    Mostly 'meh'. Neither negative nor positive unless I stop to think about it, in which case it's mostly on the positive side of the middle line. But I don't notice it unless it goes quite extremely to one end or the other, even if others notice it, and it has to be pretty sudden. Strong emotions that sorta 'brew' up over a period go completely unnoticed by me or anyone else, unless they really know what to look for, and even though I know what to look for, I still often don't notice until very late.

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past?
    Yes, of course. Though I find it hard to manifest some positive emotions, such as affection - always found it extremely hard to deliberately touch people at all, and there have been a few times when I've really wanted to hug someone but been totally unable to. Or even just touch their arm or shoulder in sympathy. This problem hasn't generally existed with my kids except that as my eldest daughter has gotten older I've found myself feeling less and less 'natural' with hugging her.

    3. Do you:

    [INDENT]A. Actively avoid dealing with anything related to emotion?
    Usually not actively. It just happens, I mean, I don't notice that emotions have anything to do with anything.

    B. Find that emotion is something you tend to overlook/undervalue at times, and can deal with fairly well once it's brought to your attention?
    I wouldn't say undervalue so much as overlook, but still yes, undervalue, though again, not deliberately. I tend to think of them as fleeting and not enduring, changeable and therefore unreliable and not worth basing decisions on that have lasting effects. If I find I really enjoy the company of someone who doesn't seem to like me much, I just repress it and consciously tell myself to stop being stupid. I try to find ways to look at it so that I can feel neutral towards them again - I don't like the uneven balance of power that gives, when someone has the upper hand over me like that, I don't want them to know about it.

    C. Enjoy dealing with emotions when they come along?
    Well... I don't really deal with them. Negative ones I just ignore as much as possible and positive ones I just go with, if I notice them, though sometimes repress those too.

    D. Actively seek to deal with the emotions in a given situation?
    Sometimes, as above. The usual way I deal with them if I notice them at all, is to either ignore them or repress them. Unless it's a really positive emotion and it's 'safe' to show it, like if I'm with a close friend who knows me well and I feel secure with.

    4. What do you experience when you perceive positive emotion in others towards yourself?

    A. Disgust/irritation.
    B. Embarrassment or fear.
    C. Curiosity.
    D. Warmth/compassion.
    E. Other (please explain).
    Could be any of the above, depending how I feel about the person. If it's someone I don't know and feel neutral towards, I feel apprehensive. Usually I feel confused - I don't know why they feel that way towards me, and also I feel a bit like, well, incredulous - I find it very hard to actually believe they feel that way, and tend to think they're affecting it for some reason. One category of 'irritating people' for me is people who 'fawn' over me and sorta follow me around and agree with me all the time and try to impress me.

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    Yes, greatly. If it's expressed in just doing things for me, or a general pattern of behaviour over a period of time (so I can see if it's just a transient thing or an abiding attitude), it'll thaw me out a bit. But if people just gush at me, I can handle it for a few seconds but they'd better stop after one 'go', cos if they round on me for another go I'll feel decidedly uncomfortable.

    But hugging is very weird - as I've said, I'd never initiate it, but sometimes, in the right context, I can find it a pleasant surprise. Yes, I think that's it - they have to catch me by surprise. If they announce that they're going to hug me before they do, I'll have totally tensed up by the time they get to me, and I'll be backing off.

    6. What do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others towards yourself?

    A. Indifference/Apathy.
    B. Confusion.
    C. Anxiety.
    D. Pain, anger, or sadness.
    E. Other (please explain).
    Usually, first off, curiosity. I wonder what it is I've done that's caused it - but not in a guilty, sad way, just a purely curious way, puzzled but not emotionally involved. In fact I feel less 'concerned' about it the closer I am to the person, because I figure if it's someone I've been on good terms with for a long time, then the relationship isn't under any real threat from a single display of emotion - as I said, they're temporary/transient, so I don't tend to fear them having long-term effects, because any decisions made now under the influence of negative ones can be changed later if I can generate positive ones.

    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    Yes. This time, if they explicitly express it, I'm glad and grateful, I prefer to be told directly and clearly if someone has a problem - I really, really do. If they try to 'tell' me by hints or 'gestures' (not hand type gestures but y'know, 'doing' things thinking it'll 'show' me), then if I do actually pick up on it, it'll make me feel irritated, frustrated and somewhat insulted.

    1. Is the experience of emotion for you mostly negative, mostly positive, or a reasonable amount of both? The experience of emotion for me is situational, based on who I am with. Most of the people in my life are deeply unhappy for various reasons right now, so I experience high levels of unhappiness for myself and on their behalf.

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past? Until I went to college, I had my emotions manifest positively by far most of the time. I had an amazing childhood.

    3. I actively seek to deal with the emotions in a given situation. I have to process them or they will take over my life.

    4. Which of these do you experience when you perceive positive emotion in others expressed towards yourself? Wistful gratitude--my heart just opens up gratefully and disbelievingly, because I have almost no self esteem.

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how? No. If it is implicitly expressed I do not recognize it.

    6. Which of these do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others expressed towards yourself? Pain and sadness.

    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how? No. I even imagine people have negative emotions about me when they don't.


    I hope this helps your research!

    1. Is the experience of emotion for you mostly negative, mostly positive, or a reasonable amount of both?
    Both. Quite strong, but can vary.

    Yes, in both ways.

    3. Do you:

    A. Actively avoid dealing with anything related to emotion?

    B. Find that emotion is something you tend to overlook/undervalue at times, and can deal with fairly well once it's brought to your attention?

    C. Enjoy dealing with emotions when they come along?

    D. Actively seek to deal with the emotions in a given situation?


    C, but I occasionally try to suppress them when I find them inconvenient.

    A. Disgust/irritation.

    B. Embarrassment or fear.

    C. Curiosity.

    D. Warmth/compassion.

    E. Other (please explain).


    D

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?

    The more implicit, the more C. The more explicit, the more A or B (but only if it is VIOLENTLY positive...however I still have the D no matter what).

    A. Indifference/Apathy.

    B. Confusion.

    Usually indifference/apathy or irritation, if it is uncalled for, depending on how rude it is made. If it is understandable, then B, C, or D.

    The more explicit, the more anger and irritation; possibly confusion. The more implicit and the closer I am to the person, the more sadness and anxiety.

    Generally positive. When it' negative, it's in concentrated amounts in short times.

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past?
    Well, yes, as I explained above. It's part of human nature I believe.

    3. Do you:
    C


    4. Which of these do you experience when you perceive positive emotion in others expressed towards yourself?
    E. Other (please explain) - I feel happy?

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    Expressing in my opinion means explicitly. If by implicitly you mean via gestures, then no it doesn't change.

    6. Which of these do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others expressed towards yourself?
    Anger strong anger

    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    I tend to prefer explicitly. Implicit negative emotions (passive-aggressivness) just make me angrier.

    BTW, this is exclusively meant to be contextual to either a romantic relationship and/or close family and friends, because with strangers and acquaintances I don't really express that many emotions at all.

    I'm not really certain what you mean by this question. For me because my emotional state is consistent and hard to alter it's neither positive or negative. It's just my underlining state, like being tiered or motivated. Neutral.

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past?
    Neither. I actively control my emotional state.

    3. Do you:
    A. Actively avoid dealing with anything related to emotion?

    B. Find that emotion is something you tend to overlook/undervalue at times, and can deal with fairly well once it's brought to your attention?

    A. Disgust/irritation.

    B. Embarrassment or fear.

    C. Curiosity.

    D. Warmth/compassion.

    E. Other (please explain).
    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    Well yes. Certain implicit expressions cause a feeling of warmth and appreciation. Explicit are always irritating.

    6. Which of these do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others expressed towards yourself?
    A. Indifference/Apathy.

    B. Confusion.

    C. Anxiety.

    D. Pain, anger, or sadness.

    E. Other (please explain).
    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    Very negative emotions causes me to "fight back".

    1. Is the experience of emotion for you mostly negative, mostly positive, or a reasonable amount of both?

    Almost always positive.

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past?

    Yes.

    D. Actively seek to deal with the emotions in a given situation?

    D. Warmth/compassion.

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?

    Maybe a bit more reserved and tentative if implicitly. I may want to be careful I have read the situation correctly before responding too enthusiastically and risking embarassment or rejection.

    6. Which of these do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others expressed towards yourself?

    B. Confusion.

    C. Anxiety.

    D. Pain, anger, or sadness.


    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?

    Not really.

    1. Is the experience of emotion for you mostly negative, mostly positive, or a reasonable amount of both?
    Expression of emotion for me can be positive, but more often than not it is manifested in a negative manner, due to internal sharp mood swings (I'm an introvert, so these changes in mood are not readily apparent to others).

    2. Have your emotions manifested in both positive and negative ways for you in the past?
    Certainly. I experience strong emotions when a sports team that I like wins a game and, when my mood swings manifest themselves and become apparent to others (you don't want to be around when that occurs), my emotions become incredibly negative and tend to affect others. Actually, I notice that my change in demeanour affects others, who do not expect that kind of thing from me.

    3. Do you:

    A. Actively avoid dealing with anything related to emotion?
    Not as far as I can tell.

    B. Find that emotion is something you tend to overlook/undervalue at times, and can deal with fairly well once it's brought to your attention?
    Occassionally, like the majority of people, but not too often. Once I realise that emotion is overwhelming me, I can deal with it, but not before.

    C. Enjoy dealing with emotions when they come along?
    No.

    D. Actively seek to deal with the emotions in a given situation?
    When I feel that my emotions will overpower me, as they can do, yes.

    4. Which of these do you experience when you perceive positive emotion in others expressed towards yourself?

    A. Disgust/irritation.
    No!

    B. Embarrassment or fear.
    Not embarrassment; perhaps fear if I distrust the individual in question. But fear is such an extreme word in this context.

    C. Curiosity.
    Yes.

    D. Warmth/compassion.
    Well, if I detect positive emotion in someone towards me, I will smile knowingly at them, thus encouraging them to do it more. That aside, it's not that likely that I'll talk to them more unless I know them well.

    5. Does your response to #4 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    My reactions above deal with reactions to explicit positive emotion. As for implicit positive emotion, only C and D would apply, with real emphasis on the C. For you see, I'm not very good at interpreting complex or suggestive body language, so I'll probably get it wrong if I think a person has implicitly directed positive emotion towards me, which I why I feel more curiosity and no embarrassment.

    6. Which of these do you experience when you perceive negative emotion in others expressed towards yourself?

    A. Indifference/Apathy.
    No, unless I dislike the individual.

    B. Confusion.
    Yes, although the level of confusion varies depending on the individual.

    C. Anxiety.

    D. Pain, anger, or sadness.
    Yes, in equal quantities, although this becomes a mere pin-prick if I dislike the person.

    7. Does your response to #6 change depending on whether the emotion is explicitly or implicitly expressed? If so, how?
    My above answers entail reactions to explicit negative emotion. B, C, D would still apply for implicit negative emotion, except with a dash of paranoia thrown in as well, due to my aforementioned lack of skill at deciphering more complex body language.
