My wife and I have commented to each other that we naturally default to the rosy view (although I am more likely to get there via the most pessimistic, which makes any positive outcome look that much better [IMHO]). Alas, it tends to make us less tolerant of the ones who always seem happiest when they have something about which to complain.
