Is the glass half full?

Is the glass half full?

Here's a twist on the 'Is the glass half full or half empty?' question which I really enjoyed.

Here's a twist on the 'Is the glass half full or half empty?' question which I really enjoyed.

I'm sure you have heard the question posed before. The audience or the individual is shown a glass half full of water and asked - "Is the glass half full or half empty?" And as you know, the motivated and positive people say 'half full' and the non-positive people say 'half empty'. Those are the only responses I've heard until recently.


Join other small business owners who are benefiting from new sales & marketing skills.

The story goes that someone down on their luck and desperately seeking a job was shown the glass and asked that question at an interview. His response, delivered in a very excited and forthright manner went as follows:

"Doesn't matter whether it's half full or half empty - it still has the same amount of liquid in it. I want a much bigger glass and I want it full to the top!!"

He got the job!
