what if people who consider the cup half empty consider a cup as usually being full, like it is missing something if it is only half full, and people who consider the cup half full don't think of a cup as something that usually is full, rather just a container that occasionally gets filled but is usually empty. in this way of thought the optimist/pessimist roles are reversed

still neither considers if the cup feels more fulfilled when it is empty/full

@zvava a cup which is half full is optimally filled, having capacity available but not being underutilized.

Nobody likes walking around with a cup filled to the brim!
