Top Definition
The desire for a thing or situation which is very unrealistic but persists as a desireable alternative to reality. Its accumulation in the psyche leads to the state of being wistful. In large enough amounts wist can even lead to cognitive dissonance and melancholy.
Abandoning pursuit of her childish dreams for a life of safe pragmatism, she was overcome by wist.
