Optomist or Pessimist

I heard a question today on a radio program my husband and I was listening to on our way to get the car serviced. We talked about the question for a few minutes but I have been thinking about it today.
The question: Would I rather be uninformed and be optimistic about the future or well informed and pessimistic?
I said I would rather be optimistic; my husband wants to be informed sooo that should make him pessimistic. I would rather spend my whole life not knowing what is going to happen and just trust in the Lord to lead me through my life. I am the kind of person that if I dwell on the future or what may happen I get anxious. Anxiety makes me nauseous and panicky. My husband loves to be well informed although he stated it does not make him pessimist. (I have to say he is not a pessimist, most of the time.)
Which would you be? or do you have another opinion?

I like to be informed.Not necessarily pessimistic or because of fear. I just like to know what is going on. Snoopy could be another word for me. I am always reading the end of the book first. But the Lord has placed so many big circumstances in my life that is a wait and see thing that I think maybe he prefer I just be content with being uninformed.
