    Something like... Pessimism > Nervousness > Frustration > Insecurity > Anxiety > Aloofness > Self-loathing > Cynicism, I guess?

    indignation, repulsion/disgust, dissatisfaction, scorn, resentment. I feel a frequent desire to punish and make things right when the world doesn't live up to my expectations and demands.
    ^this is probably not the most healthy state of mind to be in, though I can say it's a lot less severe than it was even a few months ago. best to look on the bright side I guess. progress is progress

    Cool stuff.

    I'll also say that I used to experience a lot of anxiety and self-doubt, especially as my career had just started to veer toward

    Good ol' anxiety. When I'm faced with a decision, I place myself in "wait and see" mode for just a lil' while, focus on a choice that seems right, and ask myself what the worst that can happen actually is. That "worst" usually isn't as bad as we think, but sometimes we just plain don't want to look at it.

    With that in mind, I weigh and analyze my various options pretty heavily, but I barely feel the anxiety. Now, I accept and appreciate my flexibility and day-by-day 'blank slate,' and I've moved on to other neuroses

    Yeah, I wasn't sure where to put this--I figured that the NFs would be most interested in this subject, but, yeah, it's open to everyone. I rarely post in the type-related forums, but here we are.

    People not being grown up enough to be self directed. I am constantly having to prompt other people to do the things they know they need to do. Just get in with it already, don't wait for a personal invitation from me.

    Things would be so much easier if we did this.....so why the hell are we doing that? And wtf does it take a committee and 6 months to just to decide this would be a better way?

    To me, the answers often seem simple but this whole death by committee thing keeps everyone in a perpetual loop of ineffectiveness. Someone just make a freakin decision please!
    Yeah, I agree. Sometimes, we just gotta confront situations, 'man up,' and do what we need to do.

    Work expands to fill the time that we've allotted for it. Sometimes, we allot way too much time--and, with a lil' bit of trimming, we can just get things out of the way, focus on the important aspects, and move on with our lives!

    And sometimes, someone needs to step up, be a leader, and make decisions. Leaders of small groups tend to emerge from those groups, and, often, they're not the same as those who were actually appointed to the position.

    I agree completely. Irritation, frustration, and more extremely, anger are my most common negative emotions. I generally do well at containing their expression, at least around others, but I definitely feel them. I also experience anxiety sometimes when I am waiting for things to fall into place; when I have done everything within my control, and just have to wait for the outcome.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Anger then agitation then melancholy and guilt is a common pattern for me under negative circumstances.

    I actually fit pretty well with the respective temperament for my MBTI type. Although, that of keirsey, especially, is way overblown. Imo it is, anyway.

    Frustration and anxiety are probably the most prevalent.

    Anger would be next which I try to keep well under control.

    Wow... take your pick.

    Anxiety, self-loathing, anger, irritation, hopelessness, loneliness, sadness, melancholy, guilt, shame, on and on..

    I suppose the emotion that I feel most frequently might be irritation. I am constantly irritated by people. This leads to anger usually.

    Geez. This whole "irritation" thing that many of us go through might be worth a thread itself!

    I don't know about you, but I'd get too irritated just thinking about what I get irritated about.
