    Default NF's how rapidly do your emotions change from moment to moment?

    I wish I could say that mine were less random as they are, but I can't, my emotions are subject to rapid change, sometimes for no reason whatsoever.

    I've been laughing with my friends, only to feel everything sink inside me as I hit rock bottom for a few minutes, maybe a day, depending on how much I fight it. I don't show it, not those inner storms that make no real sense to me, but there is no gentle plateau of emotions for me, it's a storm of up and down, sad then happy, loving, then cold, I am rarely one thing for very long.

    I can usually shake my head and bring myself back up when it happens in a crowd of friends, but sometimes I really do need to leave because no amount of inner debating or mental shakes can undo this random mood change and I don't won't to infect anyone else with this sickness lol.

    Different things trigger me off, one day a song can bring me great joy and be the kind of song you want to dance around your house to, the next day that same song will come on, and make me stop whatever I am doing, because I am battling intense sadness inside.

    Mostly I'm happy go lucky, I bounce through my disasters, sometimes I get knocked down and my Fi takes a battering, but I always get back up and laugh about it all.

    Am I just insane or do other NF's have extremely varying emotions throughout the day?

    Nope, you're not insane. One could go insane suffering these moodswings though *sigh*

    Depending on how bad mine are, I either conceal it or isolate myself, to deal with it.

    I only have two modes of being: numb or nuclear. The numb is indifference or neutral view on everything. The nuclear is either positive or negative. I look cool and calm, but my mind races like crazy from one end of the spectrum to another in a matter of seconds. And exactly, for no reason whatsoever.
    Sometimes I can brush it off but sometimes I have to analyze the emotions ad nauseam. The funny thing is, I actually consider myself sane and stable
    I can also unleash the inner beast. People close to me can vouch for that. But that doesn't happen very often. Most of the war is going on inside my mind

    Yay, it's an NF thing, and not a berb's gone mad thing lol.

    Same here, my mind goes racing off on a tangeant that was totally unrelated to whatever was happening around me, and in that losing of myself the mood change can happen.

    Yep, I can see this driving me slowly insane, if it hasn't already.

    1:21 PM: I love you so much!
    1:22 PM: You're so awful, I hate you!:steam:
    1:23 PM: I don't care about you. Who were you again?

    1:21 PM: I love life!
    1:22 PM: Life is senseless. I have to kill myself.
    1:23 PM: What's the definition of life?

    Haha yeah, it goes a little something like that for me too, I especially love the last part. Because that's usually where it ends up.

    Oh no doubt, they have some hidden F lol but getting them to admit it's an emotional reaction is a whole other story.

    No, they rarely vary unless something "hits me" from outside. If I'm depressed, it's for about a month or more.(perfect example: I've been in total depression for about a month now but it's fading a bit off because I went out with friends and laughed a little) If I'm in a good mood it's again for about three weeks a month. If someone insults me, I'll be offended for...eternity xD and the same goes with positive feedback.

    However I've noticed that if I'm around people who are not too stable emotionally I get drained or start "absorbing" theirs so it becomes a real roller coaster.
    That's why I stay away from negative people, constant whiners and the likes.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    I ride on an emotional roller coaster throughout the day, hour to hour. I fucking hate it. I guess I'll be happy that the downs and ups are equal.
