Do you get frustrated by people's overly optimistic or pessimistic perspectives? Do you find yourself sighing and wishing that for once you could just discuss the Facts without thembeing colored by anyone's opinions? Do you hear yourself saying over and over again, "Look! It is what it is!"
If so, you may be a Realist. Realists are happiest when they know exactly what's going on so that they can have an informed opinion. They revere objectivity and try very hard to be fair in making a judgment. Because of this, they may find themselves frequently mediating for friends, family, and co-workers. We often hear Realists wondering how they have found themselves on a planet surrounded by so many biased or misled souls. Buck up, Realists! We all need you...perhaps more now than ever.
