In preparation for an "optimism the how and why workshop" with Australia Post, we asked the participants to fill out our global optimism survey.
Global Word Cloud
What sort of Optimist are you?
Australia Post Participants
Realistic optimists constitute a quarter of our participants and it's pretty close to the global average. Cautious optimists are the next largest group and that's almost three times the global average. The third largest group are purposeful optimists at about the global average.
The participants in our Australia Post workshop seems to have many more people with an optimistic mindset than the global average. Those who know "things will work out in the end" are almost double the global average. Family is a strong underpinning for many.
