    Question Why do you cry?

    I am posting this as a mature topic and people will probably feel more comfortable in this section.


    This is how I see it

    In many cases this is a female thing.
    Usually something happens or something says something and then the hurt person trys to control itself. It look as the person is trying to swallow something and then he/she cracks and person is all tears in a second.


    What I am interested in is what happens in your head that something like this happens?
    I am tring to undersand what has to happen that grown up starts to cry.


    Also I am aware that I am asking quite hard question and that the answer can be hard to put into words.


    As for me I don't cry at all if we overlook some situations from an early childhood. What was probably more instinctive then when grow up people cry. Also I don't feel the need to cry.
    This was to make it more clear why I am asking the question.

    I cry when I feel very emotionally addressed - when something really gets to the Fi. It can be good or bad, it's not just sadness at all, it just means emotion to me. E.g. I might cry when I have to leave my family at the airport for an extended period of time, but this isn't necessarily because I'm sad or I'll miss them or I don't want to go, it's more about feeling the symbolic and emotional power of the concept of "goodbye" in your core at that moment. It helps to be really tired to be receptive to this symbolic and emotional power.

    I have several triggers for crying. Mostly being deeply touched or utterly sad will do it. But severe anger and frustration will do the trick as well. It's a release mechanism for me. It means my emotions are so built up inside, they need a way out. Kinda like yelling or venting

    Emotional release. Woohoo.

    I think Antisocial one might be hinting more at the Fe side of things.

    What happens in my head...

    I have an emotional response to what is in front of me.
    For me somebody doing something really nice for me will flood my banks.
    Hurt just makes me angry.

    Funny that when I think about it.

    I cry when I feel sad, overwhelmed and betrayed. I more or less only cry when I get dumped. Like right now. Cried like a wee baby yesterday for several hours >.<

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    I don't, and haven't since I was about 10 years old...

    But, I'm...um, a bit unemotional, and extremely unemotional as far as showing emotion goes...

    Empathy usually triggers crying responses. When it comes to something emotionally affecting me though--say, when someone I knew died, etc... I tend to cry only when I'm by myself. I feel like I must be rigid when around people I know when it comes to situations like that. Not that I'm ashamed of my emotion.. but more that showing emotion during these times will deter people from using me as support.

    As a side note, I think it's extremely annoying when people claim they won't cry at anything. If you simply just don't cry, and it's difficult to produce tears for you even if there's extreme sadness as an emotion involved.. all cool.. But it just irritates me when people brag about it like it somehow validates them as awesome. That sort of thinking only shows me immaturity by equating inferiority with emotion.
