Does anyone believe that the statement you give is linked to whether you are optimistic or pessimistic?

I think it also depends on the context of the situation. If you were pouring water into a glass you'd probably be more likely to say that it's half full, while if you were drinking out of it the opposite would apply. The reasoning is common sense.
it's all based on some reasoning patterns your brain learns to follow during the first years of your life, it has nothing to do with personality traits
