This is a diagnostic research paper and aims to identify the extent to which Romanians perceive themselves to be optimistic or pessimistic, rich or poor, in the current socio-economic conditions. People register a significant decrease in optimism associated with generalized negative expectations in times of economic crisis. As the economic recession effect becomes more evident, we are sucked into a vicious circle of worries, fears, negative expectations, anxiety and frustration. It is easier to feel positive when everything around us goes well, but in difficult times, when the economic condition and government measures to overcome economic crisis are tough, it is easier to get into a state of negative thinking and self-pity.
