The answer to the age old half empty or
full glass question: It depends on your last
action with it. If you drank from it it's half
empty, but if you filled it it's half full.

    • The question isn’t about being right or wrong, it’s a test of cognition. You’re presented with a constant, a half a glass of water, with no other knowledge presented to you on the scenario. It depicts if you have either a pessimist or optimistic outlook

    • it does not depend on your last action with it. and its not an either/or question either. the glass is both half full and half empty. you need both halves to make the whole glass, obviously.

    • You don’t get the full story in life. The whole point of the philosophical question is to see where your mind subconsciously takes you without knowing the context. Yeah, you might not have the answers, but the answer isn’t what we look at in this question, it’s instead your thought process.

    • That's completely false. You can drink half and then either lament there's "only half left" or rejoice there's "still half left." Same goes for filling. This solves absolutely nothing.
