Realistically Optimistic: Explanatory Style

Explanatory style is a psychological attribute that indicates how people explain themselves why they experience a certain event, whether positvely or negatively.

Optimists see obstacles as temporary and opportunities for good things to happen in the future and to establish a better foundation for resiliency, while pessimists see otherwise. People with an optimistic outlook are likely to form social connections because they see the good in people hence building better relationships with others.
