Optimism is a behavior that indicates hope or belief that the outcomes in general, or the outcome of some specific endeavor, will be favorable, positive, and desirable. An idiom used to show optimism versus pessimism is a glass that is filled with water to half: an optimist sees the glass as half full, whereas a pessimist observes the glass as half empty.
The term is derived from the Latin optimum, which means "best". Being optimistic is expecting the best outcome from a given situation. It is referred to as dispositional optimism in psychology. It shows a belief that future conditions will work out for the best. For this purpose, it is observed as a trait that fosters resilience in the face of stress.
