Thread: Whats your stance to melodrama? (esp. To those with 4w3 in triad)

  1. #31


    I engage in melodrama when I can also achieve something. When I create art, I use my own very intense feelings and I don't hold anything back. I'm also melodramatic when I'm trying to entertain others or get a reaction. I look down on messy emotional displays though.
    I really like cats and food.

    - observing
    - performing
    - artistic pursuits
    - reading
    - listening to more intense music

    as for being in the heat of's usually a position they'd rather avoid
    I think this is very true. I also have a tendency to use a lot of hyperbole, which I can see as "controlled melodrama" as well.

But what I mean is, it can make me think, or examine some of the more tender emotions in myself, or if nothing else, it's interesting.

    However, if people are causing drama by being obnoxious to others, or to me, that's a problem. It's one thing to wallow in emotions - that is the stuff of art, music, and fantasy. It's another thing to take your crap out on someone else and ruin their life. I do my best to take responsibility for my own actions. When someone tries to blame me - or someone I care about - for their problems, they have another thing coming.
    I can agree with this. An honest expression of emotion is one thing, but I find drama for drama's sake or with the intent to manipulate fairly distasteful.

    My stance on melodrama is a pretty droopy one, almost falling over.
