Through the Looking Glass

Optimist’s View:       Glass is half full
Pessimist’s View:      Glass is half empty

This is the classic example of contrary view points. I have added some more views and copy/pasted some from various websites.

Banker’s View:               The glass has just under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets.

Government’s view:       The glass is fuller than if the opposition party were in power.
Opposition’s View:          The present administration has changed the way such volume statistics are collected.
Philosopher’s View:        If the glass was in the forest and no one was there to see it, would it be half anything?
Drunkard’s View:           Throw out this water. Put in some Scotch
Existentialist’s View:      The glass is.
Fatalist’s View:               The water will evaporate.

Actuary’s View:              You might live long enough to enjoy the water
Engineer’s View:             The glass is twice as large as its necessary parameters.
Physicist’s View:             The cylinder is neither full nor empty. Rather, each half of the cylinder is full, one with a liquid, one with a gas.
Logician’s View:               Please define ‘glass’ more precisely.
Mathematician’s View:   I don’t know if it’s half-full or half-empty, but I can tell you an answer exists!
PC User’s View:              Let’s restart it and maybe it will fill up this time.
Apple User’s View:         Steve Jobs invented water or at least made it much better!
Microsoft’s View:            The rest of the water will be in the next release.

Can you add some more of your own?
