People in this category usually have a very gloomy outlook on thing in general, trapped within a dark mind. Most of the times, it is past events that has made them pessimistic. Most likely they lived through a few unfortunate events and/or hardships that made quite a large impact on them. Now they seem to believe they have been cursed with bad luck, for nothing ever do go their way.
Positive scenarios they gladly live through, but later proclaim them as a coincidence or shrug them off. Positive things never leaves them a great, lasting impression, and they tend to hold onto events which went badly. Pessimists are seen as "party poopers" if they were to voice out their opinion. It is not that they want to live life this way, but they found that life will be unfair whether they want it to or not. Therefore they have adjusted, albeit reluctantly. They want things to be better, but seldom do anything about it. Most Pessimists are passive aggressive, and never really want to try new things. Those will probably only disappoint them anyway, they think. Many things in their lives are a disappointment to them already. They stick to what's safe and tried, for they know where they have it.
Pessimists are truly negative, and may be prone to develop depression. They often feel life is hopeless and have little to no faith in both things and people. Pessimists usually stick to "their own kind", so to speak, and prefer solitude or the company of a selected few. As a safety precaution, they never expect much. That way they won't be hurt. Pessimists are usually seen as life's victim. But even so, they are not trying to change it either way.
