Is that cynical?
Actually, it's called Critical or Analytical thinking...
Cynicism is a negative perception of something that doesn't neccessairily involve evaluation of the topic in the larger context, something like:
"There is no good left in the world, people will never change, and I might as well become evil too!".
^^^^That's some pretty bad cynicism (or pessimism) though, hopefully most people don't ever get that cynical
