    Default The Effect of Moods

    Personally, I realized that the mood I'm in effects what I do, but not what I think. Is this the way it is with everyone, or it it type-related?

    My mood affects everything. I am one with my mood.

    My mood affects what I do, what I think, but not what I feel.

    I believe there's a positive correlation between my mood and arrogance.

    Ah yes... feeling good and feeling like input from others is completely irrelevant.

    My mood effects everything in my life. Even big decisions. I changed my major to something completely different because I "felt" like it. So yeah I'm impulsive. Main reason I think I'm EP.

    Wow; looks like mood is a big deal to most people. Divided, what type are you?

    Supposed INTp. I think it's right.

    For information purposes, the reason why I chose what I did in the poll is that I think it has something to do with not being good at dealing with strong moods in others. And I don't really understand why anyone would want to deal with any strong moods from me, nor does it feel natural to express my moods to people. So I utilize and serve my moods by changing my activity, whereas some people utilize and serve their moods through expression with other people, as well as activity. I think that's the key difference. Some prefer to express their moods with others and some would rather remain quite neutral. The reasons I do not know; although I can see it possibly having more to do with Fe than anything else if we confine our speculations to the socionics psychological functions.

    edit: I predict ILI, LIE, LSE, and SLI to mostly fall into the activity only category.

    So you suspect it's -related. That would make sense.

    Yeah, basically. And having a strong and conscious Te function lends itself to having a weak and conscious Fe function. Or in other words, any behavior change is a result of the goal of Te task-completion efficiency and won't be at all personal. Whereas if Fe was weak and unconscious then it would most likely appear as a cause and effect scenario where taking action is more personal and less about efficiency.

    And feel free to disagree with me on this though because I'm kind of justifying my intuition on this.

    I suppose I should have been more clear. Does your mood affect your opinions?

    I think my mood mostly affects how much I will feel like talking with people/approach them. That's about it.

    I've come to the conclusion that moods influence everything. Those who honestly say that they're not easily influenced by their moods; well, their moods are simply not wild enough.

    I've noticed that with Fi ego types, they are effected by other people's moods, their own mood effects how they feel and think, whereas Fe ego types have moods but that they don't effect how they feel or think. This may have to do with the empathetic nature of Fi.

    When Fi sees that someone else is upset, it causes them to be or get upset.
    When Fe sees that someone is upset, they may try to talk to the person to cheer them up, but the other person's mood will not effect their own, as in, they will not walk away with this lamented feeling about "oh, that's so sad that Susan feels this or that and I wish I could help somehow."

    With Fi types being in a depressive atmosphere makes them feel depressed just for being in it.
    With Fe types, you can be in a depressive atmosphere but somehow shelter yourselves from being depressed or let down by the general mood.

    I noticed my SEE friend telling me how upset she was at her sister's picture. Her sister took a funky picture, wearing a skirt and inappropriately revealing her crouch/underwear; that just stood against her ideals and morals and she was voicing it out passionately to me and it made me look at my Fi in that situation; although I would not have been as upset as she was because I view things from the possibilities angle (possibly, she got caught in the moment and did not realize it), she looked right past and didn't even care about the possibility and just ranted off at the inappropriateness of her manners.

    Interesting how my moods shifted across our conversation in directions.

    This is one reason why I belive that Allie has Fe in her ego block.

    The real question is, from outside behavior, how do you observe which it is?
    1. Ask the person.
    2. I've noticed that in myself, I will continue talking about the situation that has had a deep effect on me, sometimes quite passionately.

    SEI is irrational and dynamic, EII rational and static. I think that while varying energy levels may be connected with rationality/irrationality, stable/varying moods are more of a static/dynamic thing - at least seems to work with people I know. (Note: of course dynamic means Fe in ego, no matter how bad, so it could simply be related to conscious rather than valued IEs, and the degree of external influence is another matter.)

    I mean peoples' moods are contagious to them, not everything, of course, for example the motivation for long-term great achievements. But that doesn't require empathy, I suppose, does it?

    No, not acting or rather acting to appear "cool".
    They make their moods contageous to others...other way around...lol
