Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Maybe, judge yourself before the pandemic/war/inflation/climate crisis all heated up just to be fair.
Or use this image of a cat. Apparently, the way you see this cat can tell you if you are an optimist or a pessimist. If you see the cat going UP a set of stairs, you are an optimist. If you see the cat going DOWN a set of stairs, you are a pessimist. (I saw down. No surprise there.)
If you see the cat going up, you may live longer! A new study from Boston University shows that optimists have longer, healthier lives. Maybe even nine of them!
