Excessive Optimism

Carlotta is a dyed-in-the-wool optimist who sees no reason to plan because she just knows the future is going to be every bit as rosy as the present. She ignores threats, discards bad news when she hears it, and refuses to deal with obstacles that are staring her in the face. Her excessive zeal, need for immediate gratification and inability to distinguish reality from fantasy mislead her into believing that life is always going to be a bed of roses.

This blissful dreamer lacks the foresight she needs to adjust to sudden and unexpected problems. She has not disciplined herself to plan ahead, so she’s generally unable to respond when her house of cards comes tumbling down.
