    Yeah, criticisms(the ones that are delivered sarcastically) really unleash the inner devil in me I regret it though afterwards But at least I get to vent out negative emotions like that rather than sulking and blaming and asking myself "what ifs" and then crying uncontrollably because I can't take it any longer.

    P.S. My friends would never agree with what I wrote here. They say I'm too
    kind to have/vent out negative emotions. Guess they don't know me
    much.

    my moods don't swing, but they tend to shift quite slowly. i have to be careful as I tend to lean on the side of depressive if I spend too much time in my head or if I read up on current news affairs every day (except for animal rescue stories, they always give me that warm happy feeling inside!). dancing to music with a good beat and immersing myself in some activity or laughing helps to dispel it.

    Sometimes I'll have a day that just goes totally wrong and it's tough to shake :sad: I have to get really active to break out. Just driving around or reading isn't enough. Coffee makes it much worse for some reason. If I have more than 3 cups a day, I feel like the world is ending. Seriously ... caffeine apocalypse. But deep breathing and light meditation can do wonders in keeping these moods away.

    I'm more likely to feel blue if I don't take care of myself -- not getting enough sleep or eating properly or not exercising. I guess I need to keep my Se fighting fit to be happy. Does anyone else feel that way?

    Oh, and congratulations for making the Dean's List, Julie. That's a helluva accomplishment.

    I know exactly what you mean about caffeine apocalypse. I try and avoid caffeine since I've started on stimulant medication for ADD but even before that I'd use it like medication but by the 3rd or 4th cup I felt like my nerves were starting to crash in on themselves.

    Lack of sleep really does me in, I tend to get a really pessimistic outlook on everything, it's amazing how just one night of little sleep will do that and the change after a decent night's sleep. So on days like that, I keep my head low and practically hide in seclusion.

    I think you guys just get "people'd out" and don't demand alone time to recharge.

    I also don't think you know how to recharge yourselves when you are alone as well as the intp's do...being nt's the intps just have to grab a book or internet with a pet theory to recharge or let their mind wander and embrace their latest delicious cognitive sculpture...you guys may not have such an easy "just add water" solo escape, and since you may feel "bad" just leaving others when it "is time" to do so, you may let yourself get worn out.

    My isfp friend emails me when visiting home saying, "everybody is all over me for all kinds of reasons" (meaning they want advice, a listening ear, company, etc.). I told him that when he got home I was going to be all over him for just one reason...that is really all he needed to hear. Being an introvert, he really didn't want to rehash all of it and being an intp I sure didn't want to hear it. Had he been an nf he would have wanted to share how he had psychotherapized them, but as a sensor, he doesn't do that. I recognized that his isfp presence and energy probably did more than any nf's psychobabble could ever do for them (sorry, nf's...but unless you are prof. therapists, all of that is usually unsolicited and more about you).

    Anyway...I think isfp's are healthy, not mood swingers...just that they stop short of taking care of themselves so we see what we would all be like if we let ourselves give to that point.

    Be sweeter to yourselves and more confident.

    ^ I think you're right. I feel myself I need to take time to just do nothing for 30 minutes. Laying in a large tatami room with nothing in it really recharges me. Reading, using the PC all those things are fun but they still drain me. I need no stimulation for a short period every day. I sometimes (often) forget that.

    Tatami room.

    I believe ISFPs are very passionate, but do not have the means to control their emotions into something legible by other people, or otherwise do not feel that words are sufficient to justify what they are feeling.

    The ISFP sometimes takes the smallest things in life far too seriously and so is very easily hurt and finds it difficult to explain why. Some ISFPs here say they register few emotions, however, and this could be for a few reasons:

    1. They have controlled their emotions, safe in the knowledge they can release it elsewhere, through rest and amusement.
    2. Their weak attribute is aiding them. ISFPs with strong underlying T or J attributes may not feel as much emotion as others.

    Just to name a couple. I was about to name three but I forgot the third one.

    This is what I think from as far as I've studied anyway (look at me being an ISFP and covering myself in a discussion and all, ooh!)
    Hello. There'll be something here soon.

    Thanks to all who congratulated me on the Deans List. Seems like I am alot like other ISFPs with the moods and not being able to control them. I think that I control them if nobody knows what I'm feeling and I'm not expressing them. I just feel it internally.
