    I heard another ENFP here say she was a "mood animal". Maybe it has to do with your Fi. You internalize other people's feeling.

    Yea maybe and the P means we internalize those that are not verbalized? Hence sometimes we are unaware that the process is taking place.

    It's been a bit of trouble with Sis. She's not used to being under the thumb of a "bad" mood. She's been very sad lately, and I know why, but I can't fix it (and my kneejerk is to ALWAYS try and fix it).

    I'm variable by nature, and expect to plunged into deep wells off and on during the course of a day whether I outwardly react or not. Sometimes, as you say, you have no idea what sent you over until much later when you have a chance to examine it.

    I tend to see injustice, pain, fear etc and somehow absorb it. I'll drop into a dark mood when I feel I can effect no change on the situation.

    I also get the feeling sometimes like dealing with people and their emotions is like running through a gun battle, and you're just trying not to get struck, or struck in a really bad spot.

    Go volunteer at an old folks home. Or, call some people who are alone on the holidays. It makes you feel good. Thinking of others is a good way for me to snap out of a dark mood.

    Yea Pink definately know what you mean about not being used to it.. Iam certainly not a moody person in anyway and so when one does sneak up on me it gets me down usually cos I have not built up a nank of coping strategies!

    But that's the problem, Syn. I think about others constantly. It's what causes the roller coaster in the first place.

    Think about them without relation to yourself? Not saying you're wrong. I guess I am just trying to identify ways to get out of your own head.

    Wow. Ah. I don't know how to do that. Heaven knows I have to put forth conscious effort to do it too, but it's like a dolphin having to THINK about breathing. Know what I mean?

    Again, something NTs have over me (and my sister too, who can choose her moods more readily than I can... perhaps it's a strength of Ne?).

    No, I understand. The trick may be helping people in order to make me feel like I'm changing something bad or righting a wrong which in turn would lighten my mood?

    The mind cannot think of two things at once, just like you cannot have two conversations at once (I talked about this last night, as a matter of fact). So, in focusing on others we do something that we can feel good about and we are around people who can teach us and share with us good examples for living.

    I am similar to you Pink... I emphathise and so feel the pain of others as if it were my own... Its not something I consciously do it's just what happens when i am around the energy of others or think about them...
