RE: Emotions: on/off vs varying intensities
Regarding the poll...

Are you asking a general question ("your" = one's)?
Are you are asking us as individuals ("your" = me)?
Or are you asking about those female creatures... see below:

The question is specific to your subjective experience.

I have two emotional states. 1. Erratic and 2. Unpredictable. I don't get to enjoy a level emotional state for very long. (Rarely to be honest)

Oh OK.

I have 3 states of emotion:

Placid
Acid
Flaccid

Depending on what and how much I've had to drink.

Never acrid?

RE: Emotions: on/off vs varying intensities
An extremely good question and not at all easy to answer.
I studied Albert Ellis's Rational Emotive Therapy when I was quite young and believe it helped me a little.

The guts of the theory went like this WE can control our thinking/The emotion follows the thought/ Therefore we can control our emotions ...........................oh yeah! well perhaps to a point. Ellis went on to point out that there was not much point in "being the best adjusted nut in the asylum".

Time on a forum can put my B.P up round 40 systolic/20 diastolic, a fact that indicates the emotive link there.

While I try not to emote negatively for my own sake and that of others I see emotive angst as a serious spmething to be dealt with as best as possible Huh
