You Are Very Sentimental
You are a very sentimental person. We wish there were more of you around! Why? Because sentimental people CARE. They care about their memories, their childhood, their family and friends. They even care about strangers in trouble. Most things you go through hit you hard and raw.<br><br> You may try to distance yourself or keep your heart in a hardened shell, but sooner or later you will bleed for others and for yourself. The downside, of course, is that you can be TOO emotional, and that goes double for the bad emotions, such as envy, anger and fear. You can be goaded into rage, saddened by events and afraid for your loved ones. We say: embrace it. As long as you can feel - do it, before you lose this precious ability few seem to have these days.
You may understand sentimentality in others, or you may not, but in both cases - you don't feel like a sentimental person, according to your answers. Now, it may be that you've always had little use for extra sentimentality. It doesn't mean you don't have emotions, it's just that you feel other people can be a bit too dramatic with theirs. <br><br>You miss people and things from the past, but you are much more focused on the present and future. You don't spend hours dreaming about what used to be when there is now to consider. You don't hold on to many objects from the past because, once enough time has passed, you realize they are just THINGS, and their time has passed along with everything else. You don't actively fight being sentimental, it just takes a whole lot more to get you teary eyed than it would most people.
Sentimental But Within Reason
When it comes to sentimentality, your answers indicate you are, on average, not overly sentimental, yet not dvoid of it either. You stand at a comfortable place in the middle, and are more affected by chains of events then by your inner tendencies.<br><br> What do we mean by chains of events? To create sentimentality, things need to remind us of other people or things that happened long ago. Alternatively, something needs to happen to make us emotional. These things may happen all the time, or very rarely, depending on elements in your environment.<br><br> If you live close to where you were a child, they may happen all the time. If, for example, you live abroad, there may be very little. If you were overly sentimental, that wouldn't matter, you would find a myriad of little things to make you emotional. So, a smell, a face or a thought can make you sentimental, but all within a logical range.
