Abstract

Optimists generally expect good things to happen to them; pessimists expect outcomes that are more negative. This article links differences in optimism and pessimism to the ways in which people cope with stress and explores how these coping differences help to promote the kinds of outcomes that optimists and pessimists receive. © 2007
