I was thinking the other day about how the body tends to get accustomed to certain cycles and behaviors which can eventually produce a repetitive pattern. This applies to many aspects of a person’s life like sleeping, eating, gestures, thinking, etc. What interested me the most is when this applies to emotional attitudes, meaning the usual emotion you feel most of the time. Let’s assume that a person has a calm and cheerful emotional attitude but due to a change or an event it becomes closer to sadness and desolation. If the latter attitude persisted for a long while does it replace the usual innate one because the person is now in a different kind of emotional cycle or pattern? Can this person return to his/her previous emotional attitude easily or it would require an adjustment phase considering the event that caused this no longer applies? If one is aware of such things then there is a better possibility that the person can adjust far better than someone who isn’t aware of such patterns.
My mind seemed to have leaped between the different qualities of humans trying to find a pattern between them. I’m not sure if it exists though some indications point in that direction.
