Half Empty, Half Full: Understanding the Psychological Roots of Optimism
Susan C. Vaughan (au). What makes us see the glass half empty or half full? How does an optimist sustain an upbeat perspective? How can a pessimist change in order to see the world differently? Here Vaughan offers fresh & helpful ways to understand optimism. She shows that healthy illusions form the base of optimism. Optimism flows from our ability to interpret & remember our experiences in a positive light. Examines the origins of optimism in early life & offers new evidence for the role of biology in how we interpret our experience. Offers proven tricks & techniques to fool the brainís circuitry into looking on the bright side. Shows that in learning the skills we need to construct & sustain illusions, we also build a stable, internal psychological core of strength.
