Not torrentially, but that continuous gray drizzle.
I know exactly what it does to me. And even though I know how this weather plays with my mind I can’t seem to outmaneuver the effects.
I’ve noticed that days like this tend to put me in somewhat of a nostalgic mood. And not the pleasant, remember the good ole days variety, but the mulling over of past regrets, missed opportunities and dumb mistakes.
I get that everyone probably experiences this to some degree but I’ve notice an interesting correlation. For me at least.
One day whilst I was in one of these funks I decided to distract myself by taking a personality test. The test turned out ISTJ.
(I’ve found that personality testing varies for me based on my mood, the test in particular, and the style of the test — all reasons why I love what you are doing here at CT.)
Nevertheless, that gets me thinking.
Could the low energy state that I experience during these rainy days be shifting my focus more toward Si (I am Ne dominant according to CT.)?
Perhaps I do have baggage to deal with in my past.
But have any of you experienced a similar shift in focus under certain triggers? Like rain triggers me?
That said: let’s say that I am reveling in my inferior Si. What I feel is a deep attachment to those past memories as well as a fixation on resolving them. I feel defined by those events.
My current coping skill is pretty much to accept the past as the past, wallow in my nostalgia for the day, and to wait for a sunny day to turn my optimism back on (glad I don’t live in Seattle!)
To any Si dominants our there. Do you feel a need to resolve the past or perhaps to integrate it with your present? How do you make peace with your past?
I could be totally misapplying the psychology here, but I’m interested in your thoughts.
