Description The exploratory study contributes to clarifications on relation among dispositional optimism/pessimism (Carver, Scheier, 2002), optimism/pessimism as a explanatory style (Seligman, 1990) and defensive pessimism (Cantor, Norem, 1989). Two studies (N1=1617, N2=106) are presented (one of them was supported by Czech Grant Agency, no. 406/09/0611). The results confirm that the presently existing leading constructs of optimism/pessimism are independent in large measure. The subsequent aim is to create a model of optimism based on the presented concepts.
