    Optimistic theory is an idea INTRODUCED by Martin Seligman who says to see filled side of glass. If someone applies this theory in his/her life it will be more satisfying. Optimistics are be happier than pessimistics. Pessimistics look so pessimist about bad results but optimistics think that everything will be good for example a pessimist thinks about a bad result it wiil be bad like this for every time but an optimistic says that it because of envorimental reasons so it will be good next time. According this optimists are live so fulfilled life and be succesful at their works or studies.

    Please correct the mistakes mentioned bellow and erase this part then
    Pay attention to the mistake here: “Martin Seligman which” Do we use “which” with people?
    Singular pronoun always takes “S”: “Someone apply!!!!”
    There are two verbs in this sentence “Pessimistics are look ” !!!
    Please correct the mistake here: optimistics thinks !!!

    Content: You need to explain how pessimist and optimists react when things go wrong. This part is the most important difference between optimist and pessimist.

    ıt is good that you are using impersonalized language 🙂 (someone, people, they, etc)

    The optimistic theory is an idea which was created by Martin Seligman.He describe us the optimistic poeople;the optimistic people are always happy because when they had a bad thing he thinks it must be caused by the external powers and when they had a good event it’s their own power.

    Optimism is a thing that we can learn and develop.

    very nice explanation of optimists 🙂 🙂
    but what about the pessimits. 🙁 You need to say someting about them as well (ie. they blame themselves when things go wrong and they believe that they could not change it in the future as well)

According to the theory optimists sees good outcomes, pessimists sees bad outcomes.Optimists are happier than the pessimists by the theory.Optimists increase their levels of happiness.

    Comment:
    Do we use who or which with people?: Martin Seligman which
    Pay attention to subject verb agreement: optimists sees, pessimists sees
    The last two sentences are too general instead you could talk about the attittude differences between the optimists and pessimists when things go wrong.
    It is good that you are using impersonalized language (i.e. optimists, pessimists, etc) 🙂

    Optimism is commenting on the positive things that people view adopted by. Adopting this view, people do not think negative.I support that idea too , it’s more creative than pessmisctic idea.Because negative thinking, would not be useful to us.I think all people should think a little more positive.

    Comment:
    All of the ideas are too general and nothing is comming from the book. I’m afraid you could get a very low grade in the exam if you write something like that.
    🙁

They think these mistakes will show the correct.Pessimists are just the opposite.They are negative.They afraid of making mistake.If a bad event happens,they believe everything goes wrong.Becouse they think that they are not good enough.This will probably effect their life in future.

    Optimism theory is a theory that Martin Seligman’s supports. This theory conteins two kind of people defination. The optimists are always think everything gone a be allright. And this point of view makes them generaly happy. The pesimists are exactly the opposite of the optimists. They can’t get happy because they allways think bad. Optimistic thinking makes people live fullfiled lifes.
