    • The glass isn't poured by you. You walk up to a random half filled glass. You have no prior knowledge of the glass and have to extrapolate from that.

    • They are both correct you don’t know the previous state of the glass. You make a subconscious assumption that it either used to be full and lost half making it half empty and you more of a pessimist. Or, you assumed it gained half a glass making it half full making you more of an optimist.

    • An optimist sees the glass as half full, a pessimist sees it as half empty, but a realist knows it depends on whether you're filling or emptying the glass.

    • If only teachers were capable of seeing that they, like everyone has flaws and on occasion, perhaps they're method of teaching, or lesson is incorrect or while technically correct, could be a lesser way of doing it. But no, every teacher is god and their word is law. Question them and be banished

    • Half way empty is not specific enough, half way filled with water specifies what liquid is in the glass while saying it's half way. Saying something is half empty to someone that can't see the glass, will be followed up by them asking "what's the other half?"

    • It’s half full or half empty depending on what the contents of the glass. If it’s a commodity you need or want a large quantity of, it’s half empty (or only half full). If you don’t view it as something you need a lot of, it’s flipped. And for things that are negative: “the store is still half full

    • The glass is an empty container designed to hold liquid. Any amount of substance placed into the glass is therefore filling the glass. Full, half full, doesn’t matter. You may only describe the glass as half empty if you are comparing to a previous state. The glass was full and now is half empty.

    • That’s not how it works, the whole thing is talking about your view on things. You see a glass filled halfway with no context, and the assumption that you make is your view, whether that’s half empty or half full.
