Optimism vs Pessimism

If you look at optimists and pessimists what you find is that optimists tend to live longer, rise higher in their companies, and get better grades in school with one exception. They have found that optimists tend to get lower grades and pessimist get higher grades in legal studies. That's right, if you want a great lawyer, get one who is really pessimistic.

But if you are like most people who would rather not be depressed, studies have shown that belief in God helps to overcome anxiety and relieves stress.

University of Toronto psychologists reported last year that "believing in God can help block anxiety and minimize stress," their research showcasing "distinct brain differences" between believers and nonbelievers.

So nothing is worse than a lawyer who is also an atheist. Explains a lot about the ACLU.
