BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Questions for ABers about emotions
Posted by: ErinDarri, Wednesday, March 14, 2007, 6:00pm
I have a friend who I believe is AB (her sister is AB, and she seems to have a lot of AB qualities--she sure doesn't fit in with the other types.)  I want to type her.  I think she wants me to type her--at least she hasn't said no when I've brought it up.  I've purchased a kit and I carry it around with me, but she won't let me poker her.  (That is making me crazy.)

But the point of this thread is to ask other ABers if they seem to be more emotional during their menstrual cycle than other groups?  I read that ABers tend to have a more emotional response to stress.  Is this compounded by menstruating?

Sorry Erin, the only ABs I know are men...

I was going to make a comment about "or men who are with a female AB who gets emotional or a man who is an AB who gets emotional when his SO is"   ... but then it was convoluted so I didn't. :)

just getting .......very quick away from those locals ;) ;D

I reacted on stress merely like a B, became more calm and sorry what was or is stress??) ;) ;D if I can't do 7 things alltogether, I am not happy...no happyness...no stress ;) ;D .....but rarely out of
the track...hmmm yessss,  what stresses me and freaks me completely out is, when somebody cries in the car...or just curses around or blames other with words ::) this is for me like a physical hit....I do
really get under stress in such moments, and merely I become very calm, no words anymore and I get very crisped ::) :P  the same thing when I have to be with a driver who drives very fast and agressive...:P I get more and more little and feel very upset and bad, near to vomate ::)

Thanks for your insights, Isa.  I think that work stresses my friend out, but I think that it is her type that makes her susceptible to being stressed by work.

As for the needle... the lancets in the testing kits are smaller than most diabetic lancets, I think.  I really don't get that, but then I am the kind of person who likes to watch when I have blood drawn. (smarty)

I'm a very emotional person regardless if it is my time of the month or not.  But when it is, i'm very emotional!  I know better than to make any important decisions.   I tend to get depressed and the littlest thing makes me cry.  No violent mood swings just sadness and tears.  I feel i fit the ab type to a Tee.  i hope this helps your question.

And I thought I was the only one upset with the taxi driver in Greece. ;)

P.S.  Aha...the bonk on the head from the window...now I know why.   :D:D:D

Usually when my wife (A) gets upset or emotional, I am calm and just let her vent or help her settle down again.  

Only if I feel bad, do I tend to go overboard.  Of course, this is now...  Long ago I wasn't so calm...  I would blow up at the drop of the hat...  I didn't realize how much pain I was in constantly, until I found BTD and stopped eating corn for three weeks and this huge spaciousness developed in my lower head from ear level down to my shoulders.  I know it was from the corn because I got about two bites of something with corn syrup and the pain returned for about three hours - what a wake-up call.  It is really easy for me to not eat corn and its related products.  

If anyone else is in that much pain, I can easily understand why some people go off and do some of the wacko things we hear about on the news...  I'm still in some pain, but nothing like it was then.

rrrooostersis you are an E, me and I ;) so all is going inwards in my case and often people doesn't remarks how I am struggeling inside ;) ;D

and must be honest, nope I felt that this taxidriver knew all the little edges of those streets and for him it just was fun :P yyyykes ;) :D ...luckily Karensa sat infront ;) (smarty)(sunny)(whistle)


I think AB's are all + - emotional peoples, but when you are trained by observing not to get into the trap of emotional thingies, so you become more rational, means also how many of the % you might have from the A-side- and how many % from the B-side  :D


dearest  confrère ABJoe, may I recommend you warmestly to go for the Sarno's books *mind over backpain* and *the devided mind* ;) ::) just we are under such pressures mostly, and mostly it is up into our subconscious or even not here but just entirely consciousless ::) but it is here and most of the time because we have been trained to be aware and ready all the times to be able to go for *contre-affaires* when it is needed in that moment; this readyness cost's ya a lot of energies and sets up pains....just a w e s o m e ;D I know this, too ;) :K)

Isa--are those books related to religion or spirituality in any way-- Either traditional religion, alternative, anything?  I'd suggest them to my friend, but she is a very devout Christian, so she is pretty set in her beliefs, and the idea of even doing yoga is out of the question.

ErinDarri,  I hear you about how one's Christian conscience doesn't leaving room for participation in yoga....but I'd be willing to try Pilates.

I'm not sure how this will help you but here goes:

There's no PRE- M....its my behavior DURING that drives my hubby batty.  So according to him, the answer to your question is a resounding, Yes!   But,  maybe then again that's just his excuse! lol

I view myself as very logical, rational, reasonable and level headed, wanting to understand both sides of an issue but also just as much overly tenderhearted when watching movies, quick to anger when I see someone hurt another, always trying to find the best side of everyone, and excited by something new (hopefully not as badly as those Athenians in Paul's day).  

Some have said that AB's have dual personalities...but that doesn't make sense to me:  I'm me, I'm all of me and I'm still just me.  

I couldn't work in a place that I wasn't happy.  Otherwise, I get cast-iron butterflies in my stomach.  Not to say my work can't be stressful, but there's a difference being mistreated or just having a whole lot going on.   I once quit a job before I started it because after a weekend of considering how a prospective boss took the upper hand and talked me into a different job for which had no intention of applying, made me think again about what it would be like to work for such a person long term.

The only other AB's I know in real life are a brother and my biological father.  We sure do enjoy talking to each other  ;)

My other brother (Type A) was very hesitant to allow me to poke him with the lancet....he has a serious case of white-coat syndrome.  After I got his tentative yes, I had to distract him like crazy in order to poke him.  He did great, but I don't think at the time that I really appreciated how hard it was for him to allow that to happen to him.

I'm not particularly emotional.  I might cry during the Hallmark Special, but I allow myself that liberty.  It seems to me that the PMS thing is a different system...hormones.  They can probably wreak havoc with any female.

I agree with Marianne:  "I view myself as very logical, rational, reasonable and level headed, wanting to understand both sides of an issue..."  I try to deal with stress head on, asking what are my options?

And I might guess that your friend was a Type A instead of AB.  

It's exciting to see so many ABs in one place!

Can I post for my daughter?  I thought we were raising a little manic-depressive girl till I started reading more in "Live Right" where I learned that it was just part of being AB.  She has very emotional swings from one extreme to the other and she doesn't even have weird hormones yet.  Knowing about ABness will help prepare me for helping her through the teenage years and beyond.  She's always been extremely talkative and sensitive and unusually spiritually-minded (we're Christians too).  The other morning she said, "Mama, I dreamed about Jesus last night.  He was bright, but his brightness wasn't to bright for me to look at."

Thank you for AB discussions!

I love reading all of your AB responses? All my life I have felt like I am in the middle on most issue's able to see both side's of everything. I don't think I am over emotional,just passionate about my belief's and interest's.

Well, then I have hopes that my daughter's emotions will eventually settle into passions.

Wow, very well said!  Fortunately, Mom and Dad both understood my ABness, since my Dad is one as well!  All the kids in school just thought I was weird.  I was obviously, since ABs are only about 5% of the population and Rh(-) is less than that.  I was probably the only one like me that any of them had seen!  (I graduated from a small school.)

I was voted most unpredictable in my graduating class...  They just didn't understand me!
