As we are in the middle of political debate season, I find that I tend to categorize people into these three camps: dreamers, realists, and malcontents. Which category do you fit into?

Dreamers: Always thinking about the way they wish things were in their ideal world.

Realists: Not necessarily happy or unhappy with the way things are, but they realize there is only such much one can do or expect.

Malcontents: Unhappy with the way things are and are more likely to complain than actually do anything about it.

I don't actually expect many of you to admit here or to yourselves that you are either a dreamer or a malcontent, but perhaps it is worth consideration.

I'm an optimistic realist leaning toward dreamer. :)

Based on your definition...a dreamer.

"Always thinking about the way they wish things were in their ideal world."

But alot of people think differently! rotfl

Todd, are you a regular on Lotustalk just to further your political analyst career?:shrug:


Optimistic realist, because I believe if we are resposible for global warming, we'll find a way out, just in time, right Larry.

I'd like to say I'm a dreamer...it sounds so...I don't know...dreamy...but, hey, I own a house and car, so I must be somewhat grounded in reality...or is it just that I'm married to a woman who deals with all that for me and I believe everything will work out for the better the more I leave myself out of the everyday equation. Yep, that's it. Which puts me squarely in the Optimistic Realist category. Or the Charming Doofus category. Thank God I can still lift heavy objects for her. Failing that, I'm toast...

But, Larry, "Dreamer" still shows "0" in the poll. Did you forget to vote? Are you sleep-walking (or would that be sleep-posting)?

I voted for "Realist" which I am.

But by Todd's definition I guess I'm a (happy) dreamer.

Or maybe a Charming Doofus like Tom.
