Someone who thinks of things in a realistic manor. An opposite of a realistic is a hopeless romantic.
For example ; you don't have dreams about fairy tales or love. You just go with the flow, basically. & let things fall into place without over thinking. A realistic is someone who might not believe in love unless proved wrong.

Realists have a firm grip on reality and can see things for what they are, not what they are told they are. Realists have their own views and do not fall victim to propaganda, misconception, or titles!
1. There is the Pessimist who believes the glass is half empty!

2. There is the Optimist who believes the glass is half full!

3. Then there is the Realist who knows it is just half a fucking glass!

For a realist, the glass is neither half full nor half empty, it merely has approximately half of it's space, presumably allotted for liquid content, used.
A realist tends to see and accept things, situations, and people just as they are.

A person who believes in facts to determine truth. Either deeply Objective or extremely Subjective.
Often used to describe people who'se political views hold no right/left-wing loyalty and instead use objective information in order to determine their stances on issues.
Also a term used to describe Atheists and Agnostics incorrectly. Realists are often Atheists and/or Agnostics because Theism goes against their nature to believe only facts and instead rely on faith.
Realists suffer from trust/confidence issues and are often apathetic because they uaually refuse to act without knowing the reprocussions beforehand. Realist's don't normally react well to society because of their refusal to fall under social categories and because their lack of trust in others often forms ego problems.
Non-Realist: "The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were our only hope to defeating Japan."
Realist: "According to General MacArthur, General Eisenhower, General Spaatz, Fleet Admiral Nimitz, and many other extremely high ranking US officials in charge of the pacific at the time both bombs were extremely unnecessary as Japan would have surrendered regardless. Actually the bombs played little effect as the Russians taking Manchuria is what ultimately made Japan surrender. The Atomic bombs were really nothing more than a giant war crime that Truman got away with."

Realists are the only people in the world that truly understand the earth and what needs to be done to make it better. They do not fear the majority that will undoubtedly be apposed to any action politically that would work

Right-wingers and Left-wingers may call a realist a Fascist but this is not true, a Realist purely understand that certain measures must be taken to prevent problems from occurs, usually going to the source. A realist will take inspiration from the working of nature.

Realist are not blurred by politics they are fed daily.
My realist statement of the day is:
"How do animals teach their young to stop doing something that is wrong? They strike/bite them when they do that certain thing...the young then understands the consequence of this action and does not do it. So making corporal punishment in schools filled with many potential irritations illegal was ridiculous, schools aren't failing the children our government is not disciplining children and they are growing into undisciplined adults. (Criminals)

realist someone who tries to see things as they are not as he would like them to be. a realist knows that a thing may be logical or necessary but still not right. a realist sees that all things have a cost the question is who pays,when,and how much.
