A true op­ti­mist, you like to look on the bright side no mat­ter what. Whether life is good or curve­balls are fly­ing your way, you man­age to re­main pos­i­tive and learn from the ex­pe­ri­ence. Peo­ple love your up­beat per­son­al­ity! Re­mem­ber to take a re­al­ity check ev­ery once in a while to en­sure that your head isn’t too high in the clouds. You could ask a trusted friend or fam­ily mem­ber to share their per­spec­tive, and take this into ac­count to keep you grounded when mak­ing im­por­tant life de­ci­sions.

Your view of the world is rather rosy, with­out be­ing un­re­al­is­tic. You un­der­stand what you can and can’t con­trol in most sit­u­a­tions, and you do your best to strike a healthy bal­ance be­tween re­al­ity and hop­ing for the best. You can see that set­backs are tem­po­rary and you use your cre­ativ­ity to solve the prob­lems that dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions cre­ate. This is serv­ing you well and will con­tinue to lead you to­wards suc­cess. Keep on hav­ing con­fi­dence in your abil­ity to cope with what life brings – you’re do­ing great!

Score of 13 points or less

It’s eas­ier for you to see prob­lems be­fore pos­si­bil­i­ties and this can hold you back. Don’t force your­self to be happy, but in­stead use dis­trac­tions to stop your­self from fix­at­ing on neg­a­tive or wor­ry­ing thoughts. You could work out, lis­ten to a song or talk to a friend. Chal­lenge your as­sump­tions about how bad a sit­u­a­tion could be by tak­ing a step back and see­ing it from al­ter­na­tive per­spec­tives. Ex­ag­ger­ate the out­come in your mind un­til it be­comes some­thing to laugh about!
