receiver option vs. payer option

In Scheswer Book 5, p. 319 it says that “In a receiver option, the option buyer has the right to sell a CDS (go long the underlying) at some future date. An investor with a bearish outlook would BUY a receiver option in anticipation of tightening credit spreads” “In a payer option, the option buyer has the right to buy a CDS (go long the underlying) at some future date. An investor with a bearish outlook would buy a payer option in anticipation of widening credit spreads” Second quote makes perfect sense. As for the First quote, if we have a bearish outlook, shouldnt it be for an investor with a BULLISH outlook? Thanks

i think you are right, if one is selling a CDS i.e. one is selling insurance on the underlying and so he is BULLISH on the underlying.
