its just that i was watching something on tv and basicly every one knows of this trick question ” you full a glass half way , now is the glass half full or half empty?i was just wondering what majority will say empty or full?

  1. ConverseShoesRule
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full.

  2. Fairground
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full … try filling it all the way!

  3. FallingMoon
    on November 30th, -0001

  4. Chips
    on November 30th, -0001

    It is half full. I didn’t fill it all the way, just half full.

  5. BloodFlower
    on November 30th, -0001

    if it a “free” refills

  6. TheProposal
    on November 30th, -0001

    You answered your own question. you said; “you full a glass half way …” So it is half full.

  7. Cocktail
    on November 30th, -0001

    Lol, wat kinda question is this? Eh.
    :]

  8. Mayumi
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full.

  9. CaptainCrunch
    on November 30th, -0001

    I kind of think it depends on how old you are, if that makes sense.

  10. KoolKermit
    on November 30th, -0001

    I think it depends whether I’m still thirsty or not if I have had enough its half full if I want more…. its half empty

  11. PoPCorn
    on November 30th, -0001

    I say it’s half full. I’m optimistic.

  12. Orchid
    on November 30th, -0001

    I wouldn’t think it would make any difference, either way I am still gonna need my free re-fill before I pay my tab !!!

  13. oddperson
    on November 30th, -0001

    logically it is both

  14. Hippie
    on November 30th, -0001

    Well, if you just filled it up halfway, it is half full. If you emptied/drank it so that it was half, then it is half empty.

  15. SlightlyBitter
    on November 30th, -0001

    both

  16. CrispApple
    on November 30th, -0001

    Depends on your starting point…. if you start with an empty glass and fill it halfway, its half full; if you start with a full glass and empty it halfway, its half empty!

  17. Sunflower
    on November 30th, -0001

    well
    If i filled it up 2 th top drunk half
    then it wood b half empty
    if filed it half way it wood b half full

  18. Seashells
    on November 30th, -0001

    In this case half full=half empty but half full sounds nicer

  19. FunnyFish
    on November 30th, -0001

    both but really its half full because theres no lid on it

  20. ChickenLicken
    on November 30th, -0001

    Being an engineer I’d say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

  21. MorningAfter
    on November 30th, -0001

    Half full!

  22. Fantasies
    on November 30th, -0001

    simply half a glass:o)

  23. Newday

    I think people perceive this the same way they perceive their lives. Being the glass is half empty if you feel your not satisfied with your life because you feel you lack a lot things in your life. But then there’s those people who love everything about their life and are grateful for what they have these people look at the glass half full. They appreciate what they have.

Is the glass half-full or half-empty?

I think it depends–think about it. If someone is drinking a glass of water, then it is half-empty, because they are emptying it. If someone is pouring water into a glass, then it is half-full, because they are filling it up.

  1. Kiss
    on November 30th, -0001

    no, they r the same. It is like saying, “Am I taller than u, or r u shorter than me?” They re both the same, but saying it in a different way/

  2. Flutterby
    on November 30th, -0001

    that sounds right…

  3. Horsewisperer
    on November 30th, -0001

    ur rite…never thought about it before!!!!!!!!!!

  4. BlindPoet
    on November 30th, -0001

    I never thought of it that way

  5. NoName
    on November 30th, -0001

    i always thought if you say its half-empty that means it doesn’t have any water in it cuz its empty. its hard to explain what im thinking

  6. DawnsAwaken
    on November 30th, -0001

    Yes.

  7. Bluberry
    on November 30th, -0001

    – scratches head – confusing much….LOL

  8. CoffeeCup
    on November 30th, -0001

    It depends on your mood…a good mood means the glass is half full, but a bad day means it’s half empty. Today, the glass is half empty, but I may fill the glass tomorrow.

  9. WellBalanced
    on November 30th, -0001

    When I get asked that question I respond,
    “Who the h**l has been drinking out of my glass?”

  10. ChickenLicken
    on November 30th, -0001

    half full

  11. BlindPoet
    on November 30th, -0001

    That’s a good way to look at it.

  12. Wildthing
    on November 30th, -0001

    i always thought it meant the glass was the wrong size.

  13. DarkDesire
    on November 30th, -0001

    I agree with what you’re saying.

    If you’re emptying a glass, then the glass would be half empty. If you were filling the glass, the glass would be half full.

    Also, they say people’s answer to this question shows if the person thinks negative or positive.
    If a person automatically says “the glass is half empty”, they would be considered to have a negative veiw on things in general, and if answered “the glass is half full”, they would be considered to have a positive veiw on things in general.

  14. JetSki

    Yes I agree with that; it’s what I’ve been saying for years!

Is the glass half full or half empty?

if you start with a full glass and drink half is it half empty and if you start with an empty glass and put water to the half way point is it now half full?

  1. WellBalanced
    on November 30th, -0001

    was it ever all the way full?
    if so,,,, then half empty.
    and if not,,,,,half full.

  2. ChickenLicken
    on November 30th, -0001

    Its both, really, but from my perspective, empty

  3. BlindPoet
    on November 30th, -0001

    The glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

  4. Wildthing
    on November 30th, -0001

    its same thing

  5. DarkDesire

  6. JetSki

  7. Eli

  8. BloodFlower
    on November 30th, -0001

    The glass is too big!

  9. Hippie
    on November 30th, -0001

    The glass is half.Full or empty,ur choice of words.

  10. CaliforniaDream
    on November 30th, -0001

    possitive thinker will say glass is half full where as negative thinker will say glass is half empty.

  11. FallingMoon
    on November 30th, -0001

    By George, you’ve got it!! Actually, it depends upon whether you are an optimist or a pessimist as to whether the glass is half full or half empty.

  12. SoftballPlayer
    on November 30th, -0001

    You can say it anyway, But if you say it is half full then it sounds like you have a lot. If you say it is half empty then it sounds like you don’t have a lot.

  13. matrixmaruda
    on November 30th, -0001

    I believe it all depends on if you’re a pessimist or optimist. Personally, I’m a pessimist, & see it as half empty.

  14. Kea
    on November 30th, -0001

    half empty….

  15. Species
    on November 30th, -0001

    Always half full.

  16. SymphonyOfSound
    on November 30th, -0001

    Considering the starting point from which one proceeds to the midway point is one way to resolve the issue. Although the resolution is usually regarded as a determinant of an optimistic/pessimistic outlook. Typically the half-empty perspective is seen as pessmistic as the pessimist is seen to be complaining “things could be better, there could be more in the glass. Whereas the half-full perspective is seen as optimistic as the optimist is seen to be applauding “things could be worse, there could be less in the glass

  17. Zoe
    on November 30th, -0001

    Depends whether you want it to be more or less…if ur on a diet and the glass is half empty u myt as well drink da rest ryt?

  18. Rob
    on November 30th, -0001

    it depends on your mood.

  19. GodThingie
    on November 30th, -0001

    i think it is half empty, but it can be either one. it depends on how you see it, if you see it as half empty or half full.

  20. ShoeLover
    on November 30th, -0001

    It depends on what is in the glass!

  21. BlueButterFly
    on November 30th, -0001

    The glass is the wrong size. m

  22. FantasyFootball
    on November 30th, -0001

    The glass has not yet fulfilled it’s ultimate destiny

  23. Sunflower
    on November 30th, -0001

    That all depends on whether you are an optimist or a pessimist.or whether you are filling it or emptying it.

  9. Guineapig

  10. BlindPoet

    Half empty. Like you, I have low expectations about things, but am happy when things turn out better than I hoped. I’d rather be pleasantly surprised than get a huge let-down by being the eternal optimist!

  11. AgeingNature

    Whether the glass is half-empty, or half-full, one thing will always remain the same –

    You need a refil, and I say that not to make a joke either.

  21. WinterWonderland
    on November 30th, -0001

    i say, are you gonna drink that?

  22. MardyMarsupial
    on November 30th, -0001

    It all depends on whether you filled the glass with water (half-full),

    or already drank from a full glass (half-empty).

  23. FeeltheForce
    on November 30th, -0001

    if it’s full of sh*t…i’m a half-empty kinda guy;)

  24. Bullfrog
    on November 30th, -0001

    If a glass was filled half way. It is not half full or half empty, it is completely full. It is filled with a liquid (say water) and also with air. Since water and air are both fluids, they fill the glass completely. So it may seem like the glass is half full, if you do not specify of what, then it is all the way full.

    Sorry dude, I drink from the bottle.

    For the first poster above: By chance you just coined a funny word, ‘Cagarrete’, which for a Spanish speaker like me resembles a cigar-shaped floating turd.

  12. KittyInCollinder

    If I pour milk or wine into the glass to the half way point, the glass is half full. If I continue pouring the glass will become full. My glass is always full, until I dunk the first cookie or take the first sip.

  13. CookieMonster
    on November 30th, -0001

Is the Glass Half Full or Half Empty…?

…or do you forget the glass and chug from the container?

  1. FallingMoon

    Half full! And you can top it off if you like! But we never, ever chug from the container- it is a pet peeve.

Is the glass half full or half empty?

Either way it is unsanitary because I pissed in this glass.

  1. Guineapig
    on November 30th, -0001

    Quite the contrary. Urine is sterile. During WWII, British and Japanese that were trapped in caves or underground dwellings without a fresh water supply would drink their own urine to keep hydrated. Depending on your point of view…if you drink the piss, I suppose you would say, “The glass is truly empty!” …Have a nice day! 🙂

  2. BlindPoet
