My first thought was, no shit. Some definitions of optimism are:
1. The tendency to expect the best and see the best in all things
2. Hopefulness; confidence

These kinds of articles make me want to get my PhD and do research. Because some group of people got a lot of money to do research on this subject. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I'm just saying.
