A more efficient way of calling someone an optimistic realist. One becomes "optoreal" when he or she understands what will most likely occur, but nevertheless haphazardly hopes for the best possible outcome.
"I have conjunctivitis. I don't think I'll go to school tomorrow to make sure no one else catches it, even though I think it will be gone by tonight."
"Oh, I didn't know you were optoreal!!"
