Optimists live  happier lifes.  They see the possibility, the solution and the meaningfulness in a tough situation better than the pessimist or depressed or the highly stressed.  Can optimists be living in denial?  Do optimists adopt a fantasy that will get them into trouble?  Most pessimists say optimism is fallacious, delusional and unsafe.  But, what does the research reveal about the impact of optimism upon neurology, immunology, coping skills, academic success, marital contentment, coping with stressful medical conditions or tough circumstances?  Research supports that optimists can be more realistic, more trusting, happier, more problem-solving oriented, more functional, more forgiving, more humored, and a lot more pleasant to socialize with.  We will cover the easy ways to increase your optimism cooefficient too.
