I should probably take the test again, rethink such questions and perhaps be a little more honest with myself.
    See, I answer based on how I feel, which is likely why I test moderately high on Limbic. In person, I've actually had people remark that I always seem calm. I laugh to myself when they say this .
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I think I must be more in denial. Anyone that is around when I'm cooking could see how freakin' limbic I am. Its even worse if they ask me questions or try to help.

    So I took the test again and got 58%...

    I think limbic vs calm might vary the most out of all the big 5 dimensions, like does being calm mean you NEVER get very depressed, angry, and exicted or does it mean on average you tend to have stable moods with the occasionally moody phase. I have definitely been depressed before but on the whole I have very stable mood patterns, that's why I label myself as calm.

    Limbic is probably going to sound negative because to is based on "negative" emotion according to the big 5, it lumps "positive" emotion with extroversion which I think is flawed. So a "calm" introvert like myself rarely experiences very high and low moods, just basically a neutral person, a "limbic" introvert sounds mostly depressed and sad. Introverts are made to be unhappy by definition according to the big 5, a "calm" extrovert is mostly in positive emotional states while "limbic "extroverts swing more between high and low moods according to the big 5.

    Same here. For instance, if someone steals a cab rigt in front of me, I immediately "feel" outraged, but I don't show it, and I get over t pretty quickly.

    If someone calls me anorexic, I get annoyed, but I don't show it, and I move on pretty easily.

    I'm usually the most calm out of anyone during crises.

    For instance, rather than yelling at my employee when he accidentally shredded an important, urgent document with confidential, time-sensitive info, we brainstormed alternative ways to retrieve the necessary information. No problemo, lesson learned.

    But little stupid things can temporarily irritate me. By virtue of feeling these emotions, I'm Limbic, and probably a Feeler.

    Moreover, I nearly never get truly depressed/ecstatic. The mood fluctuations are much smaller - neutral, irritated, amused. Except with high quality music - that can leave me ecstatic.

    I just find it hard to believe that people can really go through life without ever worrying/being annoyed -- calm.
