    Default crying

    This is honest to goodness me. I DO cry, but ... I honestly can't remember the last time I cried. More likely to get a bit misty eyed for some sentimental reason, or seeing pain (physical/mental).

    I definitely NEVER cry in public.

    Definitely me as well. People overcoming adversity and struggle in inspirational fashion? It's a done deal (misting, not crying). I also tend to mist with images of people being persecuted or oppressed. It takes something pretty heavy to make me cry fully, though.

    When the beauty of life, the absurdity and suffering and joy is concentrated in any of the artistic mediums, I freely shed my tears.

    INFPs tell me, does this make you cry?

    For my own personal circumstances, no so much. I'll cry for you, though.

    I've always thought that I cry more than anyone else I know. I feel like I spend an obscene amount of my life crying. It's not always for good reasons either. Mostly it's out of frustration due to lack of understanding of people around me.

    I had quite the cry on Wednesday.

    It was very intesne.
    I was listening to music, something I have mostly avoided for a while because I have feared the emotional repsonse it could trigger in me.
    SO I decided on a "safe" band.. something I couldn't really attach any sensitments or emotions to. or nothing recent anyway.
    Cold Play. I was doing fine.. Then I put on Fix You.. a song I dont really know that well and I was not too sure what the lyrics were about.
    I got to the part where the song starts saying "tears roll down your face, when you lose what you can't replace" and it was like a flood.. I am not sure if it was just the suggestion of the lyrics ot the actual message in them.. But I started bawling.. And I couldn't stop for almost 20 minutes. A lot of stuff went though my head, a lot of stuff I have been avoiding,and I guess I needed to cry about. It was catharsis at it's finest. Have I had a realization?
    Yeah.. everything has changed .

    My eyes are incapable of crying at this point in my life. Replaced with laser beams or something cool like that. Tear ducts are only there to clean your face if you're wounded and bleeding. Are you some ardent kick boxer or something? Didn't think so - you're an INFP. You ain't bleeding, so there's no reason to cry. Go home.

    I usually only cry when I get overwhelmed, and even then, it's usually only in private when things build up and build up. In the initial stages of overwhelm I'll probably just start getting cranky or stonewalling or both.

    There have been a couple of times when I cried in public but once was when I was a kid being picked on by a teacher, the other time I was going along fine when my boss brought up an uncomfortable topic and I just started crying, but I managed to stop pretty quickly.

    There have most definitely been times in my life when I wanted to cry but couldn't, a lot of times like that. There have also been some times when I wanted to cry but held it in, like when my aunt's cat was put down and I wanted to be strong for her.

    I vaguely remember crying about three years ago. Nowadays I just get very sad.

    It varies wildly depending on how various areas of my life (especially personal connections and how I'm regarding myself) are going. I've gone months without crying, of feeling really thick-skinned and genuinely happy and confident. I've had others where I was generally happy but easily moved and still somewhat in touch with darker feelings. (Those are actually some of my favorite times.) And there have been times when I cried nearly every day, and not the good cathartic kind of crying: more like the 'staring down a dark hole' type of crying.

    About half the time when I cry it's actually in response to beauty and is a positive, cathartic experience. I almost exclusively cry alone, except for in very stressful or sad interpersonal situations, or when I have a rare volcanic outburst of emotion that seems to come out of nowhere.
