    happy, yes, but happiness is a transient feeling.

    satisfied/fulfilled? rarely. NF idealism tends to inhibit a sense of long-term satisfaction.. we're always striving for more.

    so long as the striving and idealizing produces some contentment or happiness, i don't see this as particularly problematic.

    My life is okay. It's good, but it has a few flaws. It's sad, but I don't mind. I just hope things will get better eventually (and I think they will).
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    No, and I wouldn't call myself happy even if I were. Happiness is a closed book, a finished journey. You experience it when you've accomplished something and have nothing to accomplish. Happiness is an empty stomach that feels full. Of course, I want to be happy--who doesn't?--but I'll never be.

    I call myself Carolyn, but yes, most of the time I'm happy. And when I'm not I'm pissed or sad.

    No, but I most definitely wouldn't call myself unhappy or depressed.

    I would say that I'm happy. I think being happy helps me jump out of my comfort zone and continue to grow. In order to remain happy I need to grow.
