Re: What's your "natural" emotional state? - July 15th 2009, 04:55 PM

voted: numb

if things are silent or somesuch situation, i stare into space and do nothing. when i'm not pulling a particular expression i look a little sad. my mouth flatlines =l and people think i'm upset. i'm usually not, just spacey.
numb was the closest option to that.
it could be worse =)

I tend to be a generally happy person, and if I'm not happy, I tend to put on a mask and pretend I am. Not sure whether thats good or not..

Everyone mistakes my usual mood for sad but it's kind of confusing...I give off a melanchaly vibe but when you get to know me, I'm an explosion of happiness, haha.
My best friend blames it on my "artisticness" haha

Im typically depressed. I don't really know why though.

I'm always happy. People say that my face is frozen upward. But thats only in public. Lately I've been happy when I'm alone but usually I get more depressed when I'm by myself and sometimes I'm numb. The only time I'm not happy in public is when something sets me off then I just go quiet and try not to be noticed.

'Numb' would be best suited to my norm at this point in time, though my true natural emotional state I have yet to pin down.

I do act out happily at times and sadly at others, though my inner self remains indifferent until some strong outside stimulus can provoke a reaction from me.

im usually always very depressed or suicidal

i dont get angry much.
i am almost never happy. i can be excited or energetic but im almost never happy. i do a good job of pretending to be happy though.
and im not even sure what it would feel like to be numb.

I'm always depressed, but i hide my feelings well. So when i link up with friends, i'll be all cheery; but it's a front. At home my depression turns me into a hate-fuelled monster and thus i always explode and shout the odds, every little thing irritates me at home so yeah. If i was happy; i guess i wouldn't lash out as much.

I'm not sure how to answer that because it doesn't seem to be any. I get very down a lot, but it's not like fully fledged depression, and I'm never really happy like all smiling and being all high on life sort of thing.. Numb makes me sound emotionless or apathetic which I'm not, but since everyone who seems to have similar things to me seems to put it, I might as well go for that.

I voted Depressed, because even though i'm a lot happier in my life now, a core melancholy built up over many years still resides.

I added the “other” option, because there are a ton of other emotional states out there.

"Other" for me. I'm usually in a pensive mood; be it happy, depressed, sad, or cynical, I'm usually thinking quite hard about something.

I voted happy. I'm usually pretty happy and hyper and upbeat. Granted, there are times when I get sad, but it passes pretty quickly.

Numb. It takes a lot to tip my scales one way or another, as I usually take an apathetic and fairly unbiased approach towards most situations. My friends always think of me as the perfect judge, and usually come to me when they need help with anything.

though be warned, if you do something to actually tip my weighted scales, i go into wild mood swings that could best be described as bipolar. I have seriously gone through a week where one day i was happy (quite uncommon actually, due to the whole scales thing), then the next I contemplated suicide. fortunately a friend noticed and got to me in time, so i spent the next day in complete bliss for my life being saved, before the smallest thing tipped me off again.

I'm a happy person.
It's the best attitude towards life, but definitely not the only one.
It's just harder I think to live your life in anger, you just provoke resistance, which makes you even angrier... and i guess by being positive, you get the same feedback, positive

Although I always critisize hard and speak my mind outloud. Because being happy and naive could really backfire

I voted angry, but it's weird. On TH I'm a pretty happy guy, most people see that I think.

But if you were to meet me on the street, you'd think I was planning your murder or something. I have this naturally angry undertone that tends to put people off.
