It's metaphorical. Half full is positive and empty is negative. This is here to say, basically, if you focus on the positive or the negative.


Finally! Someone understands me! (Or decided to not act silly...)
I wasn't being silly.Life will always have half and half.Sometimes less.So,it could be either way because the glass saying that it is half full and half empty has to do with how you think.Also,ift seems people are thinking what Wind Rider ~ was just a joke.IT WASN"T.Really,think about it.When I look at life many times I see dread,death,and woe.I'm...............Not going any further.But I could,sometimes I wiew life as good too.But I would say "Half-Empty".Actually the water for me is clogged in my mind...............So I change.

That's right. You should be thinking of the question within the question. When I was 8-9, I used to have two different teachers for two different days. On the Monday, Thursday and Friday, I'd have a really nasty, grumpy teacher whom nobody liked. On the Tuesday and Wednesday, we'd have an exciting, happy teacher whom the class liked. I don't think she liked the grumpy teacher at all. One day she told us all this in a pretty subtle way, to our eyes. She's say that she'd think of glasses being half full, and the other one would see it as half empty. We didn't see the point of this at the time. I was only about 8. She really didn't like our other teacher!

If you want the real answer from me, then here I go:

My glass is always fluxuating. Sometimes I see it as half full, and sometimes I see it as half empty. Sometimes it's completely full; sometimes it's completely empty. There is no one single mood that can contain me. I WILL CONQUER THE GLASS! T_T

Reality swirled in a wholly blue manner, revealing absolutely nothing of merit. Things flashed madly in and out of existence like some entirely other sort of phenomena. On a whim, Kurt Vonnegut imploded, taking a sizeable hunk of Massachusetts with him. However, seeing as Massachusetts wasn't entirely sure it existed, the chunk wasn't all that big.

This is confusing some of you. This is 'how do you see life? Positive? Or negative? It is NOT 'What do you see life is itself?'. That would be different. Do you like life? If so, it should be half full. If not, it should be half epty. Although it's just what comes out in normal conversation, it shows what you really feel about life. Next time you talk freely with a stranger remember this can happen with a lot of words so beware! :lol:

I say half full, but sometimes when something just go bad, then I would say half empty, but nope. It's full.

I feel my life is a little empty... In my eyes I haven't achieved much and I lack a few things in life which I would like... But I have a lot of things which I am really grateful of which lifts me up.

It isn't whether you think life is halfway or empty or full! If someone handed you a glass with water up to the middle, would you say it is half full, or half empty?

Oh I get it. You don't want us to be philosophers. You want us to think inside the box.

In that case, it's half full.

This isn't about thinking one way, or communism or anything! You are completely changing the question so that it isn't the same question anymore!

Look, I'm sure you will all be great philosophers one day, and maybe we should have a topic for it, BUT THIS ISN'T THE PHILOSOPHICAL TOPIC!!!

None, I am sad or upset only when something causes it, I am Happy when my Love holds me or makes me feel Loved (which apparently is rare... ), otherwise there is no "glass" or "optimist" or "pessimist" at all.

The replies on the first page make for a much more interesting topic :P.

I'd say neither. It clearly has 50% liquid and 50% air/open space.

"Those that say their glasses are half-full are considered optimists. Yeah, but shouldn't we be more specific about the contents of the glass? If it's a glass of shit, I'm going half-empty. I don't like shit as an optimist. "Yeah, we gotta half-empty shit glass right here.""

I am not to sure myself, because I myself have (metaphorically) seen the glass through both perspectives. So, in general, it depends on the mood setting really.
