In my experience, people are contradictory by nature. In reading works by people such as A. O. Spare, I've discovered that it might not necessarily be the best thing to try to label our behaviors and group ourselves extensively. Because as soon as I say that I have X attribute, I also notice how at the same time I can deviate to the other extreme just as easily. So to accept one and reject the other part of my personality requires repression of some sort. It's interesting to think about how we humans believe that we have to stick to one part of our personalities and remain consistent to live in society, when some of us aren't really designed for that. I've been in situations where people thought that I was one way, but I'm quite capable of showing a completely different side of my personality when I'm in another group of people. And if I show the side I show to the second group to the first, they either say, "Who are you?" or "Oh, I didn't know you were like *that*," as if I couldn't be both at once. Always exclusion of duality and opposites.
It correlates well with my emotional states, I believe, which have always been prone to vacillation.
When a person accepts that they can be X as well as Y without needing to exclude either, or by accepting that discriminations like X and Y are just illusions we all make to have reality be an easier place to live in, we find that our horizons widen that much more. And yet people become so attached to the notions that they have of themselves because they feel that they are unable to live without them. And it is those very attachments that deprive them of the happiness they desire. (Or depression. Sometimes feeling sad feels good, eh?)
