A survey of dark moods: Attraction, preference and tolerance to them.
I'd like to understand this topic in order to understand one individual in my life and get along with that person better. Perhaps this is a common theme I'm willing to understand - so perhaps this survey will help other persons than me, as well.
I'm trying to find what kind of factors lead to people being tolerant of dark moods, and what part of the amount of internal and external stress plays in their lives. I'm also trying to find how life skills and achievement work into it.
How much do you agree to each the following statements?
1: Strongly disagree
2: Somewhat disagree
3: Neither agree or disagree
4: Somewhat agree
5: Strongly agree
