According to Reinin dichotomies, IEEs are negativist. But it seems to me that IEEs are stereotypically cheery and optimistic, so there's quite a bit of discretion here. To the IEEs here: do you see yourself as more pessimistic?
I personally have always been a pessimist. It's just more natural for me todenote the bad aspects of things than emphasize the good ones. Do other IEEs feel the same way?
