Are you a positive person?
If so, do you go too far with it and irritate people?

I'm pretty neutral on the matter. Though I tend to assume the worst case scenario is what's going to happen, even if I know that it's very unlikely. When it comes to my future, though, I'm not exactly optimistic haha.

I'm a negative person... nothing ever seems to go right for me. They always say to me "think positive" but the negative always happens.

I'm a very optimistic person. I always try to look on the bright side, cause I believe that there is no cap to how bad things can get. Usually it doesn't annoy people unless I'm in a really bleak situation and I just look stubborn.

Things are how they are. Things could go right, of course, but remember that there's that small chance where everything goes wrong and you die or something.

Probability is a fun thing to do.

I am a very neutral person because I know if I think negative the worst thing will probably happen.

Negative with a positive disposition. I constantly expect the worst so I don't take it for granted when things are good.

Depends on my mood. I can be both,but if I'm really worried then i can be really pessimistic . In regards to other people, i either am someone who lifts their spirits, or someone who is realistic about it. I dont like to spew bs to friends that i care about.. so i try to give cautionary support.. if thatmakes sense...

It depends on the situation. I try to be positive about everything even when things aren't going right, but if I don't see any hints that something good is going to happen I end up becoming negative.

I tend to lean towards negativity. Everything will always go wrong! And then things work out, and I wonder why I'm always so pessimistic.

I wish I could be positive most of the time. :(

I'm incredibly optimistic, because I find pessimistic people boring. If you're positive, people will be drawn to you. If you're negative, well that gets old quick.

I'm not so positive that it's annoying though. Everything needs light and shade.

EDIT: Whoa boom 6000th post!

I'd agree with realistically positive. Some of the worst things can happen and often I'll just shrug them away with a simple "that's the way it goes". However, I also think things out a bit logically, too, so I don't get my hopes up for things that just aren't probable gievn the circumstances.

Honestly, what's the point in even being negative? I agree with Shining Raichu in that shtick does get old fast, and that people will be more drawn to you if you're positive than otherwise. At least in real life. I'm sure you can find lots of places online that welcome misery. Well, I guess you can find those iRL too, but I'd think you'd feel dirtier afterward. ;P

I'm a really positive person, tbh. I rarely think about the negative side of things. It doesn't go to the point where I'll irritate people, though.

I'm a bit of both. I can have days were' I'm all pessimism, and other days where I'm all optimism; some days both!

I'm not really too positive or too negative. I try to realistically judge things the best I can... because a realist is better than being too optimistic or too negative, in my opinion.

There are things that I'm very negative about, but I do consider myself a mostly positive person. I tend to harp on things that bother me, though, and I make that known to other people, so I feel like I create the impression to others that I'm more negative than positive, but I don't think that's the case.

I consider myself to be quite the optimist, and because of that I usually come off as this very friendly and cheerful person. I like to think very positive about things, and while I can sometimes assume the worst, I try to think about the best possible outcome (aka it's probably not going to happen that way; you're dreaming).

I try not to think or express any kind of negative feelings though. When around people who may not see things as optimistically as myself, I at least try and comfort or help them in the best way that I can without getting too negative myself.

I'm somewhere between positive and negative, more toward negative because I worry about the consequences of any "bad" things I do.
