1. In uncertain times I usually expect the best. (U neizvesnim situacijama, obic̆no oc̆ekujem najbolji ishod)
3. If something can go wrong for me, it will. (Ako nes̆to moz̆e da mi krene po zlu, sigurno i hoće).
4. I am always optimistic about my future. (Uvek sam optimistic̆an u vezi moje buducīnosti)
7. I hardly ever expect things to go my way. (Gotovo nikada ne oc̆ekujem da će se stvari odvijati onako kako ja z̆elim)
9. I rarely count on good things happening to me. (Retko rac̆unam na to da će mi se desiti dobre stvari)
10. Overall, I expect more good things to happen to me than bad. (Uglavnom oc̆ekujem da će mi se desiti vis̆e dobrih nego los̆ih stvari)
