  • People always act on their emotions no matter how long they consider unless they are doing mathematical calculations. Even then the reason they are doing it comes down to an emotion.

    Impulsive people act on the first emotion that come to them rather than allowing other emotions to come into play and inhibit the initial impulse.

    Ideally a person should have both capabilities, the ability to act instantly when stopping to consider would alter the situation in a bad way and the ability to control their impulses and consider when that is the best course.

    I've always thought of myself as a thoughtful person who considers things before acting but on the few occasions when instant action was called for I surprised myself by acting without any thought at all. It was like another person was in control of my body.

    • yeah, it's true that emotions play a role on every decision we make. I was basically asking about the first emotion that arises. :)

  • Like a 4. I'm pretty emotional but I can usually reign everything in and make myself not do anything. I also have anxiety, so doing things spontaneously and without planning isn't really my thing :P

  • Usually I'm a 6 or so, but I have my moments when an emotion gets too overbearing so I prefer to walk away or become distant before I do something idiotic.

    • what are you in general then?

    • 3or 4 . i try to always think things threw before acting. because there is usually something unseen that i would like to account for

    • ok :)

  • I am not impulsive unless I am excited. Usually everything is thoroughly planned out in my head.
