It means that at least at that time, I was a tinge manic. My ups and downs, at least at that time, were higher and lower than most. My highs are still very high. The downs have evened out as I've become powerful enough as an adult to remove myself from stressors and triggers. I don't feel at any risk of bipolar disorder.
i'm a medium-energy-level person, i think. i hop between levels easily... i usually start out the day pretty low-key but i'm easy to wind up. i guess i usually adapt my bodily energy level to meet my environment, which i suppose is a reasonable idea for an extravert.

hahaha noooo. i wish. it makes your mind do that, for sure, but actual bodily energy is kinda different. the situation i face is that when i'm in a go-go-go situation, i have no problem go-go-going, but if i need to get my ass moving and am not in that situation, it's hard to get motivated. being a P and an E is kind of a weird combo when it comes to this, i guess.
i get the weirdest feeling when i leave a really wound-up place too... it's like, all of a sudden, i get that feeling like right before you cry. a feeling of loss and emptiness, i guess. sometimes it's an okay feeling but other times i really hate it. it's like stimulation withdrawal or something. not sensory stimulation, necessarily, but... i dunno, thought stimulation. all of a sudden you're just left with yourself, and love myself though i do, with nothing occupying me anymore, my anxieties and actual tiredness can suddenly flood into my head. negative external things are easier to just fix and/or get pissed off at and blow off and/or simply ignore than my own negativity. it helps to have someone i love to come home to, just for the simple grounding and implied assurance - though living alone has helped me get more self-assured, too.

lol i know what you mean. especially if i'm with a significant other. i think it's fun to interact with everyone and get out and go places and explore but man is it nice to cuddle up and talk about it afterwards too.
I have moderate energy. There are days when I can lazily do nothing and be fine with it, but there are days when I have to accomplish something.
This is especially the case when I have a routine of activity- I need to get out and move at least once a day at those times.
I'll give you the insignificant details, as I'm bored and feel like talking about myself .
Currently, I wake up anywhere from 7-9am and get to classes on Mon-Fri. After those, I change and head to my Zumba classes a few times a week. Then it's a lot of homework, bothering my Dad, and/or karaoke. On the weekends, I drag my Dad somewhere if I have little intention of going out otherwise.
Basically, going to school and implementing a routine has destroyed much of my ability to just relaaax by myself.

I am very low energy. I can usually accomplish one significant thing a day. If I do more, then I will pay for it the following days & not accomplish much. I find pacing myself important, as well as not setting too many goals in too short a time frame, which only serves to make me disappointed with myself and agitated.
I can do some sort of work and still socialize later if the socializing is low-key, and especially if the work is not people-heavy. I do need a lot of down time doing "nothing" to just THINK and regain some mental energy. Dealing with people and accomplishing external tasks draws on my mental energy. External elements which ask less from me and are more about just taking in info drain me less - ie. reading or listening to music inspires thoughts, but I don't need to express anything externally.

The internet drains my energy level. Yet I always come back and end up staying awake for days just reading and foruming and playing games. When I have work to do and people to do it with, my energy is much higher. Sometimes an atmosphere can create an awesome buzz of energy in me, and similarly, a negative feeling will have me brooding and wishing I could do something about it. I've been feeling a bit too atuned and concerned about how other people are feeling and what they're thinking lately. Sort of Feelerish hmmm... I have just been motivated to do some homework now, coupled with naps because I haven't slept all night
