUCK'

* Thier world is fixed in aspic. Nothing can change surely? EG Poles wont become as rich as Brits, they will surely remain swarthy peasants ready to steal hard earned cash

* Business ventures are ALWAYS a bad idea - nothing new is possible

* UK plc is always about to go down the pan (will be the same in a billion years)

* Analysis they excell at, but this causes paralysis

WOW, what about people who took your word in Saidia (and lost couple of tens of thousands £) and now curse and wine on all the Forums? Are they optimists or pessimists? :P

Pessimist, someone who can hardly wait for the future, so they can then look back with regret. :( discontented optimists. ;)

Think they were optimists when they bought VVT8, becoming pessimists now they've seen VVT6, and could achieve doom monger status by the time the Spanish crash has run its course & VVT1 is selling at prevailing market rates. :)
